    I know why I have clutter: I need a bigger house, or an additional house, plus a library. I know how to solve it, too: Win a lottery and buy another/a bigger house, and build a library. Perhaps I should write a book!

      That’s pretty much my plan, get rich, buy a bigger house, have a library. If there was a book about it I’d buy it! I spent yesterday decluttering some books though. I just stood there pulling them off the shelves and stacking piles on the floor. Place looked a mess! I’m trying to be liberal in what I get rid of, but I think I am failing. I did fill 3 boxes already though! If only there weren’t 6 more to unpack and fit on the shelves!

    Wanna feel better? I think I mentioned this before, but in case not: when I counted, several years ago now, I had over 10,000 books.

    See? You’re relatively normal!

    Ohhh… got a few books for my to read list now! That Family Manager one sounds amazing. I struggle with feeling like what I do is valuable. I always hate how when you go anywhere (doctor or whatever) they want to know what you do, where you work. I know on some level its to help ensure they can help you with ensuring you can keep doing what you’re doing, but it annoys the crap out of me. I started putting Home Economist in the block. And refer to myself as a Kickass Home Economist.

      Domestic Goddess is another option. I hate doctor’s forms, they never even read them! You can check a box “family history of heart disease” for example, then walk into the room and they ask “Any family history of heart disease??” You could write “Evil Overlord” as a job and it would probably never be questioned. Honestly, I have nothing against the term “Homemaker” because I feel like that is part of what I do. Making a house a home, I make our home different than all the other homes. To me, there is no shame in that. I understand the title struggle, especially if you had a career and are used to a title. I started this journey kinda young, so it didn’t matter to me. I did think of you when I read that section of the book.
