Seven Seconds Siesta

Whirled thru working on the workshop today.    (Sat.  Should have done it Wed!!)

In an hour, I quick sorted thru half of the workshop!!       I couldn’t believe I went so fast!  DD1 was there, helping me.      She looked thru boxes very quickly, if it wasn’t even mine, she put it on the trash pile.       Things that weren’t sentimental, not personal ornaments, new stuff that I forgot I bought, etc, she could donate, or discard for me.   

I kept a couple boxes of pictures, etc, that I need to take my time to go thru at a later date.  But so much stuff I let go!!     Very proud of myself!     And so was she!      She really has been a wonderful cheerleader, in this process.     She acknowledges how hard it is for me to give up stuff, and she applauds every effort I make to trim down.       Thank you, honey!!

The paving bricks, left big pic on bottom, I gave away last Thurs, on Freecycle.      I was so glad to see them waltz away, under someone else’s heavy lifting power, not mine!!     And XH was grateful, too!      He’s been helping me so much, in this purging, and packing up to move process!

I was so tired, (it was HOT in there!), that I forgot to take after pix.      Ah well.     Tomorrow’s another day!       It’ll still be there!        I haven’t signed the title, and given the keys to the new owner yet!       I’m still waiting for him to be approved by the park.      He only came to look at it Wed.    So, I’m trying to chill my jets!

DD1, and I will be moving in together, to facilitate taking care of the girls more easily, and the sharing of Vanronica.      We’ve looked at several places.     Even put a deposit on one, moved the furniture in, and then I decided I really couldn’t live there.     I know!!    Why can’t I listen to my gut feelings the FIRST time????     Anyway, we are supposed to get back half our deposit, when the lady re-rents it (for realz that time).      So, only cost me $400, plus turn on fees for gas, and electric.      Quite an expensive lesson!      But, it would have been far worse, to actually move in, and suffer!!      My mental, physical, and emotional health are far too valuable to me now, to not live peacefully, and comfortably.

(There were code enforcement cases open on the property, parking was a nightmare, the only play space was all concrete, and DD1 and I would have had to share a bedroom.     And the very worse thing of all_ the potty space was too tiny!!!!     I knew better than to say yes, at the time, but squelched my instinctive NO!, just so we’d have a place right away.     The decision was made out of fear on my part.    And I had already promised myself not to let fear run my life anymore.      So, to stay true to myself, I had to suck it up, and cancel the deal.     DD1 was disappointed, so was the landlady, but better they are disappointed, than I live torn in half against myself.     And scraping the hide off my thighs every 3 hours!!)

After an hour’s rest, I asked SF to let me borrow his car, and go back over, to bag up the trash, and the donations.     But instead, he came with me.     Even better!!

And that meant I could take some after pix!     Yay!

Then, he and I went thru more stuff, that she and I didn’t get to. 

Whew!   The results of 2 more hours work!      Well worth the effort!

He piled all the donates outside, on the carport.  

                                                                   Isn’t it lovely??!!

Look at that glorious humongous pile!! I feel tremendously accomplished today!!

 

Previous House Time: 20 hrs 38 min

Workshop Time: 2 hrs x 2 people= 4 hrs   (It was 3 different people, but only 2 people each hour.     Does that clear up the mud?)

Total House Time: 24 hrs 38 min

I’m so exhausted, I.can’t.even.move.    (In more ways than 1!)

 

Hot Hound

{I started this post 6 months ago!  After a round of de-clutterathons.}

 

Hot dog!   Hot hound, whichever!     I’ve done so much here in the house, I’m almost done!! It looks so good!

Umm, Melinda?          Yeah?          I hate to burst your bubble, but aren’t you forgetting something??  No, I don’t think so, the house is looking wonderful!          Oh yes, you’re right!  The house looks great!

I hear a “But” in there.           Yup, the house is not all there is to your vast estate.        Remember this??

Workshop- still to come!

Spaghetti Spine

Is it possible to have spaghetti sauce turn into wine?   If you don’t think so, I’m here to tell you: YES! It’s possible!  I have smelt it!  ( And dealt with it too!)     It was scary!

And I took pix of the jars that I found when I moved in 16 months ago.    

