It's spring-cleaning time at our house. How about yours? Here, our goals were grandiose as we tackled the storage room in our basement. Let me just mention that when we built our house and moved in 14 years ago, "the basement storage room" was the pat answer given to any family and friends who were enlisted to help us move and who asked where to put a random item or box. And there, in a lonely corner of the lower level, much of the randomness had remained. This means, of course, that the items in question were not needed, are not needed, and will likely never be needed again. That includes the stash of 10 baby blankets I discovered in a sealed storage bin. I washed them carefully, recalling fond memories of swaddling my two babies who are now 20-somethings. Then I put the blankets in a bag in the back of my car, alongside a dozen other bags headed to Goodwill. The storage room cleaning process took days. I didn't like doing it, but I did it.
