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!!)

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!             😉

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!!)

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!


An Irma post brought to you by the letter “O” and ice cream.

Judicious Jewelry Jet

Last week, after my nerves had settled down after Irma, I needed to do a quick purge of something!

So, I looked around, and decided to grab my jewelry box.      Which I have not even opened since we’ve moved here, back mid-May!

Here it is:                                                                                                   Inside:

slob, humor, lots of jewelry junk

So.Many.Things.

slob, humor, jewelry box

Such an appropriate slogan!

An overwhelming pile of junk stuff.            Ok, ok, let’s separate it into categories.

Earrings:

How many sets of ears do I think I actually have????

Other things:

Whoa!!      Whaaaaaat???         Just start with the earrings.

Okay, deep breath!!        Strawberry earrings, 3 pairs exactly alike; so I can probably get rid of 2.      Good!       A brand new pair, with magnet, that have not even been opened!!   That I’ve had since 2011!!       Guaranteed I will not miss them!         And 1 single.      Jet!!   I don’t do singles, and certainly not posts anymore!!          See ya!

Now, out of ten items, only 2 left.       Excellent!!

Next!!

slob, humor, shamrock earrings              2 shamrock sets; I can only wear 1 pair at a time, and St. Patrick’s Day is only once a year, so 1 set has to go.      Shoo!!

slob, humor, sparkly earrings

All the sparkles!!

                                                                                I don’t like the pink ones, because they snag.                                                      And I’m just over the others.

Whew!       Those were all pretty easy to work thru.         But,   Dun Dun DUN!!       Now here comes all the purples!!!!

slob, humor, all the purple earrings
All the purples!

10 pairs of purples, to be exact.

I hope I can do this without crying!!

I let them all go.       Say what??  

I let them all go…..

And I didn’t even cry!!

Next!  slob, humor, light bulb earringsslob, humor, DD2 made these

These pretty cross ones were made for me by DD2.    Not going anywhere!!       The light bulbs are my only Christmas ones.        Staying!

Next!

Melinda, I just wanna tell you, ya’re doing good!!      I’m proud of you!        Thanx!                   I appreciate that!

slob, humor, 2 misc earrings, and a bobby pin      Huh, well, easy enuff, be gone!

These are tie pins, so technically jewelry, I guess??

Honor roll pin from  high school???    college????       I didn’t even remember I had it, so no pain to let it go.         DCT pin, I know is from HS.        Don’t even care now.       Bye!     And tiny baby feet, to protest abortion.        I will keep 1 set, just not both.  

Next!!

Charms:

slob, humor, necklace charms
I don’t wear necklaces ever, so….

The purple heart, and the strawberry can go.       The 2 pix charms, I have larger sizes of both pix, so they can go.          The HS key??        I’m keeping, because I lost my class ring, so this is in lieu of that.

Now onto more misc. stuff that is not jewelry!

The clear cover is to my seam ripper.       It will go back on there, so I don’t lose a finger!    Scissors will go in sewing stuff.        Ya think??          Foreign coins are from Mama.              I care nothing about them, and she cares a lot!        So, back to her they go!            The amethyst I’m keeping for now.            And the angel is from Bubba, so she stays too.

I forgot about 2 other pair of earrings, till I was scrolling thru my phone, but I got rid of them, so no pix necessary.

NOW:   Introducing my new and improved jewelry box!  

slob, humor, jewelry bottle, not box!
My new jewelry box!

 

 

 

 

 

                        FYI, jewelry bottle might be more descriptive.


I purged so hard!!      I really am proud of myself!       Numbers gone:

Earrings:  46/56!!         Charms:  4/5      Tie tacks: 3/4      Coins: 2/2      Misc: 3/5

58 outta 72  things gone!!

And as Jen says, “I never have to touch them again!”
