Are we nuts?

I saw a squirrel chasing a nut across the street yesterday, and somehow it struck me as quite ironic.  I’ve admitted before that I hate squirrels (and yes, hate is a strong word), but I was too amused with the scene to think about putting the pedal to the metal and making roadkill out of him.  No, I would never really do that, and I found myself slowing down to let him cross, as I watched, amused.

Who am I to put the brakes on his goals? It was quite funny because this nut was rolling down the hilly street, and this poor squirrel kept catching up, before it would get away from him again.

What struck me as ironic is the fact that we are all – squirrels and humans alike – chasing something. It might be a dream, it might be a goal, it might be the basic pursuit of happiness. And when we find that “something”, whether real or perceived, we tend to store it away. 

But at what point are we content with what we have? Here it is, springtime, and this squirrel surely would have had enough nuts stored away by now over the long cold winter.  Yet, here was one more that he just needed to have, risking life and limb and bushy tail as he crossed the street in front of my silver four wheeled nutcracker. 

How much stuff is too much?

Where do we put all our stuff?

How do we keep it safe until we need to use it?

 

It reminded me of  when I was actively selling real estate, and buyers and their continued search for that one perfect house – chasing after each new listing and never making a decision.   The perfect house is out there, yet the search continues until they’ve exhausted themselves and their agent.  When do they stop?

It reminded me of myself as an active real estate agent and my continued search for the perfect buyer.  The perfect listing.  The perfect comission split and the perfect broker.  When do we stop?

And real estate sellers aren’t left out of the picture either. A seller who has stored all of his nuts into the equity of his home, only to find out that his cache is not worth as much as he thought. Where’d all that equity go?

I guess all of these thoughts would not have normally crossed my mind at the sight of a squirrel chasing a nut, but it just happened to be right as I was heading to yet another busy day at work at Fox’s Country Sheds. All my thoughts were on the busy day ahead, helping to run a custom storage shed manufacturing business and helping our customers to select the perfect storage shed for all of their nuts. Ahem…stuff. Thoughts of work, shed sizes, shed styles, “did I get the wholesale price lists out to all of our dealers”, “did we get the skylites on order in on time for the potting sheds”, is so-and-so ready for their delivery, etc., along with way too much caffeine in the morning, sparked this vision of us all chasing nuts.  And storing them.

….And thus, you might think I am one (a nut)…… but I’m not.

I’m just storing one.  Or two.  Or several.  Just like you are.

Maybe I’m not a nut – just a pack-rat. Where else can I keep my endless supply of garden hoses, rakes (at last count I think we have about 5 rakes), shovels, unused flower pots, sprinklers, opened bags of potting soil and peat moss…. you get the picture.

But, unlike that squirrely little gray rodent, my stuff is neatly stored in my Heritage garden shed garage.  If you ever wonder what type of shed or garage a shed builder has – this is it!  I lovingly refer to it as my “sh-arage” a cross between a shed and a garage.

After watching this squirrel and his amusing chase, I have to admit ~ I have a newfound respect for that busy little rodent.

But, as roomy as my Heritage Shed garage is – squirrels are not welcome!
