Someday, though, there will be less clutter. We'll have all our music stored on computer and Ipods, and read the latest books on a Kindle or some such electronic device. Oh, but wait--books and music are my favorite parts of clutter. In fact, I'm not sure I'd call them clutter.
But one part of our clutter is old photo albums, and this collection has not grown in quite awhile because we don't bother printing anything. We just POST it. And I thought CDs were so much more compact that LPs, but now we don't really need to buy those, either, if we don't wanna. iTunes has everything. And board games? I'd bet those sales have gone down, down, and down since video games became a national obsession.
Modern technology (computers) have freed up our files and shelves. What will we do with our new found space?
Well, look what happened: it took me so long to finish this little entry that now it's Mike's birthday! And speaking of stuff, he got a really big new (OLD) magic book for his collection, and he is busy consuming it as I type. He also got Jack-o-lantern smidgens in whatever dark chocolate flavors I could find, since they are on a fantastic sale right now. Mike adores a good sale, and this particular one has become a tradition.
There's always room on the shelf for another book.
