Brendan is telling me to do a freewrite, so I'm doing a freewrite. I don't know what it is, exactly. I'm not unwilling to do freewrites. It's just not a habit, so every time I think about it, it feels like there are all these little steps that add up to make it something I don't want to take the time and energy to do. Emu.

Our child is throwing things out of his room while he is supposed to be napping and it is really, really annoying. He's not yet 3 and we try to make clean up fun and something he can help with and I praise him when he helps and we sing songs and yada yada yada but of course he still makes way more messes than he helps clean up. Emu.

Our place is cluttered and I'd like to make it my fall/winter activity to really focus on decluttering and cleaning up. I've long been sick of the clutter. I think I've talked about this before...the thing is, many of the things that clutter up our home would likely wind up in a landfill if they weren't here, and sometimes I do have that experience where I'm like, oh such and such thing would be useful right now, ha ha! I still have it. Emu.

Emo. I'm feeling a little emo lately. Depressed at the state of the world. There's some climate despair, especially now with all the smog here in L.A.


I am with you on all of the above. The clutter, finding to have gone rid of things I now could use, not wanting more things in the landfill, the climate crisis which really is part of the landfill crisis - or rather the other way around.
So many huge problems that all are somehow related and we could have a solution but we don't...
Big hugs to you!

Hugs to you too!!
