365 Writing Prompts: Cleaning house
Is there “junk” in your life? How do you get rid of it?
When I look at the stuff we collected over the years I wonder, how will I get rid of it. It is not easy,but it has to be done. I have taken care of some, but there is much more left that needs to leave the cozy comfort of my house to somewhere which might be appreciated.
I had a burgundy velvet sofa set, I liked it a lot but thought it was in my house long enough, it was time for it to find a new home.I called the city, paid for the service and had it out in my lawn, the passers by, questioned whether I was really throwing it out, one motorist said, “Why it’s in such a good shape?”
I ignored what he had to say, left it out in the yard, one guy in a pick up truck showed up thirty minutes later, loaded his truck and drove away.
This is how the furniture was taken care of, there are other things that I need to say good-bye to, with the weather getting cooler the frequent rainfall keeps me from putting it out on the curb, the question in my mind is, what if no one picks it up the thought of dragging it all back in is not an option,so I’d have to wait for a better season to clean my house.
