My arms are *killing* me. I have several boxes of glass and ceramics and dishes and whatnot to go through before Tuesday, but the offsite storage unit is totally empty and closed. Today I'm going to drop all Ji's crap off at her place on her driveway and let her deal with it, and then I never have to deal with her again.

Today is going to be exhausting. I'm already tired. But it's okay. They'll come, they'll take crap away, and it'll be out of my house. And me being tired today means that they can take it all in one shot. And then I can move totes to the store room where they belong, and I'll be able to get the Arizona room empty and start work on the guest room and office, which will have the effect of also clearing up my art room.

Almost every room is being changed or re-themed. Or actually themed. My batroom is staying the same, and the bedroom has never really had a theme, so it's not getting one, as I haven't found one that I liked beyond my colour scheme. But there's theming or at least a cohesiveness to the remainder of the house that there never was before, which I like. It'll be nice to have it all done, painted, etc. But even the progress I've already made is amazing.

One step forward, even if it's a baby step. You have to live through this moment to get to the next, Medea.
