Cleaning & Making Life Clutter Free haha heehee

Isn't it amazing how much stuff we keep over the years. Mike and I have been going through "STUFF" for three days and haven't made a dent in it YET. Got to admit we have thrown a lot a way. Boy will the trash guy love us. Also have some things for a small yard sale.(I don't like yard sales) so this will be small,one day early birds. My motto is get in, getter done and have fun.

Will I'm a picture nut, I have tons to go through.....hoping this winter I can get them in some kind order,so my kids won't have to do it when I'm gone. Tues. Mike and I went through some. Well I ran on to write up that was in the paper (from 1978 me,my X and my kids) of the bad wreck we were in that almost cost me my life. ( I just thank God that no one else was hurt and that I'm still here) Had a hard time with that one. Cried so much Mike took me out for a ride to just get away from it all for awhile. OK , so Wed. we decided to go through all our movies and videos. We got to watching movies of the grand kids when they were a year old(twelve now),then one of my Mom and Uncles (Mom has been gone 15 yrs ,my Uncles just 3 & 5 yrs ago) You know the drill, I'd cry a while and then I'd laugh so hard my sides hurt.

Well long story short. In three day we didn't get that much done. It maybe Fall before we're done ,at the rate we're going. I think everything we pick up has some kind of memory. Even the pants that Mike has been keeping for so long. They have a 29" waist...........Let's get real here. In his dreams, MAYBE. Gotta say we may not accomplished much,but we sure had...........FUN!!!!! going down MEMORY lane. Ya know what,"all the good memories out weigh the bad, by TONS".

Hope all of you take a look back at your lives,friends, family etc. Throw out the bad.................and hang on to all the good. Just remember all the good God has given you or done in your lives. Sooooo glad we did.

Love & God bless,

Gloria, nice to see you posting!! WOW!! You know you are doing the same thing that I have been doing this week only we are HAVING a garage sale this SAturday!! I have cleaned out all of the closets now. I have no idea what I am going to do with some things when I need to leave this home one day!! I guess just throw. I am trying to scrapbook each and every picture and it takes so much!! But I keep trying. What memories we have made. But they are memories and these are just things...Sandy

don't feel stupid Glo! What you will do is just copy and paste my MEME (minus the pictures) and then put in YOUR response and it's a "3 word meme" so it's just 3 words per a response...they are kinda fun! :o]

that sounds like it was quite the trip down memory lane! Everytime we move I try to weed out all the things I've saved over the years, and I think I do a good job - until we move again and it starts all over! :)
