SJ on the Move

The List

Be it literal or ethereal, I think everyone carries around a list of things they'd like to get accomplished but never seem to "find the time" to get around to. That nagging doorknob that always falls off, that crown molding with the nail holes that haven't been touched up, or in our case - the dimmer switch that has been broken for about five years.
I don't know why it sometimes seems to take forever to get around to taking care of these little projects that don't seem very important, but probably do have a measureable impact on our quality of life when measured longitudinally over the years it takes to get them done. Most likely it's a case of other more "urgent" but likely more unimportant issues taking precedence. Or maybe it's the fact that it's a lot easier to sit down and watch an episode of Scrubs than to get out the toolbox. Probably a bit of both.
In our case, we finally fixed our broken light switch thanks to the help of my father this weekend. Which got me to thinking about my list - the doorknob, the crown molding, and oh yeah - that blog of mine I've been neglecting since we emigrated back to the U.S. a few months ago. So, my pledge is to devote more time to publishing the stateside adventures of SJ - at least right after I go catch just one more episode of Scrubs...

You still haven't fixed that doorknob?!

On our first date, Josh mentioned needing to fix the radio of his Blazer. (You may remember the Blazer.) We sold it four years later and the radio was still jiggling around.

Don't feel badly about the blog. I'm about 2 months behind on ours with no real prospect of catching up any time soon.
