Paper Purgathon- Pact

slob, humor, challengeIt was hard to come up with that first “P” word!

Here is my first mess to deal with, my desk.    Again.

slob, humor, receipts

And this is only since 11/9/2016

Yes, I know it was only _10__ short weeks ago that I de-cluttered that same area in Declutterathon Desk.       AND??         Your point is??      Slob here!!      IN recovery- not recovered yet, by a long shot!!

At least I know WHY this mess!      And where it came from!       Christmas shopping!!         At Bealls, the perfect place to shop!!          Clearance, and coupons, and discounts, oh my!!

Yes, I used a credit card.        (hangs head in shame)           I officially messed up.        But, we’re not here to discuss that!        Paper!        A Paper Purgathon! is today’s topic!

And so since they’re receipts, (two of which are 6 feet long!!),   slob, humor, 6 ft receipts!

(Any new readers asking why I don’t clean up a little first, before I take pix??      That would be, cuz I stay true to my name.       I’m a slob, and I show all the slobbery, in all its hideousness.)

why exactly are they just piled higgledy piggeldy on the desk?      Well, because they have surveys on the back, that enter me into $500.00 shopping spree!         And, if they just stay piled up there, will that enter you??          Well…… no…… but…..         No buts!     Get busy, enter them then toss!             Yes, ma’am, immediately ma’am!

Wow, she gets bossy sometimes!

Read, type, enter…..  rinse, repeat.       Over, and over, and over again.

Hey, that only took me 30 minutes!         For the Beall’s receipts, you mean.         Yeah, well…. yes.         How about the Taco Bell, and CVS ones??            Oh drat!       I have to do all those too????                     But I only promised 15 minutes a day!!           whine, whine, whine…..

(BTW: good thing I did this!     I found a Dr. appt notice, and a chit for blood work under all that!          Whew!        Dodged a bullet there!)

I’m making an executive decision.      Since I only promised 15 minutes a day, and I’ve already done double duty for today, I’m DONE for the day!!

slob, humor, checking bill- twice!

Update:  Got the bill, so I’m checking it twice!    (Yup, I really DID charge all that!!)

Queen Anne’s Fellow Sovereigns:

– Melinda, that’s me! is joining with about 15 minutes a day.
– 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!                                            – Barb, at Decluttering The Stuff, has gone through some of her papers as well.. but is staying far away from the scanning part (and I don’t blame her..)

Sitting on the fence;
– Gilly, at Anything Except Housework is waiting to see if we survive it all.😉
– Jen, at The Hidden Hoarder, is hard at work on her front porch, and hasn’t quuuuite decided yet.😉

Pecan Pie

For Thanksgiving, Mama made fresh pies, with love!     Oh so good!!      She made 2 pecan, 1 coconut cream, 2 sweet potato, and 1 chocolate.    Did you hear that, Katie??    ONLY ONE chocolate!!   My worst Thanksgiving fear came true!!     Oh, horrible day!        It was a fight to the death, between Bro. and me!!      (No, neither one of us died, but the pie sadly didn’t survive!)

Since there isn’t any evidence to show you on that one, I decided to blog about the pecan pie.      And, it is pah-cahn, not pee-can, for those not from the South.     (I’m so sorry for you, that you weren’t born here.)

Here is the way I brought it home, packaged so prettily by Mama.

slob, humor, pretty pie    Then, revealed in all its gooey glory!  slob, humor, homemade pecan pie!!

Nuttin else like a pecan pie, made with love by Mama!!       Except 2!!  

 

(Word of warning:  Do NOT ever research “licking lips”, unless you are prepared for some visual trauma!      Why do people have to be so nasty???? )

I only took 1 slice,

slob, humor, slice missing

What do you mean 1/4 of the pie is NOT 1 slice?? It certainly is!!

My breakfast:
