Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Yeah, I guess I'm bragging; I feel entitled to after all the sturm und drang of power tools and filth. I don't dare complain; we're too close to completion and anything that doesn't actually hinder the next (last!) stage of the project will just have to wait.

Further to Acme's remarks about emptying rooms: Yes, traumatic as it is at our age, moving across the province and into a very different kind of house forced us to do just that. We de-cluttered significantly before the move, and when we got here we could see immediately what more to shed. I'm not sure that all the stuff we should shed will actually leave, but that's a work in progress.

Tony the carpenter is back, so the house is shaking and vibrating again. Today is primarily baseboards and window trim, getting ready for the arrival of the stone counter-tops tomorrow. The gas-fitter should be coming today, too, and the cabinetmaker's journeyman to install the range hood (maximum suckage!). Lots of work boots in and out; I hope the cats hunker down for the day.
