Time to De-clutter — and ignore the screaming heart strings…


Making Confetti…

The current working pile and the bag o confetti

I’m 52 years old.  And we live in a paper society.  I’ll pause while you do the math…  dum de dumm..

Did I mention that I hate filing? dum de dum….  [finger twiddling]

Ok… got the picture?

Ah yes, boxes and boxes of unsorted papers that represent the “history of my life”

Every time I’ve ever begun to tackle this now Herculean task of going through it, sorting, filing, and THROWING AWAY and SHREDDING IT!!!! two awful words pop into my head…

Yeah, but….  followed by their evil twins  “What if…”

Yeah, but

… this is part of my life…

… this proved that I existed…

… OMG I had forgotten all about this…

and

What if…

… I need this someday…

… I become so rich and famous that one day a big library will want all my papers because they will provide a window into my life that some graduate student one day will Read the rest of this entry

I’m having an Online Garage Sale


My Inner Domestic Diva has gone Crazy!

My Inner Domestic Diva - Ready for Action!She has declared war on the legions of dust bunnies inhabiting my living space and has threatened an INTERVENTION!

She said that if I didn’t help her de-clutter the place and get rid of some of the junk that has been taking up space that she was going to call the booking agent for that reality TV show about hoarders and turn my name in!

Since I can’t abide reality TV shows, and she was about to throw her tiara at me…  I gave in.

You can see the full gamet of what I’m selling over at Pinterest where I’ve created a board called “My Online Garage Sale”  Clever title isn’t it?  🙂

Once there you can click on the photo and that will take you to either Amazon or to eBay where you can then either bid or buy the item of your choice.

Some fun stuff… …it’s a Garage Sale after all.  LOL

What are you waiting for… hop on over and go rummaging!

All kidding aside… …I need the cash in a bad way.

cardboard_blankI really do need to clean out the storage closet.  By selling a bunch of stuff that I haven’t even looked at in years, I’ll be able to move what remains to a smaller unit and save some bucks on the rent.

However, I’m also doing this bit of “fall cleaning” because I really do need the cash.  My truck insurance is due on the 16th.  Urk and I’m $69 short.  And after that there is…

well, I think you get the idea.

 

Stuff Tony NeedsIf you don’t feel like shopping for yourself, you can always shop for me!

I’ve created a “wish list” of things I need but don’t have the money for right now over on Amazon.

Anything on the list (some stuff is under $5) will be shipped to me as a gift.

And I will be EVER so grateful!

See ya on the dance…  Uhmm… See ya at the Garage Sale!

I did it again! Almost too pooped to type but…


I friggin’ DID IT!  — AGAIN!

exhausted-catYou may recall that yesterday I was all a twitter about having done 45 minutes of exercise — also known as – domestic duties.

Today, mere moments ago,  I DID IT AGAIN!

On my “to do” list (we will NOT discuss just how long it’s been there) is to “sort, shred, and file” as appropriate, years of accumulated paper, old bills, photos from dance events, score sheets from dance events, certificates from dance events, dvds and videos from dance events, more bills, more statements, more…

well you get the idea.

So… facing the inevitable and not finding ANYTHING else to distract me, I proverbially girded my loins (anyone know how to gird? — what is “girding” anyway?) but I digress…

I was ready.  the moment had come to START… just START, finishing will be weeks away, but to START that particular project.

So, I put on a new podcast from my favorite DJ “Mr Andi Mik” and got to work…

I just reached a stopping point, and turned to pause the mix and was SHOCKED!

FABER-gasted!

Flum-FLUXED!

AGOG!

AGHAST (well I wasn’t really Aghast, but since agog and aghast have such a nice alliteration I thought I’d throw that one in just for fun)

Eeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyy Way….

I was well and truly AMAZED-ed.

See I ur a colludge grad-u-ut!  I knows some BIG wurds.

So… the timer on the pod cast read 3 minutes left, 58 minutes played. 

FIFTY-EIGHT FRIGGIN MINUTES of…
