Compulsive? Me? Naw…

(written a couple days before Christmas…)

So (I told myself) “I’ll get all these different tasks accomplished in my roommate’s absence.”

Fat chance.  (Why are a fat chance and a slim chance the same? – George Carlin)

To be fair, I did go to two grocery stores this morning, in preparation for the Christmas feast.  But I thought I’d be able to rearrange my bookshelves to accommodate more books, and clear the remaining boxes from my room after emptying their contents into precise spaces in the closet.

Fat chance.

I did get some of the bookcase rearranged, but, between the bending, kneeling and having to wear ‘Ed’ (the really big shoe) to keep my pain level at a minimum, work took it’s toll.  (Note-to-self:  realize that self-made projects expand to fill the time allotted, plus 25%.)  My back, knees and hands are now killing me.

But, I DID make a dent.  Progress, not perfection.

More tomorrow.

PS – I wrote this the next day.  It’s been three days more, still having ‘issues’.  Guess I’m officially old and out-of-shape!

  1. Oh me… I do understand. 🙂 When I moved here seven years ago, I just couldn’t cope with all the “stuff” I wasn’t using day to day, and dumped it into the “spare room.” I have always intended to pull everything out of there and arrange it nicely, tossing things I truly don’t need… but the years have just made it a bigger and bigger mess as I poke through looking for things I do need. Several times I’ve tried to organize it, but by the time I pull out even a little it’s time to put it all back so I can go to bed with an aching back and burning feet. If I had somewhere else to put it… might make some headway, but a small house is very difficult to organize once you’ve moved in!!

    And bookshelves!! I still have boxes of books that never got unpacked from the move. Simply no more room on the shelves, even stacked two deep. I really need to go through and toss some of them, I guess… but I can’t bear it. 🙂 I solved the problem sort of… bought a e-reader and buy most of my books that way now. Sure saves space!

  2. There’s a lot of that going around. You & I are about the same age, and have similar gripes. Hang in there, bro.
