3000 lbs to lose

yet you read it right,
I need to lose 3000 lbs!

Right now you are looking at my picture,
and start thinking:
"OK I can see she could lose some weight,
may be 30, but not 3000
so really it must be a typo!"

It is not a typo,
the house got fat!
The upcoming move is paid by my husband's company,
but up to a certain amount,
and apparently we are way pass that number,
so it is major cleaning time.

We started strong:
Brick master gave up 6 years worth of old Lego catalog (26 lbs!)
Miss C. gave her board books to the neighboors' little girl
(I could not move the box so it was heavy!)
I gave up my old magazine collections of
Threads, Stamping and other craft,
it was quite impressive.
Mon cheri gave a old desk he made out of oak,
and the dogs, well they do not have much,
so we are not counting on them!

It is a good beginning
but still a long way to go!
I am going to do the unthinkable:
not keep some of my older fabric!!
I know it is sad....
but I have "too much" and some of it is a little old,
and dare I say it, some I do not like anymore...
So I will bring a few bags to the school
and retirement homes in our area,
I am sure they will find people willing to work with them again!



Happy cleaning days!

Wow! That seems like a daunting task, but it looks like you're off to a good start.
