Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
Not a resolution, just a realization over the last couple of weeks that I've moved forward from the recovery stage after retirement and now I need to subscribe myself to enough activities and a part-time job to fill the general human social requirements that going to the job in the past fulfilled. Doing this without the toxic stew of bad management should be beneficial. I must have dreamt about getting a job last night because I remember thinking I'd been so tired from the first day at work that I overslept and was late on the second. Not sure where that job was. This is a cognate to the forgot-to-drop-the-college-class-and-now-it's-finals dream.

Late in the afternoon on Monday someone bought the antique tea pot I'd had listed forever on eBay. I had dropped it to within a dollar of what I paid for it (Goodwill) and was ready to pull it next month and take it back to Goodwill. Lesson learned - if it isn't a regular item on eBay that you can see routinely sells, leave it at the thrift store. It's time of year to do a few clearance listings since I seem to have a glut of some items I routinely pick up every time I see them.

And as a parting observation this morning, I turned on (and muted) the Rose Parade. The Rose Queen and court are on the screen now - and amazingly, the Rose Queen is wearing her glasses! You never see a beauty queen wearing glasses.
