Shaking out the cobwebs... it's time...
He just listed his Dolphin Stadium seat on Ebay, I love not having to have a yard sale to get rid of stuff. I am not a yard sale kind of person. I have a feeling Ebay and Craigslist are going to become two of my best friends as I proceed down this path. Unless my daughter wants to have a yard sale... hint, hint... she is amazing at it. I simply don't want to do that...
I am going through my craft room, so much needs to go... I am simply not going to ever start cross-stitching on a grand scale ever again. I find it a bit boring. Unfortunately for me, I used to love it! I have so many books, several large tubs, probably a few hundred books, these need to all go away... okay maybe not all, but most of them. There are a few that I will use again. Hopefully by the end of today I will have a nice Craigslist posting done with all of them listed. I have a feeling some knitting and quilting books and items will make the list too... Heck I think I even dabbled in stamping at one time... that needs to go too!
I also want to get rid of one of the freezers, I simply don't want or need it anymore. I have one that I use and one that takes up space... I need to get rid of the one taking up space. I am just tired of so much stuff.
I am also working on a bag or two to donate to Saver's... I completely love that store, I love that it donates a portion of it's sales to the Vietnam Veteran's Association. Not to mention it is a joy to shop in.
I think we are both pack rats, nope I am sure that we both are. We have so much clutter. I am not sure if it is memories, lack of time, or simply not important enough to worry about. Hmmm... All I know is I am tired of clutter. It is making me stressed.
I honestly think that is why I love the country so much. I only have exactly what I need there. Nothing at all more than that. It makes life feel so much less complicated. I am ready to move on to that state of mind here too. I need to declutter.
I have spent the morning ironing fabric and sorting it out. It is time to make some serious scrap quilts, maybe I will keep them, maybe I will gift them, maybe I will sell them. But all those beautiful fabrics sitting around is shameful and wasteful.
I guess I am at a turning point, I guess that I have finally reached the point in my life that things are not as important as the people. I need little, use little, but I am surrounded by so much.
Yep... it's time...
