I Take it Back!

I’d arranged for the Department of Sanitation to pick this up from the curb tomorrow, but apparently I am not ready to let it go. It’s a shelving unit that belonged to my mother. I’ve had it for almost twenty years but I’ve kept it folded up and have never used it.

I’m not keeping it for sentimental reasons. I’m the opposite of a hoarder, I love paring down my possessions. Why can’t I let this go?? It’s pretty. Maybe if I had someone to give it to?
