Well, I'm slow on the uptake, but it just occurred to me that when the room flooded:
Insurance paid people to take out the stuff I couldn't bring myself to.
And they're storing it.
And they will pay for a remodel I've wanted for years.
The stuff I wanted to get rid of for years, but Scherie couldn't part with, is gone now, and we get paid for it!
Just have to figure out how we want to reconfigure the room.
Now that it's dry.
