Torrid Tile Tale

There was a torrid love affair between a ceiling tile, Tina, and a door, Donny.

They were inexplicably drawn together.    Even though, Donny was too tall for her, and  every time he opened, he dug a deeper hole in her skin.     

“You hurt me”, Tina cries.     “It’s physical agony when you come to me, and emotional when you leave me.    But I want you to stay,  just because I love you so much.”

Donny apologizes.       Then says “Bye for now my love.   I must go.”          

“Come back!”  Tina begs.          “I will, but gotta go, now” soothes Donny.

“I need answers!” Tina cries.     “Do you love me or her?”      

Donny is torn between 2 lovers.

The jealous door frame, Francie, tells Tina, “Huh- you think he’s yours?  Well, he ALWAYS comes back to me.”

Tina was frantic, and lovesick.       Her big brothers, Tommy, Tony, Timmy, and Tammy (Don’t you dare make fun of his name!!), decided to take matters in their own hands.   They visited Donny, and had a heart-to-heart.       By the time they had cut him down to size, he agreed to leave Tina alone, and never touch her again.

Tina was furious at the “T”s.      But she knew in her heart, they only did the best thing for her.     No one should ever put up with abuse, under the guise of love.

She pitied Francie, who learned one day to her sorrow, that Donny was not all that.       But by the time she learned the truth, she had had every board in her broken, and was left with 3 little door jambs to support, all by herself.

Moral of the story; Make the doors keep their splinters to themselves!

Door Decor

Which door?   What decor?

This door, and this decor:

dark blue curtain, back door, humor

UGH to the LY

It’s my back door.

This curtain is dark navy blue.   BOO!!!   You KNOW I can’t let THAT stay here in MY house!!   If something isn’t purple, I have an allergic reaction!!   Get that girl a purple curtain!   STAT!!

 

So, here’s the door, mid change.    {You know normally I’m against nudity, but….. no vital areas are exposed.}  

naked back door

So immodest!!

 

Now, finally done.    It was such an exhausting process.     Removing the old curtain, from the rod, and sliding on the new one. Time for a nap.

So pretty in purple!!

And Bonus: finally there’s light at the end of the tunnel hall!

 

 

 

 

 

D(r)uggar Dream

The other day, as I was napping, {okay you young, single 20 somethings, I hear you sniggering about the old lady who naps.   Just wait until you’re older and wiser, you’ll start to appreciate their value too!!    If you’re a Mom with littles, I know you KNOW the value of naps, and can’t get one for love nor money!}

wants a nap

Bless her heart! I know how she feels!!

 

Anyhoo, as I napped, I dreamed I was with the Duggars (before the Josh thing).    We were all in 1 huge hotel room, with bunk beds.   Of course!    Where else are all those kids gonna sleep!     I was the nanny, and warned the younger kids not to open the door for any reason.   Of course, one of them just HAD to test the boundaries, and open it.

In came charging a crazy, (in a bad way, not MY GOOD way) woman, screaming and hollering, and carrying on.    Everyone else was frozen in shock.   I grabbed her arm, and marched her out the door.

Suddenly, the littles understood why they shouldn’t open the door!

Direct quote from Sweet Friend, as he stepped in the bedroom door: “WoooooW!!  You have really been working in here!”

My internal dialogue:  “He likes it, he really likes it!  I’m so glad he noticed, because I’m working so hard.”

SW: “You shut that drawer down there.”  helpfully points

Me: murderous thoughts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SW: knowing he got me but good belly laughs.

Me: har-dee har-dee har

You’re going down now!

Nony Need

I’ve talked about Nony, (Dana White) and my love

beating heart

LOVE!

for her several times.  I even wrote a post, (or 2, maybe 3?) about her and how she’s inspired and helped me.

So, after writing  Reminiscing, I told her.

Here is your comment:

I wrote about you on my blog today.

You are seriously why people can now come to my door pretty much any time, and be able to find a place to sit! And use the facilities without me screaming: NO! Don’t go in there!
Finding you saved my life, homemaking wise.
I can never thank you enough.

Ugly green, but it’s a place to sit!

(And it’s empty, available to actually sit in!!!!)
Here is her answer:
Oh Melinda! Thank you so much for sharing this. You have been through so much and come so far!

See why I love her??   She is a sweet, truly Christian woman, who gives herself to serve others.   We need more Nonys in this world!!

Let’s All Hit the Floor

Well, my plans changed rapidly Thursday night.  One minute I was in the shower, getting ready to go meet a girlfriend for a long awaited GNO, and the next, I was on the floor crying.

dorian 008

Yup, hit the floor, just that quick.  Yelling, crying, moaning, I was doing it all.

Hurting, and feeling like a dummy.  How many 53 yo women can get out of the shower all by themselves, without falling down?? Apparently, all of them but me.

Then, DH and DD1 were there, asking  me questions.

Purpleslob and husband

(Yes, my real husband. No, he wasn’t smiling during the event itself.)

Can you get up?  Ummm, that would be negatory.  Are you conscious?  I’m conscious of how stupid I am, so yeah.

Then, 911.  8 paramedics, EMTs, and firemen.  (No, not 8 of each, 8 altogether.)

emts helping someone

I know, quite a lovely butt shot.

 

All trying to figure out how to pick me up when my body was in the tiny bathroom, and my head was in the bedroom.  Once they moved the bed, they worked it out.  Back board, head brace, and me in all my glory.  Did I mention there were 8 men????  Thankfully, DD1 brought a sheet, so they covered me before taking me out the door.  Thank God for small favors!!

Made them stop so I could tell PP bye.  She was so worried, bless her heart.

Ambulance, about 90 speed bumps, it seemed.  ER. Finally a pain pill!!

Xrays, CT scans, another pain pill.

xrays of hands

Yes, they xrayed more than just my hands!

 

 

 

Nothing broken??  Are you sure, Doctor?? Cause I feel like I’m dying.

Gave me a script for pain pills, recommended ice, and Ibuprofen.  Put me in a wheelchair and sent me home.

Obviously, not me, since I don’t have black hair.   😉

 

When I got home, had to use my own walker from car to apartment.  Good thing I kept it.

Never did make it to GNO.

Next time I take a shower, maybe I need to be hooked up to a safety line.
