I'm pretty convinced that I've always been a slob ... in all parts of my life. Now that I'm cleaning up my body, I'm also working on cleaning up my house. I have a 'room of crap' that would be a candidate for that horrible show Clean Sweep. I have a lot of stuff. Some of the stuff I bought thinking I would at some point need it. Some stuff, I have no idea why I have it. So, I'm doing a lot of donating. I'm thinking that the room of crap will be cleaned out by the end of the weekend. Starting tomorrow, I expect to make a daily visit to donate items to Goodwill. I'd briefly thought about selling things on Craig's List or Ebay, but that means the stuff would need to stay in my house until it sold. Bad idea. Getting rid of it is key.
I set a timer for an hour today and actually made a path through the room. I have piles around the house. One is in front of the washer and dryer. Currently, I can not see the washer and dryer. However, I will say that some of these clothing items were dumped in the room of crap because they didn't fit anymore. I only found a few things that will still be too small. Lots of other clothes went into the too big pile to be donated to Goodwill. I also have a giant Goodwill pile. Clothes, toys, a giant teddy bear won by a friend at a carnival, stuff still in its original packaging, etc. Last pile ... stuff that actually belongs in the room once it becomes an office next week. I set the alarm for another hour, and the floor is now completely clear. I put a bunch of stuff up on the furniture in the room, but the floor could be vacuumed now. Of course, I've barely tackled the closet. I do have a deadline. Now that the walls are painted in the other room, I am having new carpet installed in the room of crap, my bedroom, and the connecting hallway. I'm going to schedule the carpeter for two weeks from now.
It's been a good constructive day. Now, I'm off to go see Montez, my sexy trainer. He was on vacation last week, and my body has missed him!
