We're having some remodeling work done to the house. It's a long overdue repainting of the kitchen, first floor hall, half-bathroom, and second-floor landing. While I hate the upheaval, and having the place look like a wreck for a week, it's giving us a chance to take a look at some things in the house we might not need anymore. I'm thinking specifically of my box of Magnetic Poetry pieces, which I placed on the side of the fridge maybe 6 years ago and never looked at again. I think the time is past for Magnetic Poetry -- I peeled off the pieces and threw the long-dusty and grimy box into the trash.
