FREE....{to a good home}


We are needing more room, and the easiest way to do that is to get rid of things. This is a table that we have had for many years. We actually got it for free from a yard sale in Monterey when we were there. It's kindergarten art table that we have used for everything! It has been propped up and used as a dinner table, it's been used as a sewing/craft table, an art table, and a platform to jump off from for the Superman phase that the boys have gone through. This table has been to 4 states and 5 moves. Yeah I'm kinda attached.

But all good things must come to an end. We need the room that this big boy is taking up for the new addition {that is coming in a week!!} so it needs to go.

As we were taking the table out to the curb I was thinking about the other things that I hold on to that need to go to make room for better things. Am I holding onto a TV show when it's really not that uplifting... especially when there are many other things I can be doing that are much better. Am I holding on to a cute pair of pants that I know I will never fit into again... making me think about my thinner years instead of focusing on the here and now.

Our lives often filled with so many unnecessary things and then rather than letting go we hang on to them and then they start to take up room and clutter things. So as the better things come along we don't have room for them.

So this last week before Benjamin is born I'm trying to do a quick clean up not of the house but of myself. {I'm not sure how much time I'll have after the baby comes home} I know that at least with myself it will take more than a week to clean up and remove any extras that I have, but at least I'm starting.

Great post! I am starting to wonder the same thing as baby number four is approaching. Except...I am worried it may be blogging that gets put out on the curb. Yikes! :S

We have a very heavy sofa bed that is stuck in our computer room. I rally wish we could use it in the basement or upstairs in the den, but just can't picture anyone manipulating on the stairs. It's just way heavy and of course, long and awkward to carry.

one quick click will help me get into the top 25!!
