There has been some movement in life recently. I think spring is about to sprung on me, and I'm looking at the mess this house has become. The worst problem is I am beginning to do what my brother had such a tendency to do. I am now a junk collector, or so it seems. I don't drag stuff in just because it was sitting someplace or someone was tossing it out, but when something breaks, and I think I can fix it, it doesn't go anywhere. And I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the 3 or 4 tons of good garbage that was left behind. Some will wind up in the burn pile, some more will go to Good Will, some I'm going to try to sell.
Then there is the shop. If I had a wood burning stove it wouldn't be such a problem, but I hate to toss any wood that I might be able to do something with. So, I have a big pile of usable scraps, and some new stuff. And all the tools I owned and more before moving here, plus some things he left. Sold all of my fishing gear a month or so back, I hadn't used it in 4 years and don't really think I will be doing any fishing in the foreseeable future. Then gave away the motor out of my S-10 that overheated on me and had been siting for about 4 years. And I've sold off a few odds and ends over the last 6 or 7 months, but hardly a dent in this mess.
Anybody got a spare thermonuclear device? That is the only way I can see to get things cleared out here. 'Course there wouldn't be much left for a few miles around, so better rethink that solution. Better I guess to just make my mind up to get it cleared out some other way, or pick up and walk away from it ALL.
I could go on about it all for hours, but that doesn't get anything accomplished. But then neither does running in circles when I do get started on it. I've tried the pile method, but all I end up with is piles and more piles. Then the butterfly syndrome sets in. Ooooooops, there went another one. Butterfly of sorts. I do get side tracked a lot by the way. And CRS is beginning to set in. Somehow I get the feeling my life’s work is pretty well set for me. And sitting here is just another way of putting it off a little longer.
There are some things in the sink in the kitchen that I need to get done, a couple of things to move from one pile to another and hide, and I didn't get my bills out to the mail box in time to be picked up today, so have to run into the post office to drop them off.
