Just marking my way through

I’m sitting here waiting for the boys to get out of school. I wouldn’t mind them taking the bus home, but they have hockey practice. Well, one has hockey. The other will be driving cause of course, I can’t drive home at night.

I’m thinking I need to minimize my stuff again. This time my stationery. I have enough with me alone buying things over the years. I have projects that have started years ago that I have yet to finish.

Though it seems that I’m the stationery drop off point for those that have no use for their old stationery. Take my youngest whom has left for college and left me her entire Crayola marker set.

Who needs all these markers? I will never use them?! Mostly cause they are in a box under my desk. Out of my sight. When I’m drawing I use my Tombows. I will not part with my Tombows, cause I use them.

There are just so many stuff that I don’t use. And Sharpies! I love Sharpies. I have every color of the rainbow and some made up colors that they have made. But how did I get doubles, and triples and quadruples of different colors? And why do I still have them?

But right now, I feel an urge to just get rid of all this. I don’t like having too much stuff. I feel awful having them. I also feel awful just throwing them out. But do I give my old stuff to someone else so it accumulates in the back of their closet or under their desk?

Growing up I didn’t have too much stuff. I had stuff. But my mom made sure I didn’t have too much stuff. It got to a point that I learned how to clean so it looked like I had no stuff so my mom would quit ‘cleaning’ house. I also learned not to leave any homework lying around cause those ended up in the trash also. Though yes, this has made me feel that I need to get rid of my things so I don’t feel like I’m hoarding anything. Let’s not talk about my collection of bags that I have kept since high school. That’s another story for another day. If it is in good condition, I have trouble letting go of it.

But what do I do with these plethora of pens and markers that I have accumulated over the years?

And please don’t mind the layout of this site. I’m sloooooowly working on it. What colors should I use on this thing?


Till next time.. Cat
