Earlier this week, I was cleaning up around the rv (the after-holiday piles were getting to me!) and packing things into a box. Was this box headed for Goodwill? No. The plan was to take it to my storage unit! I figured I was paying for the unit, what's one more box in there, right? These were items I didn't want taking up space around here, but that I didn't want to get rid of... Um, really? Have I learned nothing over the past year?
Thankfully, I have learned something. I caught myself before I loaded it into the car to drive it up there. I decided that adding to my storage unit was not something I was comfortable with. Honestly, I wish I had easier access to it so I could go through some of those bins and get rid of more stuff! So why would I add to it? What was in that box I'd planned to hide away? Mostly holiday-related items including Reilly's Halloween costume and a few other Reilly-related holiday items. Yes, that dog is SPOILED. All lightweight items that are easy to store here in the rv until next fall. I have an empty suitcase in one of the storage areas that would be perfect for the few seasonal items I do want to keep and still have room for my winter coat once the weather warms back up. And really, who knows where I'll be next Fall anyway. For the moment, the box sits under the edge of my bed until I have more time to deal with it. A little time might make me rethink a few of those items too. =) Work has been cutting into my down time the past month or so, but that's changing too.
I finally hit the wall. Too many 80-hr weeks makes for a very tired coder. Put a fork in me, I'm done. They've made a swap in what project I'll be getting for OT as well and that makes it even less enticing. So, I'm plenty paid up on my rv and my savings account is healthy... and I need a break. They may not be thrilled with my cutting my hours back, but I will be. =)
