Crap Out, Crap In

Well, I just got done with another marathon sort/purge/organize session in the Lego King's room.  I am so sick of crap let me tell you!!  Sick of my crap & sick of his crap, sick of other people's crap mixed in.  It's been about a month or so since I was last upstairs working in his room... maybe longer.... I'm old & I can't remember... Anyhow, I'm done.  At least I'm done going through stuff that sat in the corner of his room & on the shelf behind his bed.  I took 4 boxes directly down to the car to drop off at the Salvation Army tomorrow.

There are still boxes that need to be moved from his room to the craft room across the hall.  Some Most of the things I found were memorabilia from when I was a foreign exchange student, college & the kids baby stuff.  Lots of craft stuff went in the donate box. 

I'd love to be one of those people again who has all these great craft things that they do.  I used to sew alot, do counted cross stitch, crochet.  Do neat little things.... *sigh* .... not anymore, I just don't have time for that.  Wait, you know.... maybe that's not quite true... maybe it's because I choose to do other things, that at this time in my life, are more enjoyable to me.  Those things don't hold as much interest to me as they once did.  And that's ok.  Times change, people change, tastes change.  I didn't really feel bad about getting rid of those craft things, it just wasn't 'Woo Hoo!!  I'm tossin' this crap!!!'.... it was more like, 'Hmmmm, never got to that, oh well.'  And then I'd take that moment to think, truthfully, if I ever really would get to it and if the answer was 'no' then I put it in the box.

Hopefully, with the exodus of this crap, more crap won't come in.  I have been pretty picky about what comes in this past year.  I do have an excess of baskets & bins..... ummmmm, 'cause I go a little crazy when I see a great bargain & I'm sure I can use it somewhere.  Which is kinda what got me in trouble in the first place.  However, I KNOW that I WILL get rid of excess bins & baskets as I go along & find certain ones that don't work.  I've found that square or rectangular baskets work better for me, so I've been eliminating round or oval or heart shaped ones.  I like them, but they aren't functional for me in most places.

So I'm trying really hard to take 'crap out' & not let alot of 'crap in'.  How are you doin?

Bye!  Love you!  Have a good day, Dear!
