Easter egg hangover?

I did not get on my flight home.. it was full. I could have taken the jumpseat, but did not want to sit on it for 4 1/2 hours... I hate jumpseating... you can't watch a movie, and I always feel like I am in the working crews way... so I opted to just come home.. I am going to attempt spring cleaning again... That has been on my to- do list for weeks.... I read something in In Style magazine recently that featured a how-to guide on cleaning out your closets and home... Basically it said if you don't love it and haven't used it for a year or more, pitch it (or give it away).I somehow find this very hard to do. I will hold up a blouse, that I have not worn in 2 years, and ask the question, "do I love you? Have I used you in the last year"? Well how do I know if I am in love with it or not? What if it is like a relationship, with ups and downs, and I am just about to rekindle something with it? and what if after I dump it, I feel the way one does about 2 months after a break-up... missing someone, and crying over the good times, forgetting about the way seeing them clip their toenails made you want to run for the hills.

I have a real hard time with regret and nostalgia, so I think that is why I have a hard time spring cleaning.. maybe if I have a drink or 2 beforehand I will feel a little less inhibited and can actually make some progress.

In the meantime, I am suffering from an Easter Cream Egg hangover! I remember being little, and eating a good 6 of them at a go. Well I had one last night, and it was pretty challenging to get it down. It was almost painful in a pleasure/pain way. My teeth hurt and mouth watered. I actually had to lay down for a while after... I guess I am really getting old... not only are hangovers worse, but so are Easter egg hangovers...

Tomorrow I am still off, and Tuesday I am good for a 3 day... I looked in the computer and there are a couple of Hawaii's and a Japan that I could be good for. Want the Hawaii.
