- An update about the whole eye surgery thing
- My new BFF
- The basement saga continues
- I got mugged in my truck this past weekend
- An ex-wife with balls whose size is matched only by those of a Blue Whale (1)
- A general fluff piece with pics that I've taken...no big deal but something I've been meaning to do
So why am I not getting any of them put down for the posterity of the ages?
Because my house is full of CRAP! (2)
See my lovely mom....
|Yes folks....that really is mom and I...circa 1996|
(aka - the era when my hair was permed and could be trained to do SOMETHING to look respectable)
I have plastic tubs and cardboard boxes coming out my bloomin' ears (3). To top it off...one of my all time favorite
However, since my house hasn't looked as good as it's usual pig sty condition since the basement got tore up and mom passed, watching Hoarders makes me want to cry when I look at the piles of stuff crawling and clinging to every available surface.
However, while my eyeballs are working remarkably well in the grand scheme of things, the whole tearing up process....still not quite up to par...so, instead of indulging myself in a self absorbed fit of temper tantrums at the clutter, the mess, the piles of stuff that inevitably evolve into getting referred to as "shit" the longer it sits around and out of it's place, I've been trying diligently to plow through boxes and tubs. Problem is, while I am making progress, it really doesn't LOOK like I'm making progress. (4) While there is stuff that I either don't want anymore, or can't keep because I don't have room for it, that stuff is still relegated to boxes so that they can be sold on Ebay (5). If I can't or don't want to keep something, I'm sure that there is someone out there that would be happy to take it off my hands and enjoy it. (6)
I would say..."Calgon, take me away"....but I'm sure someone out in the wild blue yonder would only hear the "take me away" part and I'd end up fitted with a snazzy, yet form fitting new jacket and my very own bouncy castle. *sigh*
1 - The largest mammal on earth doncha know? Still trying to work out if the ex-wife could actually be classified as a mammal though.
2 - I say that in the most loving and yet exhausted manner ever uttered by a daughter and granddaughter.
3 - Which is quite painful I assure you!
4 - Don't you just HATE it when that happens??
5 - Still not sure when I'll find time to do THAT! Of course, should Porky Pig go sailing past my window sporting a fancy, shiny, new pair of wings I should likely take it as a sign!
6 - Thus, possibly insuring that the show Hoarders stays on TV...who knows!
Climbing Mount Crap To Resume.....whenever I get around to it! =)
