tired but inspired

Funny. I was so dead tired when I got home. Barely spoke a word at the dinner table and D even asked me twice if everything was OK and once if I was mad at him. I wasn't being nasty...just quiet. But it's usually when he catches on that I know I need a few minutes alone doing something cathartic.
(***OK pause...funny story time. because I am so tired, I second guessed my choice of words there and went to look up "cathartic" in the dictionary (well, the online dictionary hee hee). The first 3 meanings had to do with laxatives and purging of the bowels. I quickly scrolled down, thinking...no...am I THAT far off base!? Nope I'm not...also emotionally purging...phew! That was a close call with seriously misusing a word!)
So, while I'm being all cathartic, sorting through my clothes for a clothes swap some friends and I are doing tomorrow, I felt tired, but somehow rejuvenated and motivated. I totally purged!! I'm taking 2 big huge bins full of clothes and shoes to swap. Yeah baby! Let's just hope I don't come home with two full bins of 'new' stuff!

And to close, I'm feeling the need to share a photo. Let me go find one.


OK it's an oldy but goody and it makes my heart smile (as AmbyN would say...smile...)
