Our hands-on organizing work has commenced! Unfortunately I was still recovering from a cold, so we only did about an hour of work. Not much, but it’s something. J sorted and purged one of his childhood boxes, while I cleaned out an area that had collected beach gear, sports equipment, and old paint cans.
One key learning was the childhood boxes are filled with completely random items – the box he went through had elementary school yearbooks, old stock certificates (it would be great if they were worth something!), pictures, and a small bottle of whiskey.
So while we didn’t make a ton of progress, we did get started. I’m feeling better now, so hopefully we can get more done next week. Small steps…small steps 🙂
