|My Library and My Closet|
It occurs to me there are just some issues that can't be fixed by rearranging stuff.
One of them is the fact that during the day I can't see anything but dark shadows backlit by window light.
While the evenings are taken up by dinner and reading to Mom before she goes to bed.
So that leaves the weekends when Mom is at my brother's to address it. Whether that means putting away the clean clothes laid willy-nilly during the week and those disarranged by rummaging for outfits or a complete reorganizing like it needs now. Just one of a gazillion tasks that jostle for attention between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening.
The state it is in now is partly explained by my having unpacked the winter clothes from the big duffle that was supporting the boxes on the purple chair just before Christmas. Not only is the duffle not plump enough to support the boxes I've not got around to packing up the summer clothes so there's more stuff to shuffle.
Another issue that can't be fixed by rearranging the stuff is the fact that 50% or more of it is too big for me now and needs to be purged... All the 2x and 3x and sizes 20 to 24 need to go or be altered. And even certain cuts and styles of 1x and 18s. Also the size 8.5 - 9 shoes.
But that's an issue that goes deeper than a simple organization task. I'm emotionally attached to every item. It's going to take more than a weekend to deal with that.
But if I did purge all that maybe I could have the purple chair back as a reading chair again. Could that be motivation enough?
