Purge Complete!

Whew! Does that ever feel a lot better! Dean, Tyler and I worked our tails of Saturday, and FILLED the huge dumpster! We emptied the shed, storage room, closets, and any other nooks and crannies that have collected JUNK for the past six years! It feels so good to get rid of the stuff.

This afternoon we'll put the storage room back together (moving stuff back in that we're keeping) and tie up some loose ends around the house and call it done.

What's next? Finish painting the exterior of the house, then we'll get started on Ianna's room. Big changes in our house house to match the changes in our family. It feels AWESOME!


  1. ps have you looked at 147million orphans stuff yet?
    Let me know if you want anything I am doing a fundraiser for our girls with it.

  2. why did you dumpster it all? coudlnt yuou give to goodwill or some thrift store to repurpose it?

  3. The vast majority of the stuff we pitched was no longer use able. There are a few things I'm donating, but really most of it was just plain not usable either due to mouse damage, moisture...or being from the 1980's! LOL Last year our refrigerator, which sits just above the storage room, had a leaking ice maker. It had leaked for quite some time before we knew about it (probably a week or more?) so everything was trashed!
