By the end of 2012, we expect the house to be clean, downsized, inspected, and ready to sell. As you will remember, from all of that painting you did for your new house, it can seem to take forever.
We've been in the house for 22 years, and I still think of it as a new house. I have been amazed by how many repairs can become necessary in that amount of time. Time takes a toll. Yet, your bees might say, according to a funny poster I saw recently, "Time is honey." We must keep buzzing, to create something sweet. That DOES call for a celebration, right?
I've been doing a lot of that, SUSAN. I make the lists and take the stuff to Goodwill, and the DH gets online and enters the data for taxes. It does feel great to gain space where the unused items used to be.
I've been cleaning a bathroom all day. I still need to get in 4900 steps to reach my 10,000 daily goal. So, I'd better get with it.
Yesterday, I emptied 2 closets loaded with items that we had set aside to donate. I logged all of the info in the computer for taxes, photographed everything, loaded up the car and took it to the drop off center! It's a great feeling to finally have them gone and the closets empty!
Even if our efforts of attention seem for years to be producing no results, one day a light in the exact proportion to them will flood the soul. ~Simone Weal
We love to hear what our fellow team members are working on and thinking. A new thread is always a welcome event.
I'm trying to get as organized as Susan's man. And I will vouch for organization being a stress reliever. I am working on disposing of the excesses of my many hobbies. Our guest room has been one of the unhappy recipients of my "too much stuff". That's where I will be for several days. It had turned into a walk-in closet.
Good Morning Everyone. Hope you're all having a great Thursday. I've been busy this morning cleaning out our catch all spare bedroom. It's where all Bob's woodworking stuff goes when he's too lazy to take it back out to the work shop. It's our "garage" so to speak, to store our yard sale items as we get them. But it had gotten to the point where you couldn't walk inside the door and finding anything was impossible. So I cleaned it up and organized it so now "I" know where everything is. If Bob wants something out of there, if he tells me what he wants, I can go right to it. Otherwise he'll have to look a little.
Morning Everyone, I got out this morning and did my walk then did some yard work/ gardening. Our neighbor next door moved and our landlord bought the house so he said I could go over and get any of the potted plants she had left if I wanted them. I got the ones I could and one huge one he'll bring over for me as I can't manage it myself. He has my hubby building shutters for the house and that'll give us a little extra money. Bob is a master woodcrafter and the landlord has had him make things for him many, many times. The landlord provides all the wood and nails, screws, etc. Bob just builds them and he gets paid for the labor. So it works out for both of them. With Bob's heart condition, he can only work about 2 hours a day but it gives him something to look forward to each day, instead of sitting around watching TV all day. I doubt he'll be out more than 2 hours today. It's extremely humid outside. Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.
