Somehow I got my dates mixed up, and thought Mercury was going into retrograde today, though I should have known my bestie, Zoe Moon, and THE best astrologer I have ever met EVER, would have sent up the smoke signals to let me know. So, working on that assumption, I decided to re-organize my office which has been in a total state of disarray since it was primarily being used to house my foster pups and boxes of papers, files, books, magazines, old batteries, power cords, cell phones – all waiting to be recycled, photographs waiting to be put in albums, business cards waiting to be scanned in, and office supplies I keep buying because I can’t find the ones I bought the last time I couldn’t find them.
Okay, I admit, I have a problem with throwing things out – probably because my dad was a depression baby and he saved everything for a rainy day – I learned to hang on to every thing cause you never know when I am going to need that little piece from the thing-a-ma-whatcha that I can’t find now, but I will some day.
I hate living like this, but I do and I don’t do anything about it until Mercury is in Retrograde, when I would then tear apart my drawers, my office, my garage and make some headway….but there was always that few boxes of stuff that I could never part with that has gone from move to move to move to room to garage to closet. You get the picture. I am not a hoarder by any means, but I just feel comfort knowing I have my stuff there for a rainy day. In fairness to myself, my back injury did not allow for any physical activity and I was able to hire a local handyman to handle some things for a while, but he can’t got through boxes and files, and I wasn’t able bodied enough to do it.
But my back isn’t getting better, but it’s not getting worse and the time has come to really empty out my nest, and let go of whatever it is that I am holding onto…to clean out my closets, garage, files and life of those things that I really don’t need anymore….
What don’t you need anymore and how are you going to handle it ???
Let’s talk about this tonight at 9pm ET/6pm PT on LifeAfterKidsTV!
