TIDDLY BITS
Last day of sluggishness wasn't very sluggy, though it got off to a sluggy start with a major sleep-in.

Asked Anders to take an hour out of his day to purge clothes in our closet and he went bananas and filled 8 big paper shopping bags and a giant black garbage bag with discards. Whoa!

Organized MY side of the closet too, clearing out some tops I never wear and putting things in order. I don't switch back and forth between winter and summer clothes, but I do keep the hanging items organized by type: sleeveless, short-sleeve, long-sleeve, sweaters. A little while ago I went back into the closet and turned the light on and just stood there, soaking up the satisfaction.

Have given up waiting to buy the mass paperback edition of Gabaldon's latest since it's taking FOREVER to come out in print, and borrowed the trade paperback from a friend. This necessitated re-reading the entire Outlander series again (no hardship) and I'm now in the middle of the one before and hoping I can get this one done quickly so I can start the other and STILL have time to read the book group book before the 20th. I can do it, I know I can!

Why do I have such a wary feeling about work? It's not a bad feeling exactly, but I'm not really looking forward to it. Could six years of crazy springs have finally pushed me over the edge?

I sorted and filed a year's worth of papers today, too. How long are you supposed to keep statements and such these days, anyway? I seem to remember it being 7 years...is that still the case? I want to start shredding and discarding. There can't be any real reason to hang on to all this paper, can there? It's not like we EVER go back through them or need them. Insurance and pension papers, okay, but bank statements? Salary statements?

The kids and I tried to go for a walk today. The sun was sort of lurking about, peeking out now and then and it's not been that cold for a couple of days...so much so that the snow on the roads has melted and frozen as solid ice. We gave up after half an hour and slid back.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, come to my house and do my closets? They are horrible, and I am AVOIDING them in a major way. I need you Liz! I know you will get all of your books done. How many have you read this year? Is it SIX? I haven't read any, but I have started two. I know that doesn't even make any sense does it? I haven't begun my walking yet. I am determined not to until I am healthy. I don't want this sickness to hang on because I am doing something that is good for me or anything :) Have a great day at work tomorrow. Back to the grind of routine, right?

Re: From Megsie

I would LOVE to come to your house and do closets with you! It's so much easier (and so much more fun!) to do it with someone!

And I haven't read that many books yet this year...1 and a half so far, but they are HUGE books, so that counts for something, right? :)

Aw, thanks for thinking of me:)

How could I not?! Hope your day was super!

I think your new nickname should be Sluggy!
Hey, every body is clearing out things. Holly has been going through cupboards, you are going through the closet. I have the urge to purge, but translating that into action has set up a whole messy domino effect in my room. I have much work to do on it tomorrow. Double Drat. I do like the way some bits of my room are turning out, sort of like you, I have been soaking up the satisfaction... as long as I don't look at the other bits. Yikes.
Another Outlander book? What is that, number kazillion? I guess it is near time for me to tackle them again.

It's An Echo in the Bone, which is number 7...it came out 18 months or more ago IN TRADE PAPERBACK. Freaking publishing company: cough up the mass market edition already!

I can't stop in the middle of organizing/purging something, it makes me crazy. :)

I need to purge mine also but since I have recently and am still keeping many smaller size things I am refusing too get rid of them until I get to my target weight. :)
As to Diana Gabaldon... I agree!!! the paperback version IS taking forever. I finally got the last one from the library. I am currently reading her side series on Lord John. Book two. Tom and Rachel got the three books for me for Christmas.
I already read the two you got me for this Christmas both in the last week while laid out with my back.
Love YA seester!

Unfortunately, I've learned to keep a couple of different sizes around. Swing up, swing down. *sigh*. Working on swinging down, though!

Did you like the books, didya didya huh??

They were disturbing. Thought provoking. I enjoyed the reading of them both but not the story lines. No I enjoyed the story lines as well. Just wow! life sucks at times thoughts. :)

I love organizing my closet - and yes, it is such satisfaction to go and sneak looks at it afterward!

-Heather

I like organizing ANY closet! :) Or just organizing in general! :D

Yayy! For organizing your closet in a jiffy! You inspire me!

The organizing bug has bit me in a major way this year, but I'm doing it in small blocks of time. Too many demands on my time to devote a whole day to it! But am gaining headway, slowly but surely.
