Yes, I have been preoccupied lately and not visiting many blogs right now. Not to worry, dear friends! We are on a cleanout campaign!
The garage has been our first target. You see, we were overconfident when we initially put the house on the market. We packed up a lot of possessions and put things in temporary storage. Time passed. We finally decided to bring everything back home last year and clear out the storage unit. We also held a couple of garage sales and have leftover items from those events, packed away in boxes. We’ve gradually have been unpacking boxes and sorting ever since.
Now that the weather temperatures are moderate again and my knee has healed sufficiently, we have resumed our ambitious cleanout project. All I can say is “UGH”. I sure wish some of you, my bloggy friends, lived nearby! I could load you up with all kinds of goodies and treasures! We consider ourselves pretty thrifty folks, but we are not immune to the disease of overabundance.
So please don’t fret about my temporary absence! I will pop in and visit with many of you when we get tired or throw in the towel, whichever comes first!
P.S. The follow-up visit with my orthopedic doctor went well yesterday. I am scheduled to return 6-7 months from now. The knee still pops now and then and residual pain and swelling remain. But the doctor says that all of that is normal and will continue for about a year. Mastering stairs continues to be my biggest challenge. Lately, I’m doing better walking down stairs, but not improving going up. There's more work to do on those quad muscles!
