This page is definitely still a work in progress. However, the plan here is to list out the major things we need to address, and knock them off the list one by one.
Stuff to Deal With
Fixing My Motorcycle
My motorcycle has been MIA for a while now (it broke down just before Don’s first heart attack), and is cluttering up the garage. It needs to be fixed and put back together!
Don has had a storage unit (it’s huge – 10×20!) with all kinds of things in it (Star Wars memorabilia, anyone?). We desperately need to get this emptied out and/or moved to a smaller unit, as it’s very expensive (around $200/month) to keep. Update 10/2016: We are making progress, have sold several items from the storage unit!.
We have a TON of computer parts, half-built computers, and endless wires leftover from Don’s days building and refurbishing computers. They’re cluttering up the office/den, and it’s time to get them sorted and moving on!
Stuff We’ve Gotten Rid Of or Dealt With
We actually *had* two motorcycles that fell into the “project” category. Woo-hoo – we actually sold one of the project bikes in early October! So progress in this area, but we definitely still have to get to the other project bike.
We bought a boat a few months ago to fix up and sell. For a variety of reasons, we haven’t gotten around to fixing it up yet, so this is on our “get rid of junk” task list. Update: it turns out the hull wasn’t worth saving (we knew that might be the case going in, and paid accordingly!). So, this weekend we took the hull, minus all usable parts and the fuel tank, to the local landfill. So, I’m calling this one done – even though we still need to replace a few parts on the trailer to make it usable, and finish re-building the engine to sell.
This is a car that went into storage a couple of years ago because we weren’t using it, and now it’s really just needing to be sold. I’m adding it here to make sure we make progress on it! Update: it has new tires and a new battery; it’s ready to go! We’ve listed it for sale, so hopefully it will find a new home soon.
