Wow! I haven't been here since February. Time just goes by so fast. The economy is a real mess. It's a good time to give up stuff. Actually, I have been trying to give up stuff for a long time. The past is really hard to let go of...ideas are hard to let go of. Just being is not as easy as it sounds. I was homeless a couple of decades ago. It's amazing what you can live without. Now, I have too much stuff. I keep trying to get rid of it, but it doesn't seem to want to leave.
My husband, God love him, keeps bringing home more stuff. This man doesn't like to throw anything away either. I asked him one time, how many hammers does one handy man need. He says, "Well, it depends on the job." I bought him another storage shed because he was starting to pile things up in the yard...all neatly stacked and covered with a tarp. The stuff is still in the yard and the storage shed is filling up. He's trying though. Every now and then he will actually throw something out.
I think that I understand how my brother's ex-wife felt. My brother has a thing for cars, running or not. They had accumulate 5 cars in the yard, none of which ran. One day she got so fed up, she went out with a shot gun and filled them all full of holes. Then she told my brother to leave or his would be next. My brother prudently decided to leave.
I am not going to shoot holes in anything, but I am done with worrying about it getting stolen. I was setting up a new phone and Internet line and one of the questions was, " Do you have a burglar alarm on the phone line?" "No, I don't need one. I want to put a sign out that says, Please, take it all away."371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c
