when you're ignoring your schoolwork! In class today, I realized that only two weeks remain of class! Actually, it's just under two weeks, but still, it's almost over!! That certainly brought a smile to my face, not to mention a bit of befuddlement as to how it could already be so late in the session! I mean really!! It just started!!
I've been working on cleaning and clearing things at home as well as finishing up some projects that I started last year.
Remember the painting? I have finally painted that poor back wall that sat neglected with only the trim done for over a year!! Check it out!
'Sabout time too, I say!!
As for clearing out the clutter, while often I do tend to "shuffle" the mess from one room to the next, I realize that as I continue this process, I am having less to shuffle around. I am also resisting the temptation to buy more stuff as I do make room by clearing out. One of these days, I'll have to take a deep breath and start getting rid of all these old magazines that are taking up shelf space.
Many of them are photo magazines that I haven't taken the time to read yet. I have the argument with myself:
V1:"if you haven't read them now, chances are pretty good that you won't read them at all."
V2: "Nooooo!! I'll read them!! Really!! I will!! I just don't know when!!"
V1: "Exactly. It's just taking up space. Get rid of them.
V2: "nooooooo! There might be something in there that's important!!!!"
V2: "well, it hasn't been important enough up to now, has it? Get rid."
As you can see, this is a circular battle with the nooos getting longer and whinier. Logic vs. emotion. It's an ugly, epic battle going on here. Eventually, if I can get the emotional side to feel good about letting it go, then it'll be easy. The time does keep moving closer, and I'm sure I'll blather about it when it finally does happen, but in the meantime, the internal struggle continues.
For a different bit of news, it's raining. I don't think we've had a good rain since I came back and I don't know since how long before then! So, this rain is welcome even though it is bringing colder weather (grrr....) I shall suck it up. My plants will be happy and I have to admit, it's really nice falling asleep listening to the rain fall.
