So I sold my filing cabinet while my files were still in it. In order to get it out the door, I took everything out and put it all on the floor. Same with a bookshelf, and a fold-up guest bed that was serving as a junk rest.
So now my office/guest room is filled with stuff to sort through. Some of it will be carefully filed for easy access; other stuff will be put into storage (not much!). Other stuff will be sold at next Saturday’s moving sale, and the rest will be thrown out.
I had yesterday to do it, and I failed. I had this afternon and evening to do it, and I failed again. The fact that there is no tv to distract me is irrelevant. I spend my time driving around the city looking for a) food, b) a cheap baggage alternative. Either that, or surfing the internet. Lame. But just looking at that room makes me discouraged; I just want to close the door on the mess and check my email.
Tomorrow will be a great day. Tomorrow I will accomplish a) emptying the office/guest room, and b) lining up the stuff I want to take with me to China. It will happen. It shall be done. One day more!
