Jill, thank you so much for those encouraging words! I need to tell you though, I am finally decluttered in the living room!!!
You can not believe how awesome this feels! Everything I wanted to “save” until next time is in that one bedroom I told you about!!!
I had a friend of my kids come over and help me. I told her it would only take us 15-20 minutes and she said, “Yeah, sure Rose…” She had seen the house before when it looked like a tornado hit it and when she stepped into the house, the look on her face was priceless!
I wish I had gotten a picture of it! She said to me “Rose, what happened?!”
Jill, it took less than 15 minutes to place all that other stuff in the back bedroom. Of course my one cat had to supervise and hubby said, “Don’t throw away all of my VHS movies.” Little does he know we do not have a VHS player… They all died years ago.
I feel so good Jill! I can’t express what a weight off my shoulders this has been.
I wanted to throw out more but my son said, “The garbage men will surely egg our house!” I reminded him, “Son there is nooooo stopping me now! wait until next week!” He said, “Mom you’re scaring me with that evil look in your eyes!” hehehe. We had a good laugh over it.
Keep preaching about getting rid of the clutter in one’s life. They will thank you!
Trust me, if you were here, I would hug you! Talk to ya soon… I just wanted to share that info with you.
P.S. If you wish, please share this with everyone on the website. It might help someone else not feel so overwhelmed with the decluttering. Just taking baby steps is all is required.
Thank you so much for being there by my side. Even though you didn’t physically help me, you did help me mentally and emotionally. Even when I felt I couldn’t do it, you were there right by my side (by the posts on the website and the newsletters) encouraging me (and so many others). I can not thank you enough!
