Cleaning Up Leftover Messes

From the introduction to Marie Kondo’s beautiful Hikidashi Boxes to a trashed property restoration— it’s all part of this crazy life. 

I will tell the story, but I promised to share a few photos first. 

It’s been a couple of weeks since this property was returned to me from it's previous inhabitants. It could have been worse and it could have been better. 

All I know is the cabin is relieved to be free of the characters who lived there for eight years. It’s my duty to bring her back to life. 

Dozens of dump runs and gallons of bleach later, I'm making slow and steady progress clearing it up and clearing it out.

My alarm is set for 5 am to make the three hour trek from my home to the cabin. I might be eating more cookies and chips and lemonade to get me through this 😂.
