The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on September 27th, 2008 07:12 am (UTC)
I used to organize more when I had less stuff. Since having 2 kids and moving into a larger house, there's way more stuff than I'd like (god, the paperwork alone). But some of that is because my parents are packrats, who move the same junk from house-to-house (my Dad used to also have a moving-every-few-years problem). Knowing that my Dad refuses to get rid of paperback books he's never read and that he's had for at least 35 years... gah! Makes me want to purge through my library and donate stuff immediately.

And now that I've watched the political debate, I'm getting a headache and have much to do tomorrow, so I'm off to bed.
We watched it (my daughter's idea, though she and Christopher yacked through a lot of it). I was very pleased with how Obama came off, and that he was able to turn McCain's crack about "The most liberal voting record in the Senate" into "Most of the votes to which Senator McCain refers were in opposition to the wrong-headed policies of George Bush." \o/

My mom has one of those old barrels (about 3' with a steel lid) full of her clothes from the '60. She moved it from her parents' basement when they died to her basement. *sigh* The barrel kept mold and mildew out, but the clothes are still musty and just....ew.

I found a fantastic book by Karen Kingston, "Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui." She gives the reasons why we keep things, why we collect things, and how we can learn to let go of things. I started my big purge when I was going to move from my first apartment, but didn't find this book until I was already in my second place. She talks about inherited clutteritis, and how we can retroactively "help" our ancestors by purging our stuff today. She also talks about "mental clutter" and unfinished things/projects as clutter. I have a ton of both of those that I'm slowly working on fixing.

The one thing I didn't like about Obama was the constant talking over McCain, which to me, made him come off extremely rude. If I didn't know about McCain's policies, I would have said he did slightly better, but the petulant "naivete" comments began to grate on my nerves. And is it just me, or does McCain look like the walking dead with the incredibly pale face/makeup and the dark, deep inset beady eyes? *evil grin*
