I Should Join Packrats Anonymous...

Well, I should join Packrats Anonymous, except that I'm admitting publically that I'm a packrat, and where's the anonymity in that?

Do you know how HARD it is to throw away papers from your high school years? I've kept these things for more than 15 years and today I finally threw most of the stuff out. (Yes, I still kept some of the stuff.) What's more is that I know there's a bunch of things in my filing cabinet that I should also throw away. Perhaps I shall do that a bit later today. Or next year. Or sometime before I die. *sigh*

I admire people who aren't packrats. I mean, I *know* that I'll probably never need my notes from high school physics again. But to throw them away???? I must be strong, however. I must throw things away. Well, not everything, of course. But most of it - yes!

I suppose I should go back into the Reading Room and work on another box. And then go through my bookshelves and get rid of the science books that I no longer need. (A trip to the used bookstore is in the cards.) Wish me luck! Hell, wish me strength!

*grumble* *grumble*
