December is here. It’s time to celebrate! Not only is Christmas just around the corner, but our family is officially in our new house, having moved the very last box of stuff over late last night. Hooray!!
We spent the entire month of November s-l-o-w-l-y moving, room by room — which explains why I only wrote four posts all month. Sorry about that! We were on a time crunch.
The inside of our house looks fairly organized now (I’ll post some photos in a week or so), but after that final few days’ push, my garage currently looks like this:
Does that mess look overwhelming to you? To me, it looks like a challenge. How much of it can I get put away before Doug gets home from work?
Of course, this is what’s left AFTER we had a garage sale last weekend and parted with a literal ton of belongings (or more), including lots of furniture and two front loading washer/dryer sets:
The hardest thing I had to part with? My nursery furniture (sniff sniff). I painted those little lambs on that toy box myself, the same day I went into labor with our firstborn. That was 28 years and 12 children ago!
From the looks of my new garage, we’ll need to have another sale in the very near future. Until then, I’ll be playing an extended game of “What Goes Where.” Ha!
Since it wouldn’t be fair for me to have ALL the fun, I thought I’d post a related game that you can play, too. I call it “Who Gets What?”
You’ll have to draw on your knowledge of movies, literature, and history if you want to get a perfect score. Print off a few copies and try your skill. Set a timer, compete with your family, or pass it out at your next Christmas party and challenge those in attendance to play.
When you’re ready to see how you did, just check this answer key. No fair peeking early.
Have fun. I’ll try to post again soon, but for now, I’ve got to get back to work.
