Mom's closet is done. It's hard when it's someone else's stuff. A huge box of things that were my dad's but definitely not things I would 'connect' with him but she can't let go of yet (10 years out). Socks...just stuff. But we did make room and the closet has 'air' so mission accomplished.

That's hard.

I have about an hour and a half at home before my son wants me to drive him to a friends. After that it might be so hot that I'll need to hang out at the lake.

What a hard task, but I'm so glad you could help her.

I hear the lake calling to you! You've worked so hard. How about some self-care?

Today the laundry room was finished...except for the floors. I am counting that as a huge success. Next room is the kitchen.

Today was groshries and recovery from a rather horrible trip home yesterday ( no one wants to plan to drive from Baltimore to Albany to Burlington leaving at 4pm getting in at 4 am) tomorrow will be about unpacking and cleaning.

I am trashing school for the week I hopes of making headway at home.
