I’ve had a hard time concentrating over the past few days. My mind seems to be wandering in a million different directions all at once. I’m not sure why I feel so restless and distracted. Whenever I get this way I tend to clean the house. I’m not sure why, but somehow or another it seems to calm me.
I compiled a list of book suggestions based on last week’s post and planned to walk over to the library this evening. Unfortunately, I ended up having to work until 7:30. By the time all was said and done it was dark and late, so I decided to clean out my bookshelves instead. I’m trying to follow the rule of taking one item out of the house for every one item I bring in, plus I figured I might find a few books for donation.
Digging through the shelves I found at least ten or fifteen books that I’ve only half read. I decided to pull them out and leave them in a big pile in the living room. I would really like to finish most of them before I head out in search of new reading material.
While I was cleaning I also came across a bunch of unwanted items and posted them on eBay. I doubt any of them will sell but when I’m distracted and restless it always helps to rid the house of clutter.
