it felt very weird leaving my job today, knowing I won’t go back there. It was a good job. I learned so much, and gained skills that will successfully transfer over to my next one.

But I’ll miss hearing Portuguese every day, I’ll miss the crazy stories, I’ll miss the camaraderie and various other things.

But, it’s also appropriate it’s raining, because rain usually puts me into a better mood.

Right now, though, I’d just like to sleep for a while.

NaBloPoMo Day 2: 2 days.

I have two days left on my current contract. I really love my job, and have learned so much that will be invaluable for the rest of my life.

But I do admit… I am tired. And having a couple days where I have nothing planned, nothing scheduled, and can just do whatever sounds rather heavenly right now.

Of course, so does sleeping past 7 am.

In all seriousness, I have a ton going on. Being a mom is time consuming. Working full time is time consuming. Yet, I’d like to try to combine the Minimalists game again this year with NaBloPoMo.

So we’ll see how that goes. I’m not going to get angry if I can’t do every day getting rid of things, at least at first. I have a lot going on, from transitioning out of an old job into transitioning into a new.

But, rather than try to write a novel, which I know is out of reach in my current mindset, I’ll do this instead.

So, #minimalists #1: Goodbye, worry.

Let’s just do this instead.

I cleaned out some old bill drawers today. There was a LOT of paper. 25 pages easy. probably 25 x 10 pages, actually. Lots, and lots, of paper.

But hey, drawer space! We like drawer space!

Also, I started my new job today. I am very tired.

I had a LOT of stuff to ship – sold stuff on eBay, bought stuff for friends, other friends bought things for me. Generally I am lazy and just get new packing material, or just use paper bags and pack it, but today I went for the real box of all the air packets and bubble wrap.

Managed to use up enough stuff between boxes I had here, air packets, bubble wrap, etc, to completely get rid of the giant box that I usually store shipping stuff in, and freed up approximately 2′ of room on my shelf! There were easily 21 things that went out today, so I think it counts. For me, at least. 🙂

Yeah. 19 socks…. and then some. But at least 19. I got nothin. I’m tired. 🙂

I started a new job today, and was catching up from doing a few days of taking care of Alex. So I don’t have much. But. SOCKS. IN THE BOX.

ooh it rhymes.

I got on a kick because YAY, I GOT A JOB HURRAY. And since I’ve been cleaning out things.. I realized if I have to conform to a dress code, I’m going to have to spend some money.

But those entries will come later. This entry is all about trash. And I trashed some old makeup, mostly just mascaras and eyeliners that had gotten too hard, crusty, or otherwise gone south.

13 of them. Which should tell you one reason I’m paring down what I have.

It’s great – i really never thought I’d be able to start letting go of this stuff. I was cleaning and sorting and I actually had a panic attack, because I was finally doing it. It’s weird what “stuff” gets a hold of you.
