The Ugly Truth

It’s been hard to come up with the bandwidth to post since my life has no routine right now. My mind is a reflection of the chaos in my new home. It’s much easier to share my accomplishments than my shortcomings.

Would it fit? We got a bigger truck just in case

I decided to tell you the ugly truth here. I’ve had my ‘stuff’ here for over a month already and my place looks very much like a hoarder’s home. There is stuff everywhere and nowhere to put it…yet. It’s a total embarrassment as progress is slow.

As before in my manufactured home, I wanted the house to tell me what it wants. I hung no pictures so everything is sitting on the floor waiting. For what?

I sold three large bookcases that I didn’t want to move again. They were starting to show wear due to many moves. IKEA has no inventory in this area of the bookcases I like and there is nowhere here to buy anything similar. So, my son is building some to fit what little space I have to put anything. That will take time.

Where does it all go

I also left behind the flimsy drawers that held up the sewing table, which is a 2×8 sheet of plywood.

The move was hard in many ways. The movers came late in the cold day. We were already exhausted shuffling around things and chilled to the bone. The movers tied nothing down so my son did his best to tie up what was obviously going to come crashing down.

It worked and very little broke. At least nothing I couldn’t live without. I can thank my son for driving the 1500 miles very gently. The offloading was quick. Again, I had hired help. It was worth it to save our strength to put things away. The kids helped me so much getting things where they needed to be when I could no longer do more than point. I’m ever so grateful for that help.

When I put the quilt Emily made on my bed, I was home and cozy.

I’ve unpacked almost everything except some books. Until there are shelves, they remain in stacks of boxes. I look at it all and shaking my head, make a cup of tea and head to bed hoping the next morning will bring a fresh round of energy.

Still no home yet.

In the meantime, I’ve had appointments with a new pulmonologist, chiropractor, and have been lucky enough to get into pulmonary rehab. That just means that they make me exercise while tracking my oxygen level, blood pressure and heart rate. I was rewarded with a handicap placard and 24/7/365 oxygen supply.

my leash inside. Oxygen concentrator.

I’m acclimating to the altitude a second time and doing quite well in spite of the fact that some sort of oxygen apparatus follows me everywhere now. The rehab techs are impressed with my tenacity. I’m hoping to need less oxygen as time goes on. That’s the goal. Sewing is the next goal.

Clutter and shopping cart that now carries oxygen tank

Paring down  is on the list too. As much as I gave away and sold, it just wasn’t quite enough. We are working on unusual storage solutions and I’ll show you what we’ve come up with next time.

How do you feel about sharing the ugly truths in life?

From my heart to yours,

Marlene Herself

    • Thanks for the kind encouragement, Pauleen. I am moving at turtle speed these day as high speed has gone out of my motor. I’m ready to do fun things again when I can find a clear spot to sit and do them. Thanks so much for the visit.

  3. When I emigrated and had to pare down to bare bones, I applied the 3x rule to books: have I read this 3 times? Will I read it 3 times more? If the answer was yes, it came with me, and travelled those 18,000kms. If no way, it was sold or gifted. If no, but… it was put aside to consider as a candidate. There are times I’ve regretted disposing of some of them, mostly reference books, but not many. You will get there. Ultimately, too, we can all apply the LITS rule (Life Is Too Short). If there are bags of craft supplies you haven’t touched after 6 months, LITS applies. Personally, I’m a great fan of track shelving as opposed to book cases. You can change the size and placement, unscrew it from the wall and take it with you. Hugs, and I wish I could come by and help.

    • You are right about how to pare down. I think that is why I decided to stay stateside. I pared down over a dozen or two boxes of books in preparation for the move. I sold what I could and donated the rest to various charity places. The same with fabric. It was always the question of “will I have enough life left to make this” Fabric left in tubs too. Nothing was sold, all donated to the various charity places. The amounts I’ve given away are staggering. I count my blessings to have had so much that I could share. Each time I’ve moved, I’ve downsized and I like having less to deal with. Now, I ask if what I’m getting is something my kids will want later and if not, will it be useful to someone else. I wish I could screw anything to the walls. We have to use those pull off hooks here to hang anything. Even my curtain rods are on pull off adhesive hooks. Rules! Wait till you see how we are managing lack of drawer space in the kitchen. I was supposed to leave the blinds as they were. I figure they can sue me when I leave here feet first. Those were nasty so my son cut fresh new blinds and we quietly replaced each one. These are washable. 🙂 I try to follow all the rules but sometimes I just have to follow good sense. Thanks for the kind offer of help and the visit. I miss being here and connecting. Getting close to functioning here. Hugs and stay well.

The man next door had an eye popping, jaw dropping expression when he walked by. Creative people tend to have more “stuff” than others and they don’t understand. I am being forced to take my time. Nothing goes quickly at this stage of life. My house is clean and getting happier every minute. Thanks for visiting. I’ve been thinking of you as I put your books on my shelves. Hugs.

