How brilliant is it to face the possibilities and promises of a new year! We have survived 2010, which was a fast and furious year. I never planned to hit the empty nest, and suddenly, there it was! The baby has gone off to college, and honestly, his parents are at a bit of a loss.

So we cleaned the house.

Really. We took 5 years of junk out of the garage. Before, only the riding lawn mower could get in there. Now, with everything put in its proper place, and half a block of stuff thrown out (wish you could see the pictures!), we can now park an SUV, a compact sedan and the riding lawn mower in there! Brilliant! Then we went after the closets in our rooms. So many needy people have been clothed by two people who decided that all of the "optimistic" clothes had to go. ;) We moved on to my desk (hours of work!) and then the linen closet. Now on to the kitchen cabinets!

The symbolism of our work has not been lost on us. We started these projects when the youngest left for school because it seemed time to get ourselves reorganized. Our lives had changed drastically, and permanently. When a child has to take care of him or herself for a time, no matter how short, they change and the family changes with them. We have continued the effort because we want to rid our lives of the extra baggage of old memories, dead dreams, wasted hours, and fruitless journeys. A new decade and a new lifestyle seem to go hand in hand with a cleanup.
