We are doing everything backwards this year - we are celebrating the holiday by making a mess instead of cleaning. The living room looks like someone blew up a library.


It's great, really, though keeping us busy.

tonight we got through one shelf from the office, ruthlessly culling fiction (first step in the eventual hope of reorganizing the space). That does't sound like much, does it? but the shelf is 8 linear feet, shelved four rows deep with paperback. I'd say we managed to part with almost half (though this is probably going to be the easiest shelf). We have three big boxes to go to the used book store.

We are also transferring video to dvd, and throwing away the old tapes. We played through about 10 tapes today, and managed to throw about 8 away. There was much less stopping to watch things than I was afraid there would be (But OMG! Ed Feldman and Joe L'Erario!!! How I miss you!! I know that won't mean anything to people who were not watching Philadelphia PBS about 10 years ago, but they are the Furniture Guys. I am still hoping to find that I might not have taped over the episode where they dressed up as Alice B Toklas and Gertrude Stein and showed us how to snake a drain)


I feel like I have about 3 inches of dust adhered to my skin now.... mmmm... bath.....
