Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
A rare day at home alone for me. Much needed on many levels. I'm spending the day between puttering/decluttering and resting.

Just the short time I spent in the kitchen has made a HUGE difference. My nana always said that when things look overwhelming, start in one corner and work your way around. Such a smart woman! She would be proud of me I think. :)

Weekend plans here include soccer for my little man, playing with a group of local violinists, some quilting time and relaxation, maybe some cards or a movie at home and popcorn.

One construction size garbage bag filled with things we no longer need went with Pete this morning to be dropped off at Sally's on his way to work.

I also have some plans for this weekend to go through a big cupboard that is full of CDs that belonged to my Nana. I've had them for over a year now and haven't played one of them. I will keep a few that I remember listening to with her but the rest have already found a home. There's lots of big band music and other music from the WWII era. It's funny how sometimes I feel like I need to hang on to some items because they had belonged to someone I love. I really do struggle with that which is why my house is so overloaded. I'm getting better at it but there are just some items I can't part with, it's the connection, I'm sure.

Have a great weekend everybody!
