Living in a Fishbowl
Packing. That act of digging out long forgotten relics from drawers and cabinets. Trying to figure out just why you own certain things. Better yet, trying to figure out why you still own those things. Then the ultimate decision – to keep or not to keep?
Doesn’t it seem that you need something only after you’ve given it away? This phenomenun is only punctuated by the fact that the articles in question have been sitting silently, unused for several years. Now try foraging through vast amouts of nick nacks, unearthing dust bunnies and contributing to the house’s general disarray, only to receive a call from the realtor stating that someone wants to come see your house. Quick! Shove it all into a closet or under the bed! Get the broom and the dust mop!
This message is brought to you by the masters of the 10 minute tidy. How do we hide all the boxes though? *shrugs shoulders and tears off piece of packing tape* Have a great day everyone!
