labor day

Spent time today helping Dad clear out his basement from the water he's got down there. Since it has rained all summer, the ground is saturated and thus the water problem. My sister, niece, and their cleaning lady made a brigade to haul stuff out of the way. And, I can honestly see where my hoarding tendencies come from. It was overwhelming to haul all the decorative stuff out of there. Some is water-damaged beyond repair but a lot was just... stuff. Lots went but a lot of artwork was saved. My Labor Day actually consisted of labor.

But, of course, that led to a nap.

Ah, so the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! I'm glad the beautiful stuff was saved.
