Bristly Brush

This is a brush.   

slob, humor, hair brush

Yep, it’s a brush, alrightey!

                                                                        A bristly brush.

slob, humor, bristly brush

Yup, it’s a bristly brush, fer sure.

Know how it feels to lay down on a bristly brush??

I do!!   I do it every night!

I somehow conveniently forgot this part about being bald- it starts to grow out!     Then, suddenly all the glory is gone!       {Uh, yeah, I whacked off my hair again, right before we moved into our newest place.     I was sweating overtime!!       I needed a summer haircut!}

This is my head on brush, a bristly brush.

slob, humor, head on brush

My head on brush. Yee-ouch!!

Photo credit to DD1.     Thanks honey, for helping!!

The hair on my head is soft, and fine, when it’s grown out.          When it’s 1/4 inch short, you could mistake it for the wire bristles of a grill brush!!

Pat my head, and it feels like thousands of millions, of tiny, tiny, finest gauge needles poking me in the scalp!!

And PPJr loves to do that!        Both to me, and DD1.             I know toddlers love to explore textures, so we enjoy watching her face, and listening to her giggles!!         The pain of the millions of pin pricks, not so much!  

Then, when she picks up the self-same brush, and tries to brush my hair, with the backside, my heart melts!!    

slob, humor, PPJr melts my heart

Does she ever!!

 She.is.so.adorable!!              When she tries to brush her own hair, and has the brush turned correctly, and it gets tangled, suddenly all smiles are off!!          Her pain is not bearable!!         I get that naughty hair brush outta there, ASAP!!

All smiles restored, time to go back to “brushing” my head, and the whole routine begins again……..

 

Poorly Pudding Pop

Today marks a full 7 days that PP has been sick.    😦

Poor PP, feeling poorly Pudding Pop. 

PPJr was sick the first 2 of those days, so you can imagine how full my hands were!!     I literally had my hands, and arms full of sick babies.      Oh, excuse me.     I’ve just been informed by PP that “I not a baby!”

So, for 2 days, we 3 sat in the recliner, gently rocking, sometimes snoozing.     When I started to doze off, I would be rudely jerked awake, by a scream, or by crying.            

Or both.      Any of which is preferable to an elbow in the eye!!

 

No visual, since neither baby would take a selfie, and I had no hands free!

 

So, I Googled “grandmother rocking 2 babies”

and this came up.

slob, humor, crazy Google result

What in the world does this have to do with grandma rocking 2 babies???

Sometimes I wonder if Google has a mental disorder!

This is the very best Google had to offer:

slob, humor, grandma, 2 babies

Well, it’s a grandma all right! AND 2 babies!! I guess 2 outta 3 is the best we’re gonna get.

Remember when I had so much trouble with Google, and the spaghetti sauce??

How else can I ask for a grandmother rocking 2 babies???      

Ask for 3 dark haired men, 2 with beards??  Cuz apparently, they are related.

 

And here it is Tue evening,  I’m typing this with 1 hand, cuz the other is full of cranky baby.  I know some of y’all out there are familiar with this writing style!     The other baby, who declared “I not sick!!” then promptly fell asleep, is laid out on my bed.

At least when DD1 gets finished cooking supper, we can eat in peace an quiet!!

And now I have a post for Wed,      Please forgive the lack of one today.       Nurses don’t have much time to write!

Back to the scullery today.      I told ya I wasn’t done in there yet!!

We’re gonna work on- guess it if you can!!        

Sippy cups!      

slob, humor, sippy cups

The test subjects for today.

And baby bottles:

slob, humor, baby bottles

Buh bye, baby bottles!

                                                                                                                          And baby spoons.

slob, humor, baby spoons

Waaay too many baby spoons!! PPJr can’t use the long handled ones to feed herself.

Here is the drawer they came from, 

slob, humor, plastic drawer

Plastics drawer.

well, some were in the sink, to be honest.  

Sippy cups that leak have been the bane of my existence for, oh, 3 and a half years now!!         We keep trying, and trying to find one that lives up to it’s advertising of not leaking!!

