Brick wall

With the completion of my room I've settled in a day to day routine of grabbing a box from the attic, sorting it, listing stuff, storing stuff and putting the empty box back into the attic. However, I have run into 2 problems.

1. I've only just started and already 3 cabinets are brimming with stuff. I will have to be much more stringent and get rid of a lot more stuff, if I want to have enough room for the future. More stuff sold is better as those funds are going straight into my new mat fund. Sofar, I'm focussing on selling books and magazines. 5 euros here, 10 euros there, but it all adds up.

2. My mood has turned sour, with more dark thoughts then the average Chaos Marine has. As much as I keep telling myself things will work out and I just need to keep going at it, dark thoughts keep drifting through my mind and I can't seem to purge them. Even worse, now that I have clarity about my knee it has gotten really bad and I've lost my temper a couple of times this week and gotten rather abusive (verbally) with Kim. I won't stand for this so I will be making a appointment with my doctor tomorrow to explain the problem and get a referral to see a shrink. And have some good talks, provided my insurance covers it. Or the insurance of the guy that ran me over.

Is it all bad? No, of course not, I've been going at it every day and I have cleared another 3 boxes today. I just need to put up some markers telling me what cabinet will be for what items, and mark the drawers accordingly so I can see what goes where. But I'm sticking to the "take 1 box down, and don't get a new box until you have finished this one completely" mantra

I'm also picking up a large box of Games Workshop scenery, new in the box. I spent some money on it but nowhere near it's real current value, so I will keep a few bits that I don't have yet and sell off the rest to break even or even a small profit. I should also stop visiting Oldhammer. That place will be the death of me (and my wallet).

Dammit, all I want to do is grab my tools and get building again and relax, but every box I grabbed sofar conatined everything but my is almost a consipracy!

Hope to have better news later this week :)

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Sounds like a bitter pill you have to swallow.
    But you will hopefully feel a lot better once the last box is sorted.

    1. It will be some time before I finish the last box though, so many!

  2. I hope everything goes better very soon! Knee problems aren't nice, I can speak about that.
    I also hope that you soon find that box you need to get going again!
