After almost 18 years at this location‚ S. Best Designs and SusanBest Jones is moving on. OH‚ WHAT A MESS THAT MAKES!
This moving process is not for the feint of heart. I started planning it 7 months ago. Before I could do anything about moving I had to clean out a lot of stuff (not only mine but also quite a bit of my families stuff too) and fight a VERY bad flea infestation. That’s behind me now‚ what hasn’t been sold‚ given away or thrown away is mostly all in boxes. I mean boxes everywhere! I am a bit of a pack rat‚ I do like stuff‚ but in my defense‚ I do use a lot of that stuff.
My office these last 18 years has been in what was the original house. A small bungalow style house that they built a bigger house on to. One thing I am not going to miss is the nonheated breezeway that I have to pass through to get to my office. Not so bad in good weather but in cold weather‚ it’s so bad. So I am moving my office from a house‚ small one room‚ yes but still a house to a room in my new place! I’ve spent a lot of time looking around at all I have accumulated in this house/office wondering what I don’t need moving forward. I think I’ve narrowed it down but it is going to be a tight fit. My profession does not run just on just a laptop‚ I have books‚ I have art supplies‚ drawing table‚ file cabinets‚ shelves and more shelves and my farmhouse table desk. I have years of printed samples from when I only did print work and papers and more papers! I’ve made many trips to the recycling center with “business paper” and many trips to the Boy Scout shed where they collect other paper. I’ve made lots of trips with all that old equipment that “still works but”‚ if this isn’t the time to toss it then I don’t know when is! I still have one more laser printer‚ that works but out of ink. It’s a crazy thing that it is cheaper to buy a new printer with ink in it than to replace the cartridges. I also still have an old tower computer that has to go. Getting close.
It seems like I’ll never get it all done‚ but moving day is next Tuesday and next Tuesday it will be done. Or maybe not since I started writing this blog. Turns out that closing dates are a bit of a moving target!
I don’t want to think of what comes next! Wish me luck.
Still open for business‚ still getting things done.
