Unboxing Day

Gretchen had threatened an assault on the library, which still has a number of boxes left unpacked since the renovation in the summer of 2015. Late this afternoon, I decided to take a run at it.

I managed to empty and break down three medium U-Haul boxes. Not all of the things in them have arrived at their final resting places, but it's progress. This gets us down to two medium boxes in the room, both of which seem to contain mostly "kid-stuff" of one kind or another.

In the meantime, we found (in no particular order):

  • The Raiders of the Lost Ark framed mini-poster that Gretchen gave me, which will hang over the pinball machine in the basement once it is unearthed.
  • My SCA knife
  • The French language manual for the Yamaha mixer, which has now gone into recycling
  • Julie's Fluttershy stuffed pony
  • My missing baseball glove :)
  • Two Cardinals baseball caps, one that fits, one that doesn't
  • A whole bunch of Cubs bobblehead dolls from ballpark giveaways
  • And other items too numerous to be listed here...

    Hey, it's progress!
