Extra Extra Expedit Expedition

20150317_221510  Yes, you’ve already seen both these pix.  Deja vu, anyone?

Now that we’ve gotten the boxes off the top, (remember how hard that was???  I’m still having nightmares about reaching over my head!)

And Mama has organized the books, as much as she could in the time allotted;  we are gonna tackle the rest of the behemoth.

Yes, we took care of the blue bin already.

Time to get nit picky, and go for the gold.

See that material way on top?  That’s for my friend, Shirley’s quilt.  Nah, she doesn’t mind if I blog instead of sew.  It’s at least 6 months away from being cold!

So much random crap, I mean, stuff on these shelves!


Christmas ornaments?  Yup, don’t you leave yours out all year?  C’mon now, I know some of you do.  I’ve driven by your porches!  (I’m looking at you, Sweet Friend.)

BTW, I know I’m supposed to be de-cluttering, but don’t lay a finger on my Butterfinger books.  You’ll draw back a nub, mister.

But, I did take a deep breath, and donate the books.  That was traumatic.

And 2 boxes to Zoe’s Journey, a women’s ministry here in town.

A nice friend came over to help me.   She was firm, but gentle, making me throw away sentimental items, like cards, AND  DD2’s baby cap.  That she wore home from the hospital!!!

Now how ever will I remember that I brought DD2 home from the hospital when she was born???     Waaahh!

But, I do want to recover my home from slobbery, so….    I bit the bullet, and did it.

Thank you nice friend, for pushing me a little, to make better choices.

Looking better!

Looking better!

All the way there! YAY!

All the way there! YAY!

I’m exhausted, by all this extra expediting.  Time for a nap!




Update:  You know what??   I don’t miss a thing.

  1. Seriously, Melinda, now you’re getting rid of books? I’m afraid you may not be able to bounce back from this bizarre behavior! Stop while you can. Next, you’ll be tossing your computer, or your winter clothes, or your favorite perfume. I don’t know who you are anymore.

    • Nancy, it’s already too late. I don’t have a computer anymore, no perfume, no long pants, and only 1 sweatshirt.
      I don’t recognize myself either. Eerie looking in a mirror, and this minimalist skinnier woman is looking back at me.
      Come and rescue me from myself! Hurry!

      • Melinda, this is urgent. I’ll be over as soon as I can find my HazMat suit., just in case there’s a risk of contagion…I think my sister borrowed it….hang on. I should be able to find her sometime this evening…
