Even my cat, Bama, wants to help.
Over the past week I’ve also had major packing and cleaning help from Chris, Patty, Skip and Sue. Down and dirty help, especially from Chris. She and I have cooked a half dozen charity dinners in my kitchen, so she knows her way around my house, and we work really well together.
I can’t imagine tackling a job of this size alone. Friends are indispensible. A friend:
- sees your stuff objectively and isn’t emotionally attached to it,
- talks you through challenging decisions,
- helps you stay on task,
- keeps you from getting discouraged,
- makes the work much less painful
And I believe they take perverse pleasure in being able to deal cavalierly with Stuff that’s not their own. A thousand hugs to all of you.
