As I have spent a lot of time alone this past year as many of us have, I feel the only growth I experience is in the realization I have too much old stuff hanging around and need to curb any growth of more stuff! I have two storage units – one from our move from TX in 1990s and one from my move in CO from 2014. I cannot even remember most of what is in the older one! 😒🥴

Since I’ve been laid up with a cold, I look to my left and see Brownie, a teddy bear my grandkids gave me in 2015 when I was in the hospital. He’s the perfect companion–soft and cuddly, a good listener, and believe it or not, puts on expressions that make me laugh. In this pic he looks like how I feel🥴
