Manic Attic

You all know what my attic looks like.

(picture added for dramatic effect - may or may not resemble actual attic)

As I've been sick quite a bit lately, my folks had offered to take the kids for the weekend to give me some R&R. Kim said it would be the perfect time to clear out the attic.....while she was away to visit one of her friends for some R&R of her own (this sounds bit harsher as it is, but I work best without her). Sjors kindly offered to help me out so we got cracking and spent the entire Saturday sorting and stacking stuff. It wasn't easy, I had to take quite a few breaks as I have the stamina of a dead horse atm, but in the end we did it.

Kim's side looks a bit messy now, but she and her friend will get to work on Sunday and I've left her a lot of empty boxes and crates on the right side next to the vacuum.

My end....it is still quite a lot, but considering you could not even set foot in the attic this morning. Quite a bit of stuff on the right side of the room is sorted and ready to be sold off. All of my ammo cans, camping and military gear is going on the chopping block....my hiking and camping days are over, my body can't handle long hikes anymore, never mind fully packed with gear. Also, around the corner.....

2 stacks of shipping cases full of stuff ready to be sold off. Tomorow is my day off with a trip to my folks to pick up the kids, and on monday the sorting and listing starts all over again....

Might even get some more hobby time in. Who knows.
