To the Nunnery!

This weekend I'm throwing open all the windows and cleaning. And de-cluttering. Someone was telling me about a convent here in Nashville where all that each novitiate has is a white iron bed and a chest of drawers. No belongings. No pictures. Nothing. They've taken a vow of poverty. And they all live together in one big room. And everyone was like, "Oh my gosh how do people live like that?" And I was thinking it sounded pretty nice. So obviously it's time to lighten up or I might go join a convent.

I didn't know you were in Nashville! I was just on the Trader Joe's site (wishful thinking that they might be putting one in near TX) and saw that a location was about to open in Nashville. LUCKY.

The hubbie is from Knoxville. We're actually headed up to TN this weekend.

GASP! Really?! I have been wishing we'd get one for years now. Thank you for letting me know!

Have a good trip to Knoxville. :)
