MLW and I have been married for 11 years. Both of us had been married before, and, consequently brought a bunch of stuff with us when we decided that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. A bunch of stuff is really an understatement.
I moved from a 2 bedroom condo, and MLW moved from a 3 bedroom house into our small 2 bedroom home. Our basement is full of stuff. And until recently, our carport was full of stuff. Most of the items we have have not seen the light of day for several years. Most of the eleven years of our marriage, if you want to really be truthful about it.
Last year MLW and The Princess went ot Maui with The Princess' Paternal Grandmother and her family. I didn't go, because I am not the Paternal part of that family. I got to stay home and work. No biggie. I really wanted to get some work done around the house. Specifically getting rid of some of the junk that we have piled around in the basement. I wanted to put a dumpster in the driveway and just fill it up. MLW was not to keen on that idea. Then I got the idea to start looking on line for Hauling, or Junk Removal, and even Junk Hauling. And there are a lot of them. So I got a little discouraged.
I ended up just doing it myself. Which was exhausting. And incomplete, because it would have been a lot easier on me to just be able to point at a pile of stuff and say "That is what is going, have fun." Which is what I am going to do next time, because I still have a ton of stuff that needs to get out of this house.
