Breaking and Fixing

I’ve spent the first two days of the new year cleaning, putting Christmas decorations away, throwing away junk and fixing things.  And we’re trying to clean out the refrigerator with all the leftovers from all the parties.

We’ve had a spate of breakings and booboos this last month:

  1. Gary’s skin growth turned out to need more cutting
  2. Gary’s two computers got messed up with a virus
  3. Rachel’s computer, only 2.5 years old, quit computing (or even booting up)
  4. Christmas morning our microwave quit microwaving
  5. a small fan died
  6. my electric kettle would still heat but not turn off (can you say “house on fire!”?)
  7. New Year’s eve the vacuum quit vacuuming
  8. today my external back up drive quit backing up

So this is what we’ve done:

  1. Gary now has an almost 2-inch scar with 5 stitches in his forearm
  2. Gary’s computers had to go to the shop for 3-4 days, but eventually got back in working order
  3. The old computer that I won at a church raffle has now turned into Rachel’s computer
  4. We took some Christmas money and bought a new microwave a couple days after Christmas
  5. threw the fan away
  6. bought another kettle with the rest of the Christmas money
  7. Got up early and tore the vacuum cleaner’s rug beater attachment apart and cannibalized the motor from another old one to make it work again-yay!
  8. borrowed Rachel’s external backup drive

We also threw away Gary’s very, very old eskimo coat–why have we kept it all these years when the zipper teeth were hanging like a rope?  Also sent two other coats to the boutique.  It seems we continue to try to make space for Rachel and her belongings.

We’re also making computer backups and cleaning up address books.  You know, trying to start the new year off in a more organized fashion.

    We must have been hearing the same prompt!!!  Have been cleaning out closets and drawers – some shelves that have not been looked at in years.  Hate the job but love having it done…..Actually, I’m not done yet but even partial completion makes me feel good.  Blessings, Terry
