2020 has brought us a lot of headaches. There is no need for me to run down the list but I do want to mentioned that one of the things I have been waiting to do all year can finally happen. Now before you get excited and think I am talking about a cool vacation or a live event of some sort let me back up. 

The COVID-19 outbreak caused a major disruption in my household. All year long I will put things in the garage that I want to get rid of for good. I am talking about the things you should not throw in the trash. Things like hazardous household waste and electronics. I stack them up after fall cleaning then add to the pile all winter, because in the spring there will be a “dump” event I can go to that will allow we to dump all of those things responsibly.
