Today was an intense spring cleaning day, as we hit the basement to pull out unwanted stuff.  We went through Our Son's room, getting rid of some stuff and packing stuff he wants to sift through into a box. I'd packed up some stuff to donate to Goodwill, and some books to donate to our local library, and we wrestled them into the car and dropped them off.

The living room, kitchen and master bedroom are fast becoming "uncluttered" and it feels really good!

We've dismantled an old basketball hoop that has been in our driveway for the last ten years. That was a helluva good accomplishment!

We put some stuff up on our street with a sign that says "Free Stuff!" and much of it has already disappeared. We also filled our brown waste bin, and tossed some things in a dumpster our neighbors have allowed us to use. Our recycling bin is full up; so is our yard waste container.

We're still not organized enough to hire our own dumpster and hire some guys to help us throw stuff away, but we're getting there.

The downside? We are exhausted. We're reclining on couches sipping white wine and occasionally sighing, "Oh, man!" I've popped two ibuprofen to ease the aches in my poor knees and back.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to sleep well tonight.
