Eileen and I have been cleaning the house with some toxic sludge. It’s ridiculous. We wouldn’t be doing any of this if we were’nt moving out and renting to someone else. But that’s our dysfunction. We’re dirty people. Once things are clean, we like it, but for both of us the process of putting on rubber gloves, pulling shirt collars up over noses, squinting and turning slightly away as we spray on the Easy-Off or Lime-Away is thoroughly unpleasant. We’d much rather talk about what we need to do rather than do it. What’s up with that? Why do we so often get excited about planning what to do, but not so excited about doing it?
We move out in three days or so. We leave for Ecuador in three weeks or so. I’m pretty excited. Hope that’s not a bad sign.

  1. I know what ya mean. I have planning about 5 different projects for my portfolio, and the hardest part is getting started on them. So, what IS up with that?

  2. I’ve found that people seem to enjoy much more the ‘potential’ of a situation, the reason being that the actual action may not end up being what we had envisioned or expected. Does that make any sense? Did I spell that word right? I too have a ton of ideas on projects etc. but struggle to begin them. Right now I am going to pledge to ‘just do it’! Hey that would make a great ad slogan for something. I also think that in going beyond that potential state one may actually find the secret to life. What do you think?
