Son of Storage

It's Friday - yay! I thought I would post something a bit more upbeat after my last post about the Bataan Museum. It's important to know about and honor such things, but then we need to lift our spirits. And I can't think of anything that makes us smile more than ... Another episode of Our Life in Storage!

When last we visited our Storage Bunker, it looked like this:


Nice and cozy, yes? But wait ... we aren't done because the storage bunker is holding stuff that will stay in storage when we hit the road AND stuff we are taking with us in the RV. The BIG problem is that the Storage Bunker also has to hold the furniture that we are living with in the apartment! And that has to go in BEFORE we can take out the stuff for the RV, because we have to go get the RV and bring it back here first! I know, it's complicated!!

So, in the spirit of our mottos, Make it Easy and Keep it Simple, we decided to rent a smaller Storage Bunker to put just the RV stuff in. That frees up space in the big Storage Bunker for the rest of our furniture.

So, meet Son of Storage Bunker, where the RV stuff is:


Now when we come back with the RV, we'll just empty this sucker out, turn in the key, and off we'll go!

This weekend I'm writing (working on the sequel to The Christmas Village) and hope to be through chapter five by Sunday night! Have a great weekend everyone :-)

    1. I know - a little scary, isn't it? But lots of it is things like tupperware that's in a box now, but will end up in a cabinet. So, it's not as bad as it looks. I hope :D

    1. I'd love that too Karen! Do you have any plans to come up to Santa Fe? If not, we could see if we can figure something out. It's going to be a crazy next two months, but if you were coming up here we could surely make it happen. I can give you a free pass to a yoga class too if you wanted to fit one in :-)

  6. I love going through areas to organize them and get rid of everything that isn't keeping it simple! It's such a great feeling.

  10. That reminded me of that puzzle where you have three people either side of a river, and a boat, but only two people can be in the boat, and they all have to get to the same time, but one person has to stay in the boat... Only your answer was much simpler!

    1. Thanks Debby - I whacked away at chapter 3, and I have already got the bones of 4 and 5, so I think I'll have a decent first draft of 1 through 5. Thank you so much for putting my book in your cart - I hope you'll enjoy it xo
