I went to Hoarder Haven! And Kicked butt!
The day before yesterday after doing the fun stuff, like biking. I decided to go down the basement and deal with hoarder Heaven. In the course I got into the spring cleaning thing.
I washed wall, removed the ceiling tiles and vacuumed the spider webs and sorted the mass of just stick it down stairs boxes. I put the stuff in different sections of the hoarder haven room, and stuck a computer printed sign on the wall above each pile. Keep, Sell, Undecided, Trash.
I filled 8 contractor garbage bags of stuff we have been storing down there for years and should have pitched along time ago. One batch of Paid bill receipts was dated 2005. OH MY! I spent 8 Hours nonstop cleaning and sorting. I have really neglected that area because of my excess weight and the pain I had going up and down the stairs.
Yesterday, I spent the entire day on the conch drifting in and out of sleep because I over did it and wore my A$$ out.
But Last June I couldn't even make it down the steps to do a load of laundry.
Well, the Hoarders have filled the family room in the basement (the one I just finished), the laundry room, the office, a storage/spare bedroom, a storage shed, and a two car garage. There is no reason to how they stuff crap in those places. I have not been able to police those areas for a long time. I will have my work cut out for me. And they are not going to like it when they can't find their stuff. Maybe this is why marriages fail after WLS.
Today, I will button up some loose ends that I need to finish up in the setting room, and then, move on the and do the same to the laundry room.
