Whoa! It was a sweaty day - dragging all the junk from the backyard to the front driveway. But we did it - in the 90 degree heat! Who knew it would get so hot!
Here's the deal. 1-800-GOT-JUNK is not cheap. I'm sure we could have done it ourselves for much cheaper. But that would have meant several trips to the dump, plus yanking all that stuff onto and out of Robert's truck. Or we could have employed a freelance worker who would have done the job for cheaper, but we wouldn't have been able to book online, pay with Venmo, and schedule at our convenience, not to mention having to find a free lance worker who is bonded and insured.
The bottom line is...we're 65. We're done doing things the hard way. We just don't have the bandwidth, or the physical capacity to do what we might have done 30 years ago. And we are fortunate enough to be able to spend the little extra to have someone do it for us. I feel perfectly ok with that. Better than ok.
It was totally worth it. Thanks, buddy for the spring cleaning!
