That darned buffer on this iPad. I must add that to my list of things to get checked out when I’m home because it’s so annoying. There is probably an app (blogger) for the iPad, but I hate the Apple Store. OK - that’s going on the list of things to check out when I’m home.
I took some videos of the old house yesterday. But as Glen agreed, you CANNOT appreciate the magnitude of this situation until you see it in person. And it’s so gross that I’m sure many people would never set foot in that place. But being the tough (god - I’m so much a city girl now) “farm” girl that I am, it was OK to go in. Oh - I should mention that we found a trunk of old clothes. Yep - stuff that could have been donated at one time, but not now. There were clothes in there of mine and other family members. Those little green gingham pants that were probably made by my grandmother or mother would have fit me when I was about three. Why were they kept? God only knows.
It’s best to just get the job done, and let everything else go because there is NO rationale for what we’re finding. It’s the result of a disease - a very sick mind. We don’t really talk about that part much with my Mom. At least she’s realizing now and that’s all I care about. I’m not going to ask her why she’s spent THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of dollars on stuff that was NEVER used.
OH GOD - just like a quilter. ACK - we’ve all got the disease.
It’s time to check in with you. I haven’t heard from a single person about what you’re doing. If you want, I can post those gross videos so you can see the HUGE mess. Send me an e-mail and let me know what you’re doing.
I’m dead serious, you NEED to pick a spot in your house and you NEED to get to work. Start some place easy. Why not the powder room in your house if you have one. What’s on the back of the toilet? What’s under the sink? Is that stuff new or old? Used or brand new? You don’t want it? Can it be used by someone else? I’m not of the mind frame to sell much of this kind of stuff, I’m donating or throwing. Please, please do your children a favour and start to go through this stuff. It’s a HUGE, overwhelming job and I’m totally blown away. I can’t wait to get home and tackle a couple of areas and make plans to get to the rest. It’s something that I keep putting off, but I’m going to tackle it full force when I get home.
On that note, I guess I had better get myself out of bed and get ready for the day. We’ve got ONE more day scheduled at the farm. Oh yippeee - I can hardly wait. I’m going home on Thursday and I can’t wait for that either!!!
Have a super day!!!!
