Phew! I’m exhausted.
We just moved, which is why I haven’t been able to post (like, at all). We only moved across town but we have SO MUCH STUFF (okay most of it is mine). My mom passed away last year and my dad is moving the the other side of the country so I’ve inherited most of their stuff…and they had a lot of it. Add that to all the stuff I have, the small amount that belongs to my husband, and my child’s ridiculous amount of clothes and toys and you have plenty to fill a 1900 sq foot house. Too much, really. I have no idea how we squeezed into our old 1500 sq foot home!
I’ve been really trying to minimize my belonging and only keep what has meaning and a ‘place’ but growing up with the “I might be able to use it one day” mindset, I’ve been having a hard time. So after countless trips to Goodwill, frustrating online sales posts, and two huge yard sales, I’m ready to be done for a while. I’m still not where I’d like to be as far as just owning less clutter, but my thought process has changed. I’m not buying as much junk, and I’m making sure everything gets put away or tossed. Baby steps.
Anyway, I’m sorry I was gone for so long. I’m going to try to do better now that we have internet. I just started nannying an almost 2 year old so it’s a whole new world over here these days. This was just an update post to say I haven’t abandoned my blogging goals!
