October 21

I didn’t sleep well last night and woke up feeling yucky. My stomach bothered me all day; I even left work early. Of course, I find it difficult to come home and rest because I see so much that I still need to do around the house. In fact, sick or not, I planned to clean up my room tonight. I’m in the process of switching out summer clothes for winter. (One day I’d like a closet big enough to house all of my clothes through all the seasons.) However, I decided mid-way that I should really eliminate some stuff again. Especially shoes. I rather love shoes, but I find myself wearing the same few pairs repeatedly, forgetting about others I have sitting on the shelves. Of course, even a quick look through the boxes will explain why that happens. I have shoes (and some clothes!) for a different life. Some where along the way I started collecting shoes for places I haven’t gone and probably never will. Beautiful high heeled shoes that are not possible to wear to work. Well, not for the work that I do. And I don’t get invited to many places that require me to dress up. I guess I’ve held on to some of them because I actually do like dressing up occasionally. I wouldn’t mind a fancy affair now and then. But I simply don’t have that kind of social circle. And it’s silly to hold on to things just in case. Especially when it’s creating stress in my daily life. The clutter is killing me. But it’s going to have to wait another day. I’m too exhausted to tackle it. I’m thankful tonight that I can put off some stuff like I do. I’m also thankful that I can let some things go, even my shoes. It will be a little painful, but the payoff of an organized space will make it worth it.
