I am sort of a hoarder. Not like on the A&E TV show, but I save EVERYTHING. I am trying my hardest to throw things out. Some days it is easy, but most days it’s not. I have 2 boxes in our garage of just junk. Literally – I could throw those boxes out and not miss a single thing in them. I don’t know why it’s so hard. I have given myself until June 1st to get rid of all of the unnecessary items in my life. I have longed to be on of those people who could just pack a suitcase and move without any other belongings to worry about – alas, that is not me. I have scrapbooks, pictures, special mementos….so much stuff I have personified. Today’s picture is an example of how I do not throw things away. It’s my favorite pair of tennis shoes. Literally – I LOVE them. I have had them since about 2003 and I wear them at least 4 times a week. John hates them and tells me how scruffy they look all the time, but me I just want to wear them constantly. They should have fallen apart by now and I have no idea why they are still wearable. I told John that even if we were to win the lottery I would never throw these shoes out.
