I have not bought many Christmas presents this year. And what I have bought, I've tried to fill a need. Or, at least a 'need'.
There's only just so much room for stuff. I love that the kids bought me a Kindle for Christmas. I've already given away three boxes of books.
Recently I've been feeling better and better with less and less.
Before you think I'm getting at you, believe me, I bet I had a lot more than you, I betcha.
With my primary school-teaching resource stuff (that's all subject areas, remember), and my teaching art to children stuff, and all my books, I have a whole house-load alone.
This house has four bedrooms but only two wardrobes and two closets, and that's counting the hot water closet. So, there's not much room for stuff to be put away in an orderly fashion.
I'm keeping the art stuff, if the local homeschoolers want my primary school resources they can have them for free, and I'm going to have a 'books and junk' garage sale in early February.
Here's the wonderful Leo Kottke with 'Available Space'... and a few other tunes.
