Boxes and a board

April 7, 2009

Last weekend I finally summoned the energy to pack up the friend’s stuff that was scattered around this bedroom to dry. Put it all in new cardboard boxes and they went back down to the basement. Not sitting on the concrete floor this time! So all of that chaos is out of sight now.
