Jack of all trades, master of none

Other, Personal 2 Comments

Today was a sad day for me… I sold the three kayaks I own.

I bought one and convinced my other half that I needed more so I could bring friends along on my adventures and maybe even someday him.  I got good use in Arizona-the driest of all places.   Several of us, including others with kayak ownership or borrowship, would casually experience different parts of the Salt River.  I was determined to bring them up here, to Washington, the wettest of all places.  I just knew I could use those kayaks-and again, I would bring others along my journey.

Eighteen months have passed and they sit… cobwebs and all.  They have never visited the waters here in Washington and Guilt started to set. It was a moment when he could say, “I told you so, ” since he did try and convince me to sell them before our big move.  It was time to say good-bye.  I am one who does not hold on to stuff!  If it isn’t being used, out with it!

I love to try different things, learn new things.  I often think this will be the THING that lasts forever.  But, then I realize that it isn’t.  and I sell it and move on to the next new thing.

    I feel your pain. Too bad we don’t live closer. I’d have kayaked with you. :) Darn.
    Just think though, now you get to experience “the next thing!” :) And… lots of extra space in the garage.

    I totally read this post last week and didn’t catch the title…that is so funny!! I came to read the blog post you were talking about and saw this!! I am glad we chatted tonight, it gave me a chance to share what i was feeling (is that weird that i shared it with you and not my hubby?) I hope you aren’t too annoyed by my exuberance!!
