Early Bird!

Moving and cleaning is GOOD!

I made an executive decision today. I decided to move my bedroom to the front of the rectory. this means putting my ginormous king size bed into my larger room. I’ve been contemplating this move for awhile and today it took all the energy I had to start it going. I made significant progress but I also knew that I would have to do some serious cleaning. Namely with the vacuum and carpet cleaner. I finally got to see where all the cats have been throwing up and where that dog I fostered made pee-pee all over the place. I am so glad I bought soil resistant carpet with pets in mind. Nasty, nasty, nasty! But it will all be good and by this evening I should be done.

But this all started a couple of weeks ago when I watched an episode of Hoarders on TLC. Yikes! I began to look at all my “stuff” and realized, this stuff has got to go. My biggest hoard is clothing. I have four closets worth of clothes. And they are good clothes. Some of them are off only one size and I paid a lot of bucks for them. I can honestly say that my weight does float 10 to 15 pounds. But there are some things I haven’t worn in a few years and now its come to this…..get rid of it!

But there is other clutter in my life too. There is a reason for my madness although I know its not the best reason. Let’s be honest and say its an excuse. We all have some type of clutter in our lives. Whether it be spiritual, physical or emotional. We all need to clean our “house” from time to time. I invite you to reflect with me. What are the things that are cluttering up your life?
