Dang, things just seem to keep piling up. I got so very much to do I will have to live to 150 to get it all done if not longer. See, the big problem is that I keep moving slower and the projects keep piling up. Time sure flies by, I guess I wound my clock just a little too tight but not tight enough to stop it - - yet. I start one project and notice another that needs done first and then neither of them get done at all. Now I know that none of my readers would ever let things happen like that, right? Most of my projects get done just good enough to get by until I have time to put the finishing touches on them. Yeah, that never happens, the finishing touch part.
One example is my office. I have been wanting to take the old carpet out and replace it with those snap together simulated wood flooring pieces. I have done that in most of the house and it looks real good and holds up well. So, what is the trouble you ask? To start with, I built a desk that two people could work at if needed. It was an engineering marvel. It worked great for me all these years of working on my own. When I moved into the new house, I had to take it apart and re-assemble it in my new office. This thing is 8 feet long and 6 feet wide at the widest part and has multiple levels. It is made out of three quarter inch plywood, a pretty good grade with smooth surfaces. I don’t know if you can even get that good of plywood any more.
This office of mine has become a storage place for all my stuff. No logical order, just piled in here. Dang, the more I talk about this project the more I think I will try to finish up some other easier project. Like the hot water heater (that is not correct, why would any one want to heat hot water. It is a water heater.) I never put the screen guards around the bottom where the flame sucks air and I have never put a cover on the water heater compartment. I am starting to hurt just thinking about all I have to do. Not a good thing, this getting old. Hey, that sounds like a good enough excuse to complain (and maybe not get it done). What do you think?
Now just have yourself a great day and try to do what you want to do to day, you hear? It is lotto day here, so I guess I may go buy the winning ticket and then pay someone to do my chores for me. Sounds like a plan to me. Guess I will hold off on the projects until I see if I win or not (grin).
