Dishes, Dishes, Dreaded Ding Dong Dishes

Man, you think I’d be done writing about dishes!  Ah so, ah no!

This past weekend, I had PP.   I love having her so much!

But: she wears me out!  I tend to her, and (maybe) get a bath too, but that’s it!  No cleaning, dishes or laundry on her watch! lol

So, when she left Sunday night, and there was a full sink of dishes, did I jump in there like a good lil housekeeper, and do ’em all up?

Yeah, right!  If you’ve been here very long, you know the answer is a resounding NO!

Anyway, there sat the pitiful, but still pretty!, dang dirty dishes.

BUT!  to rejuvenate, first I had to sleep 12 hours.  Yes, I sleep 12 hours, and your point?

When I came into the kitchen to find food,  there they were, staring at me, mocking me:  “Purple Slob in Recovery, huh?  Recover this!”

Ooooohhh, I despised them at that moment.

So, I did what any good slob would do, I ignored them, and ate my breakfast.  (A non-dish-requiring breakfast of fresh blueberries, outta the container, and a cheese stick.)

Then, s l o w l y, I dragged myself back into the kitchen, and confronted them.

“You’re going down, today, Sassy Pants!”

So I organized them, dumped the contents, re-arranged them, alphabetized them…..

And after starting to think I might actually have to DO them, I caught myself.  Wait!  I’m a slogger!! (slob-blogger for you new followers.)  I HAVE to take pix for the blog!!

So, I stretched that out as long as I could….

Here they are stacked nicely

Here they are stacked nicely, sorta….

Okay, fine!  I’ll do the dishes!  But only so they can’t mock me anymore!

Strawberry Sickness

part 1, Strawberry City, part two, Man Giant, part three, Strawberry Banquet, part four, Strawberry Love, part five, Strawberry Slush

she has The Tired Disease.

So. Very. Tired.

So. Very. Tired.

That’s the reason she can’t do anything but lay on the couch.  So, the Dr. starts Strawberry Girl on Tired medicine.

She begins to feel better.  Finally!   She takes the girls on adventures,

and makes friends.  She learns how to do some many new things, like quilting, making Tundraberry Jam, and weaving baskets.  Strawberry Girl even starts working part time, to fund her Coca Cola habit.

Man Giant was so happy, and relieved that Strawberry Girl seems to be recovering.

But, the messes and clutter begin creeping back in again.  Strawberry Girl feels helpless, and hopeless.

She takes dancing lessons

to make herself feel better.    But that plan backfired.  After dance lessons, some of her new friends went to the bar, to dance.  While they were there, it was inevitable that they began drinking.  Strawberry Girl didn’t drink.  But, everyone offered to buy her a drink.

So, she decided to try a Fuzzy Navel.

Big mistake.

1 drink lead to 2, 2 lead to 5, and 5 lead to constant drinking every weekend, after dance class.

Strawberry Girl became ……
