Mom's new house is almost built. It's on the same land she lives on now and the address will stay the same. Next Tuesday the bulldozers will arrive to take down the old house. We are going to watch them tear it down next Tuesday over glasses of Champagne or expensive coffees depending on how early it is. Mom started this project by doing an inventory of anything in the old house we'd like to keep or transfer over to the new house - woodwork or windows etc. and upon doing the giant walk through she decided there wasn't anything she needed to keep beyond the brand new door they recently bought (it's going on the pole barn). I wish I could just let go of my junk like that. She's moving just her favorite furniture, pots & pans, dishes and clothes and the rest is going to charity. I'm jealous. Would you start over with just your absolute favorites?
