Unboxing

or what you find when you start opening things

So far, a pair of slippers I had completely forgotten I owned, and mounds of trash the day that the Teamsters go on strike and cease garbage collection service for my building. What fun!🙂

But seriously I have finished the move from hell, during which time I literally got called by an elevator repairman who had trapped himself in the elevator I needed working to complete my move! And during which time over 5 different repairpeople from that same elevator company, over the course of many days would visit the building trying mostly in vain to fix the elevator from hell.

I now have a living room full of boxes which I have begun to go through, slowly but I am making decent progress in figuring out what needs to go where and in identifying large sections of stuff which I no longer need, when this is all completed, hopefully by the end of this weekend, I will have my home in the best shape that it will ever have been in! So that is one very positive effect of all of this effort.

Tomorrow I will be mostly dealing with getting my webserver back from the dead, somehow the move crashed my system very hard, so we will have to spend a lot of time trying to figure out what went wrong and fix it, I’m most seriously worried that it may have been a hacker attack of some form, which would really and truely suck.

In any case, for today I am going to nap a bit, then get back to the task on hand of going through boxes and closets and piles until I have made room for all of the new items from my office which I now have to keep here at home (and/or have found and identified items which I can either sell, donate or throw completely away. Lots of work but very satisifying as well.
