Busy Day

Saturday was a busy day for me. As l said before l was helping a friend move into his house.  He built the house, actually tore down the original and built a much bigger and fancier house in it's footprint.  It took him two years.  Of course during that time he worked full-time at a demanding job, but every other waking hour was spent on that house.

He had a container full of stuff he hasn't seen in two years.  My thoughts you really need it?  Does any of us need all the stuff we accumulate over the years.

Of course, it's not fair for me to impose my beliefs on any one, especially since l have gone through the purging stage, and feel very free because of it.

I'm just glad it wasn't my stuff.  I'm glad that l have already gone through the purging stage.

And because l have gone through that stage it is eye opening to walk through any store, be it a Wal-Mart, or Ikea, or any really, and see all the products for sale.  Better this year then the last, a new colour, an added feature, it really is over whelming.  I am not tempted to buy any of it, l really don't have anywhere to put it if l did feel the need to buy it.


  1. I feel the same way and I'm not even mobile yet. Except I do have that one box of mementos I've been carrying around forever. And though I'll never use that stuff, it's still cool to look through at times.

  2. Ditto on what both of you said. I have walked into Walmart and just go straight to what I need. Home Goods is the store of the past.
