LilyFestre Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 11 Nov 18


Today I cleaned out more of my closet coming up with a large kitchen trash bag full of things to go to either Goodwill or Sally's.   Jeremiah found a few things as well.

I'm not sure this counts as decluttering but I went to a craft fair yesterday and came home without making any purchases. I used to love craft fairs but anymore, unless something is really screaming my name, I walk on by. There was one woman there selling mittens that she makes out of old sweaters and lines with polar fleece which I happen to LOVE but at this point in my life, I have several pairs and really...no REALLY do NOT need any more! I did stop to ooh and ahh over them and held a few but I didn't purchase anything.

The women who I am close (proximity and otherwise) to at work and I did some rearranging at work. It's funny how it happened....one of the girls got a large metal desktop organizer which prompted her to do some rearranging and the conversation over the top of our cubicles turned into how much we wanted some extra filing cabinets either for each of our spaces or larger ones to put at our end of the office. We also all agreed that we wanted another 5 drawer filing cabinet in the main office where all client information is kept under dual lock and key as currently we each have one drawer to ourselves....each being full to the max making it difficult to retrieve and return our daily client files. We have a great maintenance guy and we talked with him about what we wanted. He told us he had some things in storage and if we would be able to condense one of the large 5 shelved cabinets in the main office, he'd bring us another 5 drawer filing cabinet. I imagine you've never seen a group of women empty, sort, toss and condense office items into a different space in such a short time. Our new 5 drawer cabinet arrived but then our maintenance man brought a 3 drawer and a 2 drawer for us to keep at our end of the building (no client files, only Department of Health and Office of Mental Health paperwork that we use on a daily basis) so we don't have to run to the office all the time. We collectively decided that since there are 5 of us, we'd each get a drawer to do whatever we want with. We are all very excited and some serious decluttering is happening in our cubbies....and the thing is, we're all having fun with it. Nesting at the office is most interesting! :) Also, given the change from Halloween to Thanksgiving, we are all changing up our personal decorations as well.

Today I decluttered my car of the Whattachairs that have been kept in the car all season for soccer and assorted family events. I like when my car is basically empty. :)

We decluttered 1/3 of our chicken flock as well recently and have a freezer full of free range chicken for the winter. :) It's a great feeling knowing what our food consists of.

On the health front, the LiveStrong Program has been delayed a bit so I don't have much to report on that front. I have, however, found a new endocrinologist and am having incredible success with my glucose levels since he instituted some insulin changes. I also have a FreeStyle Libre which is a sensor that I can wear for 10 days that allows me to check my blood sugars with a scanner...no more pricking my fingers. This means I check much more frequently and am able to really see how certain foods and activities affect my glucose levels. New thyroid medications are on board too. I am hopeful that I will be having much more energy and feeling better soon.

That's all for now. Hope everyone is well.

Michelle
