    Finished sorting 2 card tables worth of food and have about 50 more things to dump. 5 garbage cans out to the trash again. Poor guys must despise us.
    DH is cleaning his office again too. Not sure what that means but I won't criticize if items are leaving. When he gets back we will research new phones for the kids b-day's in Oct. and fling the old 3. (yeah,they are stone age).

    Flung two old composters (via Freecycle). I gave up on the "gentleman farmer" approach and am just flinging scraps out to the chickens. Just call me a redneck.

    I should take some pics of my neighbor's property. He'd give your neighbors a run for their money.

    Policed the dog run again. Found two big bones, a plastic yogurt container, and something that used to be a sheet. It is amazing what comes up out of the strata out there!!

    Hello, Emptied and tossed all the food mentioned yesterday. Polished the pantry cabinets and washed the windows of the back door.
    Flung the window blind but not w/o injury. Dropped 2 large pineapple juice cans on my pointer finger. Later I pulled the blind and it desintigrated throwing dust and plastic into my eye. Wrecked my shirt w/ spoiled food and clorox clean-up. Pretty sure I have dead flour beetles in my hair. Going out.
    I need a break so I will wander to Big Lot for another window blind. There all of $6. I'll peek at there grocery section too.

    Need to:
    -rescrub floor
    -Dust webs
    -finish labeling drawers
    -Go thru hygiene basket and sort
    -sort last table of food.

    It's a crappy day here. All gloomy raining and windy. Yuck. Maybe a movie slurge??

    Heh, heh, heh! We flung a 4x8' UHaul trailer full of our kids stuff! We loaded it all in the trailer to go to them...along with a couple of bookcases DH made over 25 years ago. I have no idea what to count that as! It's 1500 pounds of stuff. Over 40 boxes plus miscellaneous. I think I'll just say I reached my 2009 items for 2009!

    Congrats Peanut!

    Just went through some winter clothes and tossed 22 items we never wear! They're in a trash bag ready to head to the goodwill tomorrow night. Yeah!

    WooHoo Were all flinging fools. Got another 1/2 garbage bag to add to todays total. The clasp broke off our bannister and DD fixed it. ( one little screw tossed). She also installed my new blind. Old hardware tossed. Seeing her feeling powerful -lack of confidence=tossed. Should finish the last bits of the pantry purge and reorg. tomorrow.

    Went through my coupon/flier stash this am and caught up, finally. I have a full trashcan of discarded coupons, fliers, catalog sheets, etc. I'm counting it as 1.

    Flung-dust,spiders,cobwebs and grunge. I scrubbed the floor by hand and vaccumned the dustwebs. And I AM DONE w/ the pantry. I would put a red ribbon on it and have a cutting ceremony if DH were in town. What a transformation. Just in time to do the downstairs freezers. Blah!!
