Sometimes my life just goes from adventure to calamity, adventure to calamity.
On the weekend after I wrote my last post Hailey arrived from Whistler to help me organize a major sale we've been planning for quite a long time - to move out of the 10' x 10' storage room we've kept in Victoria since we moved from there (read: MAJOR STASH REDUCTION).
We took the ferry into Victoria on Monday and spent Monday and Tuesday completely gutting the room and getting stuff out onto tables (at our son Jason's club, where the storage room is), organized and priced. Got to spend both evenings on beach picnics with the boys and Mischa ... and was too tired to take any pictures!
On Tuesday evening we went to a coffee shop so I could fire up my laptop to check my email, do some Welcome Wagon admin stuff, and invite you all to the sale. Well. To make a long story shorter, my computer was broken. Badly broken. So broken that I had to spend well-earned stash sale proceeds on a new one.
The rest of the week since then has been a bit of a blur ... the sale ran Thursday, Friday and Saturday (many thanks to those of you whom I'd emailed before I lost your email addresses!), and then it took Sunday to sort all the leftovers again before we came back here to Salt Spring. Hailey and I will be going in again tomorrow to make sense of what has
to come back here to the Island -- we'll still have to rent a small
storage space here. Here's a pic of one small shelf of the stuff I had for sale:
So... I'm exhausted. And I got a cold somewhere along the way. And I have a new computer that I should be happy about. And I haven't got a whole lot of info and data that I had last week. At the very least, I'd love it, if you've been in my email address book, if you would email me at skipper at mvwindwalker dot com so I have your email address again -- thanks!
And I still need to find storage. :}
