The Sunday Salon: Time to declutter
Sunday, March 30, 2014
Good morning, readers! Yikes, I haven't posted anything for a week. It's been busy as usual, which since I've been saying for a while, it's probably time to rethink my blogging priorities and figure out how to make time for it. I certainly have been reading more this week and will finally finish Frangipani by tonight or sometime tomorrow. I've also been writing a couple of blog posts that I need to finish. So I expect this week should look a lot better.
Yesterday, the husband and I spent most of the time looking at the new HTC One phone and pondering upgrading to it. Our current phones have become so slow that if ever there's an emergency, forget using them to make a call. It's just super annoying! We finally caved in and purchased the phones, and cannot wait to get our hands on them this week. I joke that whenever the husband and I buy the exact same thing, that thing is a goner, so we'll see how this goes.
It's a gray dreary day outside and as of now, we have no plans for the day other than staying in and reading or watching TV. It's the Walking Dead season finale tonight and I am pretty much chewing my nails with anticipation. I won't be watching the episode until tomorrow, so the wait is even more killing. This season has been so calm mostly (though one of the episodes was a huge shocker) that it feels as if something huge is going to happen tonight. The creator isn't helping at all by promising that it is going to be the most intense finale to date! As if we expected any less!
I have been contemplating doing an online declutter today. There is just so much baggage out there in my accounts that I keep getting distracted by the clutter. Either that, or I never go looking in them until it's been weeks and then I have some important stuff there covered with clutter. I have three email accounts that I use - one for personal emails, one for the blog and anything reading-related, and a third one to use for any subscriptions, shopping, and any kind of crap that tends to accumulate. I managed to clean up the reading account last week but the other two are even worse in shape. I can be very OCD sometimes about structure and predictability that if something starts spiraling out of control, it can be very hard for me to go look at it.
And now it just started raining.
