Changing Plans

I'd suggested to daisy_knotwise that we spend some time sorting out the boxes in the basement that need to go back on shelves while Katie took her afternoon nap. But Gretchen needed to do some Capricon work on the computer, so by the time she got down to the basement, I'd busied myself by cleaning off one of the old shelves in the basement and sorting it into sheep and goats.

The goats included some old cans of paint and varnish that had hardened into uselessness, along with a bunch of leftover cassette inserts for cassettes that we'll never run more of. The former will wait for a hazardous material recycling day; the latter have gone into the recycling bin.

When that was done, I pulled out the old shelf, laid down carpet tile, then pulled out a second old shelf so I could carpet under all the space that the new shelf would need. Finally, I build two of the new shelves, leaving just two to go in. One of the shelves in the new set was bent and will have to go back to the store, but I had a spare shelf to replace it with, so that wasn't a problem.

And Gretchen managed to consolidate two boxes of old junk down to one box, so she made progress too.

There is light at the end of this tunnel. Somewhere. :)

  • Finally

  • One (Or More) Thing(s) At a Time

    The trick around here is managing to multitask. The problem is a finite number of virtual machines to do it with. :)

    K wandered by my office today and was commenting on time travel and time stop powers. So I asked her to bring up my guitar from downstairs and I sang…
