404 File Not Found

It has been a good year for me, mostly and so far. I'm healthy and closer to sane than not. My agoraphobia and the hermit tendencies are acting up. I hate to leave home and I don't want to interact with anyone in the flesh. But I am not depressed or wondering why the fuck life is worth living.

I have been reading a variety of Frugal, Cleaning, and Green websites. Because of that, I am on another clutter busting binge. Four trash bags have gone to Goodwill/Salvation Army.* Today, for the first time in at least 3 years, I cleaned the inside of the fridgidaire. It was grimy and icky, and the crisper area was the worst. So I spent an hour cleaning and tossing and now I feel so much better. I think this is all a control issue. I can control the condition of the fridge even if I can't control things in my life or the world.

*Yes, I could try to sell the stuff but I feel better about just giving it all away. And it is easier.

I am also getting that pair of socks done. One afterthought heel to go. Still have not blocked the purple shawl.

Bunny Pictures!

Two Amy babies.

Baby Harriet.

A wonderful thrift store find for Sweetie.

I always donate instead of sell because otherwise the stuff will be here for eleventy billion years while it waits for me to get a yard sale together.

Isn't it a good feeling, to get one's living space under control? Not that I've felt that way in a while... Great bunny pics, too!

LOL--when my life is at its worst, my dresser drawers and closet are their cleanest. Go figure!

It is a control issue. Some people do it with food, i.e. anorexia (NEVER going to be a problem for me!!) but some of us do it with our "internal" stuff.
