As I continue packing and getting ready to move, I am just amazed at all the stuff I have accumulated. I am truly trying to follow the rule that some wise person made...if you haven't used it in a year, you probably aren't going to, so find a new home for it. Of course, this doesn't apply to all my crafting supplies. I just KNOW that I really will get around to using all of this stuff. As for the extra dishes, pots and pans, cooking gadgets and such, I am doing a pretty good job. For almost every box that I take to Hot Springs, I donate one to charity or give to someone I know could use it. I am truly going to try to be alot more organized in this next phase of my life...even with my crafting. I am going to try not to let it overpower me as it sometimes does. I hope to finally get caught up on all the scrapbooks that are dancing around in my head as well. My friend, Lisa, is so very organized with her crafting...I hope to follow her example and know where everything is....I am sure that this will result in alot more completed projects!
As for all the clothes that I have kept thinking they would one day fit again, I have now realized that by that time, I wouldn't want to wear them again anyway...if that day comes, I will reward myself with new clothes.
I know that all my precious Jennifer memories will always be with me. I have no desire to part with them, because they bring me happiness. I love reading cards and letters from her and looking at gifts she gave me and other precious gifts I have been given in her memory. I will now have more room for the things that make me smile!!
