It is so nice to have clean empty space and I have a strong impulse to chuck everything else and live like a monk.
We have lived in this house for 13 years! Yikes! I can not believe it! We finally succumbed to the need for some home improvement. We put in a new kitchen last winter. We are just now getting the tiles on the backsplash. We painted the workroom/ my studio for the first time ever and are getting carpet put into the rooms. When it is all done, we are only going to put half the stuff back.
It is a very painful process - probably why we put it off for so long - but I think it will all be worth it when we have a "purified" environment.
This is all partly at the root of a project I have brewing. More details to come ....
