Subject: RE: BS: February Declutter - keep the faith!
I'm fighting this stiff neck, trying to keep it from getting worse, so I'm staggering my screen time and getting up to walk around. I scooped the yard yesterday afternoon in preparation for the first mow of the spring this weekend. The weeds are robust. So my list of things to do is growing, now that the yard is coming back to life, and the gardening always calls louder than house cleaning and de-cluttering does.

My son came *that* close this morning to asking where I put his guitar strings (we bought a pack of 20 sets for the electric a great price several months back). I knew that they had always been in his control, so I suggested they were lost in the clutter on his computer desk, and he did find them. He didn't quite come out with "what did you do with. . ." line because I think he had that nagging feeling that it would backfire and I'd nail him when they turned up. :) But I think I do need to clear more space in the cabinets by his computer and see if I can actually get him to use it. I'll move a chair that looks nice to sit on there but in fact is only used to pile up school books (in front of the cabinet).

It's a weekend for mowing and clearing out donations and recycling. Then we'll see what else needs work.
