My place is the same since you were here in April. No new things added; a bit of new clothing, but nothing else. My cleaner has a much easier time getting around to clean what needs to be cleaned.
I wanted to tell you about a trip I took last week. The friend I stayed with has this wonderful house and also a bit of a hoarding problem. We had talked and talked about what a fantastic job you did and I said to her, hey while I'm out let's tackle your place! And so we did, although not as much as we wanted.
I said to her: "Put on your throw it away mind." And she did. So we just started with stuff (and more stuff) on the floor. And "lo and behold" what a hoot. Bags and bags for donating to this local group for the homeless. Bags and bags and more bags and bags of garbage. But you would have been sooooo proud. I did what you did; made piles and said throw or keep with the emphasis on throw. And throw (or donate) it was. She was excited.
What a teacher you are!
