I'm rambly today!
Spring cleaning this year
Sometime recently, I decided that this year's spring cleaning is all about "out with the old". I bought a plastic storage container from Target last weekend to pack up some things for storage in my parents' attic. I intend on getting at least one more to store some old clothes & things. I'm packing up things like: a sketchbook from high school, photos I've had on desks since middle school (of my family), some delicate glassware from my grandmother that is only for display, t-shirts and odds & ends that have been hiding away for a while, things I don't want to throw out due to sentimental value but have no place out on display, an outfit I made in college that I"m not sure I'll wear again but want to keep, my hs junior year prom dress (doesn't fit, would like to keep it in case I have a daughter someday). I even put away some books that I used to read a lot as a teen and don't want to anymore, but also don't want to get rid of them. Is that silly? I could downsize the book collection a lot of I stick with how often I've read those books in the past 4 yrs.
I want to buy another storage bin. I think I might get rid of some of my earrings, since I rarely change mine. I'll just keep some nice ones for when I occasionally dress up. Weddings are pretty much the only time I change them now. I might even store some of my old jewelry, since a lot of it is silly, but sentimental. I feel good about putting a lot of this stuff away. I feel like I'm putting aside some of my childhood, while not forgetting it.
I want to replace some of the wall art in the apartment. My poor Chat Noir poster is probably around 10 yrs old and terribly faded. Yeah, I fully intend on replacing it with a new copy . Someday, I'll have a frame for it, but I don't think I'll bother until we own our living space.
Gut - I had another mid-morning BM today, just like yesterday. I think I forgot my morning probiotic today. Oatmeal & prunes w/ breakfast, epsom salts @ night, probiotic with breakfast & dinner... This seems like a good combination for now! I have also been taking HCl with dinner & lunch, with no ill effects. The capsules are 600 or 650 mg. I might try upping the dose.
