Here are my entire two-bedroom apartment and most of the memories of my life in Chicago. I've been paying rent to store it all in this safe, clean, dry place -- which literally has a white picket fence and a pond with a fountain -- for almost three years, and I doubt I'll ever need most of it again. I'm stupidly not quite ready to let it go -- mostly because I've yet to use all the Shady Pines jokes I've stored up -- but I'm sure there will be a day soon when I'll want it all to go to good homes. And I do visit it occasionally.

Today's challenge: Find all my Halloween decorations, sort through them at home to keep anything I may still like, and give the rest to Goodwill now while they have value to the Goodwill shoppers. Wish me luck!
