It's a fine day, and the cats were sleeping, so I tackled the Box Forest in the Utility Room. Maggie woke up, so had to be confined to quarters. Maya went out, and I stepped on her tail, which really pissed her off.

But I see floor now. Which I couldn't before. I should have taken before and after photos. It's still a mess, as I decided to take a break after hauling a lot of boxes down to the basement, so I might take a WIP photo or two. There are still styrofoam peanuts all over the place.

I also found all my collection of pre-printed Christmas boxes. With any luck I won't have them buried again by the time I need them.

I have been getting a lot of my stuff online and shipped to me this last year. Lush boxes, Amazon boxes, Land's End boxes, and Zappo's boxes. My Lenten resolution will be to try to be less of a Big Consumer like this.

I think pre-Big Tired the boxes coming in and going out were more even, as I had far fewer in and would use them to send care packages and stuff like that to people.
