Cleaning up

Well, I don' t have a picture of it, but my garage is clean!

I am preparing for that garage sale, and step one was clean up the garage. Oy.

I have reduced three bins of sports equipment down to one, gone through the tools and organized the supplies. I hosed down all the bikes and lawn equipment. Actually, pretty much everything got hosed down and laid out in the sun to dry.

I swept, and swept, and swept. And really, there is still more dust, but I began to feel like Pigpen, so I called it good enough.

Now, I will go through the house, one room and closet at a time and try to get rid of at least 1/4 of what's there. We have too many piles and stuff we never touch. I will de-sensitize my tendency toward nostalgia and just get rid of it.

Let the purge begin. It's time to make some cash!

Come to my house next! You'd never get through the garage. And to think we could once put our vehicle away! It actually spent a whole winter out doors. ARGH! If only I didn't have someone peerng over my shoulder saying, "hey, you can't get rid of that!"

Cash can buy you a new lot of sentiment! More cash! More sentiment!
;-) See? It's cyclical.
