Yawn....

One of the odder things that has come out of writing the morning pages is a desire for more organization of my 'space'...having to organize my time to actually do the pages seems to be spilling into other areas... Now... I really don't particularly care much for 'cleaning' per se but every so often a good re-arranging is definately theraputic...So...I spent most of yesterday starting to organize the California equivalent of an attic - the 'back' room, the 'junk' room, the 'I will put X in here because I can't figure out where else to put it' room...Filled up a 33 gallon Toter with recyclables and a good part of another 33 gallon Toter with trash...the room looks better but its far from being done...I have this almost anxious desire to attack it again tonight - the trash cans are freshly emptied - but I wore myself out yesterday and after working a full day (Mondays I drive 34 miles each way to the office)...I'm just plain bone-tired. So...hopefully I still will want to work on this project in a few days..though its usually best to catch those waves when they are fresh...I will be tucking myself in shortly..Good Night All!

I tackled my kitchen cabinets yesterday too! I didn't need to pack anything away but I did need to rearrange the smaller dishes to the front of the cabinet and that makes me smile when I open the doors.

It's interesting what the pages motivate us to do.

I think it has to do with focus, clearing out the extraneous. I swear while we do the physical discarding, we are doing a lot of mental discarding too. Feels good.

I'm also trying to organize and get rid of those things that I no longer need. Funny how quickly it multiplies (like rabbits)
