Today was overcast and a wee bit chilly in my neck of the woods so cleaning out my closet was the
chore chosen sport of the day. I do this at the start of every season and I always dread it for several days before I finally get on it. My self-made rule is to weed out anything I didn’t wear last season and give it to Goodwill.
I think what prompted me this season was watching the television show “Hoarders”. Have any of you seen this show? If you have, you know that seeing the homes in this show will make anybody start weeding out! I know I’m not a hoarder, really I do, but while watching these poor people climb over trash to get to their own beds (some can’t even get in their own beds for the junk), I start wondering how their homes got to this extreme chaos. And then I start wondering if my practice of keeping little items that other people would probably throw away because I just might use it in one of my craft projects one day could ever grow into not being able to walk to my bed over heaps of trash and junk! YIKES! It’s kinda like when you watch Dr. Oz and worry you have the disease of the day. Can anybody relate?? (I sure hope so.)
Anyway, it’s always a GOOD feeling when I’m done. It’s a feeling like you’re sitting in an adirondack chair on a brisk day drinking a glass of lemonade with a fresh breeze blowing through your hair. Hmmm…I think I’ve been watching too many TV commercials. I’ve got to get out of the house more!
