I had great plans to organise my stuff this weekend but, as usual, I barely made a dent. Everywhere I look there is stuff. Stuff I should sell, stuff I don't need, stuff to give away. And yet with the current unsettling situation at work, I can't seem to work up the motivation. Maybe I will need it later. Maybe I should sell it later if I lose my job. Maybe I should just give it away so that it isn't taking up space. Maybe I should wait and see if I lose my job because then I will have plenty of time to sort. Why waste my weekends now?
I slept in this morning and then got up to go to the post office and wait in line to get my certified letter back. This is the letter that I sent to my old tenants telling them I had their stuff. The line was long and I didn't like that I had to waste any more time because of my old tenants. This was a bad start to the weekend and it put me in a bad mood. I came home, ate lunch, took a nap and watched tv. I finally went outside at 3 and searched for any building materials that I could use to build a large shelf in my shed. With my reduction in pay and the draining of my maintenance fund, I no longer have any money for extras. Yes, I could reduce my mortgage repayment amount but I think I should try to pay off as much of the mortgage as I can while I still have a job.
Anyway, I found some 2x4 pieces of wood and a sheet of particle board in the garage. Unfortunately the particle board was too heavy for me to lift so that wasn't going to work. Later I found a 2 1/2 ft x 7 1/2 ft board in my mobile home which the former owner used to block a doorway. It is old and ugly and only 1/2" thick but I think it might work. I dragged my building material to the shed but then got stuck when I didn't have enough brackets and my nails and screws were too short. I'll have to think of something else or buy a box of longer screws.
I went back to sorting. I managed to empty 2 boxes in to one box. That is a start. The sun was going down so I went back to the RV and then remembered that I was supposed to look for my silverware in the mobile home. I had taken my silverware to the rental house but then the dishes that I bought came with cheap silverware so I thought I brought mine back. Now I can't find it. I am bummed about that. I have 4 dozen glass glasses but barely any good silverware. I hate to think that it was thrown away.
Well, maybe tomorrow will be more productive.
