Just a little bit of housecleaning...

It has recently become evident to me that I need to focus on the positive more and clear my mind and life of negativity. It's been a long time a-comin' (as my dad would have said), but the time is here.

There were signs along the way, small ones, then larger ones, and they were signs that I should have paid more attention to, but I ignored them as I have done often in the past. There's no reason to go into any of it here...suffice it to say it's a brand new day and a new way for me.

Now, let's get this party started!

I resemble that remark

I recently joined Freecycle.

If you don't already know, the Freecycle network is a non-profit organization serving to help people and reduce the amount of waste going into landfills. I joined the local group in order to find homes for several items I no longer had a use for.

People who need an item, or have an item to give, email the group moderator who either approves or denies the request. If approved, it is emailed out to all the members who then respond to the individual.

Today as I was reading requests from folks on Freecycle, I came upon this one:

Gordon S
[CoeurdaleneFreecycleTM] seeking marbles.

As sorry as I am to hear that Gordon has lost his, it gave me an idea. Since I seem to be in a similar situation, I think I will try asking for some myself.
