Well for all of you that are currently stuck in your rut---I'm down in the French Quarter---well that is the Ruston version of the French Quarter. My friend Sam's small group came and moved all my furniture and heavy things Friday night after I had spent the week moving-1429 boxes of "Stuff". After having a garage sale and hauling truck loads of stuff off---I still have LOTS! I know those sweet men were relieved that I had moved all the boxes--especially after they told the story of the last woman they moved who had not packed one box when they arrived to move her. They told the story of throwing clothes on a flat bed trailer at the end and driving them to the new house. NOW I don't know about you but as for me---I don't really care to have my underwear blowing in the wind for all to see as a team of men drive them across town. Thankfully I have only moved about a mile---but STILL! The way to impress your new neighbors is to NOT have your underwear strewn all over the neighborhood!
I have decided to turn myself in to the reality show "Hoarders". I definitely quality. After selling, giving away, and junking TONS of stuff--well 40 years of accumulation---I still have a house crammed full. I have begun analyzing just what I do have. Now WHY in the world would I need 200 glasses of various sizes and shapes. I am currently having a soda and I don't believe I can drink out of more than one glass at a time. And that rice cooker---why I did a perfectly good job of cooking rice on top of the stove for most of may life--WHY did I think I needed a rice cooker-which by the way I very seldom ever use. The crock pot---when is the last time I used that crock? How many towels do I need to dry off and do I EVER use more than one rag at a time to dust. YES----"Hoarders Anonymous" here I come! BUT I DRAW THE LINE AT THE ICE CREAM MAKER---Blue Bell may be good-but there's just nothing like homemade --that I make about every 5 years!
SO I have vowed to clean out some more----"But I will think about that tomorrow!" I have made a very important decision----the next move will be in the hearse!
