Time for Me Thursday

Happy Thursday, everyone! Is it as chilly there as it is here? The weather report is seriously calling for snow to be mixed in with the rain tomorrow! Ugh! I love Michigan, but I am so not ready for snow. I've been hoping that the dang rain would stop so I could get outside and cut back the rose bushes and all the other vegetation that has taken over the flower beds. They're in horrible shape. I swear the owner hasn't done a thing with them in years. Well, I can't control the weather so no use fretting over it. Instead, how about deciding what to do for ourselves today? What are we all going to do to make us happier campers?

As for me, I'm going to continue working on "The Wall." How is that doing something for me? Well, let me explain. Like a lot of people, I do not thrive in chaos. In fact, let's face it. Those of you who know me, know that ocd could be my middle name sometimes. When I'm surrounded by chaos and a lack of organization, my brain becomes chaos, etc etc. I actually swore I'd write my dissertation on this if I ever made it to that level of schooling. Anyway, now I'm rambling. So, basically, the more organized and clean my house is, the happier I am. Over the past couple of weeks, I've posted something like 6 listings on Freecycle and gotten rid of a bunch of stuff. I already have another small pile of stuff waiting to be listed. I just want to add a few more things to it. It's amazing what you find when you unpack boxes! Watching stuff that I don't need anymore, releasing it out of my home is setting me free. Every time I look out back and see that someone has picked something up, it's like a bit of weight off of my shoulders and who doesn't enjoy losing some weight? ;)

Ok, so that's what I'm doing today. What are all of you doing? Don't forget to sign my little linky thing below and/or leave a comment! By supporting each other, we support ourselves!

We are also still unpacking from our move. And recently have realized we just need to get rid of stuff. I try to look at it as, "if this was stolen, lost, broken, would I replace it" if the answer is no, then it really should go. It is hard !!!
