Security: Public
Tags:friends, personal, photos
Well, Team E— and [info]mlerules really came through above and beyond the call of duty this past weekend. All day Saturday and most of Sunday they cleaned, cleared, lifted, shifted and pushed me where I needed to be pushed. We took a full car load to the recycling drop point, a full load to Goodwill, and some stuff to Scrap. We set aside substantial goodies for JayCon door prizes. Also, magazines to Cameron's Books, and books to Powell's, as well as a whole stack of boxes to ship to archive.

There's still an enormous amount of work to be done in the basement, and some upstairs, but now it's down to a normal scale of effort, rather than the highly dysfunctional state the basement has been in. Plus my forthcoming JayCon house guests will be a lot more comfortable.

My profound thanks to Team E— and [info]mlerules.

Congrats! Purging is hard but ultimately it's so satisfying. Sort of like pizza saved for marriage! ;-)

Congratulations to everyone. That was quite the project. I had no idea there was another toilet in there somewhere! :-) I have done the same thing on a much slower basis. It feels great to shuck off all that old stuff. Reminds me of the scene in Labyrinth where the old woman burdens our heroine with all the things from her childhood... piling them on her back until she'd be bent over with the weight of it all like the old woman. And then our plucky girl throws it all off, crying, "You have no power over me!" :-)
