This is a follow-up to an earlier post, “Living in Triage“.
As I wrote earlier, I had high hopes for our new shed. Our lives are chaotic and disorganized, and our house reflects that (especially the garage). But this summer’s theme is TAKE NO PRISONERS!! and we’re off to a great start. We needed the shed to be able to start the process…and it’s been everything we hoped for!
A reminder of what our garage looked like before:
After we got the shed built and were able to start to move some things out there, we started to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a pic of the halfway point:
And with the ball rolling, we had the motivation to be able to keep things moving and REALLY start to clean. We threw things away, we gave things away, we sold things. As we started to see space on the floor clearing, as paths were freed up to move about, we got more and more motivated. And here is where we are now:
And the view from the driveway:
It feels *UNREAL*. And inspiring. And that energy has motivated us to continue the cleaning, purging, and organizing process inside as well. We are not done in the garage; still some things to sort through and get rid of, but we are in a great place, ready and excited to move forward.
Out of triage.
Into ICU, and then…RECOVERY.