(Left over from former owner.  The one BEFORE the one I bought it from!  So, that means it’s vintage is at least 2005, or OLDER!!)

But , I never remembered to upload them.   They got deleted off the camera, of course, and so this post never got finished.  

So, whadda I do??       Do what everybody else would do!       Google “rotten spaghetti sauce that’s turned into wine”!     Of course!

Results:

First pic.

slob, humor, spaghetti

Seriously? This is the result??

Further down the list:

slob, humor, jar of sauce

I just thought this was too cute!! It’s supposed to be a giphy, and the sauce sloshes.

Maybe I need to Google “spaghetti sauce with a side of penicillin”???

First result:

slob, humor, more spaghetti sauce

Ok, now I’m getting aggravated!

Aha!      Here we go!             “moldy spaghetti sauce”       Now we’re getting somewhere!

slob, humor, moldy sauce

Now that’s rotten sauce!!

The ones I found were not quite that bad….

 

 

 

 

 

My way of dealing with it:

(Here we go again)   “pouring spaghetti sauce out of a mason jar”

slob, humor, mason jar sauce

Google, Google, Google! Get with it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s try that again.          “pouring spaghetti sauce ”         Simple, but elegant.

slob, humor, pouring sauce out of mason jar

Finally!

        And, as it turns out, the most effective. 

My way of dealing with it, was pouring it down the drain!!

Can you imagine eating 11 year old spaghetti sauce?  Let me tell you, I wouldn’t recommend it!

Seven Seconds Shade

Y’all, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!     And this time I know fer sure, it’s not a train!       I’ve been de-cluttering, and purging the house for  …   how many months now???        And after almost 13 hours, I’m still not done!!

So, anyways, today we’ve got it made it in the shade, porch shade, that is.

Seven Seconds Shade- today’s shady deal

My porch hasn’t been touched in, oh a year or so??     For PP’s last birthday, July!!  PopPop cleaned it up, to put up her castle.  

(Insert castle pic here.)

Just in case I forget to take a pic of her own castle, here’s one very nearly like it.

slob, humor, not PP's own castle

Just like PP’s.     Except, it’s not hers.

BUT!!    He didn’t get rid of anything!    He just rearranged it.       (I don’t want to call him a hoarder, or anything……   but he still has every piece of Tupperware his mother ever touched.     And  lots more stuff, that we will just pretend doesn’t exist.      This is my tell-all blog, not his spill-my-guts-involuntarily-for-me-why-don’t-you-Melinda expose!!    So, nuff said.)

SO, here’s the hideous situation to begin:

AAAARRRGGGHH!!     I went to plug my phone in, to upload the pix, and the camo colored cord is missing!!      Complete and utter panic!!!!!        What do I do now?????

Ok, ok, calm down!       NOW!!      Breathe……

(Text DD1 in a panic, since she’s the only other one who uses this computer.       SF uses his TV, as a monitor, in the living room.)        Whew!!      It’s in Vanronica, which is right outside.        Alright, I can un-panic now!


Short station break while I huff and puff my way outside, and back.         Talk amongst yourselves.       Or have an ice cream bar!

Here we go.      Gratuitous selfie of said missing cord.        Such a happy, smiling cord!

slob, humor, camera cord

Smile! You’re on Camo Cord!

Now, we can finally begin the post!!   (382 words in….)

As I was saying…. SO, here’s the hideous situation to begin:   

slob, humor, porch clutter

Shady stuff

Ok, I think you’ve got a good idea now, of the titanic job we were facing.     Didja notice the sand on the floor?      PP is a true Floridian, and wants her toes in be in the sand, at ALL times!       This was AFTER I’d already given away the white stand, and sewing machine in it!

One of the 2 black chairs was broken, so I asked XH to throw it away.    He asked which one, so I told him “Sit on it!”      Then he was able to figure it out.       😉

A mountain of pillow stuffing/fake snow for Christmas villages rained down into trash bags.       The baby walker went rolling right into Vanronica, followed by so much stuff, I can’t even name it all!!

Here’s the Salvation Army haul for this time:

Yay!     More donations!!

XH, DD1, and I worked for an hour and a half!       3 x 1.5 = 4.5 (wo)man hours.     Wow!!   After XH swept, it looked gorgeous!!       

slob, humor, XH cleans up nicely

Sweep it clean!

