We have moved almost all this stuff out and now getting ready for step 2: paint.
Good bye piece-meal set-up and Ikea corner desk and blackboard wall which seemed like a good idea at the time.
What I have learned about myself in the last 48 hours: I must crave the pressure. Sick but true. I like to jump right in, but this time, maybe I bit off more than I could chew? Yes. the answer to that is: "yes".
We are leaving next week for our anniversary holiday for a road trip in Wyoming and Montana. This week I am tearing my studio apart. Four bags of garbage, four bags of recycling and a giant box of giveaways and a few Craig's list items. What was I thinking?
So in between trying to remember where we put the boxes for last minute orders, un-drilling shelves, spackling and looking for vacation wear (oh yeah and places to stay?), here are a few notes from the wreckage. Thanks to you who wrote with great ideas and advice, Alexis and Maria and Katrina (who recommended this which has helped me tremendously in the last 48 hours...and did I leave anyone out? Uhhh, Cindy (!) who sent me some some treats with some great music to pack up and cough up dust to. And of course Rachel, who put the tack on my seat. Now I just keep e-mailing and saying things like, "set me straight Rachel, just set me straight..."
