Throw out endometriosis!

  It has been a long time since I was able to post; I was getting a doctor to help me throw out endometriosis.  I had been sick and tired for a while, but I had no idea this disease could attack your bladder and bowels in addition to your reproductive organs.  If you have pain with your periods, especially when peeing or pooping during your periods, or pain with intercourse- get screened, get treated, don't wait for five years like I did.  It's a lot harder to throw out something that grows and…See More

"My number one excuse is: It's more important to have fun and do stuff with the kids than it is to have a clean house. However, in practice, it takes us an extra half hour to get out of the house because we can't find a matching pair of…"

"well, I gues the ultimate excuse to starting to clear the clutter is that my life won't be any better after I do, & then I won't be able to use the excuse that I have to clean the house etc. Lisa"

Kap-lah!

That was Klingon for "Success!"



I just dropped off the romance novels for the library book sale and a box of papers to recycle to boot! I filed two boxes of loose papers yesterday; finally going through all the stuff that was too important to throw out, but didn't have to be acted on right away.



Then, I did something astonishing... I finished the wallpaper boarder that I've been delaying for two years! It took 44 minutes, and I've spent years trying to clean out my office… Continue

Making Time

I decided it was silly to put off the trip to the basement any longer. I don't have to pick my cousin up until 3pm. So, I dug in, and boxed up this stuff for the Good Neighbor's Thrift Store:

15. Extreme Ants Sports Pack (Antfarm)

16. Princess of Ireland Barbie

17. Molly AG mini-doll (with dog-chewed right hand)

18. Elaine Doll (I've had her 17 years, it's time to let go)

19. Monkey with velcro feet and hands

20. Plastic crown (From college fairy godmother costume,… Continue

3. 21 individual unmated socks

4. 31 romance novels

5. 1 box of gardening catalogs

6. 1 box of nursing school notes

7. Pickle jar, with one pickle (2 years expired)

8. Cell phone (Not used in 7 years)

9.… Continue
