Sometimes we are forced to do things we should've already done. I went into the garage yesterday morning and my freezer door was open.
Everything in the door had gone soft and the condition was spreading.
I didn't have the energy to go under the house and get the ice chests to load things in and defrost at that time. The sun was already up.
Anyone who knows me knows I don't mess around when I must get things done.
I made a plan for this morning. I did go get the ice chests so they were out and ready for this morning.
At 5am I opened the garage door and got my hand truck. I unloaded everything into the ice chests and a couple boxes and rolled the freezer outside.
My way to defrost is to open the freezer door and melt all the ice with the garden hose. Takes less than 5 minutes. I wiped it out with a towel, rolled it back into position, turned it on, and, reloaded it.
What I should've done but hadn't was to check for freezer burn so this was the time to examine and throw everything that I would no longer cook, AND I DID.
Compare this to quitting. You know you should've quit long ago but you've put it off.
Now is your time to quit and get rid of the dead wood before a smoking related medical issue taps you on the shoulder.
