Outta sight, outta mind and you don't have to feel guilty about throwing them out.
There's no room under my bed, with all the drafts of novels. Plus, you gotta dust under there!

10 pairs of clogs put into plastic snap-shut containers and marked for fall/winter use. I guess I can stop buying clogs as I have enough to last me the rest of my life and 5 colors. Another stroller, the Hello Kitty color TV with remote and manual and the smaller Pak nPlay all taken to the Jr League Consignment Store.
Making progress!!!
Spring Cleaning done, too....I love the smell of PINE SOL!
Next: the top of my double closet shelves...OUT to make room for the clogs that I will wear.
Wish me luck! I'm on a roll!

I'm on a rooooolllll! Best to GO! with it and UNload more! Son started talk about getting another Boxer dog last night. IF he puts a fence up (I was given the fencing FREE) and makes a doggie in/out door on our back door, I absolutely will find us another rescue Boxer. I cannot and will not do it alone again. My pelvis and hips are still pained from an accident involving a young and goofy Boxer pup trying to chase the squirrels.
She is now with a friend's family with a Turbo Weenie dog for a playmate and 2 young girls to sleep with on the sofa and in their beds. I'm a sucker for a Boxer. Keeps me even MORE inspired to get rid of everything!
We will see....what the son does...LOL.

Yikes, mook, have you seen a chiropractor? Bless you for adopting a rescue.

Well the BMW 2002 is all but sold... took a deposit... supposed to pick it up Saturday...

Now I'm thinking what's next...

I have a Deere 110 TLB that I really am not using enough to justify... it is very handy to have around but all of last year I put 24 hours on it... worth more than I paid and at 20k would go fast...

Either that or maybe thin some of the Model A duplicate parts I have... just not sure how many engines I really need to keep for spares...

LOL Ultra, I know the feeling of 'how many spares'!

Great news about the Bimmer. I've had the MB on craigslist for two weeks, not one phone call. If I don't sell it before we leave I told my step daughter I am giving it to her and her BF. He is a 'car guy' and I know he will get a kick out of it. At least he can sell it or trade it, they can use the money.

SD and her BF are also available to haul with his tractor+lowboy trailer all of our tractors, the backhoe if we take it, and our two trucks. That is really good news.

Nice to have your own in-house transportation resources!

The only way for me to move my Cat D3 Dozer was to start it up and drive it!

I have roaded the Deere 110 Backhoe a few times... not something I like to do... but to cheap to hire someone... have trailer... just not enough truck!

LOL, I doubt going from NY to FL would be acceptable by the local and state police, they kind of frown on that

I do have a backup plan, our neighbor has a lowboy, but the tractor isn't registered. He did offer to do it, though.

So happy for you all!

I am getting less worried and looking forward to the move. DH is really relieved that daughter and BF can do the big haul. He felt so much better yesterday.

So good that we completely dismantled the tractor that we've been working on for the last two months. All the good parts are clean and ready to go up on ebay.

The scrap is all loaded on the back of the old plow truck, ready for DH's BFF to take it away and cash in at the salvage yard. Saves us doing it and a little cash for the BFF.

One of his buddies stopped up on his Harley and visited for awhile, It was nice to see DH feeling good.

Another decent week on ebay, more stuff out the door.

Saturday I saw my consign lady, dropped off five boxes and she gave me some cash for the last load. :OK:
