Time To Move On

It seems fairly easy to just say "shut it down" and move on to bigger and better things. But, really, it isn't easy to shut down, and the moving on to better things is really the hard part. After turning off the lights and turning in the keys mid - January, I haven't gotten much past "go" in the moving on part. I am still trying to get the last phone bill in hand so I can pay it. I think I am finished with all the rest of the "business" part of the business and now I am looking down the barrel of the "getting rid of the stuff" part. My garage is overloaded with old inventory and display pieces and my poor car is sitting in the drive for the duration. I wish it were as simple as just calling for the Salvation Army truck to run over and haul it off! But to do that, I have to take the final inventory and that means start thinking about "the taxes" and that is never a happy thought!

And then comes the inevitable questions of what to do next or whether to actually do anything next. I am stuck here too. While I think that I may want to keep myself in the game in some way, I haven't hit on exactly what that role will be. I think that I am just mentally exhausted by the whole experience not to mention things going on in other parts of my life. So, yes, it is time to move on. And yes, I will get it all done. And yes, I will get back to this blog when the dust has settled and the sun is shining bright in the sky again. In the meantime, I will just keep on keeping on and see how far it gets me. And just for some good laughs for everyone, I will post pictures of what the process looks like. Prepare yourself for a real shocker of a garage!
