I conquered the top two dresser drawers over the weekend…almost. I’ve got about half a drawer’s worth of things that I know I need to keep but am not yet sure where to house them permanently. I’m still counting it a success, though. Tonight, we conquer the laundry pile. Our laundry room has been mostly unusable for the past five years or so because we’ve got so much stuff (and clean laundry), so I’m anticipating a great purge is to come tonight. I swear, our tax return next year is going to rock.
The de-cluttering euphoria is helping, but I’m still overwhelmed by how much work it is to be a functional adult. We’ve been in “survival mode” for so many years that we’ve forgotten how to take care of ourselves. I mean, I cleaned the entertainment center before Christmas, and there’s dust on it again. Ugh. But, functional adults dust things. And fold clean laundry.
Bear with me for a bit while I find my blog voice. There’s so much that I want to do and talk about, but I mostly find myself staring at the screen getting overwhelmed and feeling that I’m profoundly boring. I don’t cook enough to be a food blogger, I don’t knit enough to be a knit blogger…I don’t have a kid, so I can’t be a mommy blogger. I’m not a runner (yet), but even if I was, I think running blogs can be a little boring. As is often the case in life, I’m not quite sure where I fit.
I’ll leave you with a picture of the moon I took the other night; it’s COLD in Charlotte, right now, and they’re even talking about a wintry mix tomorrow night. I’d be thrilled if we got a little snow.
