This morning I got up and decided TODAY IS DECLARED DUMP DAY. So I headed out to the garage, got all the recyclable plastic, gathered up the glass containers, loaded up the paper to be recycled, then threw in that old extra vacuum that has been taking up space. Loaded the whole mess into the car. Went back inside, and got that huge pile of clothes and household good I no longer have any need for, and added that to the load.
First stop, the dump. There I sorted all the plastic and aluminum into the right bin, went on to separate the glass items into their proper storing place. Picked up the giant size paper to be thrown away and got it all dumped into the waste paper container. Got all the cardboard flattened and dropped off with the other cardboard area.
Second stop: Good Will. Gave them that old vacuum cleaner.
Third stop: The Serenity Thrift Store for our area. Gave them the clothes and kitchen stuff.
WOW. Felt great to see my car once again empty, and even better when I got home and saw the cleaner garage and house.
Some days are just plain dump days. And not all bad, either!
