Simplifying our House
We have to much stuff. As I have spent the last several weeks cleaning out drawers and closets I am just amazed at how much stuff we have, and we don't even have what most would consider a large house. I never really realized just how much stuff we Americans have until going to Ethiopia. It is really ridiculous. So we are having a rummage sale this weekend. To be honest I hate rummage sales, they are alot of work and where we live you just don't make much money. People will haggle you till you can't stand it anymore. But every penny counts right now so the sale is on. I can't wait to have some of this out of my house. We are making room in our middle level living room to turn it into a playroom and then we will be able to set up the crib in our daughter's room. She is excited to share her room as she has never liked sleeping alone and most likely neither will our new son or daughter. Children sleeping alone in rooms is a very western practice. So anyways off I go to sort and price. Most likely when it is all over I will hang up a free sign and give the remainders all away.
