That's a lie. I actually like both rainy days and Wednesdays very much. It's just the combination, at this particular point in time, is less than optimal.
Over the weekend I finally spent a bit of time tidying in the basement, including cutting down a bunch of boxes and packaging a lot of cardboard for today's recycling pick up. As a result, I have a massive, overflowing box full of (wait for it) cut down boxes almost blocking the basement door.
Naturally, with rain forecast overnight I did the good neighbor thing and didn't put the cardboard out last night, sparing everyone the sight of soggy, deteriorating wood pulp this morning. Unfortunately, there was more rain forecast for late morning, so the cardboard is still sitting in my basement.
What do I get for this altruism? That particular storm system "fell apart". The next round of rain won't enter our area until late afternoon - around the time I will be leaving work, as a matter of fact.
This happens every.single.time I have a stack of cardboard for recycling.
I give up. It's time to find out where the Greenfield city dump is, and whether or not they take recyclables as well. Meantime, if anyone needs cardboard, of any size, drop me a line.
