Definition: To abandon or discard; let go of something no longer needed or wanted.

Sometimes you have to let go or transfer things in baby steps.

Such has been the case with certain responsibilities at work, like the social media accounts. I set them up three years ago and managed them the first year. That duty was shifted to various other folks, but I’ve remained as back-up when needed. The school’s FB page was also tied to my personal FB account. Today, I jettisoned those page admin duties by removing myself as an admin and transferring page admin to another user. Very freeing.

I’ve also been culling my personal picture book collection at school as a season/holiday passes. Some books are gifted to the school library, but most are passed on to teacher friends or the neighborhood kids for them to enjoy. My favorites come home to be added to Sadie’s Library. I’ll use these books for therapy dog visits and future guest read-alouds. Note to self: you need to weed your quilting/sewing book collection again, too!

Our kitchen certainly functions more efficiently thanks to 3 rounds of culling unused items. I like to cook and often make dinner 4-5 nights per week. I still use the Revere Ware cookware set we were given as a wedding gift in 1990. Recently, the handle on the frequently used 3qt saucepan broke. I tried to make do with the other pans, but quickly realized I needed to replace the 3 qt metal pan. Ebay to the rescue! It took several weeks to find the right pan (from 1990 and still in good shape), but I did it!

I need to implement this baby step process to get my no longer wanted sewing items listed for sale. Quit thinking about it and just do it. Elna Carina and extra parts listed for sale in one of the Elna FB groups. Then there’s the FW machines.

Baby steps….baby steps.

Slow and steady progress.
