I have spent all day working to getting the move sorted out - It is hard work packing.

Packing for a move is best done by professionals because they do not care and have no attachment to various things.

Of course - the other side of that is that they will surely ruin everything!

It must be why I slept all day, someone else needed the energy

i have used professionals once, and never again. as usual I had the place under surveillance seeing them try to get into my safe, stealing papers, cds and other small items, did disgusting things with my property whilst showing a friendly face when I was around. This was the top moving company in the US. When I showed the eight videos of the gang to the managers, I was blacklisted. I cannot get that company again, why the hell they think I would want them, I do not know. IF I do it myself, or use trusted team members, I know it will be done properly, with nobody trying to get into my safe, filing cabinets or other sensitive things.

So, I spend time packing things, and thrwoing out anything I find that I have not been near for over a year. I have disposed of a lot of clothes, so unwise tool purchases, a few CDs and numerous kitchen toys. We still ahve too much stuff though. The Cabin is quite small, and we have a lot of junk.

Funny about that isn't it? I came home to a place where most of what I owned was destroyed - yet I have spent nearly ten years dropping things into the trash...

It is truly amazing what we can be convinced is actually USEFUL, isn't it?

I mean:
A salad maker, with complicated pieces and bits
A coffee machine, that takes longer than ever and has a tiny little pot
Vacuum cleaners that stuff up entirely, the very first time we use one...
WHEN THE ONLY THING IN YOUR HOUSE THAT DOES NOT SUCK, IS A VACUUM CLEANER - there are problems

Though of course - they were sold to us touted as "BETTER THAN EVER!"
I'm not kidding about the VAC. It had a supposed permanent HEPA filter, and it jammed up solid on the first try

Woola isn't full yet, and has been keeping my feet warm as I sit at this desk
I suppose you have to consider what you really want.


What is that she is munching tho? Oh! I gave her it.
Which is the more silly? The puppy or the master?


I hope you tell me stories about her, she is the kind who will be full of them

Tuesday is here---not as bad as yesterday......yet.

Sounds like the move is going as can be expected. You going to have a Moving Sale?

You'd be surprised how much people will pay for your "trash"----Just set the stuff out on an old tarp with a sign that reads "Make an Offer---All Items negotiable" We did this once and sold most of what we were just going to throw away. We didn't make a ton of cash, but enough to fill the gas tank----TWICE.

I bet he's offline on the road somewhere.
Interesting, I just realised there is a youngster trying to train himself to run (across the road from me) - and I have a treadmill that needs to go!

They have a lot more space in their house than I have in mine...

Check the bottom of my sig - I made hay before the sun even came up today!
~I am presently absorbing water/alcohol propellent in the form of 12 oz cans.

~It'll still be a while before that thing makes any noise, but the worst is over and DONE!

This move is showing me that no matter how experienced you are in not buying junk, quite a lot still gets through. When I retired in late 2011, I thought that the house and farm I had bought in Washington was to be the last, where I could live out my retirement in peace. How wrong I was.....

But, because it was to be the last home, I filled the many rooms of the workshop with stuff I may need in the future. I am now going through it all, trying to figure out what stuff I can ditch, and what I must keep. We lived here eighteen months and it looks like I must have bought some bit of junk every week.

Funny how that is. DID I cause you to go shopping more than usual? I remember the trip we made through SAM's, and then finding even more stuff in a dollar store...

I still have the small suitcase butane stove you recommended in Mira Mesa, and several cans of extra fuel for it.

Funny - I recall you telling me that the first home you buy will NEVER be the one you really want

It IS true. Once we have the first - we realise all the things we desire in a home

~And I have no use for a big house, a trailer behind a shed will do... But it needs to be a large shed
I like to play with big toys

BIG HOUSE - HARD TO KEEP CLEAN. Screw that...

TIME - so much we have, that we don't know
THINGS - so much we want, but what they really are
PEOPLE - and who are we? Are we the same?
Or is this just a game???
SCHOOL FOR THE DUMB...


"And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are SOLD!"

~I feel that, at times.

Having a big house serves me no purpose

You were right - I should ditch it!

But you were wrong about when...

I feel confident that it will last as long as I need it.


HOUSTON TEXAS however, we should talk about that.
Seriously.