This one guaranteed “Doesn’t leak!”  

slob, humor, guaranteed no leak cup

Guaranteed not to leak! it said.

Yeah, right!!      First time PP used it, she dropped it square on it head.         Results?       A spectacular huge puddle!       (DD1 wanted PP to start using regular cups, instead of sippys, but I said No!!       So, PopPop got this one.        Really, why did I even bother insisting on a sippy???         And why oh why didn’t we save the receipt???)          So, that was a wash, as in, I had to wash the milk off the floor, from the epic fail.)

These lost their lids, somehow.      How does that happen????

slob, humor, lidless cups

Poor headless cups.

So, here are the ones headed for the scrap heap/recycling bin:

slob, humor, scrap heap for y'all!

Buh bye!!

PopPop came in, and was deeply offended that all the bottles, and so many sippys were headed out the door.       “Why?  What’s wrong with them?     Why aren’t you donating them??”

Well, the bottles lost their place in the house, because PPJr is a year old now, and should be weaned off bottles.    And we did it cold turkey, so….         And they aren’t worth donating, cuz you can buy bottles at the dollar store!     And I’m tired of dadgum leaky sippys that leave messes in their wake!      I notice you don’t have them over to your house, eating and drinking!      And the spoons are being donated, because PPJr would give herself an at-home tonsillectomy, with those long handles!

slob, humor, long handled spoons

See ya spoons!

Aaaaahhh, so much better now!       PopPop finally was persuaded to let go of the rejected ones.       His hand hovered over the blue bin so long, I thought he was frozen in space!      He is a very frugal man, and it hurts him deeply to throw away perfectly good stuff.           Except they weren’t perfectly good in use!!

So, since we only have a few left that really work, time to go shopping for more!!!    (Of the ones that truly don’t leak.)

slob, humor, sink o' sippys

Sippys in sink.

But, I best not say that out loud in PopPop’s presence!

Total House Time Before Today:  7 hr 43 min.

Plus Today’s Scullery Skippy: 15 min.       (Was that ALL??          Really??      Yep, really!)

Total House Time So Far: 7 hrs 58 min.

Authorized Artwork

In my house, there is authorized artwork, and unauthorized artwork. With a 3 yo, and a 1 yr, I’m sure you can imagine. But since you know me, you know you don’t have to.  I will show and tell!

Authorized:

Unauthorized:

 

More bed sheet graffiti.           (Why does my camera make stuff different colors??      It’s all the same beigish/pale yella sheet!!)   smh

Authorized:

       “My big hand”                                               Unnamed

UnAuthorized Artwork:

         PP does love her markers!      Apparently the cabinets were just too plain                            for her sensibilities!

 

And so on, and so on.

So  far, the only unauthorized artwork that PPJr has participated in is: eating the crayons!        Sorry, no pix of that, due to the no pix rule.       But she did make some marks on a paper!     And I immediately sent it to Grandmama as a love letter!      (while forgetting to document it for y’all.      My apologies!)

Hopefully soon PP will be broken of the unauthorized artwork habit, and PPJr won’t pick it up!       I sure hope so!

Seven Seconds Sisters’ Scene- today.

I’m still NOT done in the scullery, anyone surprised??, but after 8 days in there, I had to move on, to the bedrooms.      (Day Four, on Ashley’s totally fictional, for me, schedule.     I really don’t mean to make fun of Ashley.     I’m sure she is a wonderful person, and an organizational whiz.      It’s just that her schedule is totally, TOTALLY, unrealistic for a slob, purple or otherwise.    And for hoarders, or possible hoarders.)

So, here are the obligatory befores:

The Sisters’ Scene, (of the crime- messy and cluttered- guilty as charged, Your Honor!)

But!!    There is a small space of cleared carpet in that first pic!!     There is hope!!

Okay, so it was time to wade into this ocean of…..   of…..    of treasures, oh I mean junk!

Tell the truth now!!      Oh, okay then, some treasures, lots of donatable junk, oh I mean stuff.

DD1 and I worked in there 1 hr, and 15 min!!      We both were so proud of ourselves!!       We would have broken our own arms, patting ourselves on the back, but since there were 2 of us, we could do it to each other, thereby saving 2 huge ER bills!!         Yay for saving money, and time!!

