I'm Getting Organized

The tack store is closed. The inventory has been moved home, and is somewhat organized. The barn office is almost totally organized. And that is a great feeling. 2 weeks ago, on March 31st, I didn't think I would ever see an end, let alone a beginning, to being organized, with both the tack and the barn a mess.

The first week after closing the store, I painted the barn office and the room that I would store the inventory. I touched up paint in the house. I cleaned up the house.

The second week, I unpacked the horse trailer, that had housed some of the product from the store. I set up my office, carrying more boxes from the house. The magazines and books are displayed on shelves.

I've taken some folders to the barn office that will make me go to the barn to get work done. I'm glad there is a room heater for winter time. For now, there is a ceiling fan, which is fine for spring weather. But hubby says he will install a window air conditioner for summer 100 degree days. I sure hope so!

More and more boxes are going to the barn office. 3 weeks ago, it was a storage room for tables and shelves. Today, it is painted and looks like an office. I have empty shelves, which is a nice feeling.

Now, I can start scheduling some lessons.

I also have to get back to riding. It's about time. I need to give myself a quick kick in the rear. Get moving!

But parents will be here tomorrow for 2 weeks, and instead of riding this week, I have gone double time on getting the house and barn ready. At least now a person can sit in the living room and dining room. I can actually put pictures on the walls.

Even though I said this week I would start riding, maybe next week???

For right now, I need customers come set in these chairs!
