About to make some progress

I went out yesterday on my own for the first time since we've moved here. I needed to pick up a prescription at the drugstore and I wanted to also wander through some of the other stores there. It's about a half-hour's walk from here and there are also a couple of buses I can take to get there, if I wasn't feeling up to walking.

I was determined to walk yesterday because I haven't done any exercise in weeks and I've been eating way too much candy and other bad things lately. I'm happy that I was able to do the walk although I think I might have overdone it a bit because I was very tired when I got home. In the future I'll either not wander through the stores or I'll take the bus home, at least until I've got my strength back up.

Today I'm taking it a bit easier: I hope to unpack our books and to do some laundry. The books are going into the spare room (aka the guest room/library/computer room) and because the books are all sorted it should be a straightforward job to put them on the shelves. Once the book boxes are cleared from that room, we'll be able to finish setting it up and hopefully use it as a staging place for stuff from the great room.

I'll be happy to make some progress on the unpacking. Not just so that I stop freaking out about the stuff all over the place, but also so that the house will be ready for our sofa, which is on its way! We got a call yesterday telling us that it was ready to be delivered and we have until Monday to make room for it. I can hardly wait to actually have proper furniture in the great room and a neater, tidier environment there.
