Is my hoarding the result of being too sentimental to let go of things? Is it because I’m a terrible procrastinator? Or am I just lazy? My Dad would tell you, if he was still around, that I’ve always been lazy. That word used to enrage me; I was so incensed that anyone would insult me with the L-word! I told Dr. Ima Shrink that I’m NOT lazy, I just don’t like to work very hard for very long. She just waited a beat…until I realized that I had just given a textbook definition for lazy. I haven’t cured my laziness, but after that day, the sting was gone from the word.

I blocked today, Sunday, off my calendar to spend the day on cleaning and projects. I slept in, threw dinner in the crockpot, read, played computer games and napped. Notice that nowhere did I say that I even showered and dressed. I was lazy today, very lazy.

However, as I was sitting here playing on the computer and fretting that it was so slow, despite it’s recent week in the shop, I just knew I had to clean it out. The computer. I’ve recently changed to a different e-mail provider and it let through the e-mails the last provider had been blocking. Over 38,000 e-mails were sitting in my in-box. I didn’t feel like I could just delete them without at least looking them over. Well, I just looked over who sent them and cleaned out about 37,500 of them. It took hours.

Then, because the Geek at the shop said I had a lot of photos, I bought a separate hard drive for them and I’m going to clean them out, too. I have to share a few with you first…

This is going to be harder than I thought. I may have to put it off for another day. So many sentimental memories…okay, I’m just being lazy.

Stay tuned…
