Okay, I'm goin' in

I've drunk two pots of coffee. I've been to the hardware store and to my sister's tool room and my basement. I have now assembled one great piece of podfic :D, several quarts of leftover interior and exterior house paint, most of a gallon of Kilz primer, a box of TSP, rubber gloves, a bucket, a scrub brush, a mop, a respirator, fresh filters for the respirator, concrete paint (tinted black), a cheap light fixture, brushes, rollers, rags and crappy paint-stained clothes.

I can't procrastinate any longer. Well, I can--it's what I'm doing right this minute--but I'm not gonna.

Wish me luck. I'm goin' in.

If we don't hear from you by midnight, we'll send help. And cookies.

I made it through the scrubbing phase! Respirator is now retired.

Put some cotton balls soaked in vanilla extract in the paint so it won't smell so awful!

PS--In the last few days, I have given away a couple of cartons of vintage fashion magazines, one very large overmantel mirror, a teak chaise longue for the garden, some small bookcases, a dozen picture frames, and much else, and am speeding up the process of recycling the research files from long-ago book projects.

Wow! Go you!

No wonder it's been quiet in executrix-land.

It's surprising how difficult it is to get people who actually want stuff to actually TAKE IT AWAY.

I know just what you mean. On the other hand (at least in the neighborhood I live in), if you can get people to feel like they're stealing it, it's gone in half a day.

I leave stuff out on the curb. No free sign, nothing. It disappears.

Ah, yes. The Versailles Potato Strategy. I notice that at Book Sale we can encourage removal of items by literally throwing them on the floor behind the sorting table if we think they don't even rate placement on the Free Table.
