Here’s what I pretty much didn’t do: Work on my book. Workout. Run. Take care of my health. Iron. (OK, so I never iron.) Write this blog.
Well, I’m hereby declaring a new era, the Era of Productivity. (You down with EOP? Yeah, you know me.) I’m currently reading a book I spotted in the bookstore, Throw Away Fifty Things. After just the first chapter I went through my bedroom with 5 giant plastic bags, one labeled DONATE, one labeled SHOES (to donate to Soles4Souls), one labeled WEDDING DRESSES (candidates that didn’t make the grade, aisle-wise) and two labeled SELL.
I’m happy to report that already I’ve divested myself of some of my vast vintage clothing holdings. I have bartered about $600 worth of gorgeous frocks for $600 in hairdo credit with the gorgeous Michelle of Pimps & Pin-ups. While I didn’t bring in cash now, I can rest assured of having roots-free unnaturally red hair through March at least.
The bigger goal though transcends de-cluttering my stuff. It’s about de-cluttering my life, which includes jettisoning bad habits and focusing on what’s important, or at least not unimportant. I went to the gym for the first time in a long while this morning (yay!) and I am writing this here blog entry.
Hey, it’s a start.
