Today I spent six hours up in my multi-purpose room which combines a guest bedroom, family TV room, my dressing room and the cat's room. It was ugly and I almost gave up before I started. But with the vision of Carla's super cute wallet dangling in front of my eyes I persevered. I filled 2 garbage bags with well...garbage...and another 3 garbage bags with clothing donations, a bag full of shoes (which are really hard for me to part with BTW), a large comforter we no longer use plus a box of other donations PLUS 2 large bags of coat hangers. Just wait til you see the photos! Possibly tomorrow, if not then Saturday for sure. So I've surpassed by far the 29 donated/purged items required for the challenge!
Right now I need a break. I didn't even eat lunch! I was up there for SIX, 6 hours with just coffee to sustain me. (Don't worry - I had breakfast earlier and since I've come down I've eaten again. I tried on several pairs of pants and am happy to report that I now fit into a few more pairs so that helps out my wardrobe a great deal!
The bad news is I moved things, lifted things, carried heavy bags down the stairs and out to the garbage and my lower back is aching. Not sure if I'll bike tonight. I'm trying to do every other day on the bike and pedaled 20km last night. Only 360km til I get to Philadelphia so sure hope Judy gets back online soon!
So that's my news for today - it was an easy peasy NO spend day as I didn't leave the house except to get my recycle bins. It's exam week and today is exam review day and since my students don't write exams they didn't have to be at school today and neither did I! So I put my time to good use, you know, making hay while the sun shines.
I'm thinking on Saturday I will attack the "dreaded challenge" which for me is the linen closet - I'm scared of that monster!
