Memorial Memes

Ok, this Monday, we are doing memorial memes for Memorial Day.     No funnies, just respect.

slob, humor, military memorial

We need to remember our fallen military.

       This one makes me want to cry, the father mourning his courageous son. 

slob, Memorial DAy  slob, Memorial Day

Today we remember, and celebrate ALL our fallen military.     Whatever branch, whatever war or conflict.       They died for our freedom.      It’s our duty to live in a way that honors their sacrifices.

Thank you God, that we live in a free country, and thank You for all the brave souls who fought to keep us that way.

slob, Memorial Day

slob, Memorial Day

I used to blithely say “Happy Memorial Day.”     Till someone called my attention to it.   It’s not a happy day.     It’s a somber day.     It’s a thankful day, but not frivolous.

Stay safe, thank a veteran, and be sure to tell them, you’re glad they made it back alive.

Seven Seconds Siesta- my bedroom

Approach with caution.     The first thing that happened:

slob, humor, crib innards

Crib guts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The crib threw up.     I told SF I was decluttering, and to please come get it, since he bought it, and PPJr’s little tushy barely even touched the mattress!      In the whole 13 months of her life so far, probably less than 5 hours of it were ever spent in that crib!     And of course, for some crazy reason, he wanted it empty! The nerve!

Here he is, trundling it out the door.

slob, humor, crib deserter

I helped!!

(Well, not helping so much as holding it back so I can snap a pic!!)     When SF has a job to do, he gets it done pronto!    No time for this standing around, posing for pix!

So, I had to sort thru all that mess.     Then I decided to comb thru these shelves again.

slob, humor, attacking junk AGAIN

Lots of work to do yet.

Here are all the books I kept.

slob, humor, keep box

All I kept, of the books.

                                                                                                                 Remember this shot??    

slob, humor, knowledge is power

Self explanatory

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yeah, and because I stupidly took a pic of the Men’s version, instead of women’s, (I just can’t keep a secret!) some people thought something was up!     Susie was right, there was something up.        XH and I started dating again in Jan.    

slob, humor, dating again!

Happy Days are here again!

But, it didn’t work out, again.     We even went to counseling again, with a man this time!   I was still too bossy, and he felt I was pressuring him too much.       sigh         Curtis warned me decades ago, that I was too bossy!

Sooooo, all the re-marriage books back out the door.       Just gonna keep working on me, and enjoy my life, and my family, and get tons of sugars from my grandbabies!!       Best hugs, and kisses in the world!       BUT!!        Cry Baby Bear’s still here!!      I can’t let my first ever stuffie go!!      How would she survive this cruel world, without my tender loving care??

slob, humor, well loved Cry Baby Bear

I know, she doesn’t look well cared for, you might say. Well, I put those stitches there myself!! (the red ones)

Okay, back to the job at hand.      At this point, a different day, DD1 joined me.

I did de-clutter the box of candy!     Fine, I did eat 1 piece first.    That’s how I knew it HAD to be de-cluttered!!       Got rid of half the stuff in the big grey basket, that I was totally gonna spray paint…..      Then chucked the basket as well.      And tossed the craft kit, in the white box behind the light bulb.      I have such big ideas of ALL the crafts PP and I are gonna do!!!!!     And, I’m giving away the brown machine table.    My legs do NOT fit under it comfortably!!       I think I heard a rumor a while back, that I was too old to put up with torn, broken, uncomfortable stuff…..     Anybody else remember that??

The teal hamper is full of donate.     I even donated half of the material, in the 4 drawers of that dresser!!      SO hard to let go!!

Both white hampers full of donate!      Cleared off top of dresser.     Got rid of cloth book, cuz button tires were loose.     Why didn’t I just sew them tighter???       Ummm, do you remember one of my slob failings is also laziness???

slob, humor, pix pared down

This green tub of pix, was so jammed full, I couldn’t close it!

So, I pared the pix down.       (Down really does need to be a “P” word, doesn’t it??)

slob, humor, cut it out!!

Pared down with a pair of scissors.

For some reason, I’ve always been a vicious photo editor.       My Mama first saw me cutting up pix, when I was about 12, for an album I was making.   I truly thought she was gonna faint!      Apparently pix were sacrosanct!      How dare I mar their perfection by trimming them willy-nilly?!      

And this time, I even threw away the duplicates, fuzzy, and faded beyond recognition ones too!!       Score!     I’d kept some of them over 40 years!      It’s hard to say goodbye!

slob, humor, box closes now

There now, it’s shut!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pic of Joyous, my college BFF.     I love that girl!!      We are such good friends, we called each other Jonathan, and David!      And twins!!       From the first time our eyes connected, in Speech class, we knew what each other was thinking!!      It was wonderful!

And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.
{Some people misuse this verse to support homosexuality.     No, it’s friendship love, not sexual. }
Anyhoo, it was a great stroll down memory lane, with the pix.
This was great fun!!     I bought this doll before Christmas, but with all the drama, my plan didn’t happen.       Michelle had a walking doll, just like this when she was about 7 or 8, named Rosemary.   [Which coincidentally, is our present stepmother’s name!]    She hated it!      It was so big, and Mama stood it up, in the corner of our room!      None of us realized she was terrified of it!!

So, I texted this pic to her yesterday:

slob, humor, doll trick

Hello, old friend!

Followed by this one:                              slob, humor, doll taunt

Making sure the eyes were wide open!         Bwahahahaha!        She texted back that it was funny, so I hope she didn’t have nightmares!

