My computer has been in the shop for a week! I’ve been lost without it! No internet, no cable…it’s like returning to the dark ages, you know, the 1970’s.

Today is Friday and I’m almost ready for my Saturday Stampin’ Up party. I was determined to go through all the junk in the living room and dining room, and I did fill a bag of garbage, a bag of recycling and a box of donations. But, in the end, I had to box up a lot of things and put them in the studio and the Queen bath to be sorted later. At least I didn’t reclutter (I’m sure that’s a word) the areas I previously decluttered. If I continue to maintain that hard line, eventually everything I can’t find a home for will be on the lawn. I’ll just slap tags on it all and call it a sale.

Ever since the Queen bedroom has been clean, I’ve wanted to rearrange the furniture in there, as if I didn’t have enough to do. So I tackled it this past week, and looking at the results brought to mind an incident from early in my career. I’m a Mechanical Designer in an engineering firm, and I was sent to a machine shop to check on a prototype being built for us. I looked at the prototype and told the machinist it looked lopsided. He measured it up and said, “You’re right, the right side is .002 inches thicker than the left side. Good eye.” No, wonky eye. There’s no way I saw a difference of .002 inches. That’s two THOUSANDTHS of an inch. And here’s how the bedroom looks because my wonky eye saw plenty of room for this furniture.

Plenty of room.

Plenty of room.

I see more furniture moving in my future.

Stay tuned…
