The bug has hit Scott and me at the same time–the urge to clear out clutter. Scott’s wanting to clear out his garage of the detritus of previous hobbies and devote the entire garage to the pipe-making enterprise. I’m just wanting to clear out STUFF. We’re down to one kid at home, and that one kid is going to be a high school senior next year. Why do I still have so much STUFF? My summer project is to really pare down to a scale that befits the beginning of empty nest-hood, and make room for change. That’s the feeling in the air.
