Packing and Painting and Parents

So my parents are in town to help me around the house. Hopefully, we'll be able to get the upstairs -- essentially a large finished attic -- all squared away this week. One less thing for Jack Bauer to do when he gets home.

Yesterday we went through a lifetime of stuff that hasn't moved for five years. Papers, books, photos, office supplies, silk flowers, childhood memorabilia, Jack's baby pillow, ammunition, you know, stuff. We got it all packed into strage bins. The plan is to get the stuff out of the big room so we they can give it a fresh coat of bright white paint. My dad is an expert painter. :D

We are going to try to have some fun this week too. Might have to take in a few sights that they haven't seen, walk the dogs, and enjoy having someone cook for me.
