The great thing about being stuck at home is that we are finding all sorts of cabinets and closets that need to be cleaned out … and we are actually cleaning them out. The sad thing is that we have been putting off cleaning out the “bill cabinet” for over two years and once we finally got started we had it done in less than an hour. Maybe that will teach us to stop delaying things that need to get done … nah … probably not.
Finding my teaching certificates, articles in the newspaper about me teaching, and the coursework for the Masters degree that I will probably never use again sent me into a fit of sadness and anxiety …. but I boxed that stuff up and put it in the basement. I can’t go back and change those things, so it does me no good to dwell on it. Moving that stuff to the basement was me moving on …. and who knows, my miracle might be right around the corner.