We cleared off the dresser!!      We cleared out all the toys!!     (To be gone thru at a later time.    We were exhausted!!)     We cleared out the Christmas tree!!     Poor PP almost had a heart attack, watching it go by, out the door.     The only thing that calmed her down was assurances that it was ONLY going to the shed, to wait for next Christmas.      Heaven help us if someone tries to donate it!!

We ended up with lots of actual trash, broken stuff, and unusable clothes, torn or whatever.   No pix.    Are ya sad???    And tons of donate items!       (Oops! Forgot to photograph those.     No worries!!      Since I had to drive over here to SF’s, Vanronica is just outside.      Hold on, while I ran out and snap some pix!     Be right back!

 


Huff, puff….. I’m back!!     Hope that wasn’t too long to make u wait!

Oh no! I forgot to take pix of the end results!     Drats!!

Oh well, just imagine it looking so much more, empty!

                                                                                  In the first dresser drawer, were the cords.           

slob, humor, cords

The infamous cord drawer, from Scullery Scape.

  In the second, 1 shirt.  Yup!    1.    

slob, humor, solo shirt

1 single, solitary, solo shirt.

All the other drawers were empty!     And here I have been having to store all their clothes in the crib, all this time!              Yeah, right, HAVING TO!      Suuuurrre!!

Closet afters:

So nice, and empty!!     The little white pinafore I made for DD1, and PP wore it!      So, I’m excited to put it on PPJr, and get some pix!!      It’s still a little big tho, at the moment.

Here’s the donate piles, that I ran strolled outside to get.

 

Diapers, shoes, and clothes, for the New Life Center for Family Preservation.      When my 2 outgrow it, they get it!      If they can’t use it with their clients, then they can sell it in their NLC Boutique!  

2013 E Main St     Lakeland, FL   33801

Please go by, and buy!!

 

 

 

Vanronica is loaded, and ready to run!!

Total House Time before Today: 6 hr 28 min

Plus 1 hr and 15 min in Sisters’ Scene= 7 hr 43 min.

And I already realize I can’t just yell “Dun!” and run……

More’s the pity.    But I made the mess, and I’ve been lying in it, and I don’t like it anymore!!

Patrick’s Page

This was my St Patrick’s Day post from 2015.        Wearing O’ the Green.

So, this year I thought I’d research it a tiny bit more.         Here’s what I learned.

From the website: http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/2008/august/real-st-patrick.html

slob, humor, St Patrick

The “Real St. Patrick”

“Patrick isn’t really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn’t have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with.”

“Though he was not solely responsible for converting the island, Patrick was quite successful. He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”

 

But, he DID use the shamrock to explain the Trinity, right??

Well, according to this website, no.     It was all just legends.

http://catholichotdish.com/the-pastors-page/saint-patrick-the-shamrock-and-the-trinity/

“There are several popular legends about how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.”

Being as how I wasn’t there, I am not gonna argue the point.      I do think it’s a great illustration!

Alright, now on to my St Patrick’s Day stuff.           You already saw my mantel.

slob, humor, St Pat's Day shelf   From Seven Seconds Scullery Scape.

Now, here’s my porch door, outside.   

slob, humor, door shamrocks             slob, humor, door shamrocks  Porch door inside.

   

                                  Front door, outside.                       Front door, inside.                                              

And I also put one on Vanronica’s window, PP’s side.    And immediately she said “Wheah’s baby _____(PPJr)’s??”         Bless her heart, for being so sweet to her baby sister!!         (Now, I gotta go take one down off the mantel, and tape it to the baby’s side!!)                                   

  Here’s some funny stuff I saw at the store.

I want these tights!!     Of course, I’d have to wear them on my arms…..                                       And the white fuzzy things are leg warmers!!!     LOL

Ok, so that’s all the green I got going on today.

Second Seven Seconds Sequel

The series so far:

Seven Seconds

Second Seven Seconds

As you probably remember, I didn’t get finished with the living room in an hour.  Shocker.   Therefore, this sequel is needed.

