Clearing someone else's house

I've just spent most of the last seven hours clearing out stuff in my MILs house. I am exhausted, and we're not done. The packers come tomorrow. So whatever isn't done today, it will be too late.

I'm taking a short break while the kids watch their 3rd hour of television (well, they're just starting it, and dinner is in a few minutes).

Did I mention I was exhausted?

There is a lifetime accumulation in this house. We are moving her to a (rather large) apartment in Colorado - independent living, and all that, but there is so much stuff she'll never use and never remember (and it costs a lot to ship).

Tomorrow I may totally let T take care of the packing/loading supervision, and do something fun for myself. Or maybe I'll go in the pool with E. Or something.

  1. It makes me exhausted to read how much work you have to accomplish in the next week... or maybe it is the Texas heat?? I looked over your blog and I think the Paris house looks wonderful. What fun adventures to be had across the sea!
