Shower Show

Just reread one of Nony’s old posts that you’re supposed to hang your shower curtain to dry- in the shower.

WHAT??? You’re supposed to wash those things???   That’s a new one on me!

My MO usually is to ignore the mildew and black mold, until it has crept ALL the way up the curtain, and I get contact dermatitis from brushing into it.  

mildew on shower curtain

In my defense: I inherited this shower curtain. Oh wait- that makes it worse, doesn’t it???

Just like those those dratted 2 year old dishes of mine.

 

 

sigh

 

 

I’m not made outta money, ya know!   I can’t afford to replace that thing every month!   (Even tho I totally buy them at the dollar store!)

But washing it, and hanging it back up to dry- huh.   Who woulda thunk??

(Even though, I’m pretty sure this is what Mama did, now that I stop and think about it, because when I lived at home, our shower curtain was never dirty.   (Or any other space in our house!!   Mama was a real live Cleanie!!!)  (And I was allergic.  Not to her, just to being a Cleanie.)

So, will have to ponder on this some more…..  until the mildew  has turned into a living entity, and strangled me in the shower, probably….    When that happens, that’ll show me!     I shoulda listened to Nony and Mama!!

 

pantry purge

I decided since I was sick and tired of being sick, and tired, I would be getting rid of wheat, corn,  tomatoes, and gluten.  All of which I am allergic to.  Also all grains, which includes rice.   Almost any thing with a label.  And, much to my sorrow, sugar.  (I gave away 3(3!!) 2 liters of Coke.  I am serious now! ) This comes under Physical recovery.  If I don’t take care of my health, no one else will. Sooo….

I purged the pantry, BIG time.

Flour weevils. Did you know they live in dried pasta? Me either.

Those black dots. Ewwww.

20150414_221650Had to trash those donations.

Here are the bags of stuff, ready to go out into the world and bless others.

This isn’t all the stuff that left, just what I remembered to take pix of!

Cheese, which has annatto, and 6 frozen Banquet meals, and ALL the candy I had hidden in various places.

The neighbors were more than happy to take the stuff off my hands.  Matter of fact, I think they thought I was off my rocker!

Five boxes of saltine crackers???  Really?  Did I expect to be pregnant any time soon? That ship sailed and was scuttled many years ago, thankfully.

Also had to throw away the Miracle Whip, salad dressings, Asian sauce, etc….

Even the peanut butter had sugar in it!  What????

Going to follow Wheat Belly way of eating. Not a diet, a life style change.  If I think of it as a diet, I’ll look forward to the end, so I can eat “normal” again.  If I ever hope to feel better, not like a 92 year old who is about to die,  then it behooves me to start thinking of white sugar, white flour – white death.  My chiropractor BFF, Joyous, has been telling me that for about, oh, 3 decades?  Why, oh why am I so stubborn?  Don’t answer that!

Looks pretty organized right? Just putting like with like. Nothing crazy like alphabetizing!

20150414_133929Sharp eye! Yes, I still have some yakasoba noodles for when PP comes over.  And cup of soups, which I gave to Bubba.

And apparently my helper didn’t realize cans of corn kernels were actually corn. Cuz you know, the label wasnt big enuff print, and the picture was of White corn! Very very tricky!

But with the weevils running around, I guess I really am gonna have to clean. Sigh

At least then my cardboard, I mean rice cakes will be safe.  Oops, I forgot, no grains…. sigh

But seriously, what can I eat???  I’ve already asked for lettuce leaf donations on Facebook.  No response yet.  Maybe I need to start a GoFund Me for vegetables.
