It is almost over... I have about 10 people left who are waiting. I think I'm done with swaps now... I'll go in the odd one, but as for hosting, this one has scared me off for a while! LOL!!

Less stuff is always best! I've been doing this for years and I've seen such a HUGE difference in the last years... when I look back 10 years I think "how did we have so much STUFF!?!" Now I always think twice before buying anything!
No, not yet... :)

Thank-you, Joy! :) I used to stay up late to sew, now I never do unless I ABSOLUTELY have to, which is rare! Oh... I know the art/craft show weeks... good luck!!

I don't like clutter, so for me it's easy, but I do know what you mean... 'cause you don't want to get rid of something "just in case" right?

I don't love ebooks... *blush* Really like being able to hold and "savour" my books... lol!

1 closet instead of 2 is good! LOL!! If I don't wear it, I donate it. I don't think there will be much when I go through my things, probably a couple pairs of jeans since I've splurged on a few pairs in the last bit and need to pare down my shirts and pjs perhaps because I know there are some that I haven't worn in a while!
Hahaha!! Since I work at home and rarely dress up my wardrobe consists of designer jeans and ROOTS sweats. But i'm pretty simple with my wardrobe, I may just have to try & see. I don't really have all that much, but probably more jeans that they'd allow.. ;) lol!!

*** This week has been absolutely non-stop morning till night, and I'm hoping for a semi-relaxed weekend if at all possible. The kids want to do something fun this weekend, which is a really good idea as I could seriously use a break. I *almost* completely finished 2 NCW's today,... Continue reading

*** I am exhausted. Mentally, physically and emotionally. Things are insanely busy right now, and at the present moment there's not much I can do to combat that, so I'm simply going along with it, ticking things off my list one by one. I'm forever grateful to my friends who... Continue reading

*** This is *really* hard for someone who likes to know *exactly* what, why, where, when & who comes after the first step... I'm not a risk-taker, I like to err on the side of caution. I tend to choose the road more travelled, 'cause that's who I am. However,... Continue reading

I spent a few hours with my friend and her 2 little ones today... I sometimes forget how much work little ones are until I get that dose of reality again. LoL! Although they are the sweetest things, I'm quite content with mine being far more self sufficient than younger... Continue reading
