It was a very productive day . . . but very tiring. I went through my closet and threw out about half of the clothes it contained, most going to Goodwill and a few to the rag bin. I then tackled the hall closet, which is meant to contain coats and outdoor gear but had morphed over the past few years into a 'catchall' container for anything and everything that hadn't found a home somewhere else. Two hours later, Goodwill was in for a couple more very big bags of clothing and stuff, and the closet was miraculously clean and organized. Meanwhile other members of the household were sorting through their own spaces, cleaning and tidying things.
We ended up taking a pickup-load of goods to storage in preparation for our move later this year, and another pickup-load of stuff to Goodwill. The passage is surprisingly clear and easy to navigate now that several boxes and other bits of clutter have been tidied up, and several closets are similarly pristine after years of over-stuffed neglect. My back is killing me, but it was worth it!
I've no energy left for an 'Around The Blogs' segment tonight. If I get up early in the morning I might put it up then, or I might leave it until next weekend. At any rate, there'll be more posts in the morning.
Sleep well, y'all.
