Bad Brian’s Bwahahahas

Of course Brian’s full name is Bad Luck Brian, but you know why I had to leave out the “L” word.

Just like the Crazy Girlfriend, I love Bad Luck Brian!     His memes are full of bwhahahahas!   Even tho his life is one big tragedy, ya just can’t help but look, just like a wreck!

Dr’s Donations

DD2, yes the Dr.!, left lots of stuff behind, when she graduated and began her “grownup real” life.   She was driving up to WV, to start her job, and couldn’t take everything with her.   That’s how I ended up with her full size bed.   (Can you imagine trying to drive all the way to WV, with a bed strapped to the roof of your car??   Wise choice, my girl!)

slob, humor, bed on car

Notice the arm clutching the mattress!   That’ll hold it for sure!!

Anything that she had outgrown as a student, and wouldn’t need as a professional.   Also, things from her apt that her new roomie already had.

As none of the clothes would fit me,

slob, humor, winky

You saw her in the grad. pix, she’s small!! But tall!

I tried first to give them to family members.   My nieces had already gotten new clothes for school, so no go there.   A few of the T-shirts were so small, PP could wear them as big sleep shirts.   The rest I donated to Salvation Army.

Shockingly, there were brand new school supplies!   Lol     Some of these went to Michelle’s Living Liberty Camp, which teaches kids the real history of the founding of America, including that our Founding Fathers were Christians!!   Others went to Harvest Church, for their back to school outreach.

The coffee pot went to SA, cuz I don’t drink the nasty brew.

The George Foreman grill, went to a friend of Rose’s.

(And did I remember to take pix of ANY of this??   Why nooooooo, of course not!)

The shoes were my size, in length, but my feet are nowhere near as skinny as hers!!    So, I even missed there.

However, the scarves!     Those, I could fit!!                                                                                   Too bad, I hate scarves.

slob, humor, frowny face

This is my not happy face.

Anyway, more stuff purged from my house!   YAY!!   (And it wasn’t even my stuff to begin with!   But, once it’s in the door, back out it’s got to go!)

 

Fragile Frog

PP was so excited to get out onto the porch!   She had been cooped up, like a chicken!    The porch represented freedom!    Her kitchen was out there!   Her chalks were out there!   Her sand box was out there!   Everything good and desirable was out there!

Anyway, you get the drift.

So, we came out on the porch.   As I sat down, with PPJr in my arms, I saw something move, outta the corner of my eye.    Happily, I’m not a nervous Nellie!    I figured it was a gecko.

Nope!   It was a small frog!   I called PP’s attention to it, and she was over there like a shot!

I thought she’d be entertained for awhile, chasing it back and forth.   When it went under the scooter, she started calling to it “Come back, fwog, come back!”

And do you know, it did!

She was patient, and stalked her prey…

She caught it!

 

slob, humor, captured frog

PP- the Great White Frog Hunter

 

After playing with it for a long while, she put it down, and said, “It not wowk {work} Omie!” I said “Uh, oh.   Maybe he’s tired.”    (Tired to death???)

She kept watching it, talking to, and encouraging it.   In a few minutes, she clapped her hands, and shouted with delight, “It wowking, Omie!!  It wowking!!”

And persistent little frog hopped away.    Not far, or fast enough, however!   She caught him again, easier this time!   And, repeat.

Now, she brought him to me, when he stopped working again.   I think I see the problem…

slob, humor, frog

Maybe he was hopping too hard???.

 

 

Poor froggie, RIP.    He was loved too well, and too often.

Reminiscing Rememberances

When a friend , Kristen, started a homemaking blog, TheRoadtoDomestication, I was excited for her!  She just got married, so yay! We can learn things together.  But she’s a natural born “cleanie” and organizer, and I AM NOT.  It frustrated me that things that were simple for her made no sense to me, and I tried, but just COULDN’T do them.  So, while I was happy for her, I was still depressed for me.

Then I heard about FLYLady.  She has flybabies, well then maybe I can do that!  But, her first thing was to get up, shower and dress all the way down to shoes, and makeup.  I didn’t have any makeup, and only wore shoes outside!  So, before we even started, I was already a loser!  Than made me super upset and frustrated.

Then I finally had the bright idea to Google slob, (best thing I ever did for my home!!) and found NONY from the SlobComesClean, and the angels sang! She gets me!!  She’s just like me!!  I had found my tribe!!

I started reading her, then a month later, decided to start my own blog, (this very one!) to document my own journey out of slobbery.

Lots of things have happened between now and then.  DD1 and PP have moved out, DD1 and SIL have gotten married, now with PPJr on the way!!

I have moved twice!!!

my first place all on my own

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

 

DH and I separated, and now on the way to being divorced.

I have learned how to de-clutter!!  I have learned to do dishes!!! (before they mildew even!!)

I’ve broken my back, (can’t find the right post for some reason, oh well, back to my sentence) gotten back on track with health, gone GF, gone back on that, and gone back to GF!!

Whew! That’s a lot of switchbacks!

I’ve organized!  (With help, of course.)

