Wooot! Kim did a fabulous job and it went really well. Better than I thought it would, actually.
I didn’t feel overwhelmed because she just told me where to start and what to do. While I’m not the most compliant of chicks, I did so in this case because I *know* that if I have to both think and do when it comes to this, it’s easy for me to go into overwhelm. She surveyed the room we were to start in and got a plan together. In fact, she’s going to come over every two weeks and we’ll work on it bit by bit.
The cool thing I realized is that she can see potential in a house like I can see potential in a person. We all have to work to our strengths and looking at an empty (or horrifically cluttered) room and seeing what could be is so not mine. But it is hers and I am thankful for that, truly. We went to Kmart to get some plastic bins for things and looked at curtains for my office (yep, I am working to get that together!). She said let’s look at twin sheets because you can use them as curtains with a bit of alterations. I told her I was essentially a 12 year old girl at heart and so we looked at sheets in the children’s aisle. I found something with flowers on it that I loved so we got that. Wheee! That’s a project for another day. I was pooped by the end of the day and I didn’t do even a third of what she did but it brings her the same kind of joy my woo stuff brings me. I find that interesting. (I find a lot of things interesting. For example, the fact that I am content eating peanut butter on one slice of wheat bread for dinner every single night last week. Shhh! Don’t tell Duty.)
It felt really good to let go of a lot of stuff. Duty and I will be making runs to the dump and the hospice place where I donate unwanted items next week. That will make him really, really happy. Happy Duty = peaceful and nice household and I’m pretty much all for that.
She left me a few things to accomplish before she returns in two weeks so I’m going to work on it bit by bit each day. And I know that by creating a space for my intuitive work, it will flow that much more easily to me.
