Shop With Me

Friday, February 1, 2008


Well, It is another TGIF (Thank God It's Friday) day today. Looking forward to a two day reprieve. However, I don't think it will be that. This is the weekend I plan to start my spring cleaning. It's only 47 days til spring and it is never too early to start. I have decided I have too much darn junk and I need to get rid of some of it. I am a paper person. I just love paper, books, magazines, notebooks, newspapers, loose paper. It all finds me and I seem to hang on to it. So this weekend I am going to TRY to let go of some of it. I will let you know how it goes.

On another note, The snow situation is improving. there was only a trace of snow yesterday but I hear there is more in store for the weekend. Our area of Washington and North Idaho has been declared in a state of emergency. Buildings have collapsed, roads closed, the major freeway between Spokane and Seattle has been closed since Tuesday. I have decided I am moving to Arizona. At least I think it is warmer there - even a few degrees would be okay with me. It has been so long since I have seen the sun I can't remember what color it is.

Well, I am off for a good night's sleep, Paper Mountain awaits me tomorrow.

In the words of my father, "That's it for today".

I enjoy reading your musings. Years ago my husbands health took a turn for the worst and he said he needed to retire at 55- so I made a sign to hang that said "simplify don't buy-so we can retire" and that really helped turn our attitudes around. Hope this helps you. He's 62 now and happily retired for 7 years.

Throw it out, Jenny. You'd be surprised at the feeling of freedom it gives you!
