    Hi all! I've been mia for a couple weeks. It's been a roller coaster ride lately. Hopefully, things are getting more "normal". I haven't been very productive in the decluttering dept. I have started washing the inside doors, trying to do 1 a day. Every little bit helps!

    Been thinking about you my friend. {{{{ <3 Hugs <3 }}}} on the roller coaster ride(s) lately. Every little steps does count and when "life" gets in the way, we give it it's way and then proceeds as usual, knowing life, "Murphy's Law" can and does show up, when we least expect it to...so as we "roll with the punches", we get knocked down, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over again!

    LOVE you Snoo...tell Mr. Snoo I said "Hi"!!!! o:) <3 o:)

    Never a truer thing said. I was talking to someone the other day who said that just when you think life is going along its straight road, you get thrown a curve ball. The comment that struck me most was that he said, "It's not WHAT happens to you, it's HOW you deal with it that matters." And he's right. A good philosophy.

    Decluttering is very liberating but I only get rid of my own stuff. I leave my husband's stuff alone. I won't allow myself buy a new item of clothing unless I get rid of something already in my wardrobe. If I am throwing something out I say to myself "may all my bad luck go with you" and sometimes I say "I bless you with joy and release you from my life" . I still have lots of stuff, more books than I will ever read, more cds than I will ever listen to but not nearly as much stuff as I used to have and I am very happy with less clutter.

    Honey...BOOM! I super love what you've written here. Thank you so much for your MAJOR contribution to this thread. I say "MAJOR" contribution because I've NEVER thought to think, let alone "say" to the stuff I get rid of anything at all. Wow, again, I just love it and what you've contributed with help folk get rid of stuff a bit more easily. YAY YOU!!!!! <3 o:) <3

    I only get rid of my things also. If hubby gets inspired, that's wonderful. If something of his is in my way, (can't stay where it is) I ask him to find another place. It actually works better if I suggest a place.
