Scanning, scanning, scanning

Spent a few hours scanning photos and getting ready for our downsize. If you're looking for a good, fast, small scanner; this is your guy. I am very impressed with it! It takes about 1 second on low, 2 seconds on medium, and 3 seconds on high resolution. I'm getting good results on medium.

Binge, Purge

Lord help me, I will never accumulate so much STUFF again! We got a good start last night sorting garbage and goodwill stuff. It was a bit daunting to begin with and surely will be again, but it is so good to start and have a clear direction.

It's Time....

Our tinyhouse is all but done! I suck at updating the blog, huh? I promise, I'll write a BIG blog post with lots of pictures as soon as I can.

Anyhow, big news is; we're pulling the trigger on this thing and selling our main house! We're scared and excited! Mostly it's only scary because we have 6 kids. Otherwise this deal would be a cakewalk. The plan is to sell the big house, pick up another travel trailer for temporary digs and start building the other tinyhouses for the kids. My biggest worry is having to winter in travel trailers. The kids are already apprehensive about the move and downsizing. Winter in a camp trailer, off grid could inspire a mutiny.... Regardless, it's time to move forward on this! I think once everybody actually settles into their respective tinyhouses, they're gonna love it. Either way, it's going to be a valuable experience!
