Removing Clutter

Robert brought home the finished monitor stand today. So we moved the desk and rearranged some things. I'm already feeling like I can "breathe" again. It's amazing what a thorough cleaning will do for you mentally. I feel so much better. I can't wait to get the other pieces that Robert is going to make for me, and put it all together. He's going to work on the sliding keyboard drawer tomorrow. After that, he will start on a stand for my printer, scanner and tower. Then I'm going to have him make me a cubbyhole center to go on my desktop for all my office supplies to go in.

So today I threw away two, count them TWO, garbage bags of crochet patterns. The rest that I kept are now stored in a plastic container in the bottom of a closet. My next craft thing to tackle will be the rest of my yarn and thread. I will probably go ahead and purge most, if not all, of that.

I have an idea for a children's story! This is something that Angela and I discussed a day or so ago. I told her that well was dry. But today I was inspired by a *special* person in my life (whom I know would slap me if I gave her name away). I think I shall work on that a bit. Yes, I was just joking when we talked today and I said that would make a good story, but it won't leave me alone. :) Love ya girlie!!
