The past few weeks have been a whirlwind! We decided to move closer to Doug's work (Doug is my neat-o husband). We found a house and are moving...like soon!
I've been in de-cultter-get-loan-docs-together-de-clutter-get-tax-paperwork-together-de-clutter mode.
Did you see de-clutter in there?
Yes. It's true. We are becoming minimalists. Ok, that may be a stretch. But, we are definitely SIMPLIFYING!
When we moved into our current home over 5 years ago, I was so happy to be in an 1800 sq ft, 4 bedroom with a pool, single story home! I vowed never to have more than 2 toilets or stairs to clean EVER AGAIN.
So, when we found our new home, it was a bit tough to wrap my mind around 3 bedrooms in 1472 sq ft. With....get this...a carport. Yes, you read that right. A carport. A carport and a garage? Nope. Just a carport.
OK! I can do this. We are no longer going to be keep-the-box people. No sir. Those boxes are all going into the recycle bin.
3 bedrooms? Yep. The teenagers will be sharing a bedroom: something they haven't done since they were youngsters. One of them is less than thrilled with the upcoming arrangement (hint: the clean one), but is staying positive.
I've been de-cluttering like a madwoman. I am only keeping what I love or what I really need.
As a sewist, getting rid of fabric and WIP (Works In Progress) can be tough. But, I'm doing it.
Here is the first sewing project to go.
It is a chevron quilt top that I made and then didn't love. But, luckily, I found someone who does love it!
YAY! I can't wait to see the finished product.
We are embarking on a new and simpler adventure. I'll blog about it as I can. I'm interested in how this will all turn out. Hopefully you are, too.
Wish me luck!
