Packing...

Packed one largish box. I'm out of saved dish barrels, so this is a "large" moving company box. All the baking pans are now packed, plus some plastic serving stuff, drawer miscellany, and, well, more kitchen stuff.

Lots still to go.

Was interrupted by a fat rodent waddling across the kitchen floor. Maybe a large mouse, but it didn't look right. It looked rather more like a mole, really, but I haven't heard of moles as house pests. Didn't get a good look, as it was out of the door and moving down the hall before I reacted and then I wasted time looking for something to use to capture it. And calling for the cats, neither of which came to help.

The beastie had disappeared before I got down the hall. Will have to look for signs of destruction in the pantry, and set a trap if the cats don't solve the problem for me. This was the first ever rodent spotting in this house, so I'm hoping it was just a one-time occurrence and not signs of an infestation.

I have really enjoyed reading about your renovation process. Keep posting!

regarding the rodent: cats are just never around when you need them, are they? My poor spice has been 'visited' by rodents twice in our married life. Both times he was sitting down in the bathroom, so he was not able to make a fast escape.

I suspect the LJ reports will become much more necessary as my stress level goes up--this will be the place to vent, to get sympathy, and to pray that the whole process will be over some day and I'll really have a nice kitchen. And cat room. And laundry. Not to mention more bookshelves...

Isn't it amazing, the sheer volume of *stuff* that one accumulates? If you decide you need to simplify, freecycle.org is your good friend [but then, you already knew that].
