The great Pony Room reorg, volume 8

 (Note: a proper con update is coming next week.)

I'm finding the Pony Room to be rather frustrating lately.  More than a year after the move and it's still nowhere near "finished."  I say "finished" because a project like this never really is finished, there's always something changing, moving, flowing.  But somewhere you get to a point where the furniture is in place, the ponies have a home, and you can actually walk from one side of the room to the other.

None of these things is yet in place in the Pony Room.

There is a problem of finding the time, money, and inclination to go to the Giant Cheap Furniture Store up the road to get the last large bookshelf (with glass doors) to house the rest of the collection.  There is the problem of the wall shelves that absorbed humidity and won't go flush on the wall until they dry out.  There is just the problem of finding the time to get down there and tidy, organize, and sort everything.

While most of the major work is now done, it's the little jobs, such as organizing saved backcards and sorting sales/trades items, that are still waiting their turn.  Normally, I'm right onto these types of jobs, but when you've got an entire room filled to overflowing with these little jobs it gets hard to know where to start.  But Roomy's and my annual holiday party is coming up soon, so things need to be cleared up!  With the annual party comes my annual Pony Holiday display, and the room's got to be cleaned up before setup can begin.

We'll see how it goes...
