R U OK?

Today is R U OK? Day.

It's interesting we need a day to ask each other how we are going, but it's good to put ourselves out there and ask someone we normally wouldn't.

It seems like there is a shortage of quality communities out there, the kind where people ask each other how they're doing and understand each other well enough to know the answer before it's spoken. I am very grateful to be a part of a community that comes very close to this, but at the same time can see that it is very important to continue to share hard times, real feelings and what's 'going on inside' because even in a crowd you can be isolated. Even surrounded by people who love you, no one can see under your skin, or past your smile. You have to let people in.

So lovely people, just so you know, today I am ok. Are you?

Claustrophobia

I'm starting to feel a bit claustrophobic in my house. There's too many things everywhere and I think the bike being kept in the kitchen isn't helping. I keep seeing these beautiful clutter free houses on Pinterest and they are making me jealous.

In reality my house is semi neat, especially after Suada comes and cleans things, but this is a bit of a warning for those who live me with me (Franklin) even though you don't read my blog. It must be SPRING CLEANING (read clearing out) season... because we have too much STUFF and a BUNCH of it needs to GO!

Does anyone want to help?

This is not an actual question/request, as the risk of incurring The Wrath of Franklin is very great, and I wouldn't risk any one of your lives over the state of clutter in my house. Well wishes would be very welcome however! As would any ideas of how to get the bike out of the kitchen.
