Something Smells

Do you see anything wrong with this picture?   Me either!   Except maybe the..

But, since we all know who and what I am, I might not be the best judge of something being wrong.   Just saying might.   After all, I don’t usually notice something stinks until the stench is so overwhelming that it grabs me by the throat, and literally tries to choke the life outta me!

Sweet Friend is forever and a day coming in and saying, “Something stinks in here.”   (So wonderful to have such friends.   {eye roll}   At least I know he’ll never lie to me!)   So, I tell him , “Sniff away!   When you find it, get rid of it!”   And women are supposed to have a keener sense of smell!!   I guess mine is deadened.    Maybe it just gave up and died??

So anyway, back to the pic.

slob, humor, DD1's fridge

DD1’s now in the kitchen.

This is our refridge in the 8 house.     And remember the electric was turned off after 2 weeks??     Yeah…

XH had removed all the food, before that happened, and brought it to the new apartment.     

 Except…….   a skillet full of food.        That was left in there.

I DO NOT even want to go back over there!!       I know I have to.       And I have to re-open the fridge, and take out that skillet.       Maybe I can just bag it up, and throw it away??        Maybe DD1 won’t notice that her biggest frying pan is missing…     

Will she??

If you never see another post by me again, you’ll know I died of food poisoning (the air).

Donatables Done

Not the Rubbermaid tote of donatables, but it IS a Rubbermaid tote of our stuff!      And yes, you have seen this pic before.     I have to start recycling the pix, just like the posts!

 

slob, humor, DD1's things

Rubbermaid tote.

 

Last Monday, about 3 weeks ago now, I worked on 4  kitchen cabinets.       Going thru and de-cluttering, and evaluating expiration dates on the food.     Do you know how hard that stuff is to read???       My eyes almost gave out, before the rest of me did!

It wore me out!!


But at the end of the afternoon, I had a half of a huge Rubbermaid tote full to donate! And some food to give away.

I felt so wonderful, to get that much done in a day!!        Yes, the feeling of accomplishment, and pride was there, underneath the exhaustion!

Shame Shunned

Yep, you thought I was fresh outta shameful secrets, huh?

Nope!!

This decision has been a long- long- super long time in coming!!

And no, I did not scrabble thru the garbage to retrieve them!       Aren’t we proud of me??

Yes, I am- quite!!

Thank you, really!!           And I don’t even miss them!                       What rolls of film?????   Shame shunned!!         Another decades long weight off my shoulders!

 


(Haha!    I outsmarted you, WP lack of memory storage!!)

Tiny Teal Table

Authoress51 was worried that I had run outta material.     No, just money!!     I have bought my own dot com, but can’t get it working yet.      And I’m out of storage here on the WP free plan…..     So, until I can get something worked out, I have to recycle.        This is a new post, because I had already loaded the one pic.     I had 3 more, that I wanted to add, but can’t.  😦       I hate publishing posts without pix!!       Thanks for the concern, Authoress!

 

 

Well, it definitely is tiny.        And certainly a table.      The teal part, eh, not so much.       But, it is blue!        Which teal is a kind of…..

When I lived in the trailer, PPJr , oops!   ChunkChunk, was in her high chair, and PP sat at the tiny, teal table, and the grown ups used TV trays.           Since CC has outgrown her high chair, she now sits at on a stool, at the dining room table, alongside PP.         S0 now we had no more use for the ttt.

DD1 decided it would make a great plant stand, and out to the porch it went.        That worked for awhile.    

Then, it was time for a switch up.       The plants went elsewhere, and the tiny teal table…..

Was left lonely, littered with leaves.       (And plant stakes.)

slob, humor, littered table

Littered with leaves, and plant stakes.

And DD1 decided it was no longer needed in our home, due to its poor condition!       The corners were the worse for wear, and the babies had decided it was too fluffy, and had been pulling the stuffing out, stealthily, for some time.

(Look in the top left corner, really closely!)

Pop was the pall bearer, for the disposal of the body.       Thanks, Pop.        He is so dignified and respectful.

You served us well, tiny, teal table.

Wild n Wooly

For some reason now, I want to sing that song, “Wooly Bully”!

(I think those are the correct words.      Won’t swear on it.)

This was my post on Aug. 26, 2014.

Wasn’t it cute how I made such a big deal outta mopping??!!         

Ok, yeah, I know, I still do!

PP’s Playroom

Well, it’s time to face the lion’s den: PP’s playroom.          I’m scared, Mommy!!        Hold me!

The outlook, going in.        Or should that be the inlook????

Nope, no sound, I forgot!  Sorry!      I will get better at this, I promise!!

You’re right, if you think not all of that is PP’s!!      A lot of the closet turned out to be mine, and DD1’s.

DD1’s memory box, and some clothes. 

My purple suitcase.        But not empty, as DD thought!!           Surprise!!           Smart fabric stash!

Plus 2 books.

My Grandma book, to fill with info about me, for PP, and CC to read later!           And my small wedding album, from marrying Bobby.        My lost love, who’s in heaven.

And now, more room, for more fabric!!                    Don’t even think about it!!

slob, humor, fabrics folded

Fold ’em up!

I knew I had more of those fabric squares!!        Found ’em finally!!        I couldn’t proceed with the twin’s quilts till I did!!

The big blue bag, was mixed clothes, girls’ and DD’s.

So since they’re never used, the toddler beds can go, as well as the pool.         They are both so tall, both couldn’t sit in there at one time!!        And I’m not gonna try to make them take turns for that!!

Not sure what we’re gonna do with her buttons, and marbles yet.        I know we’re keeping ALL her rocks!!         She’s been collecting those for 3 years now!

Probably won’t remember to take a video of her clean room, or a pic either.          Because by that time, we’ll be gone!             😉

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!
