CLUTTER AND TEARS
It is a weird title huh? Let me explain. I have not blogged in a several days because I have been feeling blah! I kinda lost my mojo. I get this way every now and then and I think lots of people do. I have been struggling with the idea that my son will be leaving for boot camp tomorrow. Most of you know that he joined the Air Force and though this is what we wanted for him and we are very excited, we will miss him terribly. I have had a few teary moments but I think I'm done with that. Ha! I say that, he has not left yet. The other morning, I was washing dishes and it occurred to me that he will probably never live in Big Spring again. Duh, there are no airforce bases here. We used to have Webb Air force base but that closed in the 70's. I think the closest one is in Abilene. But, knowing Cody and his high aspirations, he will want to go some place exotic and far away. So that made me sad. But, at the same time....More Power To Him! Live your dreams little birdie and FLY.... but don't forget your Mom and Dad! That is the tears part of the title.
Now for the clutter part. Lately, I have been overwhelmed with clutter! Clutter in my house, clutter in my work car, clutter in my purse, clutter, clutter, clutter. There is even clutter in my brain and my calender is ....um how you say it? "CLUTTERED"! I just need to do some major spring cleaning and dejunking. I feel like I'm constantly coming in my front door with more stuff and out the backdoor to the trashcan with discarded stuff! It is a vicious cycle. So, I think I will take a little time today to make a list and prioritize and start knocking out some of this clutter! So, wish me luck with OPERATION DE CLUTTERING!
