That Giant Sucking Sound

Hear that?  No. Quiet.  Listen.  Kind of behind the hum of the refrigerator and around the neighbor shoveling.  Hear it? 

That’s the sound of stuff—and stress - leaving the house.

Yesterday MsBoyink took the second Roadmaster Station Wagon load of purged stuff to donate to the second-hand store.  Included in the load - besides a fair amount of things “sold back” to us by my 11-yo daughter - was a 24” lateral file cabinet that used to hold old records.  We’re still shredding the sensitive documents it once held so the project isn’t completely done, but it’s been no small feat and a great relief to lower our file-storage capacity.

There are still many square feet of basement shelves to be gone through - but progress is progress!
