Made it to LA and have seen my Mom 2x - she is altered and probably doesn’t have long. Just so glad I made it here in time.

Mom’s house is like walking into an alternate reality! The whole house is a disaster!! So gonna be a long process to get it clean and empty of junk!! One day at a time.

Thanks for the support!

I'm so sorry. Make sure you take care of yourself, too, during all of this.

Thanks! So tired and have only been here 2 1/2 days! Cleaning like a fiend and no end in sight! I will need to get help - maybe 1 800 Got Junk.

Try to find a local junk removal company as it will save you a lot of money. Companies like 1 800 Got Junk will charge more because they advertise and are franchises. I just needed to empty out my family home and a local junk removal company charged less then half of what 1 800 Got Junk wanted.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Do you know the entire story.
Or only what "they" want you to know
