What a Bunch of Junk!

Heather and the boys are a gift from heaven.  Today, while Marti and I were both at work, they organized, compacted and hauled bunches of boxes of old things we had stored in the basement and brought it all up to the garage.

I was able to get home early, so we loaded up my old trusty Jeep pickup and Heather's van and hauled it all to the dump and recycling center.

First load

Andrew and the second load

Heather's van loaded to the gills

Owie enjoyed throwing junk into the dumpster.

But I think he wore himself out going up and down the basement steps.

After we were done, Marti came home from work and we took Heather and the boys out for a special dinner treat to our favorite Japanese restaurant.  The boys loved watching the chef cook our dinner.

We finished off the night with Marti and the boys playing Wii.  Notice who has the controller.

Tomorrow is a few more boxes of old stuff and a search through all the boxes of Christmas decorations, we're going to try and distill them all down to one box.  Keep your fingers crossed.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

PS:  Bigdawg and Freeway - Your prize is on the way.  Enjoy!


  1. Ahh, the Christmas decorations. I told my two boys that I would go through them, box them up and send them each a box. This will be the hardest task for me I think :( Lots of memories in those things..

  2. Way to guys make work seem more like FUN ;O)

    Keep on keeping on and Merry Christmas to all of you!!

  3. Looks like the house is really losing weight :)

  4. What's that saying about many hands making work something or other?? Oh, that's before my time, so I get a free pass on remembering it, right? :) Keep up the hard work! You're really doing this!!!

  5. I'm sure that was a load (or two) off your mind. ;)


  6. I bet the boys make great Wii partners, and no guilt play time! Don't you just feel lighter after getting rid of the junk!?! Just think you are now one step closer to living the dream... :)


  7. We have been there and done that. I actually felt alot better after we purged most of our STUFF

    Wishing you, Marti and your Family and very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year
