Quote for the day:
What hair color do they put on the
driver's licenses of bald men? 
 ~ from funny email I received today

Just to let you all know...

The MRI shows a disc herniation at L4-L5 lumbar (lower back)...but also shows extensive arthritis in the spine.  The doctor is more concerned about the arthritis than the herniation
as the arthritis is chronic and can be more problemsome in the future.  The herniation can be resolved...the arthritis can not...

She has ordered Physical Therapy which will start on Monday and she has taken me off of work till Nov. 1.  As it was, I was only to work this next week and then have the next two weeks off for vacation what it will be at this point is that I will actually be drawing sick pay till Nov. 1 and then take my week of vacation after that.

We are assuming that all will be better by the 1st and I can return to work...and time will tell on that one.  Basically, we will be playing it " by ear" based on the results of the PT and the pain. 

Yesterday was a GLORIOUS day with basically NO pain.  I felt wonderful all day long!   However, this morning I woke up in pain again.  :(   So, is going to be a day-by-day thing.

As for decluttering, I have found someone who wants the rifle scopes!  So they will be winging their way to them soon!  LOL  I love it how these things work out!  

I know I have some things that need to be listed on Ebay...I need to set them aside and then get them listed while I'm going to be off of work.  

My question I list them as decluttering when I separate them from the herd or when they leave my house?  I'm leaning toward that the definition counts when they are separated from the herd, because if they don't sell, they will go in the yardsale pile...which falls under my own definition of decluttering!  :)

Remember...progress, not perfection, is what we are striving for!  There are no "decluttering police"...our goal is to just keep moving forward!  :D

See how easy I am go get along with!  Sheesh...don't believe what my family tells you!  LOL

Please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by and to let me know what you "released" into the wild!  



  1. Yesterday I went through the toybox and made a full bag of toys for goodwill, along with a few T-shirts. I will get the bag there next week sometime. I went to an "Organizing for the Holidays" seminar Thursday nite and one tip she gave was to keep a "Goodwill Box" and continuously add to it as you find things and take it in at least monthly. I like this tip!
    I'm so happy you found someone to take those rifle scopes off your hands. That's Great!....
    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Been so busy with soccer and Ashley that I have had little time to declutter anything.. However, I did get the Boat cleaned out and ready to go up in the shed for the winter.

    Take it easy... Get better soon....
