gwalchmai Posted February 16, 2021 Share Posted February 16, 2021 Seems like I've found myself in the old house cleaning bidness. In October of '19 my wife's aunt died, and my wife was her executrix, so we had to clean out and sell her house. Then my mom passed and my step-dad moved into assisted living so we had to clean out and sell their house. Last week my wife's uncle died and she's his heir. Today we went to his house to get it ready to sell. He's been in assisted living for a year and hadn't cleaned his house for at least a year before he moved. He was a bit of a hoarder and it looks like there's three or four truckloads of newspapers to throw out before we even get to the clothes and VHS tapes and clothing and stuff. My MIL spent over an hour working on the fridge and sinks today. It's grim, and grimy. I really don't mind because these folks were all good to us growing up but it sure makes me appreciate the need to get rid of unnecessary stuff and to make arrangements for when we pass. 6 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
