if you don't use it, don't really lose it

I have this damn blog thing. Why not use it?

I have been standing in the middle of my living room for 3 months. Yes, you heard me. 3 months. I have 2 problems. First, I cannot refuse someones old furniture. I'm the person people give their "unwanted but too good to throw away crap" to. Then I can't get rid of it because I feel like I'm throwing away a gift. Anyway, I'm stuck with it. Second, I move. A lot. So I haul this shit all over the country with me and try to fit it into the place we happen to be living in at the time. So, here I am. 3 months after moving and I'm still standing here trying to make it fit.

You should see me. It's the same routine every morning. I pour a big cup of coffee, put Lane on the floor with some toys and just stand here. I guess I think if I stand here long enough this crap will turn into the furniture from the pages of an anthropologie catalog. Hasn't happened yet. I think tomorrow's the big day. I'll keep you posted.
