The fundamental problem is, of course, that I own too much stuff. Books, CDs, craft supplies - I swear that my yarn stash is equal to at least 3 sheep and a half an alpaca. I've been unpacking as I go along, so the books are largely on shelves (except for the unread stack, which I stuck on a closet shelf for now). I set up the TV and VCR, but I still have to do the stereo. I have barely started on the kitchen (largely because of the awfulness of putting up shelf paper).
On the plus side, this is a great opportunity to really go through stuff. I've gotten rid of a few things already (via freecycle - fabric remnants and a quilt bat, since I finally accepted that I don't really want to take up quilting, the electric frying pan I used twice around 1996 which had been taking up counter space since, etc.) and have been separating out more stuff to get rid of as I unpack.
I also have a growing list of things I need to buy, which includes desk chairs (yes, plural - I needed to replace the one at my desk for a long time, but I also have a built in "study nook" in the condo" and a folding chair is not really adequate there), a filing cabinet for the study nook, sheets with deeper pockets because I didn't think about that when buying the new mattress, etc. But between the new mattress (tempurpedic - pricy but cozy), the new futon (to replace the sofa which was falling apart) and the new computer, not to mention a couple of plane tickets ... let's just say that I don't want to spend any money for a while.
My goal is to get everything else over here tomorrow, so I should really stop playing with the computer and go back to work.
