After more thought---This is an important thread- Particulary, for those us of who THINK we're retired or semi-retired. I think we forget that each time we come home with a "bargain" or that special "find" that its ALSO a burden of sorts. It carries with it "just one more project" to fill the day.
Exactly the way I feel sometimes. I find a new project at a price I can afford and bring it home or someone wants me to work on their stuff.. Then when I get it home I look at the already too long to do list and try to figure out why I accepted more work and the stress associated with it. Right now I have a total of thirteen "projects" on the to do list between what is in the garage and at my son and son-in law's. And if someone came and asked me to do another one I would probably add that one too. I end up jumping from one to the other and sometimes even get to finish one.
Most of the problem for me is not being willing and able to admit that I have lost a couple of steps over the past 20 or so years and I don't believe there is a cure for the disease, so when I can't carry on anymore someone else is going to have to clean up the mess.
This thread has at shown me that thankfully I am not the only one with this problem.
