    Apparently I need permission? Or pushing? Or a therapy session?
    I still have an Italian text circa 1965...I'm pretty attached to it, and it's small...

    I must be Dutch because I air the bed and never make it). I threw away all my textbooks a few years before retiring.

    Wohoo! Hubster just put 4 crossbody bags (from conferences), into the thrift store box! Let me tell you, this is a HUGE step for him! I told him that had I known he had them at his office, I could have prevented the last 2 bags I bought to use for work briefcases. Dang. In the morning, I'll see if one of these may suit me better for laptop travel trips as opposed to the larger one I bought for work where I was a pack animal for meetings: laptop, power cord, purse, water bottle, lunch or snacks.....that sucker is big!

    I am sorry, but this just is not possible for me.

    I'm with you. I just arrange the bedclothes over myself every night. I can make the bed if I ever offer the place for sale...
    I think most housework was invented to keep women--or household help--busy.

    We're shut up for winter, so no point airing anything. I really feel better if the beds are made in the morning. Not that I've done it yet, haha.

    You guys motivated me to stop storing stuff in my inbox. Every e-mail has been archived or deleted except 3 items. Now will have to go through those archive folders someday!

    Rosa, that's great! Going through archives is a fun activity when you have 5-10 spare minutes.
