Perhaps I should title this post, Kicking Myself Into Gear, or even Kicking My Self in the Butt. I certainly feel in need of a kick of some nature. Again…perhaps the weather is conspiring with my current lack of motivation to make me feel this way. Perhaps it’s just me. I like having a scapegoat, but, it’s probably just me. 😦
I am not being as motivated as I had hoped I would be with my sorting and packing project. Yes, this house is a dark pit that needs a good clean out. We’ll never get out if we don’t begin.
Between now and Monday, I’m going to work on getting some structure into my plan. Then on Monday, I want to really focus and dig in and toss out. So much can be gotten rid of or assigned to the Yard Sale pile. I really should focus on that. Keeping in mind that I want to accomplish that in the Spring. If I keep that focus in mind, I can pin point the things I need to do.
I’ve been going through drawers, cabinets and books to see what can go. Nearly all of the books I read last year have gone into the yard sale pile. I think that’s a really big step for me. If I didn’t totally love a book, it’s going. That doesn’t help me handle the new books I’ve been accumulating from Goodwill. Well, at least I’m making room for the new ones, right?! 😉
I have boxes at sister Ele’s house which need going through as well. I think I’ll try to devote one day a week to that. I think there are some things in those boxes which are really just ready to be tossed all together. I just need to do that. Ok, I’m liking this way of thinking.
Clothes are something I really need to think about as well. I have so many things I don’t wear anymore. How can I wear them when they’re at the bottom of a plastic bin?! I don’t even know they’re in there! Many things can be assigned a place in the Yard Sale pile. I don’t know if clothes sell very well at yard sales, I don’t think I’ve ever included them. I can at least donate them after the sale if they don’t go. Besides, if I’ve lived without wearing them for this long, I don’t need them anyway.
One of the reasons I like writing BCDC is because talking to all of you helps me a great deal. It helps me to Focus which I always tell you is one of my issues. It helps me to talk through a situation and often makes it easier for me to figure out a plan…and boy do I need a plan right now! 😉
Now that you’ve all motivated me, I’m off to start my plan. Of course that will be after I ride my bike and read for an hour. It IS the riding that’s the important part, right…not the Reading?!? 😉
Happy Thursday! Let’s go accomplish something!