Alrightey, I gotta stop having so much fun, and purge already!!

I donated the doll, too.  The joke was totally worth the $6 I paid for her!!      At least to me!        Michelle might have a different opinion!

Sadly, I didn’t take pix of this donate haul.      Trust me, it was a big one!!

Feeelz so good to unload so much stuff!!

Previous House Time: 17 hrs 28 min

Today’s Time: 2 hours for me, 1 hour for DD1, and should I count the 10 min for SF taking the crib??    He did have to fold it up, and roll it ALL the way down the hall!!     Of course I should!!        Total Today’s Time: 3 hrs 10 min

Total House Time to Date: 20 hrs 38 min

Poor, poor Ashley!      Nobody tell her about this, ok??     It’ll be our little secret!       I can trust y’all not to blab, can’t I??

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??

God’s Gift

My friend, Elizabeth, from the Comfortable Coop, also wrote a wonderful Resurrection Sunday post, just like Cami’s, that I re-blogged yesterday.

 

http://thecomfortablecoop.com/2017/04/14/my-easter-to-do-list/

It reminded me once again, to give first place to Jesus, my Savior, always!!       Resurrection Sunday, (Easter), is to celebrate His resurrection from the dead!!   He gave His life on the cross, for our salvation, just because He loves us!!      Praise the Lord forever!

God’s not dead, He is alive!!     

slob, Jesus' empty tomb

Hosanna!

I’m 5 hrs, 43 minutes in, and I’m still stuck between Days 1 & 2!      Yikes!

I know I’m probably confusing you, by working on the dining table, then the refridge, now back to the table.        Please bear with me!        (PS, just remember, I finally did Komplish Kim’s kwilt!!)

Back to what we’re doing.

slob, humor, messy glittery, gluey mess

Try, try again.

Believe it or not, I spent the first 13 min scraping glitter, and glue off the table.        You might have the mistaken notion that cleaning is not technically de-cluttering.          Just think about it, I’m getting rid of unwanted, unnecessary, and unusable stuff, tiny as it is!     Sounds like de-cluttering to me!

And just so you know, a blunt tip popsicle stick is NOT the most helpful tool, for scraping g & g.

slob, humor, cleaning with popsicle stick

Sticking it to the table.

Duh!        Besides, God created thumbnails first!

slob, humor, cleaning

Swishy, swashy

Clean table-  aahhhh!            So satisfying!          

slob, humor, nice clean table

Niiiice!

I even got rid of those hearts!         (Remember how I just ignored them last time?       Cookie Chaos Calmed.)        

It’s looking so good, I went ahead and restarted the timer!      

Resurrection Sunday fancy:  Well, it is coming up….

slob, humor, girls' pretty headband

So pretty in pink!

Now, if only I could convince either of the girls to wear it!        They are both firm believers that bare (head) is better!

More Christmas:       Shock, shock, NOT!

slob, humor, Christmas still!!

Still in the clutches of Christmas….

More stuff….

Put it away.

And lookee here.    What happens when you wear your glasses on the back of your head, then accidentally tilt backwards, just a little…

slob, humor, glasses in tank

It could happen to anyone, right??                        [crickets ]                        Surely I’m not the only one who’s ever had it happen, am I??              [louder crickets]

At least they didn’t fall into the business end!!          SO.VERY.THANKFUL!!

thankful face

Back to the table:  it looks lots better.         And now you can really tell I’m making a dent in it!

slob, humor, less mess

Looking good! Right??

Well, maybe ya can’t tell, but I am!!


Previous Scullery Time: 3 hrs 32 min

Adding today’s 30= 4 hrs 2 min

Total  House Time Thus Far: 6 hrs 13 min               Since it’s almost 7 hours, I’m nearly done, right???

Please don’t bust a gut laughing, that’s bound to leave a mark.

Patrick’s Page

This was my St Patrick’s Day post from 2015.        Wearing O’ the Green.

So, this year I thought I’d research it a tiny bit more.         Here’s what I learned.

From the website: http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/2008/august/real-st-patrick.html

slob, humor, St Patrick

The “Real St. Patrick”

“Patrick isn’t really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn’t have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with.”

“Though he was not solely responsible for converting the island, Patrick was quite successful. He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”

 

But, he DID use the shamrock to explain the Trinity, right??

Well, according to this website, no.     It was all just legends.

http://catholichotdish.com/the-pastors-page/saint-patrick-the-shamrock-and-the-trinity/

“There are several popular legends about how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.”

Being as how I wasn’t there, I am not gonna argue the point.      I do think it’s a great illustration!

Alright, now on to my St Patrick’s Day stuff.           You already saw my mantel.

slob, humor, St Pat's Day shelf   From Seven Seconds Scullery Scape.

Now, here’s my porch door, outside.   

slob, humor, door shamrocks             slob, humor, door shamrocks  Porch door inside.

   

                                  Front door, outside.                       Front door, inside.                                              

And I also put one on Vanronica’s window, PP’s side.    And immediately she said “Wheah’s baby _____(PPJr)’s??”         Bless her heart, for being so sweet to her baby sister!!         (Now, I gotta go take one down off the mantel, and tape it to the baby’s side!!)                                   

  Here’s some funny stuff I saw at the store.

I want these tights!!     Of course, I’d have to wear them on my arms…..                                       And the white fuzzy things are leg warmers!!!     LOL

Ok, so that’s all the green I got going on today.
