They say hindsight is 20/20 but that's only true if you take time to look back.
I could take you through the litany of things that happened to us in 2019 but
I'm sure you would be bored to death.
One interesting thing did happen in the fall though . . . we ordered a 20yd
dumpster to get rid of excess junk in the garage and around the house.
When it arrived we said " that thing is BIG! . . . what will the neighbors
think!" I found the neighbors could care less about what we were doing . . .
but were VERY interested in whether we'd have enough room for "THEIR JUNK"!
I also discovered "why" it's so hard to de-clutter the house. It's because
you place all your "bad decisions" on display as you haul stuff out to the
dumpster. . . Like the wine cooler I bought a couple of years ago which never
got used. Oh, and the solid oak poker table covered with beautiful red felt I bought ($500) so we could play cards in the rec room . . . Never used it . . . not even once! OK! - we don't play cards. Bad decision!
And the Chrome Italian ice cream maker. Paid over $300 and used it once.
Problem was it only made 1 pint of ice cream at a time. Gave that to Goodwill
. . . I'm sure by now someone is regretting the $10 "they" spent for it and
are wondering how to get rid of it. Oh, there's more but I think you get the
picture. Yup, we filled the dumpster.
2019 in all, was a good year. Traveled a little, did a bit of remodeling and our
health is holding nicely. What more could you ask for?
