I need a day off but won’t get it for a while. I need to plan a day without opening up my laptop, without checking my email, without the need to answer the phone. Yes, I need the personal downtime to relax. But more importantly, I need to get my house de-cluttered and cleaned.
Its not a matter of cleaning the bathtub or doing the laundry.
Its a matter of some piles that keep getting deeper that if I don’t get to them, I fear we will lose the dogs under them.
I have a pile near my sitting spot that is taller than my iced tea glass.
I have a pile near the phone and backdoor that is tall enough to lose a grocery sack.
If you don’t see me for a while, you will know I am either de-cluttering the piles of my life or have been lost beneath them.
