Okay, now I have a large clear space on one side of my bedroom, and nothing to put there. I hauled several more boxes upstairs today, taking care to go slowly so I didnít hurt myself (or fall down (or both)). Thereís still plenty of room in the loft for more, too, but I have to decide how to use it. Not that thereís any shortage of clutter that wouldnít look better where no one could see it.
So what do I do with the extra downstairs space? I was thinking a chair would be nice, but I donít have a chair. I tried it out late this afternoon, piling a couple of pillows next to the window and trying to read. It just gets dark so early, though, especially when the fog is rolling in over the hills. After ten minutes or so, I couldnít see the page.
Still, I donít intend to bring anything back down. I like the wide open spaces. Thereís only one big problem, and Iím sure you can see what it is. Any empty spot in my house simply attracts more clutter. I canít see that beautiful expanse of bare carpeting staying that way for long. Ancient bad habits hang on with the grip of a bulldogís jaw.
