Totally Toxic Tub Toypaloosa

Get a load of this load of lovelies!

These is the girl’s totally toxic tub toypaloosa.

(I had already removed the moldy ducks.)


I got these spanking new duckies last week,

slob, humor, ducks

I have ducks!    And they’re in a row!    Look Elizabeth!

and told PP she could only have them if she threw away the old moldy ones.

This is not even the worst one.     Eeek!

Which she happily did immediately!       She even grabbed the nasty Mama duck, and threw her in the trash too!       Wow!!               4 toys out, only 3 in!!            Score!!

But it’s so embarrassing WHY the poor little innocent ducks had to meet their fate.     They were toxic.         Probably to the nuclear reactor factor- toxic.        😦

But this time is gonna be different!!

Hopefully this will shut the ducks up, no more squeaking!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I read somewhere a long while back, that to keep toys clean, ya need to plug up the water hole, with nail polish.        So, here we go to test that theory out!

I’ll try anything!

It worked on the mama duck’s beak, but not so well on the babies’ bottoms.       The nail polish just kept endlessly dripping into the empty cavern.       Need to go back to the drawing board!

Now, to get rid of the other toxic tub toys.

Buh bye totally toxic tub toys!

Yeah, when PP, and PPJR get back from Daddy’s, they will probably notice a few toys missing.       But, hoping the joy of the new duckies will carry them along for a while!!

Well, I know they are really, really gonna miss this 1 especially.

Pretty dirty mermaid

So, I’m thinking I will try to rescue it with Norwex.        Will post about the rescue effort later.

Perfectly purged playthings.

Totally toxic tub toypaloosa no more!!

 

Blogging Blogiversary

slob, humor, 3rd blogiversary

My 3rd!!

I can’t believe it!!         It’s been 3 years!!       My 3rd blogiversary was 8-19, last Saturday!         It’s almost unbelievable to me, that y’all love to read, and comment on my posts, and I have almost 1,000 followers!!         In case I don’t say it enough, y’all purple peeps are my very favoritist peeps in the whole, wide world!!       Thank you!!

slob, humor, purple peeps

Y’all are my purple peeps!        I love ya!!     And I promise not to eat you up!

I started out, in such a sad shape.       Hardly able to get up off my duff, and sweep a little bit.         Now here I am, 3 short years later, selling cleaning products, and keeping our house clean!       Okay, clean-ish!        You can actually walk in on any given day, and see the floor, the kitchen table, (at least part of it), and use the restroom, without me having any panic attacks, and you running out screaming about the ecoli cloud enveloping you!

AND!     Let’s not forget, picking up a 28 pound baby, on a regular basis!           I’m Purple Slob, hear me roar!        (Thanks to Helen Reddy.)

I hope we have many more happy years together!!

Have I said it enough times now??

First Day

Here is a Golden Oldie!! My very first blog post!
Sorry this week is so messed up. Full steam ahead next week!!

I’ve been reading Nony, from A Slob Comes Clean, for about a month now. She has motivated me to get my butt in gear. Sunday night, Monday morning!, I bought her 2 e-book set. Drowning in Clutter, Drain the Ocean, and 28 Days to Hope in Your Home. Of course, being me, I read them immediately.  Then, I got up and emptied the dw.  DH was so excited when he opened it Mon. morning and saw it empty.  Then I got really CRAY-CRAY, and while he took the grand baby, Pudding Pop, for her morning walk, I swept and mopped the living room. My back hurt, and I was huffing, and puffing. Yes, and sweating too.

But, it only took me approximately 10 minutes, start to finish, including moving the toys. Then I sat down, and basked in the glow of a job well…

Facebook Fail??

Last Sat., I attempted something brand new!        A FB Live!!      (Yes, yes, I attempted to post a video last year, but FB Live is a whole ‘nother animal!!)

Oh my goodness!!       It worked to post here!!       I can’t believe this!!        So excited!    😀            And I did it all by myself!!          See, an old, gray mare can be what she used to be!         {I didn’t want to say an old dog can learn new tricks, cuz I ain’t no dog!!}

{I wonder why I can’t hear it??      Any way, I hope you were stocked up on dramamine!}

Since this was a brave new world for me, as you might expect, I learned a L.O.T. of lessons!

