Celebrate: Indiana Jane & Giveaways

This week I'm celebrating -- throwing stuff away! 

As you know if you've been reading my posts, I've been shamelessly whining about Spring Cleaning for some weeks. Now that I've finally finished cleaning (YAY!), I realize my writing room is like a garage (or attic). It has a ton of boxes filled with the leftovers from the 2 careers I had before I became a writer (dancer & singer), plus all those things I rarely use (like a sewing machine or suitcases) or never use (like a VHS player and tapes or curtain rods from a different apartment). 

My writing space is half the size it should be because of boxes, and I'm wedged into a little corner. 

Time to go through everything and get rid of as much as possible!

Once I began to organize and decide what to keep, what to giveaway, and what to throw away, I started to feel as if the box stacks grew to gigantic proportions. Soon I might become Indiana Jane and stumble across the Arc of the Covenant!

Using my lazy, snail-speed slow-but-steady approach to work, I hope to be done in a few weeks. 

But if you don't hear from me soon, I may be trapped under the pile. 

Send help!

Do you have a room that's a catchall for all those things you don't know where to put?
