Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
In my office, there are a few of us that have cubicles that we don't have to share with anyone. I am lucky enough to have one of those spaces with a window (where I am currently growing Forget Me Nots and two kinds of zinnias from seed, two spider plants are growing roots in pretty vases and a small potted white rosebush with a miniature trellis).   The cubicle behind mine was recently given to a new hire. She has been decorating which has given the other people in the surrounding cubicles the decorating bug which means I now want to fuss in my space. I had an extra long day yesterday and spent the final 30 minutes cleaning out the one drawer in my desk where I keep personal things. I emptied the entire thing, found things I forgot I had, ditched most of it and reorganized the rest and put it away neatly. I also emptied 3 binders of outdated Department of Health materials (which I had in page protectors...so all papers came out, page protectors saved) and put the binders out in the office for others to use, freeing up space in my bookshelf. Honestly, I would like a day to really do some purging but alas, I am incredibly busy at work so it's going to happen in small bites where I can. I have a webinar scheduled for next week....always a good time to go through things that don't require much thought as I'm listening to the presentation.

I'm ready to do some spring cleaning! Alas, it will have to wait. Tomorrow I am taking the quilt to the home of a local friend who has a 9 year old daughter in hospice care. The child opted for one more round of chemo as she is excited for Easter and doesn't want to go to Heaven just yet.....

She wants to sign the quilt and so tomorrow I am taking the quilt to her home (along with an Easter card that Jeremiah made for her) and once it is signed, I am hand delivering it to the oncology department at Geisinger. They will keep it and gather more signatures and then send to a friend of mine who will quilt it. I will return it to Oncology in early May where the quilt will hang for the foreseeable future.

We have plans for the weekend too...can't wait for that but will tell you about it after it happens. :)

Happy Decluttering Friends!
