Today I am determined to clean out Alex's room. I was determined to do this yesterday, but then, well... there was a marathon of House on TV.
If you are like my mother you might wonder why I am cleaning Alex's room. The truth is Alex is a pack rat. She is a keeper of things. If it were up to her she would hold on to all things everywhere forever and always until the end of time. Sadly, at this point her room is much to small and holds much to much. She has moved on from a lot of her toys and grown out of a lot her clothes and with the approaching start of school it seems to be time to clear it all out. This new year brings a new grade and a new school. Middle School. Its seems appropriate then that one should have a fresh, clean room in recognition of the largeness of the passage.
