We are moving to Nagoya Japan in a little over a month!
Because of this impending news, I have been cleaning. Why is it I wait for some big event to go through old boxes and files and CRAFT CLOSETS??? Then I get distracted by overwhelming projects like scanning every
living single photo I come across. I do work best under pressure, although there is too much to be done.
I actually started in my closet. Have you seen the craze over the book "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Japanese author, Marie Kondo? I knew I needed help in this area, so I gave it a whirl. It worked really well, even though I've only used it for my clothes. Sorry, this is an UGLY PICTURE ALERT.
These are literally all of my clothes pulled out of the closet and drawers and stacked in my room.
Empty, empty. I gave away a large amount of clothes that I never wear and I don't miss a thing. Later, going through my photos led to a little panic over a rather large missing segment of our life. I couldn't find those pictures anywhere. Finally, victorious, they had been hidden under a larger box and not opened for years. Here are some treasures from that period.
Okay, skip a few years.
Look at how young I looked, even with gray hair!
Back to the not-so-pretty pictures. There have been a lot of trips to the thrift store to donate, donate, donate. I don't have the patience or time for a garage sale. I'm not sure who would traipse up here anyway for one.
Well, one last pretty photo for your viewing pleasure. Cuz who doesn't like flowers?
Goodnight all. Hopefully, I'll post more exciting updates next time.
