I do feel as if I’ve fallen off the blogging bandwagon a bit in recent weeks. I just realized that I’ve missed two What I Ate Wednesdays in a row. Not good. I realized that yesterday and dutifully took a picture of my lunch when we went out. Of course, I’m saving it for next week!
I’ve had my head in a box, or a bag or under a rock for quite a while now. For a couple of reasons, my progress has slowed, but I am NOT giving up. I had been going full force for several weeks and I suppose I needed this break. I’ve done some smaller projects and to his credit, Ralph has gotten some things done which I appreciate.
I was proud of myself that on Monday the recycling went out with my big Yard Sale signs that I’ve had for quite a few years.
You may remember them from this summer’s yard sale. I’ve decided…No more yard sales for me. I did a lot of work for very little return and I figured if there will be no more sales, I don’t need them anymore. Even they were hard to part with because Ralph had made them for me, but what did I need them for now? I was surprised what was behind them when I moved them…a Lot of stuff I can get rid of! Love it!
I’ve decided that when the time comes that we’re ready to leave the house, I’m going to use a friend’s suggestion. An ad on Craigslist that says For Sale…Contents of House. Whatever is left that I don’t want, will be for sale. If it doesn’t go, I make a call to the thrift store where I’ve been donating everything. They even pick up! I love it.
Just to give you an idea of how things are going…this is what my poor porch looks like after all of my foraging.
I haven’t been neat about it, I just need to get them out of my way. The boxes in the back corner are all packed. In fact they are some of the boxes I went through last week to weed out books. Those are ready to Go when we go. These in the front will be re-packed with things to go with us.
Funny thing is, I was feeling I was heading for a slump but now that I talk about it, I’m feeling much better. Every day…If I just keep working at it every day…I’ll get there.
