Yak Shaving, Taurus Pantries, and Oversharing

The other day I asked Dave, “I need to get something out of the bottom of the freezer, so can you come take notes of the inventory, and then we can go ahead and move it before the renovation?” This is yak shaving at its finest. The Urban Dictionary defines yak shaving as “Any seemingly pointless activity which is actually necessary to solve a problem which solves a problem which, several levels of recursion later, solves the real problem you’re working on.” Now the freezer is in the spot we set aside for it in the kitchen and it won’t need to be moved on Thursday when we have help. Yay!

Looking over the list, I’m reminded of something my friend said to me last night, “I’ve never met a Taurus who doesn’t have a full pantry.” Uh yeah, guilty as charged and a full fridge, and a full freezer. I even work hard to use everything up, but there is so much ABUNDANCE. I’m definitely not complaining though.
