Cleaning madness... ^^

So there's this guy from the printing company in the Tchech Republic that wants to come by tomorrow on an official visit. >.>

This touched off a half-day cleaning, clearing, moving and re-wiring-of-the-office spree.

Cleaned the hallway up on the first floor (where my office is). Took all the empty plastic crates that I use for my books and products when I go to fairs and cons up to the attic. Moved my daughter's stuff into her room and firmly closed the door. Cleaned out a box that had been sitting at the top of the stairs and was full of stuff left over from the move (two years ago... >.>). Vaccuumed the hell out of all the floors.

Finally put away all the books in the storage room, cleaned up the leavings from the last con preparations, stacked boxes that still had stuff in them in orderly fashion, vacuumed even the window-sill.

Cleaned the downstairs hallway, replaced burnt out light bulb, cleaned kitchen and dining room - because the dining room is where we'll meet, my office is *much* too small for two people to be in it.

Bought new phone for the office (my old one was *so* dead...), hooked it up, re-did all the electrical connections because I'd bought two big multi-plug connectors with electrical surge protectors. Tried to tame all the cables underneath my desk. Hopeless.

So now I can suddenly walk through my upstairs hallway without falling over various boxes and objects. ^^

Looks good. Now he can come. :)

What's the meeting for? O.O

Oh. This is our new printing company. We just started having our stuff printed with them this fall, so there are still lots of uncertainties and questions. Also, he's bringing the rest of the print-run with him, so I save on shipping costs. ^^

It's good to be able to discuss things like paper and quality and cover design and so on in person, rather than via phone and mail.

In the end, he didn't even have to come upstairs - we spent the whole meeting in the dining room - there's more room there. ^^

But getting things cleared away and cleaned always leave me with not only a feeling of accomplishment, but also make me want to go forward with current and new projects. It just motivates me a lot more... :)

Nothing like having 'company' over to motivate! ^o^

That is *so* true - I've already got two empty packing crates sitting out in the hallway again. Have to put those away right now, or they'll just attract more stuff to them... >.>
