Life is funny. I have been thinking about life and what I want recently. We made a major decision this weekend not to buy this house we are in. We are going to downsize. I have decided that we don't want to have so much space. Space = more stuff, more money spent on filling the space, heating and cooling the space, cleaning the space. I want a more simple life. Don't get me wrong, I do like the nice things in life but it seems that we have gone into excess! As I look over the paper of new houses around the area, it seems like they are all 2300 square feet and bigger! It's hard to find a house under 2000 square feet. Isn't that insane??? So this weekend was spent, looking at possible new places to live. I also spent part of the weekend purging. My kids helped me. Every time I wanted to keep something, they said "What are you going to use that for?" and it helped me get rid of stuff. I ended up taking a truck (explorer size truck) load of stuff to Goodwill. I was going to try and sell stuff on eBay but then just decided that there are people in this world that need help and I am better off than alot of them, so I donated. I also threw out a ton of magazines! I am a hoarder of magazines. It was very tough for me to let go! But I did it. So now I shall be doing more purging because I am not moving the crap again! I am in search of a house that I can spend a LONG time in...that I can grow old in with my hubby. My goal is to do that with in the next year. Art took a backseat this past week and maybe even for the next week as I sort thru my life and STUFF to get down to what really matters to me and what I really want to live with. So that is where I have been.
And on a sad note, Jennifer's dad passed away today. Please say a prayer for her and her family. She will be out of the office for the rest of the week so I will be doing double duty. It will probably be a few days again before I post as it makes for very long days without her at work. She has a way of making me laugh and making the days seem shorter when she is there.
