Eight Eighths

Since I went to all the trouble of coming up with Eight Eighths, I might as well use it!!

The non-series-named series on the 8 house so far:

House’s Home

Wandering Wonderings

De-Clutter, De-claim, De-cline

De-clutter, De-claim, De-cline, De-clusion

Still in the 8 house, which I will be for at least a year.        Thank you lease!!

Working in my room, selfishly!!

Here’s where I started, in the first round.

 

 

(Pretty sure that 3rd pic, is not the original starting point for that corner, but ah well, not going back and searching more!)


And now I’m having lots of error codes, trying to upload more pix, so no more of that frustration, right now.        Argghh!!

So now that I’m all aggravated, I need to switch activities to something more aggressive, like hand shredding tree branches, or something, to shed my anger!

But, will probably settle for de-cluttering the sink room counter.  

Back in a bit.      Go ahead, and get a snack.      It might be awhile.


Which it was, and the sink project gave me great satisfaction!     Then I even sat down, and uploaded those pix, and wrote the aforementioned post, D,D,D, De-clusion.      Now why??     WHY did those pix load, but not the earlier ones???      Why hatest thou me, oh great technology master??

Okay, so I’m gonna try again to upload those pesky pix.       Not holding my breath!!

First box I came to was papers.     Papers that needed to have been shredded many moons ago!

IMG_20170519_083351  Now I’m working on it!!     Guess I finally got my Roun-tuit!!

slob, humor, roundtuit
Let’s see if I really do??

 

 

 

 

 

Do you see that 2nd pic??     Paperwork Reduction Act??       Dear mercy!!        How many more tons of trees gave their life BEFORE this Act???

Anyway, most of them were beginning in 2009, when I filed for my disability for the last time, ranging up to 2012, when I received it.     Way too old, and irrelevant now!   Buh, bye paper!!       And good riddance to that ream of it!

slob, humor, unncessary paperwork

Feels good to get rid of it!!           Finally!

And yes, that is a Steak n Shake cup.               What??                       I had to keep hydrated!

Then I found some more trash, in the form of extraneous files.

My Baptism certificate, as an adult.         Old classroom pix, while I was teaching.       Those kids’ faces haunt me in my nightmares- I really don’t need the physical reminders!!

An utility bill, with a credit on it!!      Woo hoo!!!         And monthly recaps of my prescriptions, from 2 years ago.       I think it’s safe to shed them now!!

slob, humor, head shots

Yeah, that’s me, 30 something years, and over a hundred pounds ago. That girl’s gone.

Modeling head shot cards, no longer needed.      I did get 1 modeling gig, a TV commercial!!      It was for a V-loop, circle antenna.       It played so often on the local channel, that one of my cousins called me up, and said “I’m sick of seeing your face on my TV!”          I hadn’t even been aware it was playing yet!!      Thanks for the heads up, cuz!            And I still have the VHS somewhere, I think.        Wanna come over for a private screening, and some popcorn??          (Absolutely no etchings involved!)

Even some real physical trash:

Broken bin, staple puller- that I have not used even once in the 9 years since I last taught, extra mug.       Those ink stains- who has time to clean??         My mom, apparently!       She rescued it from the trash.       Once a hoarder (better stop now, if I want to stay alive.      Sometimes Sis shows her my posts!!)

slob, humor, a box o' trash out the door!

Trash!! Woo hoo!! No, you may not comment about the empty brownie box.

So, ends my first room purge, in the eighth house, of the rising sun.       Oh wait, that doesn’t sound quite right….

I hope you enjoyed your daily Monday dose of funny!

 

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……

Melinda’s Mothers Morning

Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017          

slob, humor, purple Mother's Day gift

Happy Mother’s Day, Melinda!

It was a wonderful day!!    OR “wunnerful”, as Laurence Welk used to say!!      (Google him, millennials; a famous band leader, had a TV show).

Went to church with DD1.     DD2 called.    I had a Steak-n-Shake Garlic burger, fries, {What GF diet??} and a purple milkshake.    

slob, humor, purple milkshake

Only the best purple shake in the world!!

 [Thank you Sweet Friend, for giving me the gift card!]     

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talked to my Mama; Sis, Brother, and Shirley texted me.

Went to new house, and had a Nap!!      Very important part of any great day!!

When I got up, unpacked 4 boxes.     Purged a small Walmart bag of new stuff from crafts, and threw away a half way full, small moving box of old legal papers.       They were from getting my disability in 2012.     But first I tore off all my names, addresses, and Social numbers!!     I shredded the tiny pile of that stuff, by hand even!!

By that time I was starving, well no, not literally!!      So DD1 got us each small pizzas.     She likes pepperoni, yuck!!      I only want cheese.    

slob, humor, cheese only pizza      Or, hamburg, and onions, if we’re getting fancy!!

Then, Sweet Friend came over, and asked where the screws were to put together the beige leather recliner.     How would I know??     I didn’t take it apart!!        And the take-apart-ee, never mentioned it to me.      But, DD1 and I had already decided we didn’t want it, due to its poor condition, and lack of space for it in living room.    

messy, messy recliner

                                                                    (Old pic)

So, when he said “Well, I can’t put it back together without the screws!      And then you can’t sit on it!”    We both looked at each other, with smiles on our faces, and said in unison, “Put it outside, by the road!”      He was flabbergasted!       We couldn’t really mean that!                 Yup, we did.           I said “Watch!    Somebody will take it!”         (I’ll be watching to see if that’s true.     But even if they don’t, trash pick up is in the morning, so 1 way or another, it will be gone!!     And I don’t care which way either!)

So, my first purge, at the new place has already occurred!       And I couldn’t be happier!!

Finally, to finish out my perfect day, I got kisses, and hugs,

slob, humor, hugs and kisses

Anathema Anthem

My good friend Susie said that washing dishes was anathema to her.     (Don’t you love that word??)

My immediate response was, “Don’t worry, they don’t like it either!”

So, then I started thinking,  “Hey, I wonder what dishes DO think about it?”

Are they just chillaxin in old sweats?  (Can we agree if mold’s growing on it, then it’s old??  and stinky like sweats?)

slob, humor, moldy can o' food

Then unceremoniously slammed into hot, soapy water, bubbles filling their noses, being boiled alive!!        WHAT THE HECK????

slob, humor, dishes

UGH.

“Hey, oh! Hey!  I’m being scalded alive here!”       I can just hear them shout, loudly!!        I’m quite sure you could hear it too, if you attune your ears to their distress!

Sorry plates, and bowls, gotta do what a slob’s gotta do!!         Maybe next time I won’t wait so long, and then it won’t be such a shock to your delicate ceramic!!
