Seven Things Week 35

This week, finally, furniture could be moved around and the effects of the last 35 weeks are becoming evident. It's not more comfortable yet and it's taking a LOT longer than I imagined it would. So far I haven't felt the loss of any thing I've disposed of but this week's almost manic activity (ask the TSS and Happy Spider help-lines for confirmation on this) has slowed down knitting activity. I'm really looking forward to have a space I'm comfortable relaxing and creating in.

And most of the patterns scheduled for disposal have not left so are not counted yet. Hopefully next week.

Wow. That's a heck of an out list! You are making so much progress it's a wonder you don't feel like you're living in an empty box! I am spending more time asking myself, "do I need this or will it just take up space" before we bring anything into the house. As I put away the winter clothes, anything that did not get worn is going out. I am trying to slowly get used to the idea of doing with less but that is so un-American!

Flippin' 'eck!! Way to go!! I need to start this up again, my house is clutter city. It's amazing how you can get rid of so much stuff and not really feel like you made a dent though isn't it.

Well done Taph. Have you turned a corner now, and it feels you are getting somewhere.

Wow! What a great achievement this week. It's great you are keeping track of just how much stuff is going in and out.

(PS: I've been reading your blog lately via Google reader but not commenting as I can't access blogger domain websites at work - but they haven't blocked google reader [evil grin])

Hells bells, that's astonishing! Well done and have a bloody big glass of scotch to celebrate : )

Taph....you are one heck of an inspiration. You definitely lead the way when it comes to outs. I am in awe.
