That's how I sound to myself. Just like the teacher in the Charlie Brown shows.....blah, blah blah.....
It's definitely not a good title to catch a persons attention but....I'm kinda of sick of myself, going on and on and constantly changing my mind.
One day I'm all about lusting after a new house, which is really ridiculous since I can't afford a new home. But I will scroll through the design/decor blogs and dream. Or I'll get on a local realty company web page and search through the listing and peek at the insides of homes that would be the answer to my prayers.
If only I had an extra room. Or a garage. Just a little bit more space and I would be happy. Then I would have more room for my STUFF.
Then there are days when I think maybe I should just rent a storage unit. I could have all my stuff in nice labeled containers and be so organized.
Then other days I will happen across some website like Tumbleweed http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/houses/ and think, Ahhhh.
I went to her blog and I LOVE IT! I am now her newest Follower!http://asimplelifeafloat.blogspot.com/
Now if she could live and thrive in such a small space, what is my problem?! OK, yes. I have several more pets but...I have almost 550 more feet! Three times what she has! Of course all my friends and family find it had to believe that I 'm living in such small quarters as it is but....how much space do I really need?
So what's the problem? It's ME. If my Dad was still around, he'd tell me to quit whining about it and do something about it!
So why do I have SO much stuff?
Well, I'm always hunting for things. To recycle, or sell or use in an art project. So my basement is full of "vintage" items and my spare room is so full of art projects that I can't squeeze in there to do any of them! I have bought enough art SUPPLIES that I could be snowed in for months and not run out. All this stuff has become suffocating. I spend my time moving it around and organizing it and THINKING about what I'm going to do with it and then I get so overwhelmed that I go outside and work in the garden or get on the computer to whine about it or get in the car and hunt for more STUFF.
So, I've said it before but I'm putting it out there in the blog world in an effort to force myself to actually do it.
I AM going to toss and pitch old clothes and drive them to Goodwill and NOT go inside.
I'm going to take photos of this vintage stuff and actually post it on Etsy. I'm going to get rid of things that will take too much time and energy to FIX. I have to stop thinking how much something cost me and just get rid of it. I have stop spending money on new STUFF. I have to clear out the spare room so that it can be my art room where I can actually create something. I need to stop STARTING, and start FINISHING things.
The computer, the blog world is the hardest. I just CAN'T give it up. I tried to spend less time last week and now I find all my FAV blogs with so many great posts to read! I've been waiting for the Practical Magic Blog Party and now it's here! I want to visit all those great posts.....
So, I realize that I can't accomplish this all in a weekend but I have to start somewhere.
So I'm off. Wish me luck with keeping my focus!
I will try to keep only what is beautiful or necessary as the saying goes! (I found that on Leslie's blog too!)
