Bristly Brush

This is a brush.   

slob, humor, hair brush

Yep, it’s a brush, alrightey!

                                                                        A bristly brush.

slob, humor, bristly brush

Yup, it’s a bristly brush, fer sure.

Know how it feels to lay down on a bristly brush??

I do!!   I do it every night!

I somehow conveniently forgot this part about being bald- it starts to grow out!     Then, suddenly all the glory is gone!       {Uh, yeah, I whacked off my hair again, right before we moved into our newest place.     I was sweating overtime!!       I needed a summer haircut!}

This is my head on brush, a bristly brush.

slob, humor, head on brush

My head on brush. Yee-ouch!!

Photo credit to DD1.     Thanks honey, for helping!!

The hair on my head is soft, and fine, when it’s grown out.          When it’s 1/4 inch short, you could mistake it for the wire bristles of a grill brush!!

Pat my head, and it feels like thousands of millions, of tiny, tiny, finest gauge needles poking me in the scalp!!

And PPJr loves to do that!        Both to me, and DD1.             I know toddlers love to explore textures, so we enjoy watching her face, and listening to her giggles!!         The pain of the millions of pin pricks, not so much!  

Then, when she picks up the self-same brush, and tries to brush my hair, with the backside, my heart melts!!    

slob, humor, PPJr melts my heart

Does she ever!!

 She.is.so.adorable!!              When she tries to brush her own hair, and has the brush turned correctly, and it gets tangled, suddenly all smiles are off!!          Her pain is not bearable!!         I get that naughty hair brush outta there, ASAP!!

All smiles restored, time to go back to “brushing” my head, and the whole routine begins again……..

 

De-clutter, De-claim, De-cline

I still have no name for this series on this house.  Ack!    It’s buggin me!

Anyways, going in.

Will this be a de-clutter project??

Or a de-claim??     I wanted to say de-shuffle, move to a different place.         But my alliteration muscle kicked in, and just.wouldn’t.let.me.do.it.

Or a de-cline project?? IE- trash it??      Or would the de-claim part be the trash it part?

I was thinking of claim as the staking out of a plot of land, as in gold mining, etc.       That’s why calling moving to another place,  is de-claiming, or do I prefer de-shuffling, after all??        

Well, really Melinda- de-shuffling would be NOT moving it, right??       Make up your mind what you’re doing!      Then go do it!          Sitting here waffling about names is called- Procrastination, of the highest order!!

Ya got me there!!           Okay, waffle no more- going in!!         Btw- since I’m not gonna be a waffle anymore, what am I??        A crepe?        A pancake??         

GO!!

(sound of scurrying feet)

Oops- one more thing!     I’m gonna be in the first room of our bathroom today- the sink room.       Alternately- the skylight room.

Ok, pix taken.     Downloading them as we speak.    And then……                  On to the purging, right??                 Uh, actually, noooooo.                  And why not, if I may ask? Because I’m hungry, and haven’t had breakfast yet!!           No energy!!           Fine! Hurry up and eat!                Yes ma’am!           Immediately ma’am!

Gratuitous selfie of breakfast.

slob, humor, keto breakfast muffins

My yummy breakfast muffins!

OOPS!!      I have 2 of them upside down!          Trying again, gotta show the best side, ya know!

slob, humor, keto muffins right side up

Now there’s the cheese!

Wait, is it a selfie, if I’m not in it??       What do you call all those shots of people’s food?   Foodies??           Nope, that’s the people who love food. 

STOP and just eat the muffins already!!

Ok, here’s me eating the muffins….

slob, humor, slob sloppily eating

BTW: please don’t worry.      They are Keto muffins.       And no, I didn’t bake them, DD1 did.              Any more questions??        They’re getting cold!

Sink room, from left to right.     I’m not going to photograph the wall of cabinets behind me, what’s the point??       Doors, lots of dark, dark wood doors.

slob, humor, mirror shot

Okay, so I lied! Here’s a shot of the cabinets, thru the looking glass.

Also, do my bare shoulders offend you??       (I so want to figure out where to find that enigmatic poll button!)

So, I picked up the play broom, and returned it to girls’ room.       (Less than 4 ft away.)

slob, humor, broom put away

Broom be gone!

Then I did a load of laundry.      No visible difference there.

Annnnnd then I got distracted, went to my room, and began de-cluttering there.         Well, I don’t live in the bathroom!       Neither half of it!

So ends this episode of De-clutter, De-claim, De-cline.

Come back tomorrow to find out if I ever get a “roundtuit”!!

slob, humor, roundtuit

Let’s see if I really do??