  6. Just take your time. It takes forever to find the right place for everything. Nothing seems to look right anymore, plus the emotional energy required. I still have a removal box of records to unpack after nearly two years, and well you know I have other things to dispose. I try to do a bit each day. Hugs, xx

I’ve spent so time and energy getting acquainted with new people here as well. Those boxes of records are not vital to your living so they can stay packed until you actually need them. I know you are fully aware of this process more than many. I’ll be catching up soon. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for the visit. I needed the company. 🙂

  8. It’s good to hear how you are doing Marlene. It’s not easy living out of boxes. We had renovations going on recently, and are doing the same, but not the scale you have to cope with. Reducing a household is aways a trying experience complicated for those of us creative types who find that we gave away some widget that we need now for a current project.
    The worse part of reducing is the anxiety of thinking that you’ll never see the end of it. But you’ll gradually create order from the chaos; it’ll just be a different order than before. Part of that I’ve found is that you remember exactly where something is – in the old house or its old location. Very frustrating.

    Take your time.

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Lou. I used to have a license plate frame that said a creative mind is never tidy. I’m going into half the space I had and it’s the third time I’ve downsized my living space. I decided to go ahead and show the before photos. We will get the after hopefully by the end of April. I don’t envy anyone living with boxed belongings. My daughter works full time and is doing the same thing but without the help of her brother. I’m so lucky he’s handy and likes to make things work easier. I’m so grateful for the creative types. 😉 I’m sorry I haven’t stopped by lately but this is almost done so I’ll have time again soon.

I just have to keep my door closed until it no longer shocks the neighbors. I make great progress one day and the next I may have to rest. Trying to build up red blood cells to acclimate up here and it seems to be working. I think I’m done moving. Each time you have to decide what is no longer serving you. You know exactly what I mean. Now I’m going to get showered, dressed, put on my slippers and walk down the hall to have breakfast with a few of my neighbors. Eggs cooked to order just like any restaurant but in my slippers. 🙂 Wait till you see what we have come up with for a storage solution. 🙂

  12. I’m in the process of getting my possessions out of the place that has been temporary (if you can call being there 6 years temporary). At least you have help, I’ve had very little of that and with knees that don’t work well it’s been miserable. I only have a storage unit to take things too, no luck finding a house or financing for one, no apartments available that I can afford except in areas I don’t want to be and would be in danger living in. From the latest information the landlord has given I’ve got till June to find a place. It’s looking like the cat and I are going to be residing in my Tahoe for the summer since housing has not been found yet. I had originally been told I could stay for at least a year, but suddenly in the middle of March i was told to throw all my possessions out, get rid of the cat and just go into public housing – I told him “NO! ain’t gonna happen!!!”. I’ve been acting building manager for the last 2 years and have saved the landlord a good bit of money and worry. So he is just going to have to give a little as to my exit from here. It just is wretchedly maddening.
    I’m glad you had a place and it was a choice to do what you wanted with your things, I was hoping to do something similar but now don’t have the time. I will when I pull things out of storage even though that wasn’t how I wanted to work things out. The step-kids are all too far away and it has been difficult to have to ask people I don’t really know to assist me. It wasn’t like I didn’t have a plan, but the sudden shortening of time blew that right out of the water.
    I’ve had the cat for 6 months and if I’d known then what I do now I wouldn’t have kept him, however I’ve made a commitment and will honor it as best I can, I do have someone who can pet sit for a few weeks which will help.
    Sorry to be so long here. I know you’ll be okay given a little time and patience.

  16. Hi Marlene! It sounds like you are coming along just fine. You will eventually find places for everything and settle into a nice routine. It’s wonderful you have family to help you. (I would have changed the blinds, too.) Pace yourself and take care of yourself. It sounds like you are on the right track – no ugly truths about it.

    My move recently took place over two days in the rain while I had a wicked head cold. It was miserable. I was fortunate I could leave many things behind – my four bookcases with their books, a filing cabinet with loads of records, and even clothes I would no longer be wearing. I’m a bit of a minimalist here and have loads of empty floor space for pacing. I don’t know why I’m still pacing so much. Hopefully, I’ll find a way to turn this nervous energy into writing soon.

I lived that way most of my life and am enjoying all my toys now in my advanced years. Finally, I get to play though I have pared down immensely each time I moved. This is the smallest place yet but it’s working.
      I’m sorry you had to move when you weren’t feeling well. That makes everything so much more difficult. I understand the nervous energy. It plagued me for years. Now I wish I had some of it. 🙂 I might sit with that energy and have a chat with it. It’s telling you something.

