I am not a "pack rat" but I would have a hard time convincing someone of that, if they should come by my house any time soon. I have been digging out closets & draws and everywhere else you might choose to put things. I have bagged up clothes that I have been holding onto (for when I lose weight). I have made up my mind that I will NEVER get back into a size 10. And if I do, I deserve to get a new wardrobe. Now, I think I have 3 things left in my closet. (just kidding). I have dragged stuff off my walls that I'm so sick of looking at but just never bothered to haul them down and pitch them out. Would you believe that among all these treasures are two big suit cases that an old lady friend asked us to keep for her. (she thought her niece was going to steal them). LOL Dh said he would keep them for her. Well, she landed in an assisted living facility. She died, two years ago at the age of 104. But her suit cases are still here.(This was one trip she didn't need them). They are going to GoodWill with the rest of the stuff. (or should I call her neice). lol
The real challenge is when I hit the sewing room and kitchen cupboards. OMG, where do I start. I'm having a meeting of the guild here tonight so I'm going to pick over some things I don't want and offer them to the girls. If they don't want it, Off to GW it will go.
Well I guess I had better get back to work, Lots to do. Now I know why I have stayed here for 46 years. I have dreaded moving.
