Since I went to all the trouble of coming up with Eight Eighths, I might as well use it!!
The non-series-named series on the 8 house so far:
De-Clutter, De-claim, De-cline
De-clutter, De-claim, De-cline, De-clusion
Still in the 8 house, which I will be for at least a year. Thank you lease!!
Working in my room, selfishly!!
Here’s where I started, in the first round.
(Pretty sure that 3rd pic, is not the original starting point for that corner, but ah well, not going back and searching more!)
And now I’m having lots of error codes, trying to upload more pix, so no more of that frustration, right now. Argghh!!
So now that I’m all aggravated, I need to switch activities to something more aggressive, like hand shredding tree branches, or something, to shed my anger!
But, will probably settle for de-cluttering the sink room counter.
Back in a bit. Go ahead, and get a snack. It might be awhile.
Which it was, and the sink project gave me great satisfaction! Then I even sat down, and uploaded those pix, and wrote the aforementioned post, D,D,D, De-clusion. Now why?? WHY did those pix load, but not the earlier ones??? Why hatest thou me, oh great technology master??
Okay, so I’m gonna try again to upload those pesky pix. Not holding my breath!!
First box I came to was papers. Papers that needed to have been shredded many moons ago!
Now I’m working on it!! Guess I finally got my Roun-tuit!!
- Let’s see if I really do??
A bit old.
Paperwork Reduction Act????
I got my disability in 2012.
Do you see that 2nd pic?? Paperwork Reduction Act?? Dear mercy!! How many more tons of trees gave their life BEFORE this Act???
Anyway, most of them were beginning in 2009, when I filed for my disability for the last time, ranging up to 2012, when I received it. Way too old, and irrelevant now! Buh, bye paper!! And good riddance to that ream of it!
Feels good to get rid of it!! Finally!
And yes, that is a Steak n Shake cup. What?? I had to keep hydrated!
Then I found some more trash, in the form of extraneous files.
5th graders were my nemesis!
My Baptism certificate, as an adult. Old classroom pix, while I was teaching. Those kids’ faces haunt me in my nightmares- I really don’t need the physical reminders!!
Yay!! An utility bill that was a credit!! But did I really need to keep it to remember it??
An utility bill, with a credit on it!! Woo hoo!!! And monthly recaps of my prescriptions, from 2 years ago. I think it’s safe to shed them now!!
Yeah, that’s me, 30 something years, and over a hundred pounds ago. That girl’s gone.
Modeling head shot cards, no longer needed. I did get 1 modeling gig, a TV commercial!! It was for a V-loop, circle antenna. It played so often on the local channel, that one of my cousins called me up, and said “I’m sick of seeing your face on my TV!” I hadn’t even been aware it was playing yet!! Thanks for the heads up, cuz! And I still have the VHS somewhere, I think. Wanna come over for a private screening, and some popcorn?? (Absolutely no etchings involved!)
Even some real physical trash:
Trash!! Woo hoo!! No, yo may not comment about the empty brownie box.
Broken bin, staple puller- that I have not used even once in the 9 years since I last taught, extra mug. Those ink stains- who has time to clean?? My mom, apparently! She rescued it from the trash. Once a
hoarder (better stop now, if I want to stay alive. Sometimes Sis shows her my posts!!)
Trash!! Woo hoo!! No, you may not comment about the empty brownie box.
So, ends my first room purge, in the eighth house, of the rising sun. Oh wait, that doesn’t sound quite right….
