Progress Made

Life do git tarsum. I want a vacation - on the beach - in the mountains - close home - far away. Makes no difference. I'm never, ever going to catch up. Who cares? I don't know but I'm getting close to saying, "Forget it." My inside storage room became a junk dump over the year. I made a mad run through it and have room to store my "stuff" neatly and without stress. Give me a button!

I've always been a pack rat. Someone suggested that I read a book by Christopher Lowell and I took their advice. It sure gave me a different viewpoint. I loaned the book to someone else who is reading it. The two of us will have the most junk free homes in the city - given enough time, that is.

Christopher Lowell is great - my opinion. I always enjoyed his programs. He had/has really neat projects done very economically. I know his style isn't for everyone and I don't like everything he does but his ideas are great.

So much for my day.

We have a new president elect. He made some great promises and predictions. If they come to fruition we will indeed have a great country. I can hardly wait for the "spread the wealth" part. I should be in much better financial health. Maybe the vacation that I'm wishing for can become reality. My hopes and prayers are for his success and the continued greatness of this great country.

In the meantime, back to the salt mines - errrrr - the junk and clutter. Later folks.

I did a major basement clean-out a few years ago. Blogged all about it. Even posted a video. I was so proud. I guess I thought it would remain perfect from then on. Need I say more?

I try hard to NOT be a packrat......but I seem to be failing miserably. All the excess always winds up in my bedroom. gah! Perhaps I shall find this book you speak of:)

Smocha, the book is "Christopher Lowell's Seven Layers of Organization: Unclutter Your Home, Unclutter Your Life" It's the best of it's kind that I've found. For me his words cut right through to the heart of the clutter problem. Believe me, it's not easy to get through my thick skull but this book did.
