Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, February 26th, 2013.

Here we are at the second last day of this glorious February 2013.

We have had a great month both me and Alvin.

We basked in some awesome warm weather.

Enjoyed our walks.

As spring approaches followed by summer ….. we daydream of our long walks on dry sidewalks with no heavy coats.

Happy Spring ……


I was watching “Katie” last night and she had someone help with her “clutter” …. to get reorganized.

I am thinking that the majority of us are hoarders on some level.

While I was watching I looked around my living room and thought about the basement and my office upstairs.

My living room is definitely not filled with clutter.  I would say it is at a good place.

My kitchen is the same although I have a couple of drawers that tend to get away on me from time to time.

My bedroom and bathrooms are perfect … not overdone and the books have spots on shelves … nothing on the floors except the bed and dressers and the tub, toilet and vanity…..

Now the basement and the office …. might be considered cluttered but “semi-organized” clutter, you know what I mean?

In the office: books on the shelves (just likely too many of them – but I love my books); storage containers in the closet filled with an array of memorabilia.

It is those storage containers that frighten me ….. I think it is time to be ruthless …… GO FOR IT.

But then my inner little girl that likes to open up the card boxes and go through them from time to time ….. says “please, no.”

The basement has a story all of it’s own.  Two things down there that I cannot part with and they are: CHRISTMAS stuff and the baby collection of items for my grandchild.

Now the baby stuff I am only storing and it has it’s place so really it is not out of hand but the Christmas stuff …. and oh, I forgot the stuff that did not sell in the garage sale that I brought back into the house.

Bad girl.

Anyway you get the picture.

We all have our “issues” ….. and that’s okay.

We just have to keep working on them and we will reach “our” perfection when we are ready.

So have a great day …. please do not get too hard on yourself when you watch those shows that tell you that you have things to fix.



Special Hello: to all those keepers/collectors of stuff.


Always, Carol and Alvin
