Every time I think I have this place unpacked, or clean, or ready for company I get hit in the face with the overwhelming realization that I am nowhere near done with this place! And believe me, having a “project man” in the house does not help. With the “new” car coming home in a couple weeks we have discovered that we are going to have to empty the garage to make sure it will fit. This would be just fine if we had space in the condo (reminder: this is a 1 bedroom condo) for all the stuff in the garage. Plus, every time I go out to the garage to bring boxes in, I’m reminded that it is summer in Southern California and is therefore a billion and a half degrees outside.

Saturday when I went to my cousin’s grad party, my grandparents picked me up and were finally able to see our adorable place. Where did all the unpacked and uncategorized stuff end up? Hidden away in the garage :). But now I have to bring it all in and start really deciding what is necessary and what can be given up. We just don’t have the space for all of the excess. I know if you haven’t used it in 6 months, you don’t really need it. I’m also frustrated because I haven’t been able to have help from my love. It seems every weekend at least one day is completely full, and the other day he needs to just relax before going back to a  busy work week. We need organization, downsizing, and order. All things that make a small space livable. If we had only the things currently in the condo, and none of what’s in the garage we’d probably be ok, somewhat. haha.

Ok… enough ranting, onto being productive about this! But first… Air conditioner, on!
