The other day, Husband went into said guest room, looked around, came back out and said it was starting to look like the TV show Hoarders (ouch)! Well, maybe not quite that bad but he does have a point. I mean, if we were to have unexpected company, there would be some major scrambling (and panic) to get that room in order.
So, the Sorting Saturday mission was to get the top of the bed cleared off. As in find permanent homes in the files, or wherever, for those items. Done. Mostly. At least now someone can sleep in there.
Slowly the documents and artifacts are making their way into their new homes in boxes labelled according to family. It's a slow and sometimes painful process but we are getting there.
What I am now beginning to realize is that all of this "stuff" is not going to fit in the Archival Closet. So the next challenge is to figure out a way to utilize the limited space in the Archival Closet more efficiently. Stay tuned.
