    I filed a jar's worth of receipts today, I'm going to count it as (1) although it was more than that! Also finally planted the 3 packs of basil and one of red peppers in the cold frame (4). I'd plant some more today, but I got sunburned yesterday and I'm turning into a lobster!

    If things go as planned, DH and I will be planting the last of the veggies this evening. I'll be away for two weeks and I want him to remember that there's this garden out there he needs to tend to!

    Yesterday DH returned the old battery for its core charge (1) and planted the last of the veggies: 3 pkgs of basil, 1 of bell pepper, and 3 asst. squashes for 8 more "flung" things!

    I desperately want to fling things, but I don't have anything to fling! BIL moved in this weekend, and he brought a ton of stuff. I'm not counting it against us, because I'm not allowed to fling it! Maybe I'll go through the clothes drawers again...

    Well, you can fling behind his back. Any of his clothes you aren't particularly fond of?

    Don't worry, you've still got almost seven months of flinging ahead of you.

    Hehe. I don't think he'd appreciate that very much. And he's actually quite clean, not cluttery at all. And, he's moving out in August. So I really can't complain about him

    I do have some cooking magazines that are taking up space, and I could go through my bookshelves for books to take to 1/2 price books. We made a good chunk of change there last time, more than I was expecting! I've always been the kind of person who shops at used books stores and buys books because I WANT to read them...I hate giving away books, but some of mine are admittedly in bad shape, and I even have doubles of a few. I could easily fling a box of books!

    100 patterns gone! Plus that huge garbage bag of fake fur! I'm counting it as 10 pieces of fabric...it was a lot more...but I didn't count.

    Tossed four mags that I finally had the chance to go through. Found sixteen household items to add to my never-ending garage sale inventory, so those went out into the car. I am counting them as flings, because they will NOT be coming back into the house and, if I don't sell them in a couple of weeks, they will go to a thrift store.

    I just swept up and tossed 29 rolly-pollys out of my kitchen. Seriously, my house is a graveyard for rolly pollys these days. Every day I see 3-4 (at least) new ones, venturing across my kitchen floor, toward their inevitable death. Every couple of days I sweep them all up (the ones I don't step on, pick up and throw away) and toss them. We really need to check the weather stripping and get the house sprayed for bugs. Seeing a lot of spiders, too

    Anyway, I also flung a couple of bathroom items last night. I'm calling it 5 flings

    Five (5) things to the dump: 2 bowls, 2 doll stands, and a wine cooler. I adjusted my total earlier today when I realized I'd counted the basil and pepper plants twice!
