My Dad moved to Independent Living just a few days ago and this was something he wanted to do for years but my late Mom refused the idea. I measured out on a floorplan what Dad could take and where it would go in his apartment... everything worked out well :) Dad likes his new "home".
My beef now is that today Dad said he wants to sell the house immediately. Noooooo, impossible because of all the "stuff" that was left behind in the house. I can hire an estate sale group to sell the items, or I could call Goodwill and say take it all. But I first need to get it ready, and get it clean. The house is terribly dusty thus everything has a coating of dust bunnies.
Good grief, the basement alone looks like Red Green's workshop [Canadian comedy show] and it took me over an hour just to clean off the top of Dad's workbench. I dread opening up the floor to ceiling cabinets.
And "no, Dad, I cannot donate the mattress"..... "sorry I just don't have room for a second dining room set and another bedroom set".... "nope, I have no need for a fertilizer spreader".... " sorry I just can't use a 900 baud speed IBM computer that takes floppy discs".
This is just so tiring.... anyone else have to go through this?
