I was thinking about getting a new computer. A new computer would be faster...but the old one seems fast enough. A new computer would have more memory...but I don't use all the memory of the old one. It would be more enjoyable to work on a new computer...???

I realized I couldn't justify a new computer on any grounds whatsoever--I just wanted a new one because I didn't enjoy working on the old one. And why not? Because the room is a disaster. There are boxes piled up in the middle of the room with a path around it so I can get to my desk, file cabinet, and the bookcases on every available wall. Well, a new computer would certainly fix that, wouldn't it? Right.

So I got rid of 2 boxes this weekend. They were holding books, which I sold to Half-Price books. Actually, I got rid of the contents of 2 boxes. One box I couldn't pull out because the whole pile would fall over. Tonight I'm going to pick out a couple more items off the pile and get rid of them.
