I inherited my grandfather's record collection, so I enjoy converting his old records to audio files so I can enjoy them on my ipod. I had to clean off my desk so that I have room for my record player. It's been clean for four days, and I have converted 18 records! I love hearing music I've never heard before, and this has made the torture and agony of cleaning my office worth it!This is the kind of new idea that is so important to me! It's embarrassing but without the kind of big payoff you mention, it's rare for me to look for a new list of chores to do. But now I feel as if I have permission to get something out of it. I don't praise myself much. I don't enjoy getting things clean very often. When you wash dishes, it's just a prelude to getting them dirty again.
