Craigslist Challenge is Encouraging

I challenged myself to get busy getting rid of things I’ve stashed but have no intention of keeping. I’ve had some success recently which is encouraging me to list even more items.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. I’m so glad you are having success with your Craigslist items. I’m hoping that with cooler weather in the fall I can start working on all the stuff in my sheds and clear out / organize stuff.
