I'm avoiding packing. I couldn't even count how many times I moved as a kid and the *trend* seems to be stickin' with me.... only now I have 3 kids to pack for as well. How do we accumulate so much "stuff"???? It was interesting as my hubby & I chatted about Simplifying Our Life.... and what exactly that meant. Does it mean to go away from the world's pull of doing 101 different things, always hurrying, scrambling to accomplish the next item on our lists? The thought of taking a deep breath, smelling the roses, taking my kids for a walk to nowhere in particular except for the adventure of the walk, being able to sway in a hammock & flip through the pages of a magazine & not worry that the world will pass me by -- sounds good. It's amazing how the stresses of life can gobble me up & weigh me down. Especially with building this house -- there's always a decision to make, someone to phone, someone to hire, something to DO! I love the summer time. I love the kids home. I love the lack of schedule & routines. I love the idea of simplifying my *stuff* too!! As I pack and toss -- ahhhh -- feels good. I hate clutter. However... this card SCREAMS clutter -- and I think it works! LOL. I don't usually fuss with cards like this with all the little cutting out & watercoloring, but sometimes it's fun to just take my time with a card & play... simply to do just that - play.
