Continue from yesterday...
I continued to race from space to space, each thing leading to another.
I opened the linen closet across from the newly organized storage closet
to add one small light bulb, the tiny one for the fixture over the kitchen stove.
There was ZERO room to put a tiny bulb. I moved kitchen chair, both desk chairs into the hall and started dragging stuff out.
This was the next day, I went to bed with closet exhaustion.
Three Hours Later I had this view
NOTE no photo of the Way It WAS
Both beds were covered in sheets, and more sheets. I called Bob and said LOOK AT THIS, he said
What is all that? I said Sheets that we have had for 32 years. This yellowed one is 37 years old.
He says Why am I looking at this?
I said, Do you think I need to keep sheets we have not used in 30 years?
He said NO get rid of them.
I said What if one of us gets sick and throws up during the night and we need extra sheets,
He said, You have two new sets, and we have a washer.
I said what if we are too sick to wash clothes?
The bulging closet bulges no more!
Sheets are tossed
Things are washed and refolded and the closet was EMPTY!
Actually for the first time in YEARS.
We have 2 good sets and 1 soo set.
I did not tell Bob, but I did keep 5 flat sheets, for you know,
Just In Case!
We might need to cover the furniture when we PAINT. he he he
I also kept 4 ancient rugs in case a hurricane comes and we need to stop up the sliding glass door.
you know, for JUST IN CASE!
I dragged Bob into the computer room, open a drawer and said
Remember This! I moved all the lightbulbs to this drawer.
They have been in the linen closet for 32 years, and I know when you go to get one you will say where are the light bulbs and if we both know, MAYBE one of us will remember where I moved them.
I said to him Guess how many little bulbs we have for the over the stove thingy?
SIX and they are good for a year. At our age, we may have a lifetime supply.
I said, we only have one lightbulb for a lamp.
He said when is the last time we turned on a lamp?
The answer is we can't remember.
WE are Good!
I am exhausted...
