Too Much Stuff

Friends have heard me talk about The Midden where everything hides. Well, the truth is that this house was a warren of middens. With the possibility of Viv coming home soon with a walker, it was desperation time. Fortunately a wonderful friend from Vermont came down for a long weekend to lend her energy and muscle to the project, and so far we've done about 2/3 of the necessary work. This is not all the work that needs to be done but it will be enough to create walkable space. About 40 large garbage bags of STUFF have gone out so far...and I can see floor all over in the bedroom and partway down the hall (the other part is what we'll work on tomorrow before she has to leave.) Here's to good friends and lots of heavy-duty garbage bags! Best find - little earrings like books; square glass beads; 1978 passport..

Wow, Alison- that's great progress! I can't wait to see the earrings you found. So glad you have some 'found treasure' as rewards for your Battle against The Midden (although Viv coming home will be the best reward!).
