Summers Officially Over

September 30th, 2009 at 12:08 pm

Well, its true, Summers officially over. Know how I can tell? I took the window air conditioner out last night. I don't think that we used it more than 5 or 6 nights thru the whole Summer anyway, its been an unusually cool and rainy Summer in Michigan. I started putting some of the laundry in the dryer again. The last few loads don't have enough time to dry anymore, so the electric bill will be going up a little. I am siiting in the sewing/computer room looking around for something that I can throw/give away to clear out some of the clutter, and not having much luck. I pronised myself that I would try to find 2 things every day to relocate, hopefully out of the house. I have dabbled with the flylady on occasion. But, unless I empty the wastebasket, and relocate a couple of things upstairs, I'm pretty much at the saturation point. I need less stuff or more house, and I don't want more house. Hubby laughs at me. When we pass beautifull, brand new, big as a barn houses, all I can think of is "who is going to clean them?" Not me thanks!

    I'm feeling the loss of summer too. I'm not ready for fall/winter yet! lol.

    I like the idea of finding just 2 things to relocate. I want to declutter, but its hard to tackle at times.

    We are watching the leaves change and the chestnuts drop as it leads into Fall over here, as well, and I like it a lot. Living in another country has made me really appreciate living "smaller." When we come back to the States I don't want a humongous house... I can do without the additional cleaning, higher costs and insurance, and all of that. A reasonable place with a nice yard for my kids to play in will do just fine, thanks!
