    7.3 Ahnanimus, there are storage units in the next suburb but you have to take it there. I'm only saving stuff thats at least 50yrs old as I wont be able to replace it easily. We have a bulk waste collection day coming up, so Ive lots of stuff to put out for the collectors & that will free up some tubs. Its a great system where by people drive past & take what they want or can sell. Its like a convoy of sidewalk shoppers. The county advertise the day so collectors are ready. Oh goodie..a sing-a-long... 🎶Talkin' to myself and feelin' old Sometimes I'd like to quit Nothin' ever seems to fit Hangin' around Nothin' to do but frown Rainy days and Mondays always makes me glad (get me down) 🎶

    A 67 (3.71) for today. Lee, while they may not have PODS where you live, there are other companies that offer the same service. Maybe Google this type of service to see what they offer where you live. What they do is to bring a large container to your house, drop it off where ever you tell them to, then you store whatever you want in it, and lock it every night. Once you move, they will come and pick up the container, and either deliver it to your new house, or to a storage warehouse for storage, until you are ready to have it brought to your house. Think of it as being similar to the trailer part of a tractor trailer...the doors to it can be locked with a padlock, and these units come in a variety of sizes to accommodate whatever amount of items you need to have stored. I can imagine how stressful it is to have to move into another house, but having to decide what to keep and what to get rid, makes the move even more stressful. By just placing most of your possessions into a unit like this for now, then deciding later what to keep and what to get rid of, would lessen the stress levels.

    I had an interesting reminder about being happy with what you have. I am often richer than I realize. I have been "adopted" by a group that races in triathlons. I join them on their training rides and those are like my race days. It takes my all to keep up. I have become stronger and learned skills and technique. I have discovered that I am a strong downhill rider. That seems humorous but apparently my weight, size and bike setup allow me to gain a great deal of speed going downhill. I have been put in the lead on the downslopes and the other cyclists will draft on me. If the slope then changes to going up, I drop and they use the momentum I helped them gain to improve their time (if they are doing time trials). I am also considered pretty reliable in the straightaways and participate in the peloton. It was noticed that while I am not particularly fast or a great sprinter, I have a steadily consistent output over a long period of time and don't tire or flag. Kind of like a Mack truck I suppose I get waxed during climbs though. Today, I encountered one of the riders running while I was riding and we took a break and talked story. She can kick my butt in a climb, no ifs ands or buts. I commented how jealous I was of her and she replied that she wished she had my power and speed on the downhills and flats. I couldn't believe it! Lately, I have been doing more climbing. I realize that, while I may never be a great one, I can always improve upon what I can do. I shared that thought with Ellie (the cyclist) and it was like an "oh duh!" moment. I rode away humbly reminded to be happy with what I have and what I can do. While I envy others of their skills/strengths, I am also envied.
