In many, many ways it is easier to "set up shop" than it is to box everything up and put it all away. Even so, it has taken me the better part of a week to get things arranged and it's still not quite all done.
Tuesday was getting big strokes done. Wednesday I spent most of the day organizing my new studio. Thursday was working in the garage and collapsing the mountain of boxes and organizing all the tools and the food storage. There is something *deeply* satisfying about arranging the cans and boxes on shelves and taking inventory of what you've got and how much of it.
It was also gratifying to have Lisa come home every night and give me big WOWs noting how much I had accomplished. She'd jolly well better be appreciative. It not for me she'd still be living out of boxes.