 We all stood there dumbstruck that the porch was this big!   We were so used to seeing it piled high with junk, we forgot how nice it really is!

So nice and clean!       And suddenly spacious even!!

Previous Time: 12 hr 58 min

Plus Today’s 4 hr 30 min

Equals :   The envelope please!!     17 hr 28 min

Holy Cow!  I knew 7 was Waaaaay too little, but 17??   Really??

And still more bathroom, 1 bedroom, and the workshop to go!!

I hope I get it all done before I move again!      (Oops!    Let the cat outta the bag!!    Moving posts to come soon!)

More, and more, the story, and clutter mountain grows!      Uh, no, actually, the clutter mountain is decreasing, as time goes on.       Oh, yeah, you’re right!      Thanks for keeping me straight!        No prob.

Here’s how the shed looked, after the first go round.

Now, onto the good stuff!!              Getting rid of!!             Decluttering!!      

           Purging!!                 Recycling!!      (Sorry, no pix exist.)                 Plain out trashing!!!  

slob, humor, trash

3 cans of trash, obliterated!!

I was whirling thru it like a fiend!!

This time, XH was helping me, not DD1.        She was at work.

Donating!!!!  

slob, humor, donate

The whole bin that wasn’t mine. So,easy decision, all donate, yess!

All the Christmas overload, that I had not used this past Christmas, took a hike.

 See ya!!

It was a huge LOT!!         Even 1 whole bin of it, that wasn’t mine!!      {Again!!}

I had so many lights, and garland strands, I could have decorated my whole street!!      That’s if you would have had the get up and go, to actually do it!!      You didn’t even decorate the outside of your own house, beyond a wreath on the door.        True, sad, but true.

I was sweating so hard, I think I lost 5 lbs!!       (All water weight of course.)

Results:

Whatever do you do with 2 completely empty bins???        (Update:  you use one to fill up with donate stuff!!      2 bins with 1 stone!)

slob, humor, last empty space

Oops! Almost forgot the final finished foto!

How fabulous does all that empty space look??     It’s like a miracle!!    Except we did it with our own 2 hands!      (4 hands, actually!)        And my brain, and determination to get more junk outta my life!!       I sure wasn’t enjoying any of it, when it was out there with the spiders??    Snakes??       Wasps fer sure!!      (I know cuz I had to spray a few!     Did you know spray paint will kill wasps??      Those 3 are the prettiest, pinkest, DEADEST, wasps ever!!)

slob, humor, painted pink wasps.

The pink and the dead.


     In Vanronica, and ready to run!!          They were dropped off within 2 hours!!                     Woo hoo!!!       DD1 and I high fived ourselves, for that!    (Yes, I know I said she wasn’t helping me.      She just showed up for the fun part- the actual donating!!)

slob, humor, back into house

All that will go  back into the house.

Y’all, I’m seriously proud of myself!!       I felt such a high, from dumping all that excess stuff!      I wanted to get going on another space!        Good thing XH has better sense.         He sent me inside to get cool, and drink water.      Why I didn’t have it with me, I doan know.       So, I stretched out in my recliner, rehydrated, and ate 2 ice cream bars, for good measure.       Had to bring my temperature down, didn’t I??

And, then I realized I was tired!!      So glad he stopped me!

 


Total House Time Before: 10 hrs 28 min.

Total Shed Time Now: 1 hr x 2 people= 2 hrs

Real Total House Time, fer sure: 12 hrs and 28 min.                  {so far….}

Still have 1 bathroom, 1 bedroom, the porch, and the workshop to go!     I’m exhausted again, already!      Oh, yeah, and I haven’t even finished the Scullery yet!

Seven Seconds Shed- today’s story.

 

Now I’m skipping on to Day six- Garage.      Well, in my case, shed, since I have no garage! I know, I just skipped to Day Four, with Sisters’ Scene, now here I am skipping to 6.         What in the world??        Do I have no sense of mathematical linear time lines??        Nope!       Well, yes I do, have a sense of them.        Just choosing not to apply them!

When I cleaned out the girls’ bedroom, I had to have some place to put all the stuff!!     (So actually I did this day first, but I didn’t want to totally blow your minds by skipping too many days at once!!)

