4 February 2013 - 11:08The Waiting
Much like that Tom Petty song, the waiting is beginning to get to me. With 3 full weeks of VT life left to go, I am making lists and checking them thrice. A lot of the things require a lot of hurry up and wait, something I’m not that good at. I’ve been filling the time in between by dividing my worldly possessions into chuck/keep/sell piles. Then there is the bring/leave pile that is to be divined from the keep pile. the immediate needs vs what I can wait a few months for, or to be more specific, what fits in the 4runner.
It’s the sell pile I need to work on right now though.
People have a tendency to hold on to way too much stuff, and I am certainly no exception. I’ve really been making an effort to pare everything down to the necessities. Having the shop gave me an excuse to have excess bike baggage, and tomorrow I’ll have the list of sellables ready to present. I need to organize them into an easily accessed location, as everything is scattered. There are some goodies…
The youngling is looking forward to his first big road trip, so far I have a few roadside attractions planned along the way. This will be a great opportunity for me to do some fun stuff as a parent, and open a little kids eyes to the vastness that is this country. Niagra Falls, The Air Force Museum in Dayton, the Arch in St Louis, but then I’m coming up pretty blank. Does anyone know of any kid friendly things to do in Kansas City and points west? Gladly taking suggestions for things not too far off the 70.
Come back tomorrow to see what I’m getting rid of, there just might be something that I can live without that you might need.
