Day One of Operation Obliterate is done. We were able to remove the vast majority of things from the basement, and all of the living room. The stove, washer and dryer are now gone as well. There remains much work on getting the fridge and old dishwaster out. Also the office space has to be emptied, and so does the upstairs. So the house is about 1/2 empty. That’s the good news. The bad news is, the house is only 1/2 empty and thus I have suddenly found myself behind my own schedule. The dumpster is also over 1/2 full already. And so it goes. This will happen — not that there is much choice at this point.
