The Great Escape

I am forthwith a fugitive from the fickle finger of Facebook, fabulously forestalling a fatal fortune formerly framed as finery.

Had to bail for the sake of sanity, both mine and my victims’ / friends’. The world is in free-fall and my powerlessness to affect that situation in any discernible way is disturbing my disposition and threatening to unhinge me altogether. Oh, I kid. So far.

Besides which I have things to do, like opening every piece of mail stacked on the dresser since sometime after the 8th of November. Found three Christmas cards, a stack of tax mailings, and a bill. Three months may be too long to put off looking carefully at that stuff, and just to be safe I’m aiming for daily now.

I have things to do like dumping yuge numbers of emails from three accounts, one of which needs to go away. Trashing most of what comes in will need to be on the daily now also.

Things like filling giant trash bags with all the crap (perfectly GOOD crap) from our closet that should be in someone else’s hands for all the reasons.

Like finally mounting a relentless assault on the bins and baskets full of office stuff we schlepped here three years ago and making decisions. In or out, go or stay, moment of truth – I have bigger fish to fry.

So that’s what the past 24 hours have looked like here: much productivity, organization, and purging, all of it a total necessity at this juncture. My brain is starting to freewheel again, which is exactly what’s required going forward.

Will I go back? Probably, I hear you never really leave. Do I want to go back? Not at all, not today. I’m liking this free-as-a-bird feeling too much, and I don’t want to waste it.

Happy sailing to you, and if the stress is getting to you too, don’t be afraid to give it all a rest.

    We are on the same page here. There is something therapeutic about the purging and the rearranging of one’s personal belongings and such. Having some nice sunny days between the cold & mucky ones has helped keep me somewhat sane in this new reality. We’ve noticed the birds are getting their new spring colors out and there has been a lot of chattering going around the farm. Spring has almost sprung, the countdown is on! On your mark, get started, get busy! 🙂

    I LOVE the quote above, and so agree! Ironically if I weren’t on FB, I wouldn’t have found your link. 😉 Happy Productive Day, friend!

      Just taking a hiatus, getting some things done, resting my heart a little. Anne’s right, we all need self-care once in a while. wishing you a good day too, Cari. ❤️

    Enjoy. Throw out all the junk. You never really needed it at all. At least that’s what I’ve discovered. I need very little.