Wandering Wonderings

Okay, here we are at the beginning of a new de-cluttering series!!       YAY!!                 Don’t you just love the smell of a new de-cluttering series in the morning?  

slob, humor, smelling new series in morning

Me too!

But, I have a problem.          What do I name it??

Other series names have been suggested for me:

https://purpleslobinrecovery.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/declutter-declaration/  by Anne, (Queen Anne to her subjects).

https://purpleslobinrecovery.wordpress.com/2016/11/29/paper-purgathon/ by Anne again.

https://purpleslobinrecovery.wordpress.com/2017/01/06/seven-seconds/ was not suggested to me, but was inspired by a post from Ashley.

I was thinking about naming it after this house, which PP has already deemed “My 8 house.”      Guess why??

slob, humor, our new house number

Our house number, now.

But when I tried to alliterate eight, all I could come up with, was Eight Eighths, and nothing beyond that.      1 title does not a series make.

So here I sit, unable to even begin writing, (I know, what have I been doing for over 100 words??) cuz I’m blank on names.

Maybe you should read the dictionary, or thesaurus for a while, to get your juices flowing?

But I don’t need definitions, or synonyms, nor antonyms, I need alliteratives!!       Now I’m wondering,  “What would you name a book of alliteratives, anyway??”      I realize that’s off topic, but I wonder!

Btw, I had to Google the word alliterative, just to make sure I was spelling it okay.           And you’ll never guess what the 11th result was??!!

Merry Monday! Lookee there, I DID find another alliterative title! Go

Hairy Hare

Nope, no bunnies here.  Sorry if the title “Hairy Hare” led you astray!

Oh, ok, just for you.

slob, humor, my rare rabbit photo

Here he is: my rare rabbit.

We’re talking about my hair, once again.

Sick of hearing about it??       You’re dismissed!

Time for a summer haircut!!          This is the shaggy, gotta go look.

slob, humor, shaggy haircut

Shaggy- no relation to Scooby Doo!

Let’s do it!

First run thru:

2nd buzz thru:

What bald spots??

Huge hairy hunk o’ hairball, here!

Yeah, so it’s a little choppy in the back, you ever try to shave yourself, while taking selfies??        Not as easy as it looks, let me tell ya!

slob, humor, haircut

Tiny lil Alfalfa thing going on! (Little Rascals reference)

And it would still look like that today, except I was at Sweet Friend’s house, and when I walked by him, he burst out laughing.       He said, “Here, let me help you.     Even tho it would be really funny, I can’t in good conscience let you go to church that way tomorrow.”

So, he tidied it up for me.     And the people at the new church didn’t even blink.       Though at prayer time, I think I heard the sweet little saint behind me pray for “that woman with the cancer, bless her heart.”

 

Chewed Cheeks

When you first bite the lining of your cheek, then it expands to triple its square footage, inch-age??

slob, chewed cheek

See how the cheek takes over??   Not PP’s mouth.

Alternately, teeth grow to be 5 times their size.

These were so cute, I couldn’t decide between them, so had to use both!

Try blowing your cheeks out, while talking or eating.  It’s very very difficult!

Or, sticking your finger in, to hold the cheek away from the terrible teeth, to eat , is difficult not to mention messy and rude.

slob, painful cheeks

Holding the cheek away from the pain,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cheeks chewed into chunks, this ever happen to you?          No?               Only me then. <sigh>

 

And right now it’s happening to poor PP.     Darling girl can’t even eat anything cuz the inside of her cheek fills her whole mouth!   At least I’m assuming, from the horrible screams whenever she gets brave enough to actually try taking a bite of anything.

 😦

No wonder she refuses to eat……

Poorly Pudding Pop

Today marks a full 7 days that PP has been sick.    😦

Poor PP, feeling poorly Pudding Pop. 

PPJr was sick the first 2 of those days, so you can imagine how full my hands were!!     I literally had my hands, and arms full of sick babies.      Oh, excuse me.     I’ve just been informed by PP that “I not a baby!”

So, for 2 days, we 3 sat in the recliner, gently rocking, sometimes snoozing.     When I started to doze off, I would be rudely jerked awake, by a scream, or by crying.            

Or both.      Any of which is preferable to an elbow in the eye!!

 

No visual, since neither baby would take a selfie, and I had no hands free!

 

So, I Googled “grandmother rocking 2 babies”

and this came up.

slob, humor, crazy Google result

What in the world does this have to do with grandma rocking 2 babies???

Sometimes I wonder if Google has a mental disorder!

This is the very best Google had to offer:

slob, humor, grandma, 2 babies

Well, it’s a grandma all right! AND 2 babies!! I guess 2 outta 3 is the best we’re gonna get.

