More Recycling Done


Swedish Death Cleaning

I had never heard of this before, but it completely makes sense.  It's the decluttering version of creating an Estate Plan.

I am also a survivor of someone who didn't do this, and yes, I paid for it.  I have the pictures to prove it.




A few thoughts:

I got help in getting some of the big things out, namely the furniture that belonged to my sister and I.  For the rest of it, I took out of the house things that were indicative to my memories of Mom and Dad.  Papers.  A lot of papers that I will need to go through.  The rest, however, can be replaced.

I didn't get everything out, there wasn't enough time as the buyer wanted to close earlier than had been arranged, but it's okay.  I have pictures of the rooms with the furnishings that didn't make it.

Furthermore, I have the memories of spending time with my parents, which cannot be bought.

New LDS Church Video On Grieving

I didn't have time this week to watch all of it, but from the first 15 minutes of, it looks really good.  Well worth watching.  From The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


My New Life - Part 2

This morning I had my hair cut.  Not a trim, a cut.  Afterwards, a breakfast sandwich at Panera Bread.

Before:



After!




And breakfast!
