It was a big day when I finally let go of the Pack Rat article. It was from the Boston Globe, and it was 35 years old. Never mind that I had never quite figured out what to name the file folder I was going to keep it in, or that it had peanut butter on it, and the lady in the picture had moved far away. I had discovered in my mind that glitch you see hoarders have, clinging to your stuff as if you'd otherwise fall down a cliff. That was a big day, all right; but many more big days had to come before I could go from FullHaus to EmptyNest. And it's still a work in progress.
