I forgot to charge my phone.
I had no car to get to work.
I was teaching my class and subbing for another teacher today. Twice the kiddos.
Lesson plan? No, of course not.
Thawed something for dinner? Nope.
Any clothing even remotely appropriate, clean, and ready to wear to class? Can you guess the answer to that one? (No)
A dog puking up something on the floor? Yes.
Did I forget to make the bed and did the muddy dogs made themselves at home on the pillows? Yes.
Was it a bad day? No, not really.
I found a ride to class. I managed to get enough charge on my phone to make it through. We had a “free-for-all” art class and everyone seemed to have fun. Hubby’s bringing home something for dinner. It turned out to be a dress-up day at school so no one cared what I was wearing. The washer and dryer are both working so in the sheets go. The dog puke? Nothing good to make of that…so we’ll just clean it up and let that go.
And – I managed to find 10 things to get rid of today.
Eight pieces of outgrown clothing from youngest daughter. Sharing the good stuff with a friend and pitching the worn-out stuff.
And, from under the bathroom sink – not one, but two cans of out-of-date athlete’s foot medication. Both expired in early 2014. We evidently don’t have a big problem with fungus around here, but if we do, I don’t think we’ll treat it with medication that is almost two years out of date. What’s strange is that I distinctly remember cleaning out underneath that sink not so long ago.
Decluttering is all about peeling away the layers, I tell you. There is always something else that can go. Good riddance!
