So this happened:
The Family Place came and took away three bookcases, a night stand, a wooden writing desk and 40 glass plates. And it felt amazing. As they carted them away, I imagined them in a home where someone really needed them and would be grateful for them. And I felt good. And the sunroom was emptier.
I’m starting to see light at the end of this very long tunnel.
I offered three oriental rugs too, but since we have dogs they wouldn’t take them. Allergies or something of people who might take them. I was disappointed about the rugs, but super excited about the furniture.
I’m still working on finding a home for the rugs. They are beautiful and were outrageously expensive, but I’m kind of liking my bare wood floors. I suppose it’s possible I’ll change my mind as time goes on and want them back in the house. But I don’t think so.
Christmas Cards – Yeah, Not Happening
In this post, I said I was downsizing my Christmas card list and only sending them to close friends or family. Um, so yesterday I decided I just wasn’t going to send them at all. Because I hadn’t done anything to make them happen yet. So, I’m embracing the Year of No Christmas Card. Cross that off my to-do list. Wheeeeeeee!
