Sweep


Three black garbage bags went out to the alley.
The rest of the stuff in this picture went to Goodw*ill.
Some of it came from my two youngest children's rooms but most of it came from my bedroom.

What is most surprising...okay, other than that I have lived with that much extra stuff for far too long...
is how great it feels to have it gone.

Not bad or sad or ....
++++this post is interrupted to briefly describe my youngest son and his insane curtain hiding behaviours - very recently he has taken to wrapping himself in draperies and then peeking out and saying ooooola booooola to me and tell me about how he is the curtain god and how I have offended him----- oh and my youngest daughter just got off the phone with her birth grandma and came and whispered at me that grandma was asking her if she had been reading the bible that grandma had given her and that she had to lie to grandma and say yes, because she had given the bible away months ago!!!!!!! Without talking to a parent about it! So we just had an impromtu discussion about how we don't get rid of bibles/etc. without checking with a parent first - because it can preserve family harmony...etc. etc. Now I am almost too tired to finish this post+++++++

....okay the whole getting rid of stuff feels good.



Oh, and the other most surprising thing?
That there is still stuff to deal with!!!!!

I did the same thing when I moved. Amazing how much space we now have.

Somebody get bored with the squeeze box?

Doesn't it feel good to get rid of stuff to make room for the new junk? :)
