You know why? No? Because I FINALLY went to work and got all the shredding done. We are talking months worth and the situation was exacerbated by the fact that there were 400 mis-printed personal checks that also needed to be shredded. I emptied that can three times. BIG ol' bag of shreds out there in the trash. But I procrastinated so long. Each time I saw that horrid pile of papers etc I groaned inside and pledged to do it. Well, I finally did!!
Last week I tackled the linen closet in two stages. I have a long table that I set up and I put all the sheets etc on one end and all the towels and hand towels, wash cloths, dish towels and hand towels all on the other end. I culled out the old and pilled and picked ones and put them in a leaf and lawn bag for the animals at the shelter along with two cotton blankets that came with my son each time he was unloaded from the ambulance several years ago. They need blankets too. The personnel can cut them to their preferred size.
I sure have more room in the closet now. That is essentially what drove me to cleaning it out...that and the animals needed it. I got rid of some sheet sets that were ew-glee too. Especially twin sets. The shelter does not want those. I pitched 'em. I bought the dogs and cats each a case of Purina One foods and last week I took kitten food and milk and some nursing bottles in.
Closet cleaned up..shredding down, bathroom cleaned again, all the vacuuming done..hey, the girl's got game.
Thank you for putting up with my three a year celebrations of my grown up men sons. I am that proud of having them. And Mother's Day and Father's day are equally family (of course) oriented. Fair warning. That's six times a year I get all mushy.
Okey doke. Done. Just wanted to brag about the shredding. Yes, yes, I know..keep up with it.
