stuff and boxes
There was a motivation - family coming. There was a deadline - that day. So Princess Morag finally did something about the boxes of stuff that had been sitting on the coffee table, embarrassingly for the last five months, since they moved in. "It doesn't have to be perfect" she told herself, "just better than it was". And it is better than it was. However, now there are two full boxes, and two empty boxes on top. But they have been rearranged so it is no longer the first thing you see when you walk in the door, and it does not obscure the view from the kitchen towards the door, so Princess Morag is more able to see people when they walk in.
The two bags of too-small clothes were swapped with one bag of fit the children/won't fit in the already too full drawers/closets. And new Valentines' stuff in new Valentines' baskets were given even though last years are still lingering around. Old stuff, new stuff, too much stuff.
