Last night Special Man Friend made two trips to the dump, purging about 1400 pounds of STUFF. It’s amazing and a little unsettling how much stuff we accumulate over time. I have spent the past few weeks trying to give away everything I can, but I still have a bunch to send for donation. This morning our friend Jeremy came with a big trailer and we did another giant haul.
I’m appalled at how many Things we discarded. Things I couldn’t give away, like fully functioning televisions. Older models, that nobody wants. And they really aren’t that old! It was a date night turned work date, and I’m grateful for SMF’s willingness to help. I got snippy with him, he told me right away after a little return snark, that I had hurt his feelings, and I apologized. I have such a hard time with apologies, but it’s on my radar as something to work on.
It’s twelve minutes to midnight. This is day four of my ten day Just Write project. I do not feel inspired. I feel tired. So I am going to bed now. xoxo
