I do believe that all my decluttering--
hoeing out--
getting rid of--
is done for now--
though I do still have boxes of rummage sale stuff--
but my mind is tired--
so that will wait for awhile--

So now what????????????
I suppose I could go shopping--??
but for what????
I could just 'chill' out???
but--that is not really me--
I keep going for the most part--
even when my body is 'screaming at me to stop--slow down"!!

maybe I will just have to get back to some stitching--
I did find the sewing machine today and got that area all cleaned up and ready to sew????
gotta think on this for awhile!!!

done with the cleaning and sorting--
in fact--
I have lots and lots to do--
and some really tough decisions to make--
and some need to made by this week end!!!!
When thinking/planning to move out of state and so far away--
what does one keep and move--
or does one kinda sell everything and start over in the new place????
none of furniture is new--
except the bed--and that now is over 4 years old--
((((but was an expensive one when bought--!!)))
and where I am moving in FL there is a second hand shop/thrift store
on every corner--
and it is very expensive to rent a U-haul and nights stays in motels--
food, gas to move it down there--
it all 'boggles' my poor overworked brain--

I have Sherman coming Saturday morning for some of the furniture--
especially the large wood old cabinet--
Remember Sherman--he is the one I bought alot of this furniture from!!!!

I do remember--
for me --
it was to spring clean and do some rearranging---
reorganizing, decluttering--on and on--

I did start it on time--
my finish date was for the end of the month--
here it is now April 17th and I am--
working on it--
I did have a 'rest' time--
for nearly a month--
but this week have gotten back into the race--

For the month of February my challenge was to send out--
a card in the mail every day--
I sent out '28' cards during the month--
and I had 'fun' doing it--
I used to go through at least 20 stamps a month--
Then I got into emails and email cards and that came to a big stop--
until this past month--
and I realized how much enjoyment I got out of sending--
So my hope is that I will continue to send out a few letters and cards each month,
from now on--besides, someone has to keep the Postal services in jobs!!!

At least I found out --
I am--
and I did not know it!!!
I had a plan--
to save some money--
and to do so-
I decided to cut down on the TV and Internet and phone--
because we all know that money does not--
grow on trees--
even if we would like to believe it does--
and I wanted to save up for a -

so over a week ago, I called the cable company and downgraded--
and changed phone companies--
that all lasted--a week--
and then I decided it was 'worth' the extra money to have the faster speed on the Internet--
to have caller ID on the phone ( and a clearer phone line)
and more TV channels--was really 'sad' missing so much NASCAR--
I made the call back to the cable company yesterday--
and 'upgraded' to a larger package--
the good news is that will not cost me nearly as much as I thought--
but I will be paying more than I was a month ago--
but then this package has 150 more channels on the tv than I had--
so I can watch the racing now--
so this is my story and I am sticking to it--
I have discovered that once one gets 'used' to some of the new convinces of life--
it is really hard to go back to the old ways--

Have you tried to cut something out or downgrade something to save some money???
Did it work out for you????

I am  'happy'  to say that I am really keeping up with this months challenge!!
and I am keeping a list--of course--
of who I am sending a card to each day--
and I have about '6' that will go out of the country--
those are addressed and will have to go out all in the same day--
hopefully, Monday--
as I have to go to the post office for those,
 and have a couple small packages that need to go out too--
so hopefully the weather won't be bad--
though I heard today that we are to get a foot of snow Sunday and Monday--
Well--time to go and decide on who I will send a card to tomorrow and to get it ready for the mail box!!!
Smiles and have a great week end--
