I have reached an impasse with my books where I need another shelf. I have unpacked everything save two boxes and there is just no more room left. I am about to head our to buy shelves, but I thought I'd sit down and write up a quick update first.

I haven't been blogging due to having no progress to report on the house. Today was my day to get things done, so I tackled the big job first - the errant plumbing. It was not as difficult to fixed as I feared it would be. I unhooked the elbow pipe underneath the sink and drained out all the water. Then, I ran a snake down the pipe and it pulled out a rubber glove that I had used during all of the painting madness. Once the glove was removed, the pipes functioned perfectly and I am now able to do laundry. Yay!

Now I am undertaking the task of moving things around and unpacking. It always surprises me to see how much stuff I actually have. It makes me want to simplify more. I keep throwing things away, but never seem to get on top of knowing what to keep and what to toss.

Off to pick up bookshelves. Happy weekend!
