So. Hello. Welcome to the first edition of The Basement Chronicles.
I’m your host. The Incomparable Asskicker.
Ha. I get so cocky after just a week of action taking. (Okay…a couple weeks…)
Really, above anything else, I’m just really fucking proud of myself. I’m nowhere near done. I haven’t made any trash runs or donations drop offs. But I’m in the game and I’m just doing it and it feels really good.
I have pictures somewhere of my basement from a few years ago. Times it was at its worst or had just recently been organized but was still overflowing with stuff. I’ve never tackled it like this before. I’ve never led with such intent.
This is what it looked like February 6th when I began.
That pathway was only there so we had room to get a new washer to the other side of the basement the week prior. Previously it had been a much smaller, much more treacherous pathway that was only used when we had to do laundry.
Progress #1. (2.6)
I cleared off R’s art table because she hasn’t used it in over a year. I made it my “go through these” table. I wanted to have the hard work front and center, but know I didn’t have to put my energy there until I was ready. (I’m still not ready and that’s still perfectly okay.)
More to come of my progress soon! This is so exciting!
