Lightening the Load

Let's see, do I have anything of any value to say today?  Quite honestly, no but that has never stopped me before.  I did read something very enlightening this morning.  An article said fat cells shrink with aging!  So chalk another benefit up to senior hood!  (Let's just ignore the other statement that muscle cells shrink too.  And I'm not even going to look into what happens to brain cells.)

I am making some headway on clearing the clutter.  Got the sandbags out of my pickup yesterday and hauled a large bag of unwanted clothing to a donation bin.  Plans for this weekend include taking an old mattress to the landfill and more unwanted items to a charity thrift shop.  Clutter and "stuff" can be such a burden.  Springtime is just such a good time to lighten the load!  

Next week we will be leaving for my sister's house and then travelling with them to Branson, MO for a week.  So after some more de-cluttering comes packing for the trip.  I'm famous for over packing, but I'm going to try hard to avoid that this time.  (Seems like I've said that before?)  The older I get, the less I want to carry though, so that helps.

Well, time to get on with the day.  Can't just sit here waiting for my fat cells to shrink.  You don't suppose that's just and April Fool's joke do you?
