Clump #219: Clear one pile of papers from the party runoff. Day 15 of the 30-day challenge.
Oh, the terrible feeling of backsliding on this Clump A Day journey. With guests coming to our house yesterday, I fell into the old habit of corralling all the loose papers together and shoving them into a currently unused room, in this case our older daughter’s. This room had recently become the repository of basement stuff still needing decisions and/or to be given away. A photo of the whole room would be way too embarrassing and overwhelming right now.
The loose papers on top of the plastic containers were the first to go. I have to give myself a teensy bit of credit that I did get right to it today, rather than giving way to those infamous good intentions that pave the way to hell.
I took the photo below when my husband, our son, and I were climbing Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, in Norway. I had serious doubts about whether I’d be able to make it. My son said, “Just take it one rock at a time,” and then we both said “A clump at a time.” I wanted to remember the exact moment.
There were sooo many rocks.
My camera battery had given way by the time we reached the top. I bought this magnet later on in our trip to remind me that, unbelievably, impossibly, I had made it there …
one rock, one step, one clump at a time.
