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!

Husband Hahas

Today’s theme is only for laughs!!       If anyone gets offended, they are grounded from next week’s Monday memes!!          And I mean it!!

slob, humor, husband meme

Don’t do it!!

slob, humor, husband meme

I love these!   As a newlywed in 1984, I cut them out, and put them all over our mirror!

slob, humor, husband meme

Yup.

slob, humor, husband meme

Awwww!        Real love there!!

slob, humor, meme

Nope, just nope!!

slob, humor, husband meme
Eek!

slob, humor, husband meme

Now that’s true love, right there!!      Everlasting!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

slob, humor, husband meme

So romantic!

slob, humor, husband meme

Uhhhhh

slob, humor, husband meme

True story!

slob, humor, husband meme

That sounds about right!!

Husbands- did you get any hahas outta this??

Wives- did you??

Singles- are ya laughing cuz you’re neither??

 

Buh Bye Bob!

Okay, since I can not figure out what to do with water Bob, and PopPop has given me permission to break up with him in any way I see fit, it’s buh bye, Bob!        Now to break it to him.


Bob, it’s not you, it’s me.

Well, ok, it is you.

When we first met, I felt like you were the perfect one!     So nicely groomed, and packaged!    So precisely folded!      So useful!!

slob, humor, Water Bob

My new man!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But then, after we carried our relationship to the next level, you just sat there, wishy washy, as if you were filled with liquid, or something!        I need someone who is sturdy, and dependable!

True, you stayed in place, and never left me, but what a cold fish you were!!     I need more warmth than you provided.

slob, humor, water stored in the tub

Once the crisis was over, you deflated like a balloon.      I need someone who can stand beside me, come what may, both good and bad!

You never once gave me any compliments, or responded verbally in any way, when I spoke to you.        I have to have conversation!!         The strong silent type is not for me!!

And I really hate to mention this part, but you need to know.      Your hygiene wasn’t the best, at the end.         You didn’t finish drying off after your shower, and there was a …                                         I have to say it…… a slight mustiness about you.           When I make an effort to stay clean, and fresh smelling for you; the very least you could do is show me the same courtesy! 

 Then, you just stayed in the corner, all balled up, like a useless blob of nothingness.     

slob, humor, empty water bob

Bob is a big, blobbing bother now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get up, and do something, man!!           I have my own depression issues, I really don’t have time, or energy to be your caretaker!!

Maybe next time, things will work out for you.       It was nice knowing you.

Buh bye Bob!!

Outside Ousters

Just in case you thought I made up another word:

Ousters – definition of Ousters by The Free Dictionary

a. The act of ejecting, forcing out, or supplanting. b. The state of being ejected, forced out, or supplanted. 2. One that ejects, forces out, or supplants another.


Annnnnd, just when you thought you’d never have to hear the word “Irma” again, here she is back for a fourth appearance.      (Dare we hope fourth, and final appearance??)

Oops!!     I forgot to show you the other day, the first, and most important inside prep I made for Irma!!

slob, humor, saving the ice cream

Had to save the ice cream from melting!!

That was job one!!       (Apologies to Ford!)

Onto more serious things.

These were the outside ousters for Irma.      Ya know, the stuff that might fly around and hit somebody in the head, and knock ’em out!!

Backyard stuff brought inside, away from Irma’s ire!

Front yard stuff brought into the porch, out of harm’s way.

Man, that trash bin was stinky!!   

Our neighbor had a terrific idea!  

slob, humor, sandbags on doorstep
Can you see the sandbags on his doorstep??

His apt. is ground level, whereas ours is 3 steps up!!

 

XH went around and closed all the jalousie windows, on the porch, the laundry room, and the bathroom.          A lot of the cranks were busted, so it had to be done from the outside.        So it was a man job!

So, that’s about all I have to say about Irma.        Hopefully since we’ve seen the backside of her, and know she can’t ever bother us again, I won’t need to mention her a fifth time, either!!

 

Oh, wait!!      Here’s one effect from her, that I’m not sure what to do about.

slob, humor, empty water bob

What do I do with this mess???       Water bob is a big, blobbing bother now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do I try to dry it out somehow???        I hung it over the shower curtain for 3 days, not effective.         And if I try to fold it up, and keep it, won’t it be mildewed next time I need it????

Okay, I think I have well and truly exhausted the topic of that wild, windy woman, you know who!

Hurricane Hahas

Since Irma so rudely interrupted last Monday’s regularly scheduled memes, I’m going to make fun of her today!

Here’s some hurricane hahas for ya!!

slob, humor, hurricane meme

It felt like it for a minute there!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Yep, it will be for a minute, or two. Thank God, not as long as Texas. Continue to pray for them.

slob, humor, Irma memes

Yup!!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Well, he got it exactly right!!

slob, humor, Irma meme

So very helpful!   Think I’ll go eat a bowl of spaghetti!

slob, humor, Irma meme

And she listened!       Such a cute kitteh!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Pretty much!!      If you’ve lived thru one, or 5!      It takes a lot to scare ya now!!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Bwahahaha!       Love Bob Ross!!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Unless you have a Norwex body cloth!!        Then you can use only 16 ox of water!!      Tested and approved!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Take a pic of your fridge, so you don’t have to keep opening it!       This one is actually a brilliant idea!!

slob, humor, Irma meme

Oh man!        The fights I’ve seen…

slob, humor, Irma meme

Another brilliant idea!!       We gotta eat!

slob, humor, Irma meme

slob, humor, Irma meme

So very helpful!      Think I’ll go eat a bowl of spaghetti!

