Lockdown


Howdy, after helping my brother build a goat habitat, I headed back to my mom's house in San Jose where I've pretty much been on a self-imposed lockdown. Why spend money and use up gas? Plus, I signed up for Netflix. Bad idea. I discovered their "Watch Instantly" feature which lets you watch 7,000 videos on demand. Twelve hours of my life gone. Today, I blew through 3 dvds.

And now it's time to get to work. I've started to get rid of the build up of 'stuff' around me. I hope to reduce my collection of junk and antiquated electronics by at least 50%. I found a drawer in my old room with a gallimaufry (sorry, I learned that word from another blog a couple days ago, it means 'jumble or hodgepodge') of knick knacks that have lost their sentimental value. Isn't it funny how we like to keep fortunes from fortune cookies? No more!

I've been running around my mom's house telling her that we've gotta get rid of things. "If we haven't touched something in 15 years, we don't need it!"

Tomorrow, I will leave the house. And this weekend, it's looking like San Francisco. Next week, San Diego? I dunno. The world is my oyster.

    Good luck trying to convince your Mom to get rid of junk. She keeps everything! Haha, oh, and I think you should come down to Irvine, and take a stroll through memory lane!!
