woot! i haven't been participating in the thread, really, because i can't keep up and i can't keep count, but i'm chugging along. right now, i have a couple boxes waiting to go. the most exciting thing i did was my closet. i got rid of: bedding for the wrong size bed; a bunch of curtains i didn't like; boat-loads of clothes that didn't fit or i just didn't like; some guilt-factor afghans i've been wanting to dump for a long time and finally gave myself permission to do so.
this week, i want to attack my book shelves. dh is hoardy with books, but many of the books are exclusively mine, no way he would ever be interested in them, so i'm going to purge. when we rearranged our books a year ago, he talked me into keeping scarlett
, the sequel to gone with the wind. @@ we also have a bunch of stupid books we've received as gifts, and the books i intend to read but never do. goodbye!
the other thing i'm thinking about is the peter walsh idea of giving special things a place of honor. like, i have tons of beautiful photos of my babies, but they're just in boxes and drawers. not a single one is on the wall.
that's a crying shame and i've got to do something about it. (and, yeah, i already have the frames. also purchased about a year ago, a bunch of plain ones that will coordinate and that i can add to as time goes by without feeling i need to replace them.) maybe when i put them up, i'll also be able to get rid of the ones that aren't so great.
