I finish a week’s vacation tonight. The idea was to take some time and do some of the stuff around the house we didn’t have time to tackle this summer. After a week, I’ve finished about 25% of what I hoped to accomplish. I can see how people stay busy even if they don’t have jobs. The biggest job we got (mostly) done was a good cleaning of our cold room. A lot of stuff in there hadn’t been touched in the 14 years we’ve lived in this house. It got so bad that you couldn’t even walk into the cold room for the past couple of years. It feels good to get that done, but it’s also depressing. How did we accumulate so much junk? The other problem is that it’s not something you notice unless you go into the cold room. It’s like cleaning closets. When the door is closed, who even knows if it’s clean or not? Still lots to do around the house. I think I’ll have to work a little bit harder at tackling things on Saturdays and odd times here and there. Maybe I’ll even get to listing the tons of stuff I have to sell on eBay.