The timer stands at 1 hour, 3 minutes.      And the tree is still up, and the recliner is still full of clothes.      sigh    

Yesterday, while the girls were here, I made sure I told PP that Christmas was over.     “Chwissmas obeh??”        Yes, Darling,  Christmas is over for now.        We will have Christmas again later, at the end of the year.           “Chwissmas obeh??”    she repeated, still in shock.       Yes, baby, it is.

So, I had her take the last 3 ornaments off the tree, and put them away in the tub.      I hoped that letting her do the final step, would help her transition from Christmas to “not Chwissmas.”

Time elapsed: 10 minutes.        She was a bit reluctant!

Then I had her help me recycle a stack of flattened boxes off the dining room table.     (Oops!       That’s not living room!        Well, it kinda is, so let it alone.)

Time elapsed: 30 minutes.        Why so long??        Well, we had to load the boxes into our arms.   7 minutes, because she wanted to hold ALL the boxes!    And she couldn’t, so after we she picked them up off the floor, we had to start over.      Then, I have to take the stairs slow, another 5 minutes.     Opening the recycling, and her putting the boxes in, 18 minutes.  Are you serious???         Yep!      She is very methodical about her work!      Each box had to go in separately.       Apparently they were singles, not mates.     (Box, not sox, Jen!)

Gwandma Wose came over to help me load the girls into Vanronica.      PP had to be sure and inform her that “Chwissmas  obeh, and Sanna gone.”

The timer is now up to 1 hour, 43 minutes.

And the call went out to my men.       I need help putting the tree away, guys!

Tonight, my trusty helper, SF answered the call!       He came, he conquered!        The Christmas tree is sadly packed away for another year.

slob, humor, no more tree

Another 15 minutes added on.      It would have been less, but he had to walk all the way across the WHOLE porch, into the workshop!       Poor guy!      His feet must have blisters on ’em now!

An hour, and 58.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot what Pop did!     He brought in the front door wreath, and entombed  buried  placed it in the storage tub.     1 1/2 mins.          I think we’ll just round up there!

 

Oh no!!!       We forgot to pack up the “angel” tree topper!!

slob, humor, "angel" tree topper       Please dear GOD let PP forget this by Dec!!!         Too bad, it’s trash now!!

Time: 2 hours on the dot!!      I knew it!      And we’re STILL not done!

Hopefully we will all survive the deprivation of Christmas, for the next 11 months!

The last tackle: the recliner full of clothes, or as I like to call it, “the clothes hamper in the living room.”       I want so bad! to just end the post now.      But, gotta get it dun dun.     (Anybody else hear Mama say “DO IT NOW!!”  ????)

slob, humor, clean laundry as decoration!

And, I hate ta tell ya this, but…          What?          You forgot something else.           What??           Look up.          slob, humor, "all the holidays" shelf

Oh, bother!   Well, that’s just gonna have to go with the dining room part!        Putting up the laundry is all I’m gonna be able to do this month  week   day  hour.

(Work, sweat, pant, huff, puff, stomp, hang, fold, put away…)

Only 11 minutes??     Are you kiddin me??         Wow, that’s amazing!         Just don’t let Shirley find out that you put the woven basket of hand-me-down clothes in the girls’ room to sort out later!              Shhhh!     Blabbermouth!

slob, humor, emptied!

There!!       Doesn’t that look so much better!        I culled out 3 items- 1 pr pants that were so tight, PP couldn’t even get her calves in- but they were 6x! Her size!       I know, I know!!   And a sweater that PPJr had to wear one day, as an emergency, but is too big!       And a 10-12 Christmas shirt.     They all went into the “Can these be worn later by a growing baby/girl?” part of my closet.

Final total for living room: 2 hours, 11 minutes.      (The clothes I stashed in their room will just have to go on their total!)

Time to reward myself!!       zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Second Seven Seconds

The second seven seconds is the family (living) room/dining room/entry.       Since my kitchen, living and dining rooms are all 1 big room, it might be hard to separate them properly like Ashley  Phipps does.     But, I’ll manage!   As long as I’m de-cluttering, and documenting it, I don’t think y’all are gonna quibble about which “room” I’m doing, right?? That’s what I thought.   Thank you!

