HI Donna !! Somehow I missed reading your blog on Thurs. So sorry.
I feel for you having to go thru so much stuff at your MIL place. I have a friend who's one. She was in financial freak out mode cos she put a TON of "new" stuff onto her credit cards. SIGH such a waste of $$, but you well know unless they get a hoarding specialist to work with them,,,, the behavior will NOT improve.
I hope the estate sale goes well and that you all able to get out what you wanted to. My friend lives upstairs here (High rise AND she's 5 floors on top of me as is another friend who we've known since a late teen. The hoarder since the 7th grade. The later known one LOL not that much later it was right after HS. She's 6 floors above me. It's funny to the 3 of us. With 16 units on 8 floors what is the odds? AND then another we've known since our 30s who ALSO lives here and she's 2 floors above me !! HAHAHAHA we all get such fun with this. Its nice to have them around. We all help each other out and of course IF any of us were to ever get bored,,, we can visit each other !! NO loneliness for us !
Here's a hoping you guys will be able to get it all done. I HOPE she wasn't a messy hoarder, it's way nasty to even in a place such as. The friend is a messy one and it's very rare I go up.. 11 hours ago