Remember when I had so much trouble with Google, and the spaghetti sauce??

How else can I ask for a grandmother rocking 2 babies???      

Ask for 3 dark haired men, 2 with beards??  Cuz apparently, they are related.

 

And here it is Tue evening,  I’m typing this with 1 hand, cuz the other is full of cranky baby.  I know some of y’all out there are familiar with this writing style!     The other baby, who declared “I not sick!!” then promptly fell asleep, is laid out on my bed.

At least when DD1 gets finished cooking supper, we can eat in peace an quiet!!

And now I have a post for Wed,      Please forgive the lack of one today.       Nurses don’t have much time to write!

 

Mouthy Memes

Mouthy memes seems like a good theme this week.      Let’s see how closely I can stick to it!

1 those days

Lol

That’s a true mouthful!!

slob, humor, mouth meme

See, this is a mouth….

slob, humor, mouth meme

Mama’s mouth to God’s ear!

slob, humor, mouth meme

Big mouth…

Another mouthful of truth!

I can’t stop laughing! Is that a big mouth bass??

slob, humor, mouth memes

Ok, he has a mouth….

Doing fairly well, up to this point…  I know that last one was stretching it a bit!

slob, humor, mouth meme

Hee Hee! Now that’s using your mouth!

slob, humor, mouth meme

Sorry. I had to use this one. Please don’t be offended liberals! It’s all in good fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

slob, humor, mouth meme

Hush yo mouth!

 

Hey, I did it!!    Mouthy memes, all!      Ahem!!       Ok, well mostly mouthy memes, then!

 

House’s Home!

Yay, moved into new place!!     Woot woot!!    Finally!!

But, you know the routine, I forgot to take before pix, while it was empty.     So, ignore all the boxes, superflous trash cans, flotsam and jettsam please!

slob, humor, newest place

Front door, divider between living room, dining room. Nice floors!

Boy, those dividers sure made handy places to sit, while my guys brought in all the stuff!!

This house has a great history.     The owner is 3rd generation family.      His grandparents lived in it, and he came every summer to visit.       After they died, he divided the house in 2, (Yes, it’s a huge house!!) and rented it out, cuz he couldn’t stand to sell it!!

It has some great features, like the dividers!    

And a plate rail in the dining room, very handy for propping up art!!

Tons of storage!!      And a skylight!!    

slob, humor, skylite in bath

A skylight! How fancy!

Yay!!      In the sink part of the bathroom!!       Yes, we have a fancy 2 room bathroom!     Oops, maybe that should be : we have a sink room, and a bath room!  lol

Unlike the place that fell thru, there is even room to walk in the laundry room, after we get the washer/dryer in there!!

IMG_20170517_110758

Washing machine, and dryer on the way!

AND a real back yard!!     The girls are so excited!!!      We’ve been back there to play, 3x already, the first week, in the evenings!!

With grass!    And trees, and everything!!

slob, humor, wall

Nice pic of the wall in my room! The bag o’ fabric has already been donated. Yay!

Also unlike the other place, I have a whole room ALL to myself!!       Except when PP wants to sleep with me, of course!!   (Only every night!!     She can’t believe she gets to snuggle Omie all the time!!)     Or PPJr needs a nap, and Mommy isn’t home!

My room.

 

slob, humor, blocked up window

My lovely blocked-up-window headboard!

The other half of the house, behind the windows- is a different rental unit. 

We are re-jiggering the layout somewhat.      The living room, with fireplace!

is now DD1’s bedroom.            

slob, humor, fire place

So pretty! Well, it was before we moved in our stuff!

The dining room is now our living room.

Happily, the kitchen is big enough to be an eat-in.

And did ya notice- a dish washer!!           Big white square in the last pic, there.                     With a built-in pantry!!    In the kitchen, not down at the end of the hall, like in my trailer!!     Woot Woot!

slob, humor, accessible pantry

So handy pantry!

And oh, the storage!!!

These cabinets are all in the sink room, of the bathroom!!

Did I mention the storage???      I coulda kept all my stuff!      No!!      [snaps rubber band on wrist]   Too much stuff is NOT good!!     Doesn’t matter how many cabinets there are!!

Girls’ room:

The other pink toddler bed was floating around my room.     Then, I decided to take it back where it belonged, since no one was sleeping in it anyway!

slob, humor, bath mirror

Convenient bath mirror- when you get out of shower, check if you forgot a spot!

That’s about it, except for the front porch, but it’s so jammed with boxes, both full, and empty, and half full of trash, that I decided to skip it for now!

All’s well that ends well.

And now the de-cluttering begins again!
