    If I could, I'd count the weeds I pulled today too! But they aren't in the house, so I guess they don't count. I was just in a flinging mood today.

    Madhen, I'm so sorry about your stroke of bad luck this week!

    I am going to have to try REALLY hard to maintain flinging. Maybe its just been a crazy week (and adjusting to a new schedule is always hard), but I haven't done ANYthing that I usually do this week. I'll have to be more disciplined.

    I did fling about 4 weeks worth of newspaper today, to the recycling. We only get Sunday and Wednesday, so I'll count it as 8.

    OMG madhen i think there is a fridge virus going around my fridge has decided to take a summer vacation and stop working, its getting a litte cold so i took everything we could salvage put it 8in a cooler and put the cooler in the fridge

    fortunately i hadnt been stocking up so my total meat loss was only 2 LBs ground, 2 chicken patties and a pack of sausage, i also tossed the eggs and mayo to be safe. most of the rest is fresh (picked on saturday) veggies so they are ok and we are just eating them in a big ol salad

    geckoace: hope you get your fridge fixed or replaced soon...and affordably. You were blessed not to have a lot of expensive meat go bad. Good thing you caught it when you did!

    Geckoace - sorry about your fridge! That is no fun.

    I was at home this past weekend, and my mom gave me 5 boxes full of STUFF I collected during middle/high school. Today I went through one of them. I tossed a total of 261 items!!! Tons of bday cards, old pictures, lots of paper. If it was a unique item, I counted it, no matter how small. If it was a stack of paper or similar items, I counted about 20-sheets as one item. Several notebooks full of silly notes and drawings, notes from my DH (high school sweetheart), etc etc etc. It was remarkable. And to think, that was only one box! I've got four more to go!

    I know it's not much but today I threw away this weeks food circulars (can't recycle they won't take), gave my MIL a ceramic holder to hold her cell phone while it charges, recycled some plastic, and got rid of a bunch of junk mail. So I flung 4 things.

    I flung an entire garbage bag of useless items today. Must have been 25-30 things. Yay! Youngest son is growing up and we were able to get rid a lot of those toys that he just couldn't let go of 6 months ago. Feels good to declutter and simplify.

    Started working on computer cabinet tonight and I was able to discard 2 cds, donate 9 educational games for the computer, and tonight I have a stack of papers from the cabinet 2' high, I expect that I'll have 3/4's of that in the trash before the night is out. YAY! Making headway!!!

    And I found the disc to install my son's printer to his school computer. I thought it was lost forever.

    Oh and son cleaned out cubby over his closet and discarded a 1/2 a garbage bag of useless stuff!
