Why do I do this to myself?

I’ve built two small layouts and worked on our club layout for years. I’ve wired and rewired as parts failed and needed replacing.

There were all sorts of problems in my last ops session – four failing Radio Shack toggles as detailed HERE. The first two (in Salinas) I replaced quickly. The next two in King City… I put off. For months. Every night I was too tired, something came up, whatever. For the last two weekends I’ve been meaning to do it. Never got to it. So finally, like Black Bart of Blazing Saddles, I drew a gun on myself and forced myself to do it.

This morning I woke up, realized that the first thing I had to do after my shower was work on this, and groaned.

It took about 45 minutes. It was easy. I just listened to Prairie Home Companion and it was no trouble at all.

I worry so much about everything.

Fixed now.

Time to start worrying about the next session.
