Packing Tape

I've been having something akin to blogger's writer's block. I just don't feel like I have much interesting to say lately. Maybe it's because all I can focus on is packing boxes, carrying on with school here and there, medicating sick littles, the next meal, the next laundry you ever feel like that? Minus the packing boxes part, I mean. :)

Our house is getting bare-er and bare-er (not a word?) and our move is seeming more real. I have been decluttering so much and letting go of things I don't really really love as well as lightening my load by breaking things here and there! Accidentally breaking, of course. I broke one of my favorite candle holders today, and my first thought was "one less thing to move." Seems the older I get, the less attached to 'stuff' I am. Or, maybe I'm just attached to different stuff (don't mess with my Kitchen Aid mixer or my phone!) I don't know. I think I'm just really tired at this point.

I was sick earlier in the week and what a reminder it was to thank God for my (normal) health! I found myself so discouraged to be struggling with weakness and aches for three days in a row. What an eye-opener about (a) how much I normally take my health for granted, and (b) what is really in my heart! The Lord has much work to do on me yet.

If you have any questions for me or thoughts to share, I'd love to hear them! I need some ideas for blogging as well as some good stimulating blog conversation!

Hope you all have a precious Lord's Day resting, being with God's people, and worshiping our Gracious Heavenly Father! Blessings to you.

Hey Candice! We have been thinking about you all and praying for your move/transition to a new "nest", which I am sure you will "feather" beautifully! We are doing much of the same decluttering here (although a move is not imminent), we are just trying to make room for another little blessing to arrive soon! It's always a struggle for me to decide what to keep (maybe I'll need that...) and what to throw. Maybe you could expound on your thought process as your are going through your stashes.

Love to all,

Oh I feel the same way about my Kitchen Aid and I am getting really attached to my phone... :)

I've been trying to declutter around here too. You're right. It seems that the older I get, the less I feel I need to collect "stuff." Thank goodness, I've never really been a packrat anyway!

Happy de-cluttering to you!
