Well okay, not all the way done. Still gotta find a spot for all those pillows and put the quilted bedspread back on. Scott's going to tackle the closet one of these days and the pillows will go in there afterward. I had been meaning to reorganize the closet for some time, and his work in there forced it. Kinda. It took three weekends of best intentions, once he put everything on the bed. It wasn't that pressing.
I got rid of and put away a lot of shit.
Wrapping paper and old Christmas cards and an entire plastic grocery bag full of bubble wrap.
A fax machine and a sprout-maker and ... on it goes.
Some things we never use and likely never will: out they go.
The garbage and recycling and giveaways are in the porch, awaiting transfer to the car. There'a a bag of Emil's things to be taken to his place. Ducky figures it's a good place to park himself.
The wrapping paper that I chose to keep and the Xmas cards to make tags with and the potential gifts are now stored in the old cardboard trunk till next year. They lay flat atop the Christmas decorations, the tree skirt, the strings of lights, the stuffed elf, and so on.
One job down, 364 to go.
