My weekend was exhausting!
My adult children and I went to the zoo. I think they mostly went to eat.
So eat they did!
This was my office. I had the entire front reception area including the fire escape door. Lovely.
The owner of the building had leased out the space to someone who owned a used furniture store. The tenant stopped paying and so he locked him out and took him to court. Imagine his surprise when he went to the building and discovered four floors filled with JUNK! This was definitely a hoarding situation.
This was the neatest portion of the place.
Piles and Piles of junk. It was amazing. My sister and I spent an hour just roaming and looking at stuff. There is no way you can get the full effect of how much stuff there was. I can only ask that you picture your garage filled, floor to ceiling with a path through the middle than mutiply that by at least twenty times the space.
Then a quick dinner and then I went home and my son and I went shopping at Lowes. Paint, primer, supplies and new floor tiles.
For mothers day my son and I worked. We emptied his room and then spent 9 hours scrubbing and scraping and cleaning and then priming. We have stucco walls so my hands are so beat up. So many scrapes & cuts and paint.
All of his stuff is now scattered between the living room and our extra bedroom which is really my workout room and closet. So no treadmill or bike or PANTS until I finish. Luckily I haven’t done laundry all week so I have a basket full of dirty pants to wash. 🙂 Oddly he picked out colors that match the extra bedroom that I redid a couple of years ago. I don’t think he has even noticed.
I also have a lawn that must be mowed. If the grass dries out maybe tonight I will mow instead of paint so I’m done with that.
