Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

The dispersal of furniture, etc. continues. One minute I love something so much I never want to let it go, and 5 minutes later I can't wait to say goodbye and bring this little house to our vision for us in it.

Friend Trish is gettin most of those hard-to-let-go pieces-- I've decided I'll ask her for photos of them in their new home, so I can remind myself that they've gone on into somenone else's story. Also departing this weekend is likely to be the weight rack and bench the sellers left in the gaage here; scrap iron prices here are pretty low right now, and I do not have the trailer here. I had thought Hardi would incorporate then into his garage gym, but he says no-- so more gardening equipt room for me, I'll take it! It's fun surprising people with these offers, abd it's good neighboring, plus easier than FreeCycle.

I registered myself today for home services in Ohio with the reputedly stellar local Area Agency on Aging. The thyroid brain fog rollercoaster has me taking a social wokerer friend's advice to et on their list now before it gets too full. Odd feeling, reporting my own need when, as a clergy spouse, I've usually been on the other end of getting someone else onto services. Six weeks till a care manager visits to discuss.

And I filed the paperwork today for Medicare. Who knew I'd BE here?!?!?
