This is just a quick post to show you some of what I’ve been up to this past week-end. No creating for me, I’m afraid. Just cleaning up some of my messes.
I got a call from Mom a couple weeks back and she was wondering if I was ever going to come back and take care of some stuff I had
stashed hidden over at her house a long time ago. (ahem, that would be 2 full years ago)
I had offloaded some curb finds to the side of her house so that I could go back and get more (her house being close to the neighborhood I was curb shopping) Well, bad daughter that I am, I never got back to pick up my mess. Mom has been awfully patient about this,
offering threatening to throw it in a dumpster only a few times. Her lawn service guy was getting pretty tired of trimming around the junk pile too.
It got a little complicated as I had absolutely no room at home for anything more…and I sure didn’t want Mike to know I had yet another stash of junk somewhere…..such is the secret life of a curbshopaholic I’m afraid.
Well, this time I PROMISED I would get it cleared out before big trash day, which was Monday. Starting in the spring her city picks up big items and construction debris once a month. (something to take note of if you have this in your area, makes for some great curb shopping!)
(2 years outdoors makes for a perfectly weathered door, I’m sooo excited about this!)
So I spent some time Saturday morning cleaning up, and was rewarded with some bonus pallets too! Yayyyyyyy! Mom had these leftover from a new tub that was installed last fall.
I feel like a good daughter again. (But not such a good wife, as I’m taking this stuff home to hide somewhere)
Thanks for putting up with me Mom! (and for keeping my secret from Mike) Shhhhhhh……….
Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere!
