I have a bit to do today. My great niece is having her graduation party tomorrow. I promised my niece that I'd make a salad. I have the salad made. I just have to take time to run it over to her. A church rummage sale is right by her house. I know I promised myself I'd lay off the garage/yard/rummage sales for awhile, but...church sales usually have a lot of good stuff because everyone in the congregation brings something. I might limit myself to 20 minutes in the place.
I want to get away for the night tomorrow. Why does it take just as long to get ready for an over-nighter as it does for a longer period of time? Maybe it's just my way of veering off on another task or just taking too long. I haven't really started. I will set my timer and give myself one hour.
I'm finding it still a little difficult to get into this new schedule. But I'm trying very hard and am seeing some improvement. I did go through my clothes yesterday. I filled a tall kitchen garbage bag full of stuff that I knew I wouldn't wear anymore. I immediately took the bag to the Salvation Army. That way I am not tempted to go back through it and it's not sitting around the house.
I've been thinking about my life and my house and just feel like I'm ready for some kind of change. I'm just not sure what kind of change that I'm looking for. I found a list of questions to ask myself about what my value system is. I want to take time to answer these questions to see if that helps me.
I think if I manage to clean the house and re-arrange things and maybe then I'll feel better.
I am determined to go through the house in the month of August and pretend that I'm moving. That way I ask myself as I'm cleaning "Do I really want to move this?"
So I'm off and running...
