I continue to run into things that ask the question, "Why are you keeping me?" and I throw them out or put them in the goodwill pile. There isn't much right now that is suitable for freecycle. I often wonder when a person offers a thing like a three-ring notebook on freecycle. Is anyone so hard up they will drive - using gas - to someone else's place to pick up such an item? I tend to offer only things I think a person would feel are worth coming out for.
I am seriously considering offering my television when I move. It's nearly new and nice but so heavy! But am I ready to pay $1000 or more for a flat screen? There are a lot of other things I can get for that $1000. Still. The thought of hanging it on a wall or placing it on a small table...tempting, tempting. For now, though, no. Later.
Speaking of the new house. Yesterday I got a catalog in the mail from Eurway. I had not heard of this furniture store before. It's terrific! Modernist-style furnishings for really reasonable prices. The main worry I have is the shipping cost. The only stores they have are in Texas and one in some other state. When I know I will have a new house I can find out if shipping is going to be impossible in cost. It's really a similar situation with Ikea, except that I can rent a van or truck in Burbank and haul that stuff up and that would be reasonable, I'd think. Come to think of it maybe it would be possible to do the same thing in Texas. Fly Southwest, rent a truck.
For someone who had very little sleep last night - another bad dream - a man was going to kill me, I ran and hid, and felt sure he'd find me - I am doing surprisingly well. I'm sure I'll crash a little later. But for now, run with the unexpected enthusiasm, I say.
