I had actually completely forgotten about this blog. I am now reviving it.
I am still on my journey toward a simple life. I have just read Marie Kondo's book: http://tidyingup.com/ and have already gone through my closet and gotten rid of 3 white garbage bags full of clothes and taken them to the free box. I still have to purchase an actual chest of drawers so I'll have drawers to be able to put my folded clothes into.
In some ways I have complicated my life in that I took on the role of Coordinator of a Steampunk Festival here in my town of Springfield. 2015 was our first year and although it was successful it took a heavy toll on my psyche and health. This year I have a lot more help in managing the different areas and for that I am grateful. I am still not sure that I will be able to do it another year and I hope someone will step up and take the reigns with me just being a consultant and running the website. Here is a link to our website: http://springfieldvtsteampunkfest.com
I'll try to write more about what other things I have done to simplify my life in another post.
I'm back! :-)
