Next week, things are going back to ‘normal’. (Whatever that is supposed to be.) Our regular routine will resume and we will keep plugging away with our learning. Before then, I think this mommy needs to clear away some unfinished business.
There are several books which have been given to me (not recently either, mind you), a Bible study I still have yet to finish, and several magazines I have yet to look through. My small cupboard of personal space is becoming overcrowded with items I need to go through.
This week, I am attempting to read through my materials and downsize, if possible. This is always the hard part. The books are simple enough; read them or don’t and give away the don’ts. The magazines easier still; read and return to library. The Bible studies are a little more challenging though.
Does anyone go back and re-read their old studies? I have books dating back several years and I have not once gone back to open them up. No review, no reference; nada! So… do I keep them or figure they’ve served their purpose and it’s time to create more space?
No matter, I’m sure I’ll find a suitable solution. While the space is organized, it is just becoming a little too crowded for my taste. Minimalism is my middle name! (Not really, but I dislike clutter with a passion.)
By the end of this week, I will be down to an even more organized collection of materials. With that, a clean house, a stocked kitchen, and everyone back on a more human sleep schedule, things should be running smooth.
Do you have any unfinished business you want to get off your plate before heading back into a regular routine?