I hope you enjoyed your hurricane hahas!!

See ya tomorrow!

After effects

 

The after effects of Irma.

Side yard:

Help!      They’ve fallen, and they can’t get up!!

slob, humor, flowers down

Poor flowers.

Front yard:

Devastation? None as far as the eye can see.

slob, humor, no damage

Not even enough damage to write home about!       Thank you God for sparing us!!

Inside was a whole different story tho!

Our front door blew off!!

 

Okay, so it was only a tiny little strip of door Veneer that blew off.      But that’s not dramatic!!

We did have a ceiling leak, tho!       For realz!!

See??

slob, humor, ceiling leak

Ceiling leak in living room.

Okay, yeah, it was only the black speckled part at the bottom.      The huge patch was from a previous leak.       But still, we had to use 2 whole towels to sop up the deluge!!

TWO!       Beach sized towels!

 

The little plant table on the porch got wet.

The porch doormat was soaked.

Waaaahhhh!          My feet got wet!!

(I’m making fun of myself: NOT people who had REAL damage!!)


Back yard:

Looks good, looks good, looks okay.

 

UH OH!!!!

That doesn’t look so good!!

 

This is the apt. right out our back door.         The neighbor hasn’t returned home yet, so not sure of the extent of the damage.           But from the ground, it doesn’t look like it went thru the roof.           I hope not!

Serious damage????         To be determined.

Pre Preps

Pre preps for imminent, irritation Irma are on going this weekend.  I’m writing this on my phone Sunday night, as my desktop apparently decided it was time to desert this earthly travail.    Argh!!          (update:   Monday it came back to life, after I gave it mouth to USB port resuscitation!)

Talk about frustration!   How am I supposed to blog about hurricane preps on my tiny little phone keyboard??   Vewwy vewwy cawefully!!

Anyway, I took pix, and since I’m on my phone, they should be easier to insert.    Let’s hope!!

Water is always a first essential.    Got it covered.

slob, humor, water stored in the tub

Fresh water- yay!

slob, humor, Water Bob

My new best friend!

TY PopPop!              That’s for drinking.

Second essential is potty. Got that covered:

(I was gonna take a pic of all the tp, but you know what it looks like!)

slob, humor, water for flushing

Flush water- sooooo important!!

Next is food.

Brownies!!         Then peach Coke- of course!           I think that’s all we need.       ( I have lots of other food, it’s just not that important!   lol)

Lights:

slob, humor, flashlight, lantern

Lights- check!


DD1 took babies out of state.  So I know they’re safe.   DD2 was already out of state, so all’s good there.

XH had to evac his mobile, so I demanded asked him over here.   After all, somebody’s got to piggyback my fat butt outta here if the flooding is too bad!   Plus he has a 4×4 truck!

slob, humor, me and XH

Us!     Partying like it’s Hurricane Charley!

(He certainly seems to be happy to be here, doing all the prep work, doesn’t he???)


PopPop is safe at his work.

Grandmama’s building IS a shelter.  So she’s all good.   She’s having a sleepover with friends, in the laundry room!

Sister’s house is Cat 4 rated, so her and kids are safe.   Bubba and Shirley have a sturdy block house, so they’re good.

Let’s see who did I forget??   Oh yeah, Rose was already overseas, so she’s good.   And neighbor Jeannette went to a safe place as well.

All’s well that ends well, for us.    God protected us!!  

Praying for the millions still without power, and that lost their homes.

And still praying for Texas, and Louisiana.

Thanks everybody for all the prayers for us!!

Purse Purging

(More info about Irma stuff, when I can get the pesky pix to load!!)

That time of year again; ye ole annual purging o’ the purse.        Since I have a fairly small one now, it could probably be bumped up to biannually, at least!

slob, humor, orange purse

*Gasp!!* An orange purse??? PurpleSlob, are you sick??

I know, I know!     No one I know can believe I bought an orange one!!

Here’s the pix of this go round.          Start.

slob, humor, purse interior
Da dark depths of da dungeon. I mean purse.

1 lonely earring.    That I’ve only worn once, cuz I hate intensely dislike the colors.   (Well, I brought them to coordinate with a shirt, that then I got rid of too, cuz I don’t like those colors.    DUH!)

slob, humor, 1 earring
1 lonely earring. 1 piece clear trash

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many purple pens do I need in my purse??  

slob, humor, 3 purse pens

1 lil, 2 lil, 3 lil pens!

Hint: probably not this many.         And I definitely don’t need the orange one!       No matter what color my purse is!

Receipts, mostly trash.     Except the one for rent, and the one with survey code for free Wendy’s sandwich!

slob, humor, receipts
Mostly useless receipts.

Some more VIT= very important trash.

slob, humor, purse trash

DD1’s credit card, to get gas, in Vanronica.     Yeah, that was pretty much purged immediately, back into her hot little hand!         (DD’s, not Vanronicas’!)        But honey, it was orange, and I just couldn’t see it against the lining of my purse!

slob, humor, DD1's debit

DD1’s debit.

2 things hand sanitizer.      Since one is Norwex, guess which one is being purged??

slob, humor, 2 kinds han san

Who’s hands are the dirtiest??

I had previously purged the useless, long, skinny strap:

slob, humor, long skinny strap gone

Useless, long, skinny strap: gone!

Finally, we’re down to the lining.    

slob, humor, dirty purse lining
Yucky mess! (So what else is new??)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleaning the lining will have to wait for another day.       I’m bushed!     Lol.
