Today's progress

I made significant progress in the bedroom and bath yesterday, and have spent my time this afternoon building on the former, and throwing things out of the fridge and freezer (about four grocery sacks worth of freezer burn and dead condiments ... oh my freakin' God). If I have copious free time (ha ha) I will wash out the fridge shelves. But the trash can is getting pretty darn full and pickup day is Thursday. That's the bad news; the good news is that with a couple more day's effort, it will look somewhat reasonable for the class Elissa is having here Monday.

For those of you who have been in my house recently, the progress in the bedroom is that the pile of stuff on the window wall has been shrunk down to the pile of stuff in the corner. The cotton sheers are unfortunately revealed to be rather mildewed, so a trip back to BBB or to Cost Plus will be in order. I do have to say that the lined burgundy raw silk ones at BBB looked quite attractive.

For now I am going to eat lunch and decide what else to do in what order for the rest of the day.

Um, wow? I don't even know how to respond to four sacks of stuff tossed from the fridge.

That sounds like a lot of work. On the other hand, you get to keep it after the holiday, which is always a pleasant thing. If you run out of trash can room, I think the county sells what we call "trash indulgences" : tags you can put on a 32-gallon bag and add it to your normal trash allotment. Well, we have them in Alameda, and they're like $3.20, and totally worth it when you're purging heavily.

It may have been three, but it's still a helluva lot. I had done some substantial clearing-out on the bottom shelves, but not the top ones.

I am having a bit of Panic Moment when I open the fridge. It doesn't seem like mine, esp. on the top shelf which basically has milk and fizzy water. Fortunately the beans and the Big Sack of Potatoes on the bottom shelf fill it out ;).

I did scrub the two top shelves, though, so it looks nice.

The great thing about a lot of this straightening is that I do get to keep it.

Plus, I can put a couple of grocery bags' worth of crap in my trash can. Most of my detritus is kitty litter and large plastic jugs, which are crusheable.