 

slob, humor, old recycling

Why did she save these recyclables??    Can you guess where they went???

The shed, dun, dun, DUN!!  Quite a mess!

I’ve been here 15 months, and only ventured out there twice.     

This is all my own mess.       Well, no, not really.        I found 2 more boxes that had been left by the previous owner!!        DD1 said “Trash ’em!!     Obviously she doesn’t really miss ’em!”         So, I did!      Much to my own surprise!       It wasn’t even MY stuff, and I still felt anxiety just dumping it into the trash, just higgledy-piggledy!        Then the box of recyclables, that she was saving for……?????

And the purple shopping cart, and orange wagon were pulled out, and immediately put into play!  (First top pic.)

The bag of cement, that is hard as a rock, is waiting for stronger arms than ours to remove it!!

The brown, wooden, slatted box in the bottom, left pic, middle shelf, is an egg box, DD1 said, after looking in it.     She was just gonna recycle it, but I said “Wait!!”      We can sell that!!”    (Yeah, I should probably just go back, and put it out by the road, huh??)

Ahhhh!!        So much better!!       Not perfect, just better.

Not done yet tho!!      Still plenty of mess to declutter!

 

Shed time: 1 hr and 15 min. each, for 2 people: 2 hr and 30 min.

Total house time before: 7 hr 58 min.

Total House Time After Today: 10 hrs and 28 min.

 

Any guess as to the total time when I finally finish??

Declutterathon Dresser Drawers

slob, humor, declutterathon

Finally- day 21!!       It seems like it’s taken me a month longer than everybody else to do a 3 week challenge!!      (Maybe because it HAS??      Queen Anne finished hers on Sept. 25! )

FPPPTT!!     (Exactly how do you spell that rude raspberry noise??)       Never mind, this’ll do.      slob, humor, raspberry

Alrightey, then!      Let’s dive straight into the straightening!!  

Timer set?       Ready, steady, set, GO!!      slob, humor, GO!

Top drawer revealed:   slob, humor, cluttered drawer  Dresser drawers!!      Not Southern type “drawers”!!

slob, humor, cluttered drawer   2nd drawer.      slob, humor, not too bad    3rd drawer.

Need to find the pic of the bottom drawer!!

In the top drawer I had tons of expired meds.      NOT good!!        I know, I know!!

slob, humor, cluttered     Aha!   Here it is!      The bottom drawer pic, I mean.     Okay, back to the expired meds.       Lots and LOTS of expired med!   

Lots, and LOTs of expired meds!      slob, humor, expired medicine      13 bottles, 1 baggy, and 2 boxes.        The top box is not even my med!       How do I have my Mama’s med???        So, I have it bagged up to take to the expired med. drop off place.        Thanks, Queen Anne for the info on finding that expired med. drop off place.      Also in the top drawer, was a memory T-shirt.       slob, humor, old memory     It seems unreal that I used to fit into this shirt!        No, we don’t need to mention how many years ago!!       My college BFF, Joyous, gave it to me, after she graduated our college, and moved on to the next one.      (3 guesses what it was! )       It is now in the memory box.

Also, a purple little bin, and a charging cord.       slob, humor, clutter       Could this be the charging cord for the laptop I already gave away???        If it is, happily, the lady lives just down the street!

Oh my, that 2nd drawer!!        What a literal treasure trove!!         I wonder how many elementary treasure chests you could stock outta that drawer??

Let’s see:

slob, humor, art- not clutter!slob, humor, not clutterslob, humor, art- not clutter! slob, humor, art- not clutterslob, humor, not clutter! just needs installedslob, humor, clutter?

Well, maybe not the vinyl letters…..      And the light switch plate is slated for the girls’ room.

slob, humor, nope, not a pair  Nice pair of purple gloves!!           Nope, not a pair.         Seriously??         Now we’re gonna start the whole thing over again, but with single gloves???              slob, humor, matched pair        Well, at least I have  1 matched pair!!         And since winter is only approx 49 hours long, I think I’ll be okay.      So the 2 spares went in file 13.        Yay!       Another slam dunk!          (But speaking of winter- where’s my hat?????)

