This was a challenge post: Write about something that you think if people knew about you would scare you senseless.
I don’t know why admitting all of the following scares me. Maybe it is because people will think “oh she has given up”. NOPE! People might think “oh she is scared”. MAYBE but I am SCARED of a lot of things and do them anyway. People might thing “oh she is hoping the right guy will see this and so it is secreatly a call for dates”. NOPE and if you are a guy who sees this. Please don’t think me rude but this isn’t about you. This is not about any one of those things above.

I have decided that I need a weekly reminder of things that I have to be Thankful For! Feb 11 2016: Ugly Crying Books that make you ugly cry (I am looking at you Me Before You) Movies that make you cry even though you have seen them 5000 times (Bridget Jones Diary) Friends that get you even when you don’t get yourself! Finding books/journals that you forgot you had and reading how far you had come since then (2004 in this case) Friends that make you laugh over silly things: Football is totally historical in nature.

I am purging this year–really trying just to keep things that mean something to me, I can use, and/or things I need.
So I read…. I did this over the Holidays and finally decided (a month later) to roll up my sleeves/get to work! So I started in my bedroom. I am not following her exact rules (aka I don’t have a dresser so all my shirts hang up) but I am following the main one: hold every single item in your hand and determine keep/throw out (I have a garage sale room). I worked 8 hours yesterday on two closets. That is all I got done! I moved out 4 bags of garage sale stuff and 3 bags of trash. It was a TON of work but in the end I feel lighter already. I won’t be able to work again on it until 2/20 but I look forward to getting back to it! I found some interesting things (1 closet was a “catch all” so it was full of a […]
I have decided that I need a weekly reminder of things that I have to be Thankful For! Feb 4 2016: Little Things Book Clubs that make me laugh: This past Monday was a total blast! Lot of good conversation, laughs, and book talk. Friends that are there for you: Better yet, they let you be there for them! Dogs that are NUTTS: They make me laugh with their antics and remind me to look at the bright side. Weekends with no Plans: Sometimes you just need to recharge! Lunch with Mom: Always fun and a great way to get in some girl talk!
