Wow, I did not realize just how much stuff could fit into a tiny room.
So it looks like I am moving at a snails pace though my ‘transformation’. 😦
I worked diligently thought the room for a week…then took the last few weeks off. I kept coming across things of my mom’s and it would overwhelm me emotionally.
I found a hand written 8 page letter that mom had given to me several years ago. I remembered the general continence of the letter, but could not resist sitting down to read it again…the tears just started rolling…so did the flood of emotions. Good, bad and everything in between.
All that to say…haven’t been back in the room…until today.
I wasn’t totally useless though…I did do a thorough cleaning of my bedroom. Bedroom, not the bedroom closet…yet. I spent a week with Buster and a few days hanging out with girl friends. The girls from work also though me a going a way party. And I have been studying up on how to Can fruits and veggies. Did you know you can Can anything? Butter, meat, chili…it’s like a whole world I never knew about.
So, I am back in the room, enjoying the empty space on the book shelves where the unwanted books used to gather. I got rid of several bags of junk, give away items and loads of books. I am amazed a how freeing it was to get all of that clutter out of the house. I am actually looking forward to getting rid of more stuff…want some? 😉
