Shame Shunned

Yep, you thought I was fresh outta shameful secrets, huh?

Nope!!

This decision has been a long- long- super long time in coming!!

And no, I did not scrabble thru the garbage to retrieve them!       Aren’t we proud of me??

Yes, I am- quite!!

Thank you, really!!           And I don’t even miss them!                       What rolls of film?????   Shame shunned!!         Another decades long weight off my shoulders!

 


(Haha!    I outsmarted you, WP lack of memory storage!!)

Victim: Vanronica

I don’t know quite how to break this to you, Gary….  but Vanronica might have to be put down.     

She broke another leg.

slob, humor, Vanronica

Oh no!! Poor Vanronica!

The 4th one this year!!      Well, technically, she broke the same one twice, front left, and then a right front, and now the rear right.

 

slob, humor, tire missing

slob, humor, Vanronica

Eeww! She needs her hooves filed, or something!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Maybe we need to repave her track???)

Thankfully, XH is a tire man, and always rides to the rescue when I call!!       What would I do without him??         Well, this time I’d be walking!

Thank you, XH, for rescuing me again!!

 


I know who to blame this time!!     And I’m gonna name and blame!!

IRMA!!       Good thing she’s already hightailed it outta town!        I’d be after her with a vacuum, to suck her up!

Oops!!        I’m sorry!         I was trying to avoid saying her name again!!         Yep, this makes the 5th time!

PP’s Playroom

Well, it’s time to face the lion’s den: PP’s playroom.          I’m scared, Mommy!!        Hold me!

The outlook, going in.        Or should that be the inlook????

Nope, no sound, I forgot!  Sorry!      I will get better at this, I promise!!

You’re right, if you think not all of that is PP’s!!      A lot of the closet turned out to be mine, and DD1’s.

DD1’s memory box, and some clothes. 

My purple suitcase.        But not empty, as DD thought!!           Surprise!!           Smart fabric stash!

Plus 2 books.

My Grandma book, to fill with info about me, for PP, and CC to read later!           And my small wedding album, from marrying Bobby.        My lost love, who’s in heaven.

And now, more room, for more fabric!!                    Don’t even think about it!!

slob, humor, fabrics folded

Fold ’em up!

I knew I had more of those fabric squares!!        Found ’em finally!!        I couldn’t proceed with the twin’s quilts till I did!!

The big blue bag, was mixed clothes, girls’ and DD’s.

So since they’re never used, the toddler beds can go, as well as the pool.         They are both so tall, both couldn’t sit in there at one time!!        And I’m not gonna try to make them take turns for that!!

Not sure what we’re gonna do with her buttons, and marbles yet.        I know we’re keeping ALL her rocks!!         She’s been collecting those for 3 years now!

Probably won’t remember to take a video of her clean room, or a pic either.          Because by that time, we’ll be gone!             😉

This is the full story, in living color.

Enjoy the  Video ‘viro version!

 


I’m so thrilled that I finally learned how to youtube!!       Thanks, DD1!!         And Stella has been a tremendous help to me in the tech dept, as well.        Also, thanks to SF!             Without him, I wouldn’t even have a computer to work on!       (Which is now fixed, I just need to get a new connector thingy, so I can get back on the net.       ARGH!!)

Living Life

This was my post from Aug. 23, 2014.

https://purpleslobinrecovery.wordpress.com/2014/08/23/life-happens/

 

I talked about loving everyone while they’re here, cuz ya never know when they will be gone.        At that time, I had no idea that my BIL, Jeffery, would die so suddenly on Oct 3, 2015, only a year later.          And that DH would become XH 2 years later.    

slob, humor, what???? face

Please hug and kiss all your loved ones, immediately!!          Tell them you love them!!     Life is not guaranteed!          All we have for sure, is today.

slob, humor, heart

Wasp Workers

Just look at these  busy bees wasp workers!        All up under my soffit, like they own it, or something.

slob, humor, wasp nest
Very very scary!!

Bonus!      You can see some of the roofing problems, that existed before Irma.

Then, they started a second colony.      Apparently the first one wasn’t big and scary enough.

slob, humor, more wasps
2nd colony.

Even more bonus:  More pre-existing roof damage.       No longer need to wonder why the roof sprang a leak during the storm, do we??

This is the truly frightening one.        It’s inside the porch!! 

slob, humor, wasps in porch
Oh no!! Inside the porch!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

😦

Lots more nests:

Not AS worried about these, still not happy they’re there of course!


That’s when I realized I really had to do something!        The next place was gonna be inside!          So, I put out the SOS to our guys.        PopPop was the first to run to the store.

 Thanks, PopPop!       The lives you saved had your own blood!

Here’s the gruesome scenes, of my attacks.

Sadly, NOT, none of the wasps survived.

Not enough corpses for ya?          Here’s some more.

I just love seeing dead bugs!!       Of any variety!

Wasp workers wasted!!          Mwuahahaha!

Machine Match

I forgot to tell the story of what happened in between Tasty Tuna Two, and Quilting Quagmire, 

Okay, so there I was, with no foot on my machine!!    

slob, humor, missing foot

A very important part is missing!

Help me, Bella!!

Ya can’t feed the fabric with no foot!

I looked in my sewing box.

Nope.     I looked in the drawer the box was in.

Nope.         I looked in the purdy purple jar.

Nope.      

Very discouraging!!         Aha!         Now I remember!         XH had found it, and said, “Don’t you need this??”          So, he knows where it is!            

Nope.         He said he handed it to me.           {sigh}

 Tragedy!


But, then it hit me, I had another Brother!

slob, humor, 2 Brother sewing machines
Another Brother, from another mother!!

So, I cannibalized the new one, for the old one!       Because the new one was from next door, when my neighbor died (at the MHP), and her daughters didn’t know where the cord was.        So, hopefully when I have time to learn the new one, the cord from the old one will fit!!

So, then we had to try to make it fit.       My fat fingers got in the way.        (Also, I was afraid I’d jab myself with the needle!       I have sewn thru my finger before, so my apprehension was well warranted!)slob, humor, foot replaced

 

 

 

 

Thankfully, XH made short work of attaching it.               At long last, I was ready to sew!!      Hip hip, hurray!!

I wonder when , or if!! I will ever find the original foot????
