Light Blogging Until The New Year

Blogging will be sporadic until the New Year.

We are out in the frozen tundra of flyover country visiting family as well as cleaning out the Complementary Spouse's mother's house getting it ready for an auction. Grace is now living in a senior living center now and it is time to sell.

It is incredible how much stuff can be accumulated over 84 years of life, 50 years of marriage, and three kids!

My job is to sort through the financial records deciding what to keep and what to toss. The only problem is that they kept records of such good detail that it would cause a tax accountant's heart to flutter.

So, in the meantime, enjoy playing with your presents and cherish your time with family.


  1. I know the trip is not fun, but I also know you WILL do what is right. Sad way to end the year, but it's what we have to do. Best wishes for 2014!

  2. My wifes grandparents are downsizing from a gigantic home to a large one.
    They parroted the same feeling: how much stuff can be gathered in 50 years of marriage...and it's stressing them out a bunch!
    We'll be here when you get back.
