Lent 2017 – Day XIII – The Weekend that Was.
This past weekend I spent packing and purging. I have a second bedroom that has become a “catch-all” for when I need to tidy up or just don’t want to deal with it – goes in the bedroom. I popped open the door and started clearing out the room like an episode of “Hoarders” this weekend. Stuff that needed to be tossed out to the garbage, stuff that I could donate off to Goodwill, and stuff that needed to be packed away in boxes. I found a few extra appliances that I had forgotten I have (sorry Hon for the extra Blenders and Slow Cookers) and a joke was made that I may in fact be hiding the Ark of the Covenant. (I doubt it – but it is possible).
The area by my front door is stacked with bags for trash this week and boxes/broken appliances/things that I never got to. I forgot I had a wok.
It feels good to be able to pack all this stuff away and get ready for the move. I’m looking forward to starting something fresh.
It’s Monday morning as I write this and they are predicting 2-4″ of snow overnight and delays in the morning due to the cold temperatures and flurries. It’s 30 with a high of 29 (I know) and I’m just chilled enough by the front door to have it bother me. I’ve already heard reports of people rushing the stores for milk, butter, eggs, bread, and bananas. I always thought it an odd combination of goods needed for snowed-in conditions. Note to self – if/when (because we all know its going to be a WHEN) the zombie apocalypse hits, shore up the local Kroger and make a killing off of those items.
The snow continues to fall at lunchtime, but not much is sticking because the ground is so warm. Should make for interesting driving conditions in the morning.
When I get home tonight – back to the warehouse. Goal is to get a few more bags of trash/donations out and start taking down the DVD shelving. I also need to get rid of the broken mini fridge in the garage. It lost all its coolant and just needs to be trashed. Maybe I can utilize the dumpster at work… =/ I also need to take down the bunk beds. That’s going to free up a lot of room.
