Way too timely for us. We are dealing with our “stuff” this weekend. We put a bunch of stuff in a storage unit when we put the house up for sale back in the summer, to make the place look better. Then Husband’s mother passed away, and we got the task of dealing with a bunch of her stuff. We whittled her stuff down, and put what was left in our storage unit with our stuff. Then we decided to take the house off the market since nothing had happened for months. In the meantime, my mom gave us a few pieces of her stuff. So this weekend, we are trying to decide which stuff to keep, which to get rid of, what gets dealt with first — do we hang the two great 60s era mirrors from my mom, or do they get stuck behind the couch while we deal with some of the other stuff in the storage unit — thus turning the mirrors into simply more stuff to be dealt with at some other time? Or do we hang the mirrors, and then deal with the other stuff? The plan right now is to hang the mirrors first, but, that involves going to the store to get more stuff to hang the mirrors with. And when we go to the store, you know what that means — we probably will come home with some other stuff too!
