I got fed up with things last night and threw a sheet over the TV set so I won't revert to watching DVDs while trying to do other things. Not that I'm not watching other things (hello YouTube) or overusing the computer in general, but I did manage to avoid the brain fog that overtook me since Sunday. It seems that everyone I know is feeling it so I don't think it's all me, we are blaming on the weekend time change now. I did get almost everything on my to-do list completed today.
I am using the ruse of gifting to move some things out of this house. My brother in law is a musician with a big CD collection, so I am sending him and my sister a nice big box of CDs that I think they will like. I am sending a friend a package of books as a late birthday present. Hooray media mail rates!
I am also starting to sell on eBay again, so I put a few things up this evening. I want to raise some money and make some room.
Yesterday was Donation Tuesday, that is, I gave away a lot of stuff without even planning to do it in a day. I gave that weird wire rack to my friend Virginia for some extra storage of her own, and made a pit stop dropoff at SCRAP, where I also found cheap and plentiful contact paper. I had nearly bought some new at Fred Meyer a couple days ago, but it the cheapest was $5.99 a roll! No!! I need it to cover some shelves in my linen closet, because I think they got a little oily with some of the medicines and things sitting on them for years. I don't want clean sheets touching that! I rounded off yesterday with a stop at Goodwill to get rid of the stuff I had left over. The day began auspiciously with a call from Volunteers of America, asking if I had any household goods to have picked up. They don't take furniture, alas.
I had a call from a guy yesterday about a job interview, who told me he was going to call me today to set up the appointment. He never called, but I wasn't surprised. If someone calls you to tell you they're going to call you, they have a problem.
