Today is the sixth day that I've written in/on this blog. I want to write six days a week, taking Sunday off. So far, so good. And I'm really enjoying it.
The thing about a blog is (and yes to my brother, if I can come up with a different word for blog, I will - he hates "blog") that it's for the readers too. It shouldn't just be me navel-gazing. After all, I don't think my navel is more exciting than anyone else's. Not that I've checked. But there are no interesting piercings or tattoos or anything.
So, I will write and see where the topics go. I hope that they are relevant to others in some way. Maybe you will relate, maybe you will feel connected, maybe you will smile. Maybe you just won't feel alone.
Today I am still feeling overwhelmed by too much stuff in the house. A trip will be made to Goodwill and some snowpants are up for grabs by some mothers I know who have little boys. Why we have 3 pairs of snowpants in pretty much the same size is beyond the scope of this entry. Of course, in going through some things yesterday for possible decluttering, I found some books that I realized again I really do want to read. So even though some books will be leaving, I feel like I have gained some new books. I better make sure that I do read them though.
The work of Gretchen Rubin is one source from which I am finding inspiration right now. She wrote The Happiness Project, which I really enjoyed, and has a Facebook page and a website. I find her ideas really helpful and she is sharing them beyond the book. Her blog (sorry bro') or website or whatever you want to call it is at www.happiness-project.com. Last evening she wrote about clearing surfaces. It was good.
By Monday morning, I hope that I have more surfaces in this house clear. I hope that everyone else has a wonderful weekend and maybe does things that are even more exciting than tidying up.
