Chaos Reigns

If I am packing, tossing, throwing away, giving away and selling, how is it that my house is in shambles and I have only treacherous paths to aid my travel from room-to-room?  Maybe when I pitch it all out in the yard tomorrow for the sale, I’ll be able to see the floor again.

My yard sale prices are going to be very reasonable — as in:

“Can I have this?”

“Yes!  Take it with my blessing!  Do you need help carrying it to your car?”

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. As one who earlier in my life packed and moved far too much, you have my sympathy. Although, I must admit I envy your “adventure.” You have my best wishes.

  2. You forgot to say, how many bags will fit in your trunk?

    Good luck with the move and a new life. Funny that. Moving from Vegas to paradise. Does this mean you’ll have a new name?

  3. Oh, I LOVE those kind of garage sales! Now you wouldn’t happen to have the full series of the Sopranos, would you? I priced them on ebay – and at upward of $200.00 – thought I’d wait to find them in a garage sale! (May take me 10 years)

    I will say a wee prayer that your yard sale goes smooth. If you get a chance take some time to go see the latest Pirates of the Caribbean, you will not be disappointed. I went to see it today and if you want to read about my adventures at the Empire Studios 16 visit my blog for the low~down. You’ll also read about the stress test results.

    A Blessed weekend is wished for you as well as a Prosperous Yard Sale.

  5. I love yard sales, you’re going to feel so light and refreshed once all that stuff is hauled away. You did arrange for Goodwill to come pick up whatever is left didn’t you? I’d hate to think of you hauling anything back into the house.

  6. Moving always points out how much stuff we’ve accummulated. And it’s amazing how we can decide we really don’t need the stuff if we think we have to carry it somewhere.

  7. The happiest thing about all of this chaos is that it means your life will be decluttered. Makes for good feng shui, if you pay any attention to eastern philosophy/ideology.

  8. Mike — I envy me my adventure, too — and I am looking forward to it.

    Brian! — Nice to see you! Where have you been? How have you been? I have no plans to change my name just yet. Keep in mind, OC and I have actually spent less then 15 days in the same place ….

    Silver neurotic — way too late for that warning. Sorry.

    Jackie — I don’t happen to have anythng you want. Trust me.

    Bill — thanks. By now you know I already stopped by your site.

    Kat — I am looking forward to losing all the baggage.

    Nessa — the further the move, the more we chuck.

    Mumma — I don’t know about feng shui, but it makes for more freedom, for sure!
