Story Time 7/21/20

I wrote this on FB last week.  Only reason I didn’t post it here is that I’m almost out of photo space.  Very silly but oh well.  I wrote this …

In the spirit of “if I to have to live here, I need to like it”. I dumped the mister’s junk drawer. I have no idea what half this shit is. LOL. In case anyone was wondering, I wasn’t really “living” here until I started working from home. Now that I am in self imposed stay at home because I can, I’m starting to spruce up the place. When I used to leave my house for work and other fun activities ya know basically living my life, I never noticed any of this shit. Step one organize 😂

The first picture was a jumble of odds and ends. Important stuff ……..especially the 19 allen wrenches that were part of the assembly kits for various products purchased over the years………..you never know when you’re gonna need to used one of them. Two or three tape measures. A ruler.  A level.  Phillips head and flat head screw drivers.  Not the good stuff that is out in his barn.  The mini in-home versions.

The second picture was the finished organized drawer.

Whew!  Worn out but not to be out done, the next day we tackled Lulu’s closet.  She moved back home.  Earlier than expected.  Considering the times, she is likely to be here for a while.  That interview that never happened 3/27/20 has her spinning about never getting a job.  B very patiently tells her “it’ll happen, when it happens”.  Anyway, we needed to make space and spruce up the place since we are all always here on top of each other.   Except B.  He masks up and goes out on the job.

Day two we attacked her closet.  And in it, I found a treasure trove.  Those gems and more will be the basis for my stories.  Truth is stranger than fiction and what I write will  be embellished by my recollection.  A spin or a yarn if you will.  But NOT a lie … These tales will be my perception of events past.  And if one knows anything about perception, might as well be the god’s honest truth.

Super excited to stroll down memory lane.

As always, more to come.

  1. Sounds like a treasure hunt! As for the pictures, I just got rid of a bunch of mine, you may recall, and now I have double my space here on WP. You may have some duplicates floating around that you can delete?

    1. Yes I do but when I delete if I linked it prior that post shows some weird image. In some cases I even have triples. Just not sure which ones to remove and which to keep.

      1. When you go to your media file, choose “unattached” and I’m pretty sure you could delete those without causing trouble. At least I haven’t seen a problem yet – LOL.

  2. Reminds me of after Mom died and Mary and one of my sisters-in-law went about cleaning out her closets (one of those things she was always telling us she was doing). She had about 15 pair of black pumps and half a dozen broken curling irons in there, among other things. Now, she had two closets in her bedroom and my stepfather kept all his clothes in the hall closet because there was no room for them. And as I recall, she had taken over the closets in my old room and they were also stuffed to the gills…

    1. Ha! I can just picture those burgeoning closets. It’s universal. Because you never know when you might need some of those things. Going through everything was fun until it wasn’t. I’m really trying not to hold onto most of this “stuff”.
