It’s been a long, strange three years. All of the important things are still going well, but we’re finding ourselves in a position where we will be moving again*. I’m still fighting the messie hoarding battle, though things are not desperate now. Honestly, I have found myself in a place where I no longer fit into the forum I created, which is fine. I have every intention of keeping the forum as is, but I don’t have any plans to add new members any more. I just couldn’t keep up with it, especially with everything else that was going on in my life. If that changes, I will let you know.
That said, I will be adding more articles about cleaning, decluttering, de-hoarding, and moving. I also have a tumblr where I occasionally post on my decluttering progress. http://www.tumblr.com/blog/mymessyhouse. There IS salty language on that tumblr. I found that when it comes to decluttering and cleaning, the salty language helps motivate me. This website will remain clean, but I have no promises of the same for the tumblr.
*We don’t know when or where we will be moving. In order to move without me having a nervous breakdown, we need to avoid putting our current house on the market until we have all our stuff moved out. That means both of us have to have jobs there. We have two strong target cities and two desired locations, but only time will tell. The good thing is, this gives me time to sort through the accumulated junk. I found boxes in the garage that were packed in Germany in 1999 and have not been opened since. (A cleanie would say “chuck them!” but there are things I have been looking for, so I still hope to find them in those boxes.)
