We are three adults living in a polyamorous triad family. The content here is intended for an adult audience. If you are not an adult, please leave now.



I am one week away from the beginning of the week of meetings ahead of the start of the school year.  What a summer it has been.

Today, I did manage to finally go "over the top" with my summer "bag challenge."  I cleaned out the drawer in my kitchen where those plastic containers tend to accumulate.  Lots of them were without lids, and a lot of them were just tired and worn out.  I am down to just those that are decent and actually usable now.  The others were relegated to the neighborhood recycling bin.

The other bag today, was filled with old pants and jeans that I just don't like or wear anymore.  So those will be hauled off to the second-hand store later this week.

I am not done.  There are more nooks and crannies for me to weed through, but I am pleased to have done what I set out to do at the beginning of the summer.

We are still living with way more stuff than we really need around here, but it is less cluttered than it was when I started.  I'll take it.


  1. congratulations, I'm impressed with the "slow and steady" approach.


    1. I got a little derailed with all the medical stuff with Tom, but am now back to trying to get it all done.

    Time-consuming and useless meetings most of the time...

    1. Ordalie, I am lucky to have a principal who is not into wasting anybody's time. The schedule next week is packed, but it is all aimed at getting us off to a good start with our kids. Too, I've put classrooms together for a very long time now -- it doesn't take me nearly as long to do that part as it used to do.

    I use 3 large zipper bags to store my lids in. One square, one for round and one for odd shapes. Makes it easy to find them and keeps them from flopping about all over the place.

    1. Thanks, magdala! I keep them all in a drawer where I can stand the lids in between the various containers. It is pretty well organized, so the real work was just to cull out the bits that were orphaned.

      It is great to hear from you, btw. I hope that you and yours are all well.

  4. Well done Sue. I am about to embark on a serious declutter - you are an inspiration. Where though, does all that stuff come from?

    I wanted to send you a funny text in keeping with my experience of meetings but the mail you mention is apparently "not found".
