Under Cover, Under Counter

This looks bad, I know.

This is another one of those cases where you just need to be grateful we don’t have smell-o-vision.

Yeah, it kinda… um, how can I put this delicately… stinks.  Like mildew.

Now, I wasn’t aware that the sink leaked.  Until the day when I needed a cleaning wipe.  Yeah, remember that 1 day when I actually cleaned the sink???

I reached under there, and that whole towel was wet.  Nasty surprise!  But did I do anything about it?  Like remove it?  Throw it away?? C’mon, you know me better than that by now!!  (For those of you who are new, I’m lazy, and a slob– SHOCKER- right?  And a big time procrastinator.  That’s all, back to your regularly scheduled post.)

Sadly, that wet towel is still there, stinking, to this day. sniff, sniff  (It’s my allergies, I’m not crying over spilled milk, or whatever the heck that liquid is.  Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.)

Well, I found out it was only water, (YAY) and not from the sink (double yay!).  Did you see the plastic jugs to the left of the pipe?  Turns out there were 3 of ’em full of water, for our emergency stash.  Until suddenly, no water at all!  Not sure what happened, but there’s holes in them now.  At least now I won’t be afraid to take up the towel, YAY!  Maybe I’ll even do it now!  {Here’s hoping!}

You’ll be happy to know, the under counter was cleaned by the time I moved out, on June 30, 2015.  Yay, me!  (Or whomever cleaned it, who may or may not have been me.  Hint: It wasn’t me.)

(I’m so frustrated with myself right now.  I took a picture of the cleaned space.  But now I can’t find it.  (Typical slob prob.  Maybe I need to… organize (GASP!) the way I do my pix?)

Pouty protest

I don’t wanna be doing this.  I’m only doing it cuz someone tried so hard to shame me about it.

(Hello, person formerly known as “Sweet friend”, I’m talking about you.)

(See??  I told you if I had notice I’d have put on a purple shirt, and my Aunt Jemima bandanna!  This time, I had notice!)  And lookey there, I’m cleaning up too!   Will wonders never cease?

Not anything drastic, just folding some laundry, the gargantuan mountain of Living room loveseat laundry.

20150324_13220320150324_132213The loveseat couldn’t hold it all, so some spilled into the wingback chair…  and the floor… Oopsie

I can do that from a seated position, so no real excuse for NOT doing it, just my arms hurt, I’m tired, I’m hungry, I feel like I’m gonna faint… any of those work for ya?  No?  Drats, I was hoping to get out of this for a longer time.    Oh yeah! I forgot, I have a headache!  No?  Still not working?   My stomach hurts???   Check my head, I think I have a fever!

willie

Oh, look!  Willie stopped by to help!  You’re welcome, Jan C.!

Fine!  I’ll fold the stinkin’ laundry.

Yes, Shirley, it's really empty!

Yes, Shirley, it’s really empty!

There- happy now?

Next time, I’ll ask Mama, she’ll let me get by with it!

soap or shampoo

Why do I have so many products in my shower when I only use 1?

There's a tube inside.

There’s a tube inside.

Smells so good.

Smells so good.

Product, product everywhere

Product, product everywhere

Annnnd, 1 more

Annnnd, 1 more

Guess I could de-clutter some. Reckon?

I gave the yogurt body wash to Shirley.  She took it, even though I warned her, it felt slimy, all over my body!

What do I mean I only use 1 product? Well shampoo is for hair, right? And we have hair all over our bodies, right? So all I use is shampoo.

Partly cuz I can’t read the bottles, without my glasses.  Partly cuz I’m too lazy to do 2 steps. I only have 2 inches of hair, so why fuss?

And it’s cheaper too! Got my shampoo on sale with coupons for cheap cheap.

Now, the good part:

Products- poof!

Products- poof!

No more rack, and stuff here!

No more rack, and stuff here!

Oops, I forgot to take a before of that part.  Oh well, y’all are used to that by now, right? 😉  (And I’ve donated the rack already, so no way to fake the shot!)

I kept the Cherry Blossom shampoo.

But:

That one is gone!  Oops!  Didn’t realize how nasty that corner was.  Tra la, I’ll think about that some other day.

Aaahhhhh! That looks better.  Ummm, as in de-cluttered better, not cleaned better!

I can’t get rid of the tube in PP’s cups, because it floats.  And she loves to play with it.

Thus endeth my soap or shampoo saga.

Update on Kitchen Clutter

It’s been _8_ days now, and my counters are still clean!  ( Relatively)

20150418_135025Here is the pic from Kitchen Clutter.

Here is from May 2, before I started cooking.

20150502_154836Yes, it’s the exact same pan! But I did wash it, because I needed it to cook the slaw!

May 2:

20150502_154843Still clean!  (relatively, except for the receipt.  The oil and vinegar are in their new homes.  Yes, I’m too lazy to move 2 more steps to the right, to the pantry.)

20150414_221823From Kitchen Clutter:

From May 2:

20150502_154828I promise it’s a completely different picture!  I’ve been keeping it clean!  Yay, me!

Now I have to go take a picture of that side.  It completely slipped my mind!!  (In my defense, it was behind me when I was taking the other pix.. My mommy eyes in the back of my head must be atrophied since I’m over a half century old now!)

potholder 004

Not so bad, really! 2 ice cube trays, a magnet, and a dish towel.  For a slob, that’s nothing!

I really am proud of myself.  Keeping it nice this long!  Now…. check back in another month– that’ll be the test!

Tubeless

Guess what I just saw an ad for?  Tubeless tp!!!!!!

What were they thinking??   What will they think of next???414px-Toilet_paper_roll.svg

How will we know when to change the roll, if there’s no tube to sit there empty for days???

How will school children everywhere make their Christmas crafts now???

What now? Tubeless tube tops??

woman in tube top and jeans

Can you imagine her in any less?? Well, not going there!

 

The women who wear them are barely covered now!!  I do not want to see the re-invention of it without the tube!!

Think about it, what if they make tubeless inner tubes???

How will people get to the other end of the river???

tubing on the river

Yay! Tubing on the river!

 

Or the bottom of the mountain, without skis??

There will be a world wide shortage of inner tubes.   All the river floaters, and snow floaters will panic, and begin trying to slide  or float on cardboard.  Many, many people will die!!

All the inner tube rental places will go out of business.  This will cause the economy to crash, and everyone who is still alive will starve to death.

This is serious people!!  The implications are global destruction.  Please write or call your Congressman,person today!   Demand they pass a law to stop companies from making this evil personified tubeless toilet paper.   If you delay, you will be the cause of the whole world’s demise.  Shame on you, and all because you are too lazy to change the roll when it’s empty.