  1. If the girls are not picked up on time- Abort the mission!!       I repeat- Abort the mission!!          As Sweet sis-in-love put it so gently, “It was a little hard to hear over the baby’s noise.”      Yes, poor PPJr was singing the song of her people, loudly!!        My party goers will appreciate, and understand, if I need to re-schedule.       Trust!    {It came out in many different snippets, instead of 1 long video.}
  2. I am a lousy cameraman.woman!!       In my defense, it’s extremely difficult to juggle a camera, and a whining toddler, who is clinging to me for dear life!!     And that’s not even mentioning the pre-schooler who wants to help.with.every.single.thing.        Whether she is actually capable or not.        With the restrictions of not filming their faces, yeah, a good time was had by all…..  ahem
  3. Make sure all products, and demos are set up, ahead of time!!        No one wants to get sea sick from the wildly swinging camera views, as I go look for stuff!!     See #2 above.
  4. Try to not roll my eyes every 2 seconds.      I hated seeing it myself!!       I can only imagine how irritated it made my attendees!      On a good note, I think I was giving lots of good eye contact, in between rolls!
  5. An hour would have been long enough!!     I scheduled 2, but there was just no way!!
  6. Make sure there is proper lighting.       Watching a blank screen, while I try to figure out how to end the blackout, was probably not in their top 3 fave moments of the day.
  7. Learn how to actually do a FB Live, sooner than 24 hours before the scheduled event.        Maybe even practice once or twice beforehand.
  8. Do not nap until 1 minute after the start time!       Very important key step!!
  9. Hire a speech coach next time.
  10. Write a script, instead of trying to wing it, on products you only learned about 3 weeks ago.
  11. Actually remember to purchase the raffle tickets, when you promised to give away prizes, and give a certain number of tickets for different things.       Hand writing the names, then cutting them up, was rather tedious.
  12. Have a bowl handy to put the tickets in!      Using a box with open bottom, was not the best choice.     (It was flapped shut, just not taped.    So some of the slips periodically escaped.       Everyone patiently waited while I retrieved them, thankfully.         Why wouldn’t they??        They wanted to know if they won something free!!

A Norwex post.

Norwex Nixes

Since I now have the Norwex ,

slob, humor, Norwex cloths
My kitchen cloths.

(2 eggplant kitchen cloths, 1 eggplant kitchen towel, 1 pink Enviro, and 1 graphite Enviro),      oh!      I almost forgot the dish scrubby cloth!

I need to purge, and donate the other kitchen rags cloths I have.

 

5 dish rags, and 6 dish towels.     I know I have at least 2 more dish rags somewhere….     (Yep, went to the kitchen, for a peach drink, and found another one…)

slob, humor, another microfiber cloth

I knew I had more!

{Aren’t PP’s hands, and knees so pretty!}

These are not including the 4 brand new microfiber ones I had!!

Several- like 4!

These 6 Norwex cloths will replace the existing 15+ rags, and towels I have.

WHAT??       How can that be??

Well, let me tell you!!

Norwex is microfiber, just like cheap ones, BUT so much better!

The University of Washington

“The term microfiber technically applies to fiber that is 1.0 denier or smaller. The
smaller the denier measurement, the finer and more effective the microfiber. Superior microfiber measures 0.13 denier.”

And Standard Fiber

tells us that “In terms of fills, in order to be considered a “microfiber” the fiber must be less than 1 denier, which is extremely fine. This gives the fill its airy weight, downy feel, and soft, silky texture. In comparison, a human hair is 20 denier, whereas Standard Fiber’s microfibers are typically 0.9 denier or less.”

Norwex is 1/200 of the width of a human hair.     That means it’s  __.1_ denier.      We are far superior to any other microfiber on the market!!

{I did that math all by myself!!    Well, after I did it the first time, it didn’t look right, so I redid it, and that time it was right!      Yes, DD1 checked my calculations!!  😉  }

So, since Norwex is such a finely textured thread, and woven so densely per inch, it picks up 99% of the bacteria, and germs on the surface!      And yes, we are Government certified to say that!!      And since it has BacLock, I can just use, rinse, wring, hang to dry, then reuse!        They only need washing once a week!!

Not only does Norwex nix the germs, it nixes all other cloths, and paper towels too!!

Can you say savings??!!

In case you can’t tell, I LOVE my Norwex!!
