…or maybe not. See what I mean about too much stuff, even stuff rolling around in my head? I totally pulled that nonsense from the recesses of my brain. I haven't watched Real World since the 90s.
Here are some goals*:
Go through our house room by room and consider the intended function of the room, what items help that function, and get rid of the superfluous stuff. (This doesn't mean there won't be pictures on the walls or decorations when I get through with the place, but I am truly reducing what we own…winnowing.)
Come up with efficient, workable systems of organization for everything from laundry to paperwork to dvds to dry goods, using the resources we already own (baskets, plastic bins, cabinet space, containers, etc.)
Aside from groceries and gasoline buy nothing for, at least, the first 90 days of 2010. No.thing.
When buying groceries be as frugal as possible, as well as reduce the amount of processed foods we consume.
To know Jesus better, I want to take time and intentionally read only the Bible instead of devotionals or commentaries. If I had to attempt marriage with Ma Luffin' Mayun by only hearing what other people knew or thought about him based on their encounters with him rather than spending time with him and discovering him for myself, our marriage would be dead in the water. This is no different.
Consistently document the journey here. Pass or fail. Brilliance or a bust.
So, these are the guidelines, the details, of my use it or lose it life.
*These are my goals and not necessarily Ma Luffin' Mayun's, although he is giving me full support.
