throw out 50 things :: items 26 - 31

Thank you all for your kind comments and encouragement from yesterday's post. I hope I didn't mislead you into thinking that we're miserably depressed about not making our May 31 deadline. As badly as we didn't want to pay another month of rent, in making that decision, a lot of burden has been lifted from our shoulders. We're a busy bunch, but we're a smiling bunch.

And in the meantime, I have continued to declutter and get rid of unloved and unuseful things around the house.

Item #26
Universal remote brought from previous house.
-- Goodwill

Item #27
Stacking system (always falling over, and not space efficient)
-- Goodwill

Item #28
Kid's shoes (notice the odd number?!)
-- 3 shoes went into the trash,
-- green pair was given to 4's friend

Item #29
Stack of magazines
-- Recycled

Item #30
Plastic sorting containers (I had good educational intentions for these, but never followed through)
-- Recycled

Item #31
More items from my closet
-- Goodwill

31 items out, 19 to go.
I've gotta admit -- I'm wondering what else I'm going to 'throw out.' God knows I haven't gone through each and every drawer, cupboard, and closet in this house. And God knows that we still have 'excess' coming out our nose, so I guess I'll just keep plugging away.

How about you? Done any purging or decluttering lately? You know you wanna!

radio silence

My apologies for the radio blog silence. There has been a lot going on over here...

Unfortunately --with the whirlwind of activity-- I'm a little 'over' posting about it. Having lived it, I don't feel like regurgitating all of it in blog posts. Which makes me a bad blogger. I know this.

It's just a phase. I'll get over it, and I'll be back to regular postings soon. In the meantime, maybe you'll like like a Clif's Notes version of what I should be posting about.

I should write a post about how the fireplace went in on Monday. And I really really should write a post about the fireplace fiasco (not our fault) and how it was supposed to go in on Friday.

I should write a post about how the french doors went in. And then got taken out. And now they're back in.

I should also write a post about appliances. I should tell you the pros and cons of each brand, and I should definitely include information about price differences and rebates, but... blah! I'd rather just tell you that we're thisclose to ordering a few things...

I should write a post about the wood flooring going in upstairs.

And I should really, really write a post about how we're not going to make our May 31st timeline. In fact, I will write more about this topic soon.

 But not now.
