Actually I lie, I started a couple of days ago. And I can’t promise a post a day about decluttering. I can’t even promise to declutter every day because Web of Angels will be out in 2 months and there are guest blogs and interviews in the works with, I hope, more to come. I also have new novels on the go, books to read, and, of course, my own family–and there has to be time for skating, not to mention that I want to start swimming, sewing, and knitting again.
Oh, and my children want to re-paint the mural in our hallway, so we are prepping the wall today, giving it a base coat of white. I’m thinking of painting a dragon in my section.
You see my problem folks. I need more than 24 hours in a day.
However, I recently spent time with someone I love who is a hoarder. It gave me the willies. And even though no one in my house is hoarding, we have the North American problem of too much stuff. Our small old house is crying out to be relieved of it. The dear thing is doing its best for a family of 4 with 2 home offices, one of which belongs to an academic who teaches everything from soup to nuts.
So this is my project for 2012. I hear that getting rid of clutter gives people more energy and a sense of mental spaciousness, too. I’ll let you know how it goes.
I don’t promise a post a day, but here are a couple of pictures to start.
