My oldest child is spending this week at her grandparents' so guess what I'm doing? THROWING STUFF AWAY. I've never looked forward to disposing of stuff more in my life. Julia doesn't believe in throwing things away. She's better than she used to be. We used to have tearful wrestling matches over empty boxes of Lucky Charms. She can let cereal boxes go now, but she still has STUFF crammed in the corners of her room, all over the top of her desk, etc. This really gets to me because over the years, I've found that clutter really gets to me. I don't even believe in buying books. I like to check them out from the library so I can read them and then get them the heck out of my house.
On an unrelated note...I've come to a rather startling conclusion recently. After having been in love with Tom Cruise for a couple of decades, I've realized that the man is pretty much an idiot. I really think he has grape jelly for brains. I think it's a combination of his railing against the mental health profession, his "my way or the highway" devotion to the load of crap that is Scientology, and his engagement to a much younger woman after dating her for two months. Doesn't this man have children? What do they think about this?
