Transitions: a Hodgepodge Post

I have my computer back. Everything seems to be working, except that all of my 2009 photos, save September, have disappeared. I hope they come back!

Here is what we did the last few days of summer:

And then school started with a blur.

It's crazy how quickly September rushes up on us, and now it's half over already and I'm still not in the swing of my new groove. No crafting. I'm determined to get the house tidied before I mess it up with bits of thread and fabric. Would it be embarrassing to tell you I've spent this entire week on my clothes closet alone? I read Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style, and two of Nina Garcia's books: The Style Strategy and The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own to help me with my closet purging. The books were entertaining (I own 35 of the 100 items!! That makes me 35% stylish!!!), but even after my purge I still feel like I have too much, and I'm still uncertain what to get rid of. You'd think I was a child of the Depression or something, because my mentality is I have to keep it, I might need it again someday! Ugh. I try to keep in mind people who truly need it right now, which helps me part with a lot.
I need to come up with a weekly themed post to keep me on blog track. My friend Lynn at The Little Red Hen does lovely Thoughtful Sunday posts, Crystal at Elsewhere Living does Lazy Sunday posts, and Bookwormbethie does Keeping it Weird on Wednesdays. Any good ideas for a weekly themed post?
