This 'down-sizing', or whatever you want to call it, that I have been doing never seems to end. I still have STUFF in my old house that I need to clean out but man, it's hot weather and I hate hot weather. I just keep putting off all that hard, sweaty work.
I know I need to sell that place. It's not much fun on my pocketbook (oh lordy, how long has it been since I heard that term) keeping up two places. And, I sure would love to just be settled into the apartment and not have to worry about anything else.
My wonderful daughter, Shirley, put my left-over furniture on Craig's list and has sold most of it. Oh, there's an odd floor lamp or two, a mirror or two, a rocker (dang, I hate to get rid of that rocker). Maybe it not being bought, it's trying to tell me something. Shirley has packed and dragged out and arranged and fixed... without her that house would still be full!!
It's the funniest thing, too. I don't miss all that STUFF. I am doing so well with what I was able to bring with me. Life sure is funny, isn't it? We think we have to have possessions and then those things began to possess us. I feel a real sense of freedom.
I hope all of you finish out the week with a smile on your face and hope in your heart.
