Paper Purgathon- Perch?

Nope, not a fish!     lol      Good guess, though!       Perch as in dwelling place.       I wanted cubbyhole- but, ya know the rules BBFFJ enforces so stringently!!        AND cubbyhole was NOT in my New Roget’s.    slob, humor, must be defective copy   (I think I got the one defective copy.      It was copyrighted in ’89, 1989, not 1889!      And I know for a fact that cubbyhole is older than that….  so I’m at a loss, as to how cubbyhole is missing.     Things that make you go “Hmmmmm.”      Rabbit trail ran out….  back to the post.)

slob, humor, challenge

Paper Purgathon- Perch, where I’m currently parked.

Okay, I’m talking about the cubbyhole in my desk.      It was messy!!          Melinda, I’m shocked!       Totally NOT!!

slob, humor, perch- as in cubbyhole     First thing was to empty it out, and dust.      Done.

Then sort thru the contents, and hopefully dispose of them properly.       (I’m hoping I don’t find anything radioactive in there!)

Nope!      Whew!       Just random bits of flotsam, and jetsam.        {When have you last heard THAT phrase??}

slob, humor, flotsam & jetsam     The pen was super easy to dispose of!  slob, humor, pen in place

Some of the photos, and an old calendar banished to the (overflowing) memories box.

slob, humor, memories  1 postcard, stamped to mail.      slob, humor, letters ready to go 2 photos put in envelopes to mail to cousins.  

The bulletin for contacting church- I put in address book.  Why- I’m a genius!

A few other photos photographed, to blog about later.

slob, humor, sad story      This is a sad story, you’ll hear about later.    Promise!

slob, humor, slob proof 1983      Pictorial proof of slobbery, 1983.     I did NOT know Dad was taking this!     My dorm room, shortly before graduation.      Look how skinny I was!     On second thought, look how messy the room was!       Ignore me!

slob, humor, blast from the past     See?   I did so sew!     1991, Alaska, at a Mother-Daughter Tea.        It looks like the theme was “Little House on the Prairie”!       No, I didn’t make the quilt, nor did I know its colors beforehand!

So, after everything was all cleaned up, here it is now.

slob, humor, neat perch

So much neater! and lighter! (of paper, and related items!)


Just like Declutterathon- Da-shred!

(Yep, it’s all starting to run together in my head!)

Queen Anne’s Day 4:  Poor Queen Anne was felled, but not from a massive paper cut, as I had feared.

Queen Anne’s Fellow Sovereigns:
– Viv, at GriefHappens, said she needed to be on this “like an over-sugared kid in a bouncy house”, and is joining with 30 minutes a day.🙂
– Jena, at All Round Better me,  is in for 60 minutes a week.
– Amy, at More time than money, also joining with 60 minutes a week.
– Grace, at The CFO MOM Blog, just told me she is joining, woohoo!

Sitting on the fence;
– Jen, at The Hidden Hoarder, is hard at work on her front porch, and hasn’t quuuuite decided yet.😉

– Gilly, at Anything Except Housework is no longer on the fence.   She had to withdraw from this challenge.     She is now full time care giver for her dad,  and mum, after an operation.   We’re here for moral support, Gilly!

  1. Melinda my dear, I haven’t had time to read this, I have just been catching up on Chris Waldrop’s posts and am coming to you next but demands are now pulling me back to my care duties. But at least I get to go out shopping now! Yippee!!! I will have a major commentathon tonight if I can stay awake – fell asleep last night messaging my sister (whose turn it is to be at home with her husband). I miss you all!

  2. Hi Melinda! I thought cubbyhole was a real word, always used it! I love the photo of you in your dorm room (you really do love purple!) and with your two little ones, a darling photo, you really could/can sew, wow! That’s the problem with going through old photos and letters, I stop to look at them, read them, smile, cry, sigh, laugh…and get nothing done! All the best with the decluttering my friend 🙂 ❤
