The posts I've been doing lately on Stuff are really about my desparation to regain control of my own house life. I can't do much painting and decorating until I get rid of the stuff. Tons of it. Right now I'm tackling this porch dump, ponderings of which were shared with you here. I suspect most people would look at this and think "horrors!" but I look at it and think "what I couldn't do with this!" Problem is, I've been thinking that for a few twelve years already. It's time.
