2037/2017 December 30, 2017

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

I made it. I got rid of 2017 things in 2017.

If I hadn’t made it, I was going to cheat by just shredding/recycling some scrap paper (as I have a pile four or five reams high that I use for manuscript drafts, running the unused side through the printer). But, as we’ve discussed, that would have been most unsatisfying. Still, I would have done it.

But I didn’t have to, because I gave my Buffy/Angel comic book collection to the 13-year-old across the street. And I gave an old toy to the young kids down the street. And a neighbor took some other items either for the family or the food cupboard. There was a bag of mixed hardware (screws, etc.) that finally pushed me over 2017, there being enough in that bag to call it 2037. So we can call it an even 2017 if you’d like.

And I printed out a 2018-in-2018 chart. Let the games begin.


Ooops. Scrawled one word too quickly. The editor is embarrassed.

Wow, congratulations! Your inspiring me to try 2018 in 2018. Maybe!

What a cool idea! Did you create the calendar yourself?

And — I think I got rid of more than 2017 things last year if you count all of my mother’s belongings that were sold, donated, trashed by the estate sale guys.

Wow is right!! Did the chart help keep you motivated? Oh, boy, I could use something to keep me focused on this.

Hard to say what kept me motivated—I would argue I had serious problems with motivation.
