Today was kind of funny. I had my sister stop by the restaurant where I left my favourite scarf-shawl thing (I was so excited to find after losing) and pick it up for me. She was coming to meet me to help keep me company while I cleared the clutter from my desk at work in the afternoon. When she arrived, she was a little bit huffy as she reminded me that my stuff was so precious, but 'Ahem, do you remember, Tara, the several things of mine you've lost and not gone back for?'
I do. I think a conservative estimate would have me weighing in at least 4 hoodies and/or cardigans in her debt. Thank goodness I'm such a good sister. But, it's true, now that I cannot replace my things as easily, I've stopped being as cavalier about how I'll replace them. But, I am also working not to cling to 'things' per say as a way to be happy etc. Ah, it's all so complicated. But in a nice way.
