So this is a totally OT post.

We have had this sheet music business since 1999 and around 2006 or 2007 with the economy it started tanking. Most of the employees were our friends and we really didn't want to kill their jobs so we just kept limping along but after years of losing money constantly (a lot), we closed up shop last August. It's been a long time packing things up but today we did the major stuff.

Here is what the office looked like about a year ago.









It was a two bedroom apartment where the office was located. That area was the living room/dining room where the majority of business happened and some product was stored. This was the original main stock room.







This was mine and Fran's office (owners)





Darcy and I have been boxing up the music since September. Not every day and sometimes only an hour, sometimes, 5 or 6 hours, but steadily since then we have been working. It came out to over 400 boxes of music. Today our contractor loaned us his guys (of course at a fee). We fed them pizza for lunch and second lunch, but here are the boxes now.





And here are the bookcases. I hope no one decides to liberate them from our carport tonight! Tomorrow Fran, Darcy and I get to move them all to storage or somewhere else. Note that they go three across in EVERY row there.



Tonight we are ordering Thai/Japanese for dinner after I go return the Uhaul. Fran is taking Darcy home right now so I have the time to DIS. I WILL be using my meager little bathtub, which in no way resembles a Disney tub. And there is still a lot more stuff up in the "office". Oh yeah, did I mention that these poor guys had to take all this stuff down a flight of stairs?

I am pooped and plan to enjoy some wine this evening and relax in my tub before passing out from sheer exhaustion and pain. I didn't move or carry a lot, but enough that I hurt. Time to go take some more ibuprofen. Anything stronger than that and I will be falling asleep tomorrow!

Spoiled. We wanted delivery and the only thing we have access to is pizza so pizza it was. I do enjoy a little Dominos thin crust with double onions though. Enjoy!

At this point once the bookcases are put away we are just going to need to sell off this music over the next 10-20 years, but thanks!

That is one nice thing about living in So Cal. We can have almost whatever we want delivered. There is a new service here called eat24, they have a website, Andriod apps, and you can order from a number of restaurants even if they don't offer delivery. If you order from them, then they send you another coupon for something off their service. I love my sushi, tempura shrimp, fried rice, wontons, and Pad Sie Ew noodles!

Wow what a day! Look at all those bookcases.

Hope you are still enjoying your wine.

BTW, we're really starting to get into Malbec's and we picked up a bottle of Manos Negras Malbec Select and boy is it smooth I also so the Fra Niente Chardonnay that you suggested but DH hates spending money on white wine I need to try it someday.

I get to go back in two weeks and get some more when we meet Jenny out there for her birthday!
The caramel marshmallow treats are very nice to look at and eat (even though I never have one). I remember the ones during the Holiday season where they decorated them as snowmen. The one store you are talking about at BVS is Trolley Treats. Maybe the DLR will bring back your favorite treats one day at the stores.

That is nice to hear that you will be back at the DLR in two weeks. I can't wait till we get to August for the D23 Expo.

Congrats.