 

So, I started in the living room on Jan. 11.      (I know I’m outta order, that’s just how I roll.) My Christmas tree still being up, helped me decide to start there.    

 

slob, humor, Chtristmas tree

Yeah, the tp in the foreground adds such a classy touch. XH brought in the storage tub, and I started emptying it out.       THEN, I even wiped it out!!Yoo hoo!!   There were all manner of empty boxes, and crumpled piles of tissue paper, some being actual tissues.      What??      I wasn’t about to run to the store for actual tissue paper, when I had tissues right there!      But maybe, just maybe, since I’m gonna have a neat, de-cluttered home now, I’ll do that from now on.          Not holding my breath.        That would probably be for the best.

I evaluated all the ornaments that I hadn’t used this year.     Most of them were glass, or ceramic.      Why didn’t I use them??     1 word-  1 toddler and 1 baby.     Okay, that was 5 words.      Whatever.

Anyway, I threw out all the scratched ones.     There went half!    

 I wrapped all the glass ones that weren’t sentimental, for donation.      Why??       Because PPJr is gonna turn into a toddler, and stay one for years!!

slob, humor, donation

The sentimental, glass and ceramic ones, like these that DD1 made as a child,

slob, humor, handmade ornaments

and this one that DD2 made,  

slob, humor, handmade ornaments

She made the present. I made the cross stitch 20 years ago with the others, but had finished this one!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wrapped up carefully and stored in the Tupperware box I already had for that purpose.

img_20170111_181745

Then I trashed the left over paper, recycled the boxes, and stripped the tree.     

slob, humor, ornaments(Oh, Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum, how evergreen thy branches.      Anybody else hear that music??)

All that hard work took me 30 minutes.     Making decisions is HARD!!

The actual tree was left standing for a helper to take down.    No, not PP, even tho I’m sure she’d manage to take it apart somehow , if I let her!    

Now, I only have 30 more minutes to de-clutter the rest of the living room.       We’ll see!

Oh, wait!    I almost forgot the 10 minutes I spent taking down the cards, and all PP’s decorations!        (And trashing them, much to my own satisfaction!       I was very proud of myself for not keeping them!        I did mark down who the cards were from, first.         Yikes! I only have 20 minutes left now!

See??      I knew it would take me more than an hour!!

Another 15 minutes on the clock, to deal with all this mess.

It only took me that long to deal with it, AND sweep!! Woo hoo!         Boy, am I getting good at this, or what?!

Hey, before you break your arm patting yourself on the back, you seem to be forgetting something.  What??       Oh yeah, I still have this left to deal with.                 And this:

slob, humor, pile o' clothes                                             slob, humor, clutter

Well, we’re already 55 minutes in.        But, okay, okay, more time on the clock.

But I don’t feel like doing those right now.      (Looks around to spy something else.     Anything else!)       Aha!     The china cabinet!

slob, humor, all clean    Nope!   Nothing there!     (I looked!)    YAY!!

Hmmmmthe chest of drawers, even tho I know there’s nothing in there I can get rid of.     But as Dana always says, Don’t assume!       Look anyway!       So I did.       Lo and behold!       All this can go!!

slob, humor, donation stuff                       slob, humor, why????

For pity’s sake!!      Why did I have a bloody candle????         I think you were gonna paint it purple?     And you only paid 5 cents on clearance.        Yeah, that would explain it, but obviously that ain’t happening!

Clearly I had NO idea what-n-all was in there!      WE have eleventy hundred videos, so I’m quite sure PP will never even notice the lack of these.     And I have no candle holders for the tapers, so……

Now I have a nice, fat bag to donate.     And that was only 8 minutes.      The total is up to 1 hour, and 3 minutes.     And I still have those 2 piles to go.     sigh    Another day.      I already did my few dishes this morning, now it’s nap time!!

Several more seven seconds to come!

