3.26.11 A Little Progress

 It has been a producive day. I had another person look at and test drive the car, and I sold all of my clubbells (like the pair at right). I sold my guitar, and also found a possible place to sell my drums. We are slowly getting rid of the things that can't go with us.

It's sort of depressing to let go of some of this stuff (especially the guitar) but it simply must be done. The only place I could store things is at my mother's home in Oregon, and I can't really justify the gas or the time to transport stuff there.

There is still much to do. I need to get rid of my king size oak bed, my 2 macebells, all of my kettlebells, and my other assorted fitness and grip training equipment (sledgehammer, sandbag, push-up board, etc.). The macebells and the other assorted stuff are sort of unique items, calling for a guy of a certain size, grip strength, and craziness, but kettlebells can be used by anyone. I currently have kettlebells from 8kg up to 32kg, and in the more common weights (12kg, 16kg, 24kg) I have pairs. I will make you a deal if you want to get more than one - as you can see below, they make a lovely set.

I haven't even thought much yet about how I am going to sell off/get rid of everything else. I get a little panicky when I think about trying to find homes for my 25 year collection of board games and RPGs, or all the books we both own, or my kitchen stuf, or the clothing that I'm not taking with me, or my bike, or my powertools, or...!

I'm going to go lay down now.


  1. I wish I could take the king bed off your hands, but you've seen our bedroom. The queen bed barely fits in there. I wish we had upgraded to a king when we bought our bedroom furniture, but it was not to be.

  2. I think we actually might have two buyers for the bed (one for the mattress and boxsprings, another for the frame). Everyday a few more things go away... :)
