Been a busy couple of days!
Re ‘the purge’, I had waaaay to many ‘dress shirts’ for a retired lady. To begin with, I carry two sizes (small and medium), and mostly 2 sleeve lengths in each (3/4 and long sleeved, with a handful of short sleeved thrown in, but the office was always too cold to wear those.) I mean, WAY TOO MANY. Now that I’m fully retired, and planning to move in probably six months, maybe a little less, now was as good a time as any to PURGE. (volume 3, because a few years ago I read “The Art of Decluttering’ and went through 2 days of massive home purging of no longer needed/wanted/necessary stuff.) So I went into the project figuring I’d allow myself to keep 5 of each length sleeve, in each size. Or, a total of 10 in each size. (I wasn’t touching my graphic tee shirts. I’m going to be living in those.) For going out, ‘date night’, etc.
It was a LOT of work! I had two big black plastic trash bags to donate when I was done (and about 40 hangers too, and that was after keeping the best colored ones.) I admit there were a few more I couldn’t part with than the original plan, but I don’t think I have more than 12-13 in each size now. I can always cull down a little further at moving time. 🙂
That was on Friday morning.
Yesterday, we had our contractor over to go over the final plans for his project upstairs here. He is re-flooring the hallway, master bedroom, tiling the two bathrooms upstairs, replacing the vanities, toilets, and fans in both bathrooms upstairs, and paint all those rooms. (hubby just finished re-flooring the two spare bedrooms and painting the one that needed new paint.) As well as paint the hallway (stairs). Between now and when he starts, in about 2 weeks, I get to go out and pick the paints, the vanities, the new bathroom mirrors, and the new medicine cabinets.
All this to get the place ready to sell. Since we had the kitchen flood about 3 years ago, when we hired this contractor to re-do everything (at the insurance company’s expense)…he doesn’t need to do anything down there.
Then we went and saw our middle grandson’s soccer game.
Busy couple of days!
and we had a glorious sunset last night, too. Hope your weekend is going well!
