21 Boxes

I have been cleaning out my house like never before.  21 boxes went out on the last charity pick up.  I'm accumulating more boxes for another pick up.  It's time to get this house ready so we can move on.  I've shed:

  • a rigid heddle table loom with stand
  • oak dining table
  • 2 dining chairs
  • wooden desk 
  • clothes and shoes
  • a box of new super soakers (it's hard to resist Target clearance)
  • over 100 craft books and magazines
  • yarn and fabric
  • Misc household items
The weird thing is, the more I get rid of, the messier the house seems.  I think it's because things are getting resorted and have to hang around out in the air for awhile.  It's like reaching critical mass before the end.  The sad part is, I'm not quite at critical mass yet.  More mess to come.

The Year of Shedding

2015 is the year is the year of shedding.

  • Shedding physical things
  • Shedding pounds
  • Shedding mental things
  • Maybe even updating the shed in the backyard
Each thing that comes up this year, I will see if it helps me with the shedding of things.  If it doesn't, I may not accept it into my life.  This blog will be my journey of this year of shedding.
