patable2010: (Saxon)

Spent six hours waiting for my car to be finished at the mechanics but at least now I think it's good to go for a good long while. They fixed a plug-wire situation that hadn't stranded me yet but the symptoms were beginning to show themselves in the rough idle and herkiness. The underpinning connections were worked on too which potential problems were anticipated last year when I first got the car. I really appreciate my mechanics as they don't invent things to do before they really need to be done and give me a timeframe to think about for the future. Right now things are "smooth as silk" according to them and I'm glad.

Back at home this evening I went through a couple boxes out of the storage room and sorted things to be put away elsewhere, sold at rummage, given away or discarded. One thing I found was a print-out of an e-mail I wrote in 2000 in response to an article I read then that still applies although the link no longer works, darn it.


"Before I joined the SCA I was organized in all areas of my life. I had a great amount of fabric stash for my quilting that was and still is beautifully organized. (I just can't get to it now because of the piles in front of it.) My personal finance records were organized. My mundane clothing storage was organized. That came to an end roughly six months after I started playing in the SCA.

In the two and a half years I've been in the SCA I'v been purchasing an amazing variety of 'stuff' and there is very little organization. Well, the completed garb is somewhat organized. And thanks to my sister the feast basket and the camping gear is somewhat organized. However, all the 'stuff' for projects and gear to be made up furnish piles between me and anything I own that is remotely organized, if it's even still there (I sometimse wonder about that). This fills my bedroom and sewing room. My sister's 'stuff' fills the recreation room and laundry. You may well wonder where we spend the mundane free time... there isn't much of that either.

This is a wonderful article and serves to remind me how comfortable it is to be so organized. However, my little house ran out of organizational room prior to this new habit and I need to find space somewhere. The his and hers lounges in the little runabout spaceship in "The Number of the Beast" springs to mind."


The situation was not improved when everything in my sewing room and the rec room was packed into the guest room four years ago while several yards of basement foundation was rebuilt. The current plan this year is to go through and sort everything to prepare for a rummage sale next fall. Wish us energy, perseverance and luck.

I am re-motivated to complete the process...
sort for rummage and price
set up sewing room
set up guest room
set up garage storage
