I started my clutterbuster blog to track my efforts to de-clutter our home, as opposed to my OldDogBlog which is a diary of my efforts to change my life. There's more overlap than I expected.

I haven't been making much progress on de-cluttering the house, but I'm slowly working on the bigger picture. Prioritizing is a big part of it.

How is it that, while I have been dying to de-clutter for years, and while I finally have time to do it, and feel great doing it, I am moving so extremely slowly?

Well, the beautiful spring weather may have a little to do with it. But probably more so some bigger questions. Like, what do I want to do with my life? What do I want to do with my day? What am I actually going to get done in this particular hour? And how can I do more of the things that are most important to me?

Well, for the next couple of hours, the most important things are going to be making supper and then raking the back yard with my little boy who loves to help, bless his heart.


  1. Mine seems to be going slowly as well....I keep telling myself that it took years to get this way, it will take a while to undo it.
    I'm off to cook dinner for the family, too. :0 That's the important stuff...:)

  2. Thanks. So true, so true.
