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

The cat placement unexpectedly came thru today. She goes tomorrow or as soon thereafter as I can catch her.

I see now why it seems like I'm not doing as much packing-wise as my body insists I did-- I'm counting only the packed bulk, and not the larger bulk I'm letting go of. Plus we're not letting the recycling, Goodwill, and parish thrift shop stuff linger and build up, so I don't see that, as we chip away at it. (Some furniture already went into the parish yard sale I missed, too.)

I'm also misdirecting myself-- setting the finished bags and boxes out of sight to keep our LR sane? So I don't see it when I take breaks, either. Uck! I'd rather depart for ice cream! It is great though to have a living room long enough to have 1/3 of it for a "moving department."

Poor Hardi, having to tote boxes down to me from upstrs, and then also, once sorted, out to trash/donation or front porch staging-- before and after a full day's work. Still, it's his stuff too, and I'm sure it beats doing it all simultaneously like most folks move!

(Poor Newbie, too-- she thinks were leaving TODAY and possibly not taking her along.)

Regardless, one small box of aquatics packed, and next steps for it included in labeling. One giant box of recycling for mankind. ;-)
