In the Bedroom

Beyond the fun stuff like hanging out all day listening to music, or having freaky relations underneath the covers, the bedroom is supposed to be a place of rest. I truly believe that. The bedroom should be a place where you can relax, unwind, and just enjoy being a human. My bedroom, however, is a mess. We probably know where the rest of this post is going, don't we.

I've decided to not play WoW tonight and get my warrior to level 67, just so I can start work on my room. I took all the clothes that were lying in piles around my room and in several hampers, clean or not, and just dumped them into the hallway. It made one huge pile. I don't know how this happened. I have no clue how I've accumulated this much cloth. My fucking closet and the 6 drawer Ikea dresser I bought last summer are full of clothes and there's a huge pile that as of this moment has no where else to be. So I have to do what the interior decorators on TV call a “hard editting”. I've been able to let go of a lot of junk these past few weeks, but my clothes will be the hardest to let go.

I haven't started on the pile yet. To prevent my cats from nesting in the pile, I shoved it into my bathroom. I'll start the process of sorting, laundering and throwing away (to recycling shops and charities of course) over the weekend. The boy is playing guitar for a soundtrack and recording on Saturday morning, so this may be one of the few weekends we won't be spending any time together. That's okay because i need to take care of all these clothes. I still can't believe I amassed all this stuff.

I'm a recovering packrat. I like simplicity and minimalism but putting that all into practice requires tremendous thought and effort on my part. Besides, there are things that were in this house that I should have let go years ago. And I don't mean just the 5 year old bills from previous apartments, all the broken gadget and manuals from stuff I don't even own anymore.

In other house news, I think it's neat that the bulbs I've planted late winter are starting to sprout. I can't wait to see how it'll turn out. Why must plants be so slow.
