We got through lots of box­es today and sam­bear took emp­ty box­es and oth­er stuff to the dump­ster. Yay! The shelv­ing is set up in the stor­age room, and the only stuff that is sup­posed to be on them is there. Most every­thing is off the porch, which is good, as it isn’t sup­posed to be used for stor­age. I sat out there for a bit today—that was nice.

I found a suit­case that real_pochacco was sup­posed to pack and take with him to his moth­er’s house, as well as a box full of the old cos­tumes he and lit­tle­fire­fae were going to take with them. And lots of dirty laun­dry (cloth­ing and damp tow­els) he had stuffed in his clos­et rather than putting in his hamper—grrr! Ah well—we’d already stripped all three kids’ beds so as to wash all of their linens while they’re gone. They’ll have nice fresh bed­ding when they get home. It’s just a bit more laun­dry to do. I’d rather do it now than have it con­tin­ue to grow bac­te­ria in the dark.

shad­owkatt’s bathing suit is hang­ing in the hall bath­room, where she put it after swim­ming yes­ter­day morn­ing. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it should be with her, as she’s on the way to Flori­da with her grand­par­ents. Whoops. So all three kids did­n’t do so well on the pack­ing thing.

sam­bear and I are look­ing at an entire week with­out any chil­dren in the house. This is a first in our near­ly five years together—even kid-free week­ends have been rel­a­tive­ly rare! It feels a bit odd, but we’re def­i­nite­ly NOT complaining.

I’m going to go clean the tub, then soak in it. We have clean sheets, too 🙂
