March’s Link Party

It’s time for March’s Link Party with Sheryl at A Chronic Voice. Woo Hoo! I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s contributions. This month’s prompts are:


This topic is so my life right now, as I sort everything I own for moving. It is literally exhausting going through stuff I didn’t even remember I had. What do I keep? What goes to charity? Trash? Which one of my kids does this item belong to? My son, who lives an hour away, was in town this past weekend. It was great to have help! My oldest daughter is planning to help me tackle my closet next weekend. It just amazes me how much stuff I have crammed into cupboards and drawers!


Sheryl inspired me to try getting to bed earlier and getting up earlier. I need more structure to my not-employed life. I want to do this as self-care. I’m hoping to get into a better routine BEFORE I move into an apartment.


My roof has been leaking into the upstairs bedrooms and hallway. Not dripping, just staining and bubbling the paint on the ceilings. The good news is that I just need to repair the flashing around the chimney. I don’t have to redo the whole roof. I’m thankful for that news!!


I love books and reading, and I have stacks of books to read everywhere. Currently, I’m working on:

Of Mess And Moxie by Jen Hatmaker

The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp

Re-Creating Home: Downsizing and De-Cluttering After 50 by Fran Scoville and Holley Ulbrich

A Survival Guide To Selling A Home by Sid Davis

The Art of Money by Bari Tessler

I did not realize I was reading so many books at one time! It’s time to finish one.


I had to think about this one for a bit, because usually I think about my children’s accomplishments. One thing I am proud of, is my keeping up with physical therapy for balance issues, and neck/shoulder pain. Physical therapy is really hard work for me, and I haven’t really noticed an improvement in my balance yet. But I just keep hanging in there. Bravo me!

  1. Hi Kathy,
    Pentrest had some printable pictures of Library shelves with blank spine books shelved in various positions. You could put an Author or Genre at the top and on each book write a Title you want to read and then color it when you have read it. Also, make one of books in a series by Author and color the ones read in the past so you know which ones to buy or get from the library when you are ready to continue in the series.

    Since I have little room for physical books I use Book Bub and Amazon and get free books. If there is a series I order the other books from the Public Library.

    God give you strength each day and help in decision making during the unclutter process.

  2. Great to read these. Good luck with the move! We’re also hoping to move soon and I know I have “a lot” of stuff to sort through! It’s amazing how much clutter we keep isn’t it! I will have to check out some of the home books you’re reading

  3. That’s kind of funny that your drawer broke from too much stuff. Definitely a sign that it was time to clear it out. Hoping you start feeling better soon.

  4. Thanks for joining in the linkup party again, Kathryn! Always good to have you 🙂 Haha I know what you mean about stuffing things in drawers and cupboards…I had a cheap Ikea drawer that broke from the weight of papers and whatnot :p

    So far I’ve failed with the rising early thing heh…but also because I’ve been sick. See what I mean?

    And congrats on keeping up with your physical therapy, it’s so important! 🙂
