    Ugh. I have a pair of perfectly good Levi's jeans my kids outgrew - they're adult size, can't believe I can't find someone to give them to, JUST gave away a huge bunch of clothes. WTF? Toss? I'm seriously tempted. Keeping them means I have a "pile" or "stash." OK. I should just toss and hope I can follow through with it.

      @strandpiper There is a blue jeans recycling program that uses old jeans as insulation: bluejeansgogreen.org I'm going to take some old jeans next time I'm going to town because there are holes where the back pockets are sewn on- thought that was a pretty cool use for them!

        @fiercepixie Great idea, thank you! Actually I know a bunch of places with uses for them, but I'm so busy that it is just junk until I can make things like that happen. Finding the ideal use for things is part of the problem- I need to let stuff go and not worry whether it's going to good/best use or not, at least until I retire and don't have a husband and kids at home. Guilt is horrible to carry around on top of all the stuff I have.

    2 bags of clothes away this month. Many drawers have remained in Konmari folding.

    Danger zone- parent meeting today nobody said they were signing up next year- I don't want to give my kid who will be a senior next year short shrift but I don't think it helps him either. It does not help me, that's for sure!

    Failing this week- people are throwing low-pay work at me, but they're acquaintances! I need to focus.

    Someone I just met sent me something new to work on- I don't want to do it for free, and I don't have time. I should have said no but it just wasn't the circumstance. I'll have to give it a look and say something on Saturday.

    Realized this week that even a brief volunteering thing for an organization I love can create stress and friction between individuals and ruin it. Remember when volunteering for the church left you changing churches? Don't forget it.

    I volunteer for too many things. I just told my kids' school that I would not hold parent association office next year. That felt great.

    I was ridiculously angry this last week, at someone I volunteer with. He said "I already told you" how to do something, and after much wasted time combing through old communication, I was right, no he didn't. I felt better knowing he was wrong, and angry when I thought I was missing something. I think there's something to that. The threat of being/looking incompetent was worse than the actual slight. ALSO- I do not have to be a volunteer. Not for everything, not all the time. See goal on saying no more often.

    My diet has been atrocious lately. Being on antibiotics makes everything taste funny. 😞 Instead of not eating I've been putting unhealthy things in my mouth. 😞

    I have been putting off my health and wellness. My family takes care of theirs pretty much, not sure why other than astronomical co-pays, outstanding surgery bills, and so few choices in doctors at the moment. I still should try.

    Made dinner with his dietary needs in mind while the kids are out of town, not hogging the remote. Remembering to listen. So far so good.

    I remembered to wear what he likes tonight, and good or bad, I told him what I really had wanted for valentine's day. I held his hand while we watched TV tonight and asked all about his day. Then we got what he suggested for dinner.

    Plan to Skype with friend who moved out of state last year, tentative date tomorrow. Asked about kids and job.

    I'm doing better keeping my phone near me, even though I work at home, so EV-eryone else I know can text me. That's what they like. OK.

    Finding where all the photos have gone is a step. So is printing/retrieving from old devices/ sorting, etc. It's going to be a big job. I am not sure where to start.

    I should add some more achievable goals in the meantime for knitting. There isn't time to do a sweater, and my cats may not let me get even a scarf in this year.

    What Matters in Mayhew started 2/21/17. It reminds me of visiting my friend's family home in Mayo - it's so clear, just like I picture all my trips to NW/C Florida. I can see it all just like my childhood- I am really enjoying this author.

    I just finished The Hypnotist's Love Story, my first "chick lit" - just not my genre but well done. That's #2 finished for 2017 I think. Recently finished The Shining.

    Ancestry/Newspapers UK is free for a day or two- I should try to remind myself to check it out. Update: Nothing there without a trial of the paid program.

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
