Dreadful Dinner Dilemmas Dissolved

Astronerd LOVES dinner! Eating is a small portion of it, what matters to her is the ritual of gathering together at the end of the day, seeing each other and talking. Oh, and eating. Sometimes I get into my meal planning groove and life is good. I wish it happened more often. In an effort to be more consistent and after reading lots of reviews, we are trying this. So far, so good. The food has been good, the meals easy to fix and the grocery budget is low.

Cleaning up my life

So many blogs talk about organization, but what if one has too much stuff? I look around my home and think it isn't necessarily a problem organizing than owning too much stuff. It would kill me to only pare my possessions to 100, but I don't have to have 10 shelf feet of cookbooks or VHS tapes that will never be watched. So, I have decided to get rid of five things per day and am chronicling it at
I wonder how on earth some of it got into my home to begin with. I must remember 1. I am not the only one living here and 2. Tastes and interests change. I don't know how many times I have picked up an item and said "What was I (or other family member) thinking when this came to live at our home?"

Anyway, if you want an inside look at what is departing our home, stop over there.
