1. With spring comes the idea of spring cleaning!! Decluttering has been on my mind for quite some time. Every time I’ve been back to the house in Texas the past year, I’ve done some decluttering. Sometimes it’s been big jobs like my whole closet and the entire pantry other times it has been as simple as the medicine cabinet. I’m also in the process of decluttering the house in New Mexico. I am now waiting on bookshelves to be built so I can tackle the boxes and stacks of books that Dr. T and I have!! The bottom line is that I don’t want my kids to have to deal with all of my crap someday, and I really only want items that have purpose and bring joy to fill my spaces!!!
This is a great decluttering article for ideas for different amounts of time you might have: 1 day or 1 hour or 10 minutes or just 1 minute

3. Something else that has made me laugh this week was a skit on SNL. I normally don’t watch Saturday Night Live. I used to love it, but I frankly don’t find it funny anymore, but this was funny. I joke with my friends all the time that I live my life in my yoga pants now!!! This really made me laugh!!
4. I’m not really sure why I found this article as interesting as I did. I used to love to read the wedding section of the New York Times. Some of the articles are better reading than any best seller. As you know if you have read very many of my blog posts, my favorite reading is nonfiction. Give me a biography and I am extremely happy. I guess the glimpse into this widow’s life and her words just really piqued my interest this week!!
“Romeo and Juliet never had to grow older together or put their kids through college,” said Ms. Mead-Armor, now 67, in a phone interview from her home in Waynesboro, Va., on the southern fork of the Shenandoah River. “Juliet never went through menopause. You don’t live happily ever after.
Real Life Can Be Raw, in marriage and death
