Forced to Clean
Junk can be interesting and curious, but I don't like it filling up the garage. But at least our self quarantine time, has forced us to face the chores that we love to ignore.
Today we worked in the garage. We haven't parked a car in this garage since we moved here 20+ years ago. So it's a mess and today we made some good decisions. We found lots to get rid of. But what do we do with it? Our city's recycling and bulky trash pick ups, have been put on hold indefinitely.
But we did make some progress. We've been storing lots of stuff that belonged to parents... and we unearthed some surprises.
We found a book with 55 patents, that Don's dad is responsible for! I had no idea!
And we found a framed Calder, that I for some reason didn't remember we had! It was in my family's house, years ago. We found no spiders or mice. Yay!
So being trapped at home can lead to some fun discoveries!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