Look what the 3rd drawer had in store, Jen!    slob, humor, single sock = clutter!      These single socks seem determined to follow in our very foot steps!!          Buh, bye!

slob, humor, clutter?    Bottom held this gem, along with fabric.        The fabric was shifted over to the left side, along with all the other fabric.       Now, what to do with this???   I no longer take breathing treatments.        (And haven’t in the last 8 years.     I do believe I’m good!)       But do I keep it just in case I ever do??           If I can donate it, where??           Questions, questions, everywhere, and no answers in sight.       I need a little Nony help right now!       I guess I’ll call the pharmacy, and see what they say.

Dresser drawers denuded:

Top.   slob, humor, declutteredslob, humor, decluttered    How neat and organized!!        I love it!!          Thank you!!           (IF you’re wondering what those vials are, they held the expired epi-pens.      Nony suggested keeping them for little stuff.         Like PP’s confetti, maybe??        Definitely!!)

2nd dresser drawer.   slob, humor, decluttered. just not organized      Ummm, well…. it’s decluttered …        Yup!  Undies only!!              And socks.             Yes, undies- tops, and bottoms, and socks.          But certainly not Kon-maried!!           And that’s ok.         It’s decluttered, only undies are there, and I’m all good with that!!

3rd drawer.         slob, humor, decluttered. not organized. There's a difference.         The all jammies, all the time drawer!           I’m excited that now I know where to put stuff, and I can find it now!!

Bottom:  The piece de resistance!              slob, humor, all decluttered!!

Just look at all that lovely empty space!!        Woot Woot!        I’m so proud of you!!         Thank you!!       I’m quite proud of myself!         Now, the trick is to keep it like that!!         You know they will want to see an update in a month or so!       I’ll keep that in mind!

Thus endeth the Royal Challenge of the Declared Declutterathon.        Queen Anne hath declared her pleasure with all her Ladies-In-Waiting!!

Declutterathon Dish Deposit

slob, humor, declutterathon

Well, I was sitting in my recliner, surveying my kingdom living room, and enjoying the view.     The nice, uncluttered, clean deceptively clean looking, view.      And, I was thinking of what my next Declutterathon project could possibly be; since my whole house was pretty much decluttered down to the bone!

AHA!!       Or so you thought!!         Yes, or so I thought!       Until my roving eyes landed on this.     slob, humor, corner hutch

Oh yeah, the corner hutch/ china cabinet/dish deposit place.       (At least, that’s what Granny always used it for; me?     This and that, some of whatever thrown in for good measure.)

I thought it looked like some books on the top shelf, but I wasn’t positively sure, so I ventured closer.    slob, humor, corner hutch- clutter?     Sure enough!     Books!!       Lots of books!!

slob, humor, books!     12 to be exact!      How did I not go thru these already when I went thru books last time??        Got me!        Anyway, the cookbook is a no-brainer donate!   Then the 8 romances went straight into the trash.     I still can’t understand how they’ve been here in my house the last 11 months, when I’ve been purging so much!!

slob, humor, clutter        And the 3 keepers.     slob, humor, not clutter

Grace Livingston Hill romances are so sweet, old fashioned, and Christian.      She includes the plan of salvation in each one.      Remember when I agonized so over my 3 boxes of Graces????      Some that I’d had for 4 decades??       Yeah, well, I still think about them occasionally, but still haven’t cried over them!!       (And I know I could still name a large percentage of them too!     I loved those books!!     But as it turns out, I’m loving my clean open spaces even more!)

Then the drawer, in the middle.     slob, humor, clutter      In my other trailer, this was supposed to be my office drawer, since I didn’t have a desk.     Now that I have a desk, all this has a home to go to.      YAY for knowing where stuff belongs!

slob, humor, decluttered      Ah!     Looks good!        Ahem.        Oh, okay, except for those 3 things it looks good.       I’ll take care of them, but no need for another pic!

 

Then the shelves below.     slob, humor, some clutter       Not too bad!  Only 2 things!!      The printer paper goes in the desk.       Let’s see what that other thing is.

slob, humor, clutter     A box.      A completely empty box.       Since I’ve been using the antenna for 10 months now, I think it’s safe to say I’m keeping it!       Recycle away!            slob, humor, all decluttered!        Empty shelves never looked so good!

 

No dishes deposited here, and no more junk books either!!
