I follow The Single Woman and that is where I was inspired to come up with this year ending purging from my life. The first post (Life’s Changing Landscape: Shelving 2011) covers the how/why, the rest will be the 31 things I am shelving from 2011 that will not go with me into the new year, the full list of posts pertaining to what I’m purging can be found here: Shelving 2011.
Empire Avenue….you fill up my inbox with emails about who bought shares in me or traded my shares. I didn’t even know what it was when I signed up and the more I see, the less I care. Time waster with absolutely NO purpose. At least none I can see, so that is going on the shelf. Now if I can just figure out how to delete my account!
News twitter accounts and Facebook accounts – I am so done following them. My feeds fill up with all kinds of “breaking news” that frankly isn’t worth knowing. And one local news chain has 3 twitter accounts, one for news, traffic and weather. They tweet the same stupid information across all 3! I follow weather to get weather, not traffic. So, bye bye to all of it. When I want to know what is going on in the world I will go to their sites to look. No more weeding through things I just don’t care about!
Sleeping in…excessively. I’ve spent several days peeling the paint off the ceiling of my room way past when I needed to be in bed. My normal rising time during the week is 5:30am. It gives me time to shower, dress, check emails and allow coffee to pass the blood brain barrier so I can function enough to ensure I diaper the right end of the babies. 🙂 7:30am is sleeping in, by 2 hours. Time to start pulling out of the rack so that the day is not a waste of time. Too much to accomplish!