I’ve lost a brother-in-law.  This one is the worst.  Death is horrible, the effects last as long as you live.  The only consolation we have , is that we will see him again in heaven.  So, cherish all your loved ones.  Kiss and hug, and say “I love you” everyday.  You never know when it will be your last chance.

So, here we are, today, January 25, 2016.   A year and a half later, I’m still slogging, cleaning, de-cluttering, and learning.   And I love my life!   Thanks everyone for coming along with me!!  I appreciate y’all so much for taking your time out of your busy life, to read what I have to say, and comment.  Y’all are the best!!  Hugs and kisses to all!

I love my readers

I love you, my readers!!

{I can NOT believe I didn’t say PURPLE one time in this WHOLE post!  I had to remedy that real quick like!}

MY newest new place!

Finally!  After OVER a month!  Here are the pix of my newest new place!  Just the outside, though.

2 plants front of trailer

Part of my “Front” garden.

 

 

 

purple passion plant

Purple Passion Plants!

purple flower

Purple Flower

 

Or wandering Jew, as my SIL calls them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And yes, that’s the official name. lol  According to me.  It is also the sole occupant of my “Side Garden.”

Those last 2 plants are the 2 I most wanted in my other garden, but never went to the actual trouble of getting any!!  Then, God gave them to me here in my newest home!!  God is so good, all the time!!  He cares about me, and my life, even tiny little details, like what plants I like!

 

Still working on inside!!  I had the living room, kitchen/dining room party ready for Christmas Eve, but you know what happened 2 days later… yeah, slobbery overran the place.  😦   (Don’t ya love how I blamed the slobbery, instead of myself????)

Anyhoo, back to the pix:

Front views:

flag front window

Flag still flying high!

 

 

 

 

 

Front.    

front entry

Front Entry

Yeah, the recycling can doesn’t look the best there, does it??   sigh   Yet another sign of my laziness.

carport

The carport- duh! there’s Captain Obvious again!

 

Right side:  

right side trailer central air unit

 Notice the central air unit!!

See that scraggedy bush?  That’s the right side of my “Front Garden”.   It’s a yellow rose bush, which can’t be proven by it now!   But I was excited to see it, because it was Granny’s favorite flower!

I didn’t take a pic of the butterfly sculpture over the carport, because it has already worn out it’s welcome, by just existing!!

Boy, am I cranky or what??? 

I didn’t take any back views, because who wants to see more moldy siding???   Oh, wait, there’s a hand in the back.  “Hi, there. Yes, you, in the multi striped shirt.  You want to see more moldy siding???   Ok, just scroll back up and re-look at those pix there!   Thanks!”

Inside pix to come at a later, undetermined date, when I have the rooms back to non-disaster status.   {Please don’t hold your breath.  Not responsible for any fainting you may incur.}

 

There you go- Home Sweet Home. Again!  Hopefully Forever this time!  [But not gonna say “Never  Moving Again!!  Because that is the surest way in the world to ensure that I’d be moving again shortly.  Not.Gonna.Happen.]

I MEAN IT!!

Fine Feathered Furniture

Oops!  that should be Leathered . Lol

Not only did the lady leave the library legacy, but lovely leather loungers, as well!!

uncluttered couch

Clean, uncluttered couch!

 

 

Oops, forgot to take shot of the 2 recliners!  Sorry!  Look just like the couch, except… they are recliners.  Lol, I’m here, Capt. Obvious again!

 

 

My old recliner “Old Blue Bomb” was shot. And needed to be put out of its and my misery.

I was so thrilled when I walked in and saw these 3 pieces! I looked around in disbelief- she surely will be coming back!! She couldn’t be leaving this!!

Sat right down, reclined and body said “ah!” A sigh of contentment! Butt not dragging the floor!!

There is a little bit of damage on one of the recliner arms.

20151214_163102

Yeah, this one looks like it needs amputating!  Don’t worry, it’s just a flesh wound!

But I ‘ve got some material to cover that up in a trice!

Real living room furniture again. Yay!!

Now, how do you dye large leather pieces???

Library Legacy

So, here I am in my newest “new” place!  I love it even more than my “old” new place!!  (Extra bonus- another place to purpelize!!)

And the owner blessed me with so many things left behind!!

Here’s a biggie:

20151130_072658

I’ve always wanted a library in my house!!  Now, I’ve got it!!  For free!!  (Gift with purchase!)

I’ll even read some of them!  There was a “The Power of a Praying Woman”, by Stormie O’Martian.  Very excited by that one.   Prayer is a powerful weapon, in our Christian arsenal.

And 6 “Amish” books.  Love those!

A half shelf full of cookbooks.  Eeks!  Not those!!  I don’t wanna do the “C” word anymore!!!!!!!!

Then other assorted novels that I will donate.  Yay, me!!  More de-cluttering!!!!

20151130_145629

{This box was packed by PP personally!  She loved throwing the books off the shelves into boxes!  And I loved the help!}

box of books

So was this one. She loves to help!!

 

 

 

De-cluttering is a good thing!
