Don't know what's been going on lately but I've been sleeping 5-6 hours and getting up. I don't have a problem with that as such but when one goes to bed at 10:00 one then gets up at 3:00 or 4:00. That's early enough that the spiders are still running around freely. I don't see spiders during the day much but they skitter around at night. Spiders aside, I have this great urge to buy paint......but I won't. Not til the quantity of stuff in the house levels out to an appropriate amount of stuff for the size of the house. I figure that to be oh........1250 sq. ft. divided by 5......250 sq ft each, divide by age of person......multiply by number of pets.....yeah, way less than we have. It amazes me how much stuff goes out of this house and there's still more. When Tom left he took 2-3 pick-up loads, I've always got a Goodwill box going, in the past year I've hauled 4-5 van loads off....and yet there's more. I keep thinking I must be getting to the end, I must. I pulled 4 large boxes of stuff out of the boys room a couple days ago......I have faith it will end.
I've heard that people in times of change or uncertainty start to hold onto stuff in case they need it, I've always gotten rid of stuff. If you give it away it always comes back when you need it....if you sell it you have to buy it back if you need it lol. Anyway, times of whatever I've always wanted to be unfettered by stuff. Almost there, yeah....almost there.......AND, once I am I can buy PAINT!!! Does anyone else think one exclamation point looks too feeble? or is that just me? Once the stuff is done I'm going to take everything off the walls and sit back and relax as if I were in Yoville or my little Sim house......I'm not nuts, it's early and I don't care. If I don't work today, I'll go through stuff and maybe clean up the side yard or pick blackberries.
Off to shower then start the round of kids awakenings........first day of school and all.
