    Thanks, everybody.

    Today I spent hanging pictures, curtain rods, and adjusting the furniture to be "just right". I also took out several bookcases/cabinets already. Nerga breeding grounds.

    There is an unofficial swap spot next to the recycle dumpster in the garage where people leave things that are not needed but are perfectly usable. I got a nice area rug for my guest room there and I have dropped off a few things as well. Whenever I look again, my stuff has gotten adopted by a new home. It's a nice system.

    That's awesome.

    I agree about getting rid of storage solutions so that you don't collect things!

    It's school holidays, so we are setting up for a declutter. I decluttered the office that DS uses and it's *great* -- now he can use it more effectively and so can we!

    Now, we're working on getting the closet cleared out so that we can set up a room for DS. It's an interesting process. It involves a lot of letting go of things that I didn't even realize we'd collected! :P

    Yep, if you keep too many cabinets/closets/shelves, it is very easy to just put some nerga there meaning to sort it out sometime soon. It is out of the way for the moment and out of mind. Next thing you know it has dug in and grown roots and sprouted and multiplied.

    Congratulations, that is so wonderful! We have a common swap area like that in our apartment complex, I agree it's a pretty cool system.

    Yep, one person's junk is another person's treasure and the net amount of nerga in the world doesn't change.

    I am sleeping so well at my new place. It is surprisingly quiet for being in the middle of a major metropolitan area.

    Of course the fact that I've been exhausted from moving furniture might have something to do with it too.

    Today I have a lunch date at this pretty little restaurant in the middle of Balboa Park (San Diego's central big park where all the museum and the Zoo are). So the Wolf Cub and I are going to walk there. I figure I've been doing a lot of lifting heavy things the past few days so a day of long distance moving at a slow pace would probably be a nice change up.

    More about the lunch date later.

    first, that's cute, Joanie. I was thinking the same thing. . .

    second, i love living in NZ. i just ordered a gluten free cake for DH's birthday, and she asked "vegan or paleo?" and I go "paleo" and she goes "great." DH wanted a carrot cake for his birthday.

    oh, and my client baked 50 gluten-free ANZAC biscuits for tomorrow, too. so awesome!
