Well gosh, I guess I haven’t been updating too much here. Honestly, aside from vacation I hane’t really had anything going on!
Well vacation; it was lovely. We had a fantastic time, we all got along the whole week which is a feat for 8 people in one condo. But we had a blast. It was relaxing, sunny, warm and full love fun and love. And that’s what family vacations are all about right?
Ah, and I did this while I was down there:
I utilized the gorgeous surroundings to get a good photo. :-)
I’m working on another “offensive doily” of my own design. This one isn’t as R rated as the last one. ;) But it’s much prettier! I’ll be sure to post photos when I’m done.
Brendan and I both seem to have gotten bit by the spring cleaning bug. Me, more the “simplify your life, lady!!” bug. I think it’s been from following the Zen Habits blog for awhile now. (http://zenhabits.net/) Yesterday’s post was on simplifying. I have a bad habit of hanging onto things for emotional reasons. I tossed a BUNCH of crap that’s just been sitting in the basement for years and years now. The amount of junk I’ve accumulated has gotten out of hand. I clean it out every time I move, but I’m still moving crap I haven’t touched in years. Mostly electronics. So, I’m making a visit to the Ebay store hopefully next week to unload all this. (I have 3 printers and a UHF TV, what the hell am I keeping these for?!?!) And sooooo much more junk. As mentioned before, mostly junk I’ve kept for emotional connections. No, I won’t toss my wedding albums from my failed marriage, but all those cards and letters, etc. Trash. The camping gear stays, but the 4 coffee makers I have for some odd reason… gone.
I’m thrilled that my basement shelves are literally HALF full now. They were overflowing.
Now about all this crap we’re storing for the theatre…..
