I have not been on here for awhile...but I wanted to share something with you all. I have had my father in NH for almost 3 years. I have been dreading/ procrastinating the house cleanout, but the time had come! 5 people 17 long days 50 yards worth of dumpsters, and 8 days of garage sales......80+ years of accumulation.....every calendar, every scrap of clothing, everything imaginable...nothing was thrown away.
I just want to say I feel for you all that are going through the same thing...children of the depression where just plain and simple hoarders! Mine were organized hoarders, who never offered to share things with family....seems kind of sad that some of these things were not offered up or put to good use instead of pack ratted away.
In hindsight, I wish I had not put it off, and just tackled one room at a time....but I am so glad it is almost done!
