Tiny Living and Purging

I have been saying for a long time I want to build a tiny house and I am getting my introduction to living in a tiny space. I have been known to complain about living in 500 sq feet but now with moving to right around 220 sf ft I am realize how much stuff I had crammed into 500 sq ft!!

I loaded up my car and took a load of stuff to my mom’s for a garage sale we are going to have next month and my friend and step brother were there for my birthday dinner and I loaded up their jeep with stuff she is going to store in her crawl space.  I thought I had taken every thing I wasn’t going to need on the boat and walked through the door at 10 pm, looked down and there is a box I forgot and then I looked under the bed and found a whole bunch more stuff that I wanted to store at her place. How many Christmas decorations do I need? really!!! I sorted through them and threw a lot away but I still have 3 rubber maid containers of Christmas decorations not including the dicken’s village. Where I am going to set up a Dicken’s Village I don’t know, and I think the boat will be a little crowded if I display all 33 of my NutCrackers but I could not bring myself to part with them so in the crawl space they go.

I am trying to auction off my furniture on Bidding wars and had some interest so hopefully they will be gone by the end of tomorrow.

Thank God I didn’t go to Oliver because I would never have made it in time.

I am posting a few pictures of the boat. I made the bed and put a few things in there the other day. But lots to fit in there yet.

Well, back to packing! At least the sun is shining!

The back bedroom where I will sleep. I made the bed right away so it would feel like home to Stella.

On Suite bathroom with toilet, shower and sink. I think I am going to make the shower into a closet seeing as I have the main big bathroom (I used the term "big" loosely) and it has a bigger shower. I can still use the toilet and sink in the onsuite

    TWO berths? That is high luxury for boat living! Any pics of the outside and stats on size? Depending on wall construction, you can consider building shelves for your Holiday stuff…

    Live on a 35 ft sailboat with my narcissist ex boyfriend for 2 years. Looks like you have a lot more room than I did, Carrie. You don’t need much room though, and you can swap out your seasonal clothes.

    I am a narcissist, it is a sickness, I recognize when I am doing things that show the bad sides of my condition and try to limit it when I can. I do require attention that others find optional in a relationship and have become unable to function when someone I love ended our relationship and decided to do so without talking but by text….and no reason….then silence….it started as a break to allow my love to focus on her kids and not me. I actually was ok with her doing that….fully expecting we would be back together in no time….well months later my condition has me actually hiring someone to find the truth as it is. I fear the truth isn’t as I was led to think…with that said telling a narcissist a lie covering up a new relationship would lead to an outburst that could jeopardize the future quality of life overall……for all involved…exposing lies is never fun….a narcissist reaction is not predictable maybe not imaginable….on the other hand good news is …. if there is no lie to expose, anarcissist has only one reaction, being humbled….I hope I am humbled when I meet with the pi on Thursday ….I don’t really think the news is good, mainly because now my pi refuses to tell me anything until we meet in person….