Quazy Quilt Queue

Here it is the end of July, and still haven’t finished Kim’s Kwilt.   (When I first started this post.)            And the final deadline was May 20!        Majorly disappointed with myself.      But, I’ve been so busy with the girls, nannying, and full time taxi-ing for DD1, that I have felt like a chicken with its head cut off. Sorry Carmen!

Now she has a car again, {DD1, not Carmen!} and steady day care, so maybe I can git ‘er done before Winter!

Update:   I finished the infamous kwilt, on Saturday, Oct 22, 2016!!

slob, humor, back of quilt

I’m almost having a headache from that lattice pattern spinning!

The back, above.                                                                                     The front, below.

slob, humor, quilt finished!

It was already folded in half, cuz I wanted ya to see my face!

And all the angels sang: “Hallelujah!!”

And all the readers screamed “YES!  Finally we can quit hearing her whine about that pesky kwilt!!”

And SF mailed it that next Monday.

And she (DD2) liked it!  She really liked it!     She said, and I quote,      “Thanks, it’s awesome.”

Okay, now that is off my mind!!      I can go on to the rest of my quazy quilt queue.      And it’s a long one!!

  • Shirley’s.    My brother commissioned this one when they were dating.     Their first anniversary was back in August.     This is my progress so far.  

slob, humor, Shirley's quilt

  Getting there!!     So close!!

                                                                                 

  • PP’s Panda quilt.     DD1 commissioned this one in 2014.      Ahem   (Can’t find the pieces.     EEK!!)
  • The Campbell twins.      They’re only 5 months old, and I have all the squares cut out already, so hey, doing really well on this one!  

slob, humor, quilt squares

Oops!  No I don’t have all the squares cut out.  I have 3/4ths of the squares cut out!  

slob, humor, quilt fabric

This fabric has me flummoxed!!      I want each square to be 1 flower, (or “buttehfy”, as PP called them), but how do I do that without the squares going wonky??      I surely AM NOT gonna cut each one individually by hand!

So, I’ll just be as careful as I can…….

  • A bigger quilt for PPJr.      Her wonky quilt is WAY too little for her already, and she’s only 8 1/2 months old!!     (Haven’t even decided on the fabrics yet.    Yeah.)
  • Aulani’s.       She was born about 12 weeks ago, and I’ve already done this much.    

slob, humor, baby quilt

  Woo hoo!        On a roll here!           

 

Then, I wanna do one for ..      STOP!!          What?   Why??         Until you get all those done, I’m officially declaring a moratorium on saying you’ll make more!            You can’t do that!        I think I can, cuz I just did!

NO MORE QUILTS

Well then, yes ma’am!        I’ll get back with ya on my next recipients, soon as I’m done with these.         So, mid 2027, would you say??          That’s kinda mean.         Is it mean if it’s true??      Well, it has been true so far…..

Love this idea!!        But I had already purchased, and had wrapped almost all my gifts, by the time I read it.      There’s always next year!

I did kinda combine #2, & #3, without even knowing about this, tho!       I bought several sets of clothes for the girls, including their Christmas dresses.      Well, in PPJr’s case, a “dress” is not exactly accurate.     It’s a top, and leggings.      Perhaps, I should say “outfits” instead.      And of course, forgot to take pix!       Maybe I can sneak one, without showing their faces???        We’ll see!

And some Pj’s too.      I love to see littles in cute pj’s!!       I just wish I had found some matching ones!!     

I did find matching shirts, but forgot to take pix.      Maybe I can grab one of those too tomorrow.      (I’m writing this late Christmas Eve.)

#1, the toys I bought- I’m sure they’ll want them when they see them!!     They’re too little to turn loose with a catalog!       Well, I’m sure PP would have had a fine time marking one up!      But Mommy, and I both are trying to teach her not to be materialistic, so that would kinda defeat that goal.

#4- Wow! I can NOT believe I didn’t buy them any books!     (Probably because Beall’s doesn’t carry them!     It’s Florida’s store, but apparently we don’t need to read.)     Next year fer SURE!      Wonder if PP would notice if I just wrapped a few that she hasn’t read in a while????

I need to get some sleep, so I’ll be bright eyed, and bushy tailed for church tomorrow!!

Then “PWESENTS!!!   YAY!!
