Well, I read your blog and then decided to go through a box of books I had packed up to bring upstate. Mainly because I had no room for them here.
I realized that many of these books I will never read or refer to again. Several were gifts from my sister Eileen who may enjoy them herself or want to "re-gift" them, so I made a pile for "return to Eileen".
Several are novels I will never read again (not written by a close personal friend) so I made a pile for the "friends of the library" which Phil will take with him to work today.
A few are reference books on gardening so those I will keep. There are even a couple I've been meaning to read and still haven't gotten to, so they will remain here.
Phil is inspired to do the same and make some room on his bookshelves for me! Linda L.
I always say to myself, "If I moved would I take it?" I have moved many times. I remember the moving man saying to me as I stood frozen over an article during the move to Germany, "They have garbage there, too". It helped me move on with my life. Donna L.
I've been forced into going through things this week . Adorable espresso cups -- except that I don't have an espresso maker. The cups may (?) actually go out tomorrow. Anne H.
I have been trying to remember all of the ideas you described and have been steadily working away in the background. Must admit that I was more than a little dismayed at the slow progress I seemed to be making.
And then today you provided the answer I needed: "Little Things Mean a Lot". At the moment I am working on organizing and shrinking my supply of slide paraphernalia, projectors, slide trays, lighted sorting tray, preview box, and so on. Sunday was the day I had chosen to do this - whatever made me think that this could be tackled in a single afternoon? So, your blog today gave me the pat on the back I needed for discarding at least three boxes of slides, emptying and sorting 6 carousels, and finding out how to get what I wish to keep onto DVDs.
