Summer has officially started: everything is covered in a yellowy-green dusty pollen and I found a tick in my hair today. BOO!
And since today is Monday, even though its Tuesday, its time comment on the decluttering. (Which, incidentally, has taken a back seat to de-pollinating) Focusing on the living room this week:
May 18: I had finished a book and put it in the donation bag.
May 19: After going through the storage area in my parent's house, I have a bag of hats in the living room. (I know...a bag of hats is not normal. I never claimed to be) But I pulled a hat out that I will never wear and put that in a different donation bag.
May 20: I went through one of the baskets under the coffee table and threw away a bumper sticker I had received for making a donation to some cause. I will never put this bumper sticker on my car. I will, however, put it in the trash. Today.
May 21: Went through the magazine basket and pulled out three to bring to the gym.
May 22: I had a pile of continuing education brochures I received in the mail. I put them in my work bag to post on the cont. ed bulletin board.
May 23: I moved some notebooks from the coffee table to more appropriate place -- the bedside table, which now is roomier after taking care of the bedroom last week. And then, since moving things seems like CHEATING, I took a box of chocolates I had received as a gift and brought them to a birthday party as a little treat.
May 24: I went through the video tape/ DVD basket and took out an exercise video for a charity sale somebody at work is organizing.
The living room, in its new configuration, looks neat and tidy. On to the office area next week!
