We threw away sacks of trash this weekend.
Hubby sorted out the boxes that started accumulating in the 2nd bedroom since we had the great flood and I sifted through folders and folders of documents that have accumulated since.. well.. since I gave birth to Swe-cha.
I finally got our docs organized into binders - health records, certificates, tax returns, coins (we collect coins), stamps (yes, we collect them too!) and Swe-cha's school records - and filed neatly in the filing cabinet.
We're both aching, sore and tired. I have long scratches across one arm (got them from the plastic folders).
We're doing this not just because my family is coming for a visit... but we're also doing this as part of the cleanup effort for when we move (hep hep... no getting excited yet, we don't have a house yet... this is just to get things ready "just in case"). As friend E says, "wag na ilipat ang basura, pampabigat lang yan."
