Just for me

I took an extra long weekend with having Friday and Monday off as well as Saturday and Sunday. I gave myself an extended weekend for a variety of reasons: I needed to get stuff done I don’t have time for in my spare time; I wanted to do some de-cluttering on our storage unit and […]


Tackling stairs and storage unit at once

I am taking an extra long weekend for myself and just to get some stuff done. I went to our storage unit yesterday to continue with my de-cluttering project. When I first arrived it appeared worse than I thought. But once I started working on it I realized it really wasn’t that bad. For some […]


Recycle, donate, dilate

This is gonna be a smorgasbord of a post: a little health care with some de-cluttering  and recycling and donating thrown in. Yesterday I had an eye appointment. I have worn glasses since I was 4. So going to the eye doctor has always been important. I have been wearing contacts for about four years […]


Gettin’ my shredding done

In my massive de-cluttering project a big part of it is the shredding. Ugh, oh, the shredding. The shredder I had before was old and tired. And the shredding was very slow going. So on Thursday night I headed to Office Depot and bought a new shredder. I was willing to pay 100 bucks for […]


Dreading shredding? Uh, YES!

Today the dreaded shredding started. I have piles and piles of paperwork that needs shredding. It appears to be never ending. Some of the shredding is from the de-clutter project and some of it is just the usual paperwork I need to shred, like old receipts and credit card applications and old bills, etc. The […]

(I also told my readers what I do to take care of myself and love myself. Stephanie mentioned that she likes to take alone […]


Dancing off those calories

This has been a great long weekend. I took Friday off, giving myself a 4-day weekend instead of a three. Sweet! Friday morning I had a dentist appointment and then took the car in for maintenance. After that the de-cluttering of the spare room/office began. I have worked on this room every day since Friday. […]


Happy feet … walking

I decided to take today off and have a four-day weekend. I accomplished a lot today. I had a dentist appointment this morning. Then the car had scheduled maintenance. And I started the daunting task of de-cluttering the spare room/office/dumping room. I took the car in a little after 9. The dealership offers courtesy shuttle […]


Showing the love … to me

Today is Valentine’s Day. I find the holiday silly and pretty much pointless. If you are single, you feel bad that you are. If you are in a relationship, you feel pressure. Curt and I don’t give gifts or cards. If we can, we do go out to dinner and eat delicious sushi. Last night […]


Slurping green

I survived Day 2 of my cleanse. But I was only substituting one meal with a one green smoothie today and yesterday. Tomorrow will be the real test: three green smoothies=three meals. If all goes as planned I will do that for the next five days. We’ll see how it goes. My friend Karen asked […]
