Today is: "Clear away as much as possible, to begin Holiday Dressing the House".

Problem is, (and most folks will not have much of a mental image from this description, but at least ONE will😁) Our House interior looks very much like the interior of a WWII era Submarine leaving Port for deployment!

OKAY! I have a better description: think of one of the "Hoarder" videos that show up on TV every so often! Ya kinda ned to make a swimming motion to make yer way from room to room!
know your pain, been thinning stuff out, moved a bunch around, i didnt remember there was a wall behind it........

As the son of a submariner, I understand.

The wife is always on the "We have too much stuff" tear, and usually directs that at me . . . on account of my (mostly) clearly marked, properly stored stuff. But I think she is finally coming to the realization that between our own purchases and gifts/hand-me-downs from other people, it's the ocean of kids' toys, books, clothes and random crap that got us here. As a sort of experiment, we started boxing/bagging up our daughter's stuffed animals, and she only noticed a couple that were missing, which we miraculously found and returned to her. Next was the clothes, and now furniture. The stuff just multiplies when you turn your back for a moment.

If she ever finds my ammo stash, though . . .

A little more “woodworking.”

Wood you cut yourself warms you twice!
Sometimes I think I should buy a log splitter for all the wood I split. Then I remember that the aggression taken out with a maul probably saves me from hammer fisting some douchebag in a grocery store because he runs into my wife without saying “excuse me”.
