I took most of the stuff out of the trunk and went to a self-service car wash to use the vacuum. I managed to get the trunk vacuumed as well as the floor and seats inside the car, enough so I could go to the market and lay in a few provisions for Mary and Joey and of course me. Came back to Mary's place. I have been sorting through the crates: coffee maker, grinder, books, maps, dried beans, lime oil, oatmeal, cleaning stuff...I see no way to organize it that makes any real sense.
But I'm getting rid of trash, cleaning up, repacking, and I think in the end it won't be so bad. A little more like other people.
One thing I have worried about with my new house is if I can maintain it in a good fashion. After all these years of not doing such a great job in that department can I reform? I don't think it will be a walk in the park, and I do think I would do well to get a house cleaner in at least once a month. Enough to keep me somewhat even. Then maybe. Maybe.
