I've been busy... I'm not taking the Christmas stuff down until the 4th but I have been going through drawers and closets. I've got a carload to drop off at the Salvation Army today.
I've been watching a show called "Hoarders" when I'm on the eliptical at the gym. My friend that killed herself last year was a hoarder. The problem is so much more complicated than someone being lazy. Lisa spent a lot of time shopping and stockpiling things. She had plans for everything she bought but could never seem to get from the planning to the doing. I helped her get her house in order but I know she went back to the hoarding and the squalor.
I have never lived anywhere as long as I have lived in this house. I think I've got wanderlust in my blood. On the one hand I really envy those that live in the same area all their lives and have deep roots. On the other... how the heck do you keep everything organized and under control? When you move every couple of years you are forced to deal with all the junk you accumulate. We still have a large number of boxes that we've just shifted from location to location... I can't imagine what we'd have otherwise.
Do y'all do a New Year's purge of your house?
