I've found letting go of some things to be hard, but it's sooooooo nice to have some clearing going on too. I've been watching "Clean House" and I've learned some tips from them although I do find that they MAKE people get rid of some things that it would be "ok" to keep--such as pieces of NICER furniture. My house is nowhere near the houses they show on Clean House so I'm luckier there!!

Letting go is sometimes about more than letting go of things, it's also about letting go of some memories and some people. That's the really hard thing. There are some people I've needed to back away from for my own peace of mind and health. Not all things and people are good for you, just like anything that is edible is not always good for you. And of course, you don't have to give them up for good, just back away for a while and re-evaluate and then taste/see them in small but good quality ways. I let go of my "career" when I retired--and let go of a lot of people there, but I do see SOME of them occasionally. I've found a new wonderful career for myself now, that I love and cherish. So change IS good!! VIVA LA CHANGE!!!!!

Yikes, yikes and YIKES!!!!

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since I've blogged!! And I FORGOT how to log in also!! I had to really work at it to get logged on. Well, several things have been going on, I've been trying to declutter my house and get it clean--and I ALWAYS seem to fall short on that. I have no organization skills and I have too much stuff!! But I'm letting a lot of it go.

Also my daughter and I are going to the Mayo Clinic next month--we're excited about that. She's had some health "issues" all of her life and we've been trying to get to the bottom of them, and I think we'll get there now. It's been a powerful struggle to get to this point. We're going to try to make it a fun trip too, have some side trips planned--the Mall of America for starters. Then I'd like to go to Mankato to see the Betsy-Tacy houses. If you've not read the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace, you need to. They are great. I was also born in Minnesota so would like to make a "pilgrimage" to my birthplace. (should take a bronze marker and put it on the spot too!!!).

I'm also mulling over a "mission" in my mind. I need one. And i have a couple in mind. It might keep me out of the casino!! NOT!!!

Well, Have fun!!!
