I’m looking around the house and wondering what more to get rid of. There are a lot of things that I don’t use that I don’t want to let go of, and that’s creating some difficulty for me. I want to get rid of things even faster, because I believe I will be relocating soon. However, as much as I hate the idea of moving everything, I also don’t want to get rid of it. Whether I use it or not. Tomorrow I’ll try again; there are still some clothes I should get rid of, some paperwork to shred, and some dishes to sell or give away. There is also some glass to recycle, there’s some used paint that needs to go to hazmat, and there are some curtains that I won’t use again. A few space heaters that aren’t energy efficient, and a few items that will just be thrown away due to condition. There are CDs I’ve sorted but haven’t weighed yet. And what about the three sewing machines–no four–that I don’t use, or the four colors of wedding envelopes that are completely useless to me?

And the chairs and the chests of drawers and the china… I think a goal of a ton was a little big, and I’m getting discouraged. Maybe I should aim for half a ton at first–I’ve already donated over 600 pounds, so 1000 shouldn’t be too difficult at all.

I’ve decided to count furniture in the weight. That will also help me make my goal.


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
