‘Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.’ ~William James

This past week I feel like I’ve been stuck in a rut.
Maybe it’s the heat…..
I go to work and when I get home all I want to do is sleep…..and eat…..
….but when I eat, it’s like there is nothing that really quite hits the spot…..
do you ever get that feeling?
I’ll have a few chips… that’s not it.
I’ll have a popsicle….no that’s not it.
Maybe some trail mix….no that’s not it.
I’ve been trying to read a few books, but can’t really seem to get into them either.
Then today it hit me…..I need to do some space clearing….generally when I feel “stuck”, if I can purge some of my “stuff” it leaves me feeling clearer.
So, I left work early and came home and organized my closet…..seriously folks….my closet has been a wreck since summer arrived….I still have a few winter things hanging out in there, when I’m in a hurry I’ll just pile my clean clothes on the shelf instead of hanging them up, throwing my flip-flops in and grabbing my tennis shoes to go to the gym……I’ve been a disorganized mess!

(Okay, I admit, I can become easily distracted by bright colors, feathers,
sequins and various sparkly things….this is not my closet, but wouldn’t it just
be the coolest if it was?! I’m talking clothes and ALL!)
I was able to find an entire sack of things to get rid of.
None of them were shoes!

(again, not my shoes, but WOW….love them all!)
Just putting this in here again, because I feel it needs repeating…..
okay, needs repeating to myself…..

  1. I feel clothing, closet space and shoe deprived all at once.

    Glad purging makes you feel better. I should try it :)

  3. I'm trying to purge my whole house and it's not going well. Maybe I should stick to the closets! LOL!

  4. Like Cathy,we are going room by room......keep, donate, discard. It's exhausting! But so worth it when we are finally done.

  5. Tammy,
    Actually, I can imagine you having a walk-in closet with a chandelier hanging in it. Goes with your personality and love of whimsey! I will send you a link to some realy neat paper chandeliers on etsy.


  6. This really hit a chord - I did a little purging this past week, getting a room ready for guests (small house, four incoming, two of whom are bouncy little boys, aged 4 & 5--adorable, but so busy!!) and you'd think I ran a marathon. Still didn't get our room finished, and the donate bag is fairly small, but it's growing... MUST do better... thanks for the inspiration. My heart skipped a beat or three when I saw the photos, with that OTT/OMG closet and those shoes!
