“Two Writing Teachers” hosts a wonderful weekly writing challenge – Slice of Life Tuesday. It offers a chance to focus on a small slice of your life, and share it in a supportive writing community.
I was cleaning out the top shelf of my bedroom closet yesterday and I ended up covering the bed with bags and bags of stuff. I found many things that I had either forgotten I had or was looking for and couldn’t find.
-a bag of small notebooks that I had planned to give to one of my classes -now I am retired!
-a bag of Valentine heart candies to use for a math unit at school – from 2012 – now in composting
-old purses – several now to go to Goodwill
-stuffies – more for Goodwill
-a bag of Valentine gifts for my hubby – will have to wait til next Feb. 14th
Yes, it was good to reorganize the shelf, but it made me sad (and mad!) to think so many things got lost and were never used when they should have been.
I resolve to:
-keep that shelf tidy
-update my gift notebook and keep track of all the gifts I have, for all holidays, not just Christmas
-keep on with more decluttering! I have joined a 52 week reorganizing your house cahllenge (CHaOS) and am actually thinking it may work! (a right brain woman is running it!)
