Purge 2012: Day 5

My dresser now



What you don't see is the basket and box with all the items that need repair. I'm going to tackle some of those tonight as its handwork. The box contains items I need to sit down at the sewing machine to repair. I also got through those little drawers on top. LOTS of stuff, stuffed in there. I even went through the items within the drawers. I eventually had a nice sized pile of broken gold jewelry. I'll take that to the mall next time I go and sell it. I didn't manage to move the dresser to get all the dirt and crap underneath. I'm too tired and out of spoons. The only thing I have left in that room is the upper shelf in my closet. I need Joe's help for all of that, so I MAY get to it this weekend...then again. I may not. Busy weekend ahead.

The basket to the right of the dresser is a pile of wool sweaters that: 1 need washing (so I need to get a sweater dryer) and 2 need a home. My sweater drawers are full.

I don't feel like I got as much done today as I have the previous days. But I think that's due to the fact that I'm actually having to find homes for things. When I started, I could just throw things in the general area where they belong. I'm running out of that generic space and have to find homes for things. I am not looking forward to the spare room. There's an incredible amount of stuff in there. It ended up being a dumping ground. And I have to have it cleaned up by the 1st.

Elli and Gwen get back late Monday Night. I've made arrangements for them and Gray to attend camp at school starting tuesday. I can distract one child from what Ike is doing. I can't distract 3. This also gives me a week to either purge more...or rest.
