MOUNTAIN OF CRAP!
As I sit here, I am staring straight ahead, straight into the MOUTAIN OF CRAP! I bet your first thought is “Why did she allow herself to get so bad to have a mountain of crap?” and if this was your first thought you would be wrong.
Over 2 years ago my parents decided after 20+ years of marriage they would go their separate ways (Over 10+ years past when they should have). My mom packaged up everything she didn’t want and told my dad that was his stuff. So After a couple moves later he settled in at my house.
He told my husband to not stack the boxes because he was going to go through one a day till he got through it all. The boxes stayed scattered taking up lots of valuable space for over a year. Then I couldn’t take it anymore.
So I decided I would start going through it… There is no rhyme or reason to the way my mother packed those boxes. Each one has clothes, dishes, decorations and photos. I got overwhelmed and just walked away. Then once again I couldn’t take it anymore…
I told my husband to stack it up against one wall. I thought it would give me more room and that would make it better. No, it did not! Now as I work I see the mountain of crap! I tried to beg and plead for my father to go through the boxes and he told me nah you can do it. Really?
So now I have two choices, I can go through the stuff now or in the future! How am I supposed to know what to keep, get rid of, or throw away? I am not going to be able to look at the mountain much more, so I will be purchasing Rubbermaid containers and going through and organizing it.
Do you have someone in your family that has a bunch of crap they refuse to go through and you have to do it yourself?
