This week, I'm going to start the process of purging.  I'm going to go through my stuff and try to weed out what can be thrown away, recycled, or possibly set aside for donations.  If I have to move next month, then I won't be doing this at the last minute at a frantic pace and possibly making mistakes.  And if things end up working out, well...  I'll feel accomplished.

In the meantime, my mom has decided to start cleaning out the closet in what will be my bedroom in her basement.  It's a room we call "the café," because it's set up to be a little café.  It has a lunch counter, barstools, and a working jukebox (or at least the last time I tried it about 20 years ago, it worked).  She's basically using the same reasoning - the closet could use a good cleaning out and if I don't end up needing it, well... at least it's done.

In the meantime, I'm contemplating maybe holding a yard sale.  I know I won't gain a ton of money from it, but I could get rid of some stuff and get at least a little money from it.  But I really don't want to hold one by myself.  The idea of sitting outside by myself all day just kind of kills my soul.  So I'm going to ask some of my local friends and see if anyone would be interested in joining with me in this venture (local friends - pipe up!).  Also, local friends, quick straw poll - please comment on whether you'd be interested in dropping by to browse.

I also want to thank everyone for the support, wishes of good luck, and pleas of "NOOO, DON'T GO!" (even the ones that were from cats to Felix).


  1. I admire how you put on your big girl panties and are dealing with this really rough time.
    You ROCK

  2. I don't want Fe to go!

    I wish I wasn't working Sat nites....
