Calling Earth ...

Yes, I sort of disappeared from the surface of the earth. Well, more like buried under the rubble at home. Those nagging tasks long overdue since we moved in 3 months ago!

In the last two weeks, I have:
- lined the remaining kitchen shelves (overdue for 2 months)
- packed 8 bags of baby things to return or pay forward
- purged 3 baskets and 2 shelves worth of stuff

Just like the difficulty of losing the last five pounds in a diet, purging the last few boxes was a huge challenge. So I put my own wisdom to practice (What you cannot tidy, you hide) and rearranged some shelves strategically to hide a jumble of plastic stools, bags, boxes and knick-knacks.

I still have a storeroom packed to the gills. But nothing a huge picture over the window and a closed door cannot hide.
