I have been MIA for the last little while. Work and life have been super busy and I have been completely swept away from the blog. Even my pre-planned blog posts have been all used up! I have been keeping up with most of your blogs – gotta love Google Reader – though I haven’t been commenting!
Aside from business of life, I’ve also been lacking on inspiration for posts. I feel as if I am boring my readers with my random attempts to pursue a minimalistic lifestyle. Also, my room is a complete mess (due to my not being at home to clean – only at home to sleep and create mess!), and I felt guilty. Aren’t minimalists not supposed to have stuff to make a mess?!
Me = fail.
Having said that, I am planning to visit the local Goodwill store tomorrow afternoon to drop off my donation stuff. I am going to grab some garbage bags from my parents’ place and then transfer the items from their current location in my Rubbermaid bin to different bags. I have a bunch of clothes that I no longer wear, and some stuffed animals that are only collecting dust. I should probably go through my bookshelf, as well, but we’ll save that for another day.
One of my current goals now, is to get rid of the rolling 3-drawer storage container in my washroom. I’m a little embarrassed of how much stuff I still have in my washroom, despite cleaning in out a few times. I promise to take a picture of all my toiletries after this cleaning session. I plan on further decluttering my make up bag(s). Even though I don’t wear a lot of make up, I have accumulated quite a bit over the years, and most of it is rarely used.
Other than that, aside from work, I have been out and about the city, just soaking in summer. It’s already August, and this awesome weather will be no more. Summer is always too short in Toronto!
What have you been up to lately? How do you keep up with your work-life-blog balance?
