I demolished my basement and left it like that for about two months. Before that, I had destroyed my bedroom by “cleaning out my closet ” and putting it all (my closet inhabitants ex: pants, tops, sweaters, leggings, shoes and glitter) in my garden tub. That took me about three months to go through and figure out which pieces I wanted to keep.
This current demolition even got me raised eyebrows from one of my doctors. My husband said he didn’t mind if it took me a week or so… Hello, March! My doctor who raised her eyebrows at me said, “Well it’s obvious that you’re ummm, errrr, (deep breath, sigh …) punishing the things that you own. How much did you give away to your various charities?”
He got really frustrated when he couldn’t get to the laundry room without using a mini path I made for him. He stepped on one of my tall black boots (often) which has a wood 3 ” heel.
I’m voting for oats, banana bread, no nuts. There’s only one corner left to fix in the main basement/office area. The guest room on the other hand…. duh, duh, dunnnnnnn.
