Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
I spent the time while my water was heating and my tea was brewing and then my tea was getting a little cool in clearing up the sinks and filling the dishwasher (after emptying it). I'd gone to bed tempting fate, ants, and possibly mice with all of the dishes and pots needing clearing up. I'm going to shift the rodent-catching focus to the garage for a while, and possibly the attic. I haven't seen anything, but that doesn't mean anything, as crafty as those little buggers are. The four I caught outside the dryer vent gave me a clue as to their comings and goings.

Time for some heavy lifting as things are moved from the car to the kitchen to the office. I found a smaller radio/CD player that can go with existing speakers and record player, but need to clean it up and then test it (and if it doesn't work, take it back.) Goodwill all the way. The old one is in beautiful clean condition but the CD changer turns but doesn't play. The power, when turned on, usually goes to the CD player even though the radio is what I've always had it set to. The cassette players still work, but I think it's time to completely retire this piece and not make it someone else's problem at the thrift store. To the e-waste bin it goes, probably later this week. I'll keep the peripheral record player, remote, and speakers.
