Taking a break from feeling overwhelmed to blog and breathe

29 Jul

Hi, my name is Azie & I am a purger of physical things. I am offended by clutter. It makes me anxious and distracted. I make a bi-monthly donation to the Vietnam Vets. Yes, you read that right. We have a standing appointment every other week. (Hubs is a “not-purger” but that is a story for another day.)

Therefore it is a test to my mental health to have my entire 1st floor overrun with furnishings like a Grandma Hoarder who has collected mahogany dressers & velvet settees her entire life. Three of my very best friends are visiting me this month and we have nowhere to cook or sit or eat. Since it is a means to an end, I’m trying to keep it all in perspective and look forward to the big picture.

So today I am bringing back my pregnancy (and post-pregnancy) mantra that kept me from running away from home: Everything is Temporary – including the absence of serenity in my happy place. *taking deep deliberate breaths*
