I’ve missed you all so much!!! Thank you everyone for all of your kind words on the other thread and in a private message. It means a lot to me!!!
My Mother passed away on October 31, 2020 with both me and my brother by her side. She went peacefully. I still miss her so much!!
It took us 10 days to clean out her house. It took us 3 days to clean out just the kitchen!! We had people helping us. We had 2 HUGE dumpsters and 50 HUGE contracting garbage bags to clean out her house!!! But we did it all in 10 days.
The great news is we sold her house in 2 days!! We asked 185,000 for her house and we got 187,500 to be split between me and my brother!!! It was assessed for 185,000!! We put on a new roof and garage door. But the house still needs to be painted on the outside and on the inside needs painting. After cleaning out her mess, we discovered beautiful hardwood floors throughout the house that had been protected by all her stuff!!! We close on January 22nd. Everything went smoothly.
Thank you all so much for everything!!! I loved reading everything you wrote to me!!
The holidays were hard. Today being my 59th birthday and my first birthday without her is hard. But otherwise I am doing fine. It’s good to be back!! I have missed you all!!!!!!
I talked to a gentleman in line at the drug store the other day and he was 70 and both his parents just died a few months ago. They were well into their 90's. He said both of his parents were hoarders living in a 3,000 square foot house. He said just in his mother's closet there were literally 300 hangers!!! I said I feel your pain. We just went through it with my mother.
But I am so glad that all of the furniture was donated and I was able to help my friend's son.
I wish you a Happy Birthday & a much better 2021 to start this new chapter in your life (((hugs))).
She was so happy and excited!!!
Happy Birthday to you 🎵🎵

So glad you were born. The world is a better place with you in it, and so is AgingCare.
Some people private messaged me to say they didn’t see this thread.
Anyway, thank you all for everything!!
Yes, 2020 sucked. Glad it's over. Hope we can look forward to better times now... Lost my oldest kitty (with me over 21.5 years) and mom... We need to have everyone cooperate and kick that virus to the curb and beyond!
Happy Birthday! 🎂🎈🎉🎊🎁
It is so good to hear GOOD NEWS in trying times. Welcome back!!!!
I'm sorry about the loss of your mom, but glad she's at peace now, finally, after everything is said & done. I'm glad, too, that you were able to clean out the hoard & then sell the house so quickly. What a blessing & a great way to start the new year. We're all praying for a better 2021 for everyone, we deserve it.
Sending you a giant HUG and best wishes for a great birthday.
Happy 59th birthday even though it's your first birthday without your mom.
You and your brother have done so much and you should be proud of yourselves for all you've accomplished - especially the clearing out and selling of your mom's house. That is no easy task to be sure.
Welcome back and may you have a better 2021!
Happy New Year and peace and health going forward.
