Resolution #1: Clear the Clutter

We moved the broken clothes dryer to the garage. I called Allied Waste. Every year our garbage company allows each household two special pickups, which includes one large object plus up to 12 boxes or garbage bags.

We scurried through and around the house, scooping up old garden tools, a rusty one-speed bicycle, and clothes too decrepit for Goodwill. It wasn’t difficult filling the 12 boxes and bags. Why hadn’t we done this sooner?

New Year’s Resolution #1: clear the clutter. How to measure progress: if we call Allied Waste twice for special pickups.

No going back: we watched the truck crush everything.
