Food for Thought

"I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing."

Update on Two Week Purge

I'm halfway into my two week extreme decluttering venture. I wish I could say the work is at least half done, but alas, that's not the case. However, I still have a whole week to work, so here is the plan. Monday morning is going to be dedicated to a thorough cleaning of the kitchen. Tuesday, I plan to finish the hall. We're having crazy weather right now, so I may have to work the porch cleaning in around that. I still need to deal with the den and my room, but that will come later this week (I hope!).

We have hauled some stuff to storage and two loads to Goodwill so far. Tomorrow, I expect to add to that. We did a major weeding-out off the girls' clothes and tomorrow we are tackling all the boys' clothes. I'll keep you posted as other progress happens!
