I am going to loose it. It is no wonder, I brought this all on myself. I really need to get to the bottom of this. If I psycho analyze myself I would say that I bought all these things because I thought they would make me feel better, surrounding myself with things I like, and fill a void that I have in my life or it could be lack of self esteem. Either way, I have a problem. I think it is a pretty big one. On the upside, by acknowledging I have a problem is the first step on the way to getting healthier. I feel much better now. I am still working on my problem of "saving for good", that has not been easy.
My Mom was here last week, I gave her my 7.5 Quart Oval Le Creuset, see that shows I am weeding out things. It doesn't matter that for some reason I did not like to use it. I don't particularly care for pots/pans/baking/roasting dishes that are oval shape. I am not going to work on that flaw. I put together a whole bunch of utensils that I have extras of and have been offering them all to everyone, then I will bring the rest to Goodwill. We are not including any olive wood in that give away.
I a hoping that this weekend the new owners of the butcher block to come to pick it up.
The kitchen is almost, almost, almost ready. It has been a long and arduous journey. Woohoo......
no worries Mike, I think I got this
