On Friday we were hit with a huge blizzard. After spending the week preparing, buying enough food, water, gas, candles, batteries, flashlights, and firewood to get us through, we all hunkered down on Friday afternoon to watch the storm come in. A few hours into the storm the governor announced a travel ban. Unless you were an essential public service employee, you were not allowed on the roads. If you drove you could face jail time and hefty fines. Not that I’d planned to go anywhere anyway, but the idea of not being allowed to go anywhere made me feel a little claustrophobic. I'd only been housebound for a few hours but already cabin fever was setting in.
I hate to assemble furniture but this was pretty easy and it came together relatively fast and it fit perfectly in the space I wanted it to go too. The planets were aligned!
By Sunday we were all dug out (we got 3ft! Shoveling that was NO FUN) and the travel ban had been lifted, so, desperate to get out of the house, I went to HomeDepot to pick up some pegboard and accessories to further organize my stuff.
I’m not done yet (I wish I’d taken a before picture because it would make the after look so much more dramatic) but I was actually able to get some sewing done and not once did I have to stop to search for some tool that I NEEDED but had misplaced for the 10,000th time!