  17. TENACITY is your middle name, Marlene. Say it over and over again, and you hear how beautiful the word is. Because of your tenacity, you will get through this challenge and eventually have a cozy home that you can relax in and get back to reading and writing and some of your hobbies. And YES, we should always write the ugly truth in our reality. No fiction or non-fiction is believable unless the ugly is combined with the beauty. Your beautiful soul shines through it all, though.

When we moved into our ‘last’ home in 2001 I said that’s it, I’m never moving again until they cart me out of here. I do realize as some of our aging friends have had to adjust that I may not be able to hold fast to this plan but for now….. fingers crossed! I have never mastered the ability to be a quick organizer and it is taken me many years to get to where I am- and still with much left to do!

  20. Hey hey Marlene-a-go-go. Things really do accumulate quickly, don’t they?. I dread the thought of having to downsize again. Good for you for chipping away at it though. I’m afraid my mojo is really stymied by chaos. I blame it on my childhood when nothing (repeat, ‘nothing’) was to be messy. It was drilled down to my DNA. I learned to make a perfect bed at a very young age and continue to be rather fastidious. It really slows me down when I have to stop and clean up in the middle of a project, LOL. Long story short, I wish I could just let go, ignore, work around unorganization. I think I’d get so much more done. Try not to overthink it, don’t be a ‘kelly’ is what I’m trying to say 😀 x💗K

    • At one time, actually most of it, I was like you, Kelley. Then I became too ill to manage my own expectations. Each year as my health becomes more questionable, I have to keep lowering my demands on myself. I can want to do something and the old body just laughs at me. So I work a little and rest a little now. Each day I look for a glimmer of progress and call it good. I grew up like you did in some fashion. Minimalist and excessively tidy and clean. I’m not normally such a clutter bug and I hate it. Clutter makes me CRAZY! So much is being tossed out or given away as it’s unpacked. Solutions have to be found for cramming a 1600 sq ft creative life into 700 sq. ft with no outside storage. Anything I bring is with the thought of where it goes when I no longer need it. I have 2 more boxes of my daughter’s stuff that got mixed up with mine so we are very systematic about the unpacking. I’m hoping in a few weeks, All will have found it’s home. Getting so close.

    • oh. The Ugly Truth – I forgot to answer. Yes, it’s one of the tools I’ve learned to use. If I’m embarrassed, or hesitant, or scared about something…then I figure it’s something I need to face. Publishing on my blog is a trick I’ve used to face things. Funny thing is, when I say it “out loud,” it loses its strength and things are not as bad as I felt they were. When I’m hurt, sad, in pain, I say that out loud too, and it loses power over me. So, you asked how we feel about sharing ugly truths. I feel that I should do it more often. I feel it’s hard to do. I feel good when I can talk about my ugly truths and not make it sound like I’m begging for sympathy, in the way you have succeeded in not sounding whiny. That’s my aim. To express that I don’t like the situation, and that I plan to change it, eventually, somehow.

  24. I think you are right about sharing the ‘ugly’ truths in life. In fact, they are often not truly ugly, just not the tv-image of perfection. I prefer order and organization, but have so rarely been able to have that. I completely identify with you trying to fit 40 lbs into a 10 lb space . . .

    It’s hard for me to understand what’s behind the sort of rules you have to deal with (and which I’m doing my best not to have to deal with); why would it be deemed better for you to have ugly, nicotine-stained blinds than nice fresh ones? Especially when you provided the new ones yourself . . . In another world, I’d love to have several friends like you and share a piece of property, with common areas and private living spaces. Studio space for those large things like weaving and spinning, with lock-up cupboards for individual tools. Ah, well . . .

    I agree with everyone else here about just taking your time, doing what’s possible, then resting as needed. You’ll get stronger and things will get done.

    I do hope you got some rest at your son’s place. At least cats aren’t too demanding . . . well, most of them aren’t! I know you are aiming to be done by the end of the month, but if not, I’m sure you’ll adapt to a new timeline.

    I’m thinking of you and wishing, like so many other friends, that I could just pop in and help out. At least then it would be fun . . .

    • Good to hear from you, Linne. You are on my mind almost daily as I want to send an email and forget if I did or not. I may be a week of the target date for all to be done but it is so close. They make these stupid rules because the complex was up for sale and the seller wanted everyone to keep the looks uniform. Some folks require more rules than others as they take more liberties with property than is reasonable. I’m ignoring a lot of silliness and going for reasonable. The new blinds and small nails to hold art are reasonable. They can sue me when I’m gone. I won’t care but I don’t think they really do either. The place sold last month to an out of state corporation. You can imagine how that’s going to go. I like your idea. It would take clear intention and a lot of planning with good people. But I’m not moving again. This is it and I’m cozy. Till later, Hugs and love, M

A new place lets you know how it wants to be used and as you listen to it, you figure it out. It all takes longer than we’d like. Keep enjoying your life. That’s the important part.
