2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 33 trips to carry that many people.

PROCRASTINATION IS THE ENEMY OF FRUGALITY

I was shocked when I realized I posted about the broken spring in my recliner on November 26, 2012, http://wp.me/pKNzn-ke. My temporary fix was supposed to be for a few weeks or a month. I just kept procrastinating.

It wasn’t until November 22, 2013 that I made it up to Gilbreath Upholstery to pick up replacement springs. He recommended that I replace all of them.

The new spring is in the center.

When we put the new one on, it felt like a new chair! Unfortunately, that year took its toll on another part of the recliner as the broken spring kept poking it.

The broken spring put a hole in the board between the foot rest and the seat.

My New Year’s Resolution is…”I Will Not Procrastinate!”
