Cleaning Up The Muck myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

Am really feeling energized. Nothing like rolling up your sleeves and just diving in feet first, of course. When it comes to cleaning, someone else's mess, it's just so funny to me that it seems so much worse than when you clean your own mess! I know it is all in my head but I felt like we were just wallowing in muck, cause it was their muck, and my mind conjures up all these icky images!

Threw away about seven bags of pure trash over at the abandoned Frog Family's rental property. They had disconnected the utilities and had thrown raw meat from the freezer into a waste can and left it there so, thankfully we had disposed of stuff like that earlier. Wouldn't that have made the place smell lovely, I think not...eeewwww!


This time, it was boxed food, cooking supplies, spices, pots, pans, trash and more trash... Anything that was big, or looked valuable, we had placed out on the back enclosed patio, and in a effort to be nice, I told Head She Frog, to please come get the rest of her stuff. Even though the Frog Family did me so wrong, my heart told me this is a family that had so little and definitely was in financial trouble. Actually, they are in a lot more than just financial trouble but, who am I, they will meet their maker one day, and may God be ever so merciful on their souls.

So, here it is, two weeks later, and they didn't
make a single effort to come get anything else. Hopefully, I will be able to donate many of the items, as there are several good organizations I give to, Purple Heart, League of Mercy, or Mercy Ministries.

Came home and cleaned my house after making tons of progress at the rental property. Made a scrumptious meal of Italian sausage with sauteed veggies, and yummy potatoes au'grauten, and a delightful tropical fruit cup. Not good and not healthy for us but, oh well,...lol! We all indulge once in a while. hehe!

Normally, we get to watch our little grand baby Ben on Wednesdays, but our son Kevin phoned and said they all three had colds so, we all agreed to pass this week. It was kind of nice in that it freed up my evening, unexpectedly. (rubbing my hands together, more time to blog) hehe!


So, it's just the two of us, not knowing what to do with all our extra time, but can't wait til we can have fun spoiling our little grand baby the next time he gets to come and we hope you enjoy spoiling your's, as well!

Cartoon reads as follows: #1) So to become Nelson's favorite grandparent, all I have to do is stop disciplining him / No, of course not. #2) You also need to spend a lot of money on him. I recommend line of credit at toys * Us and Dizzy World. #3) But won't over indulging him like that turn him into a little monster? #4) Maybe, but that's his parents problem. Don't make it yours.


* note of interest: I love watching the Hippos swim under water at Busch Gardens! They are so huge...and yet so graceful...it is amazing! Did you know they can stay under water for a full six minutes before they come up for air???

Yuck, like you said, nothing worse than cleaning someone elses mess, especially when you don't know what was done to it! Your dinner did sound delicious, though:-) Hope your lille grandbaby will get over his cold real soon!! Hugs xox

I love the Pickles cartoon strip. We laugh so much about it because it could be my in-laws. The characters even look like them.

Oronzo used to have a rental property (duplexes) and the state the some of his tenants would leave those in when they left was quite disguisting! Ugh! Sorry you're having to clean out the muck yet again.

I loved the cartoon you posted. When I clicked on it, it opened up big and clear and I had no problems reading it. I'm going to send it to my parents and Oronzo's parents. They'll get a kick out of it.

Oh, thanks for being willing to participate in my Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange on 10/2. I'll email you the code later today, okay?

You have such a sweet spirit!! You sure do bless me. I just can't get over those Frogs, but it seems to me people like that always manage somehow. You have certainly done your best for them.
Your dinner sounds sooo good. What a good wife you are. After all that work I would have opted for dinner out.
I'm glad you're making progress. Before you know it you will have that place looking sweet and clean again.

It's still hard for me to understand how people can live that way. I know some people do but it's so sad, isn't it? And yes, cleaning other people's muck is a whole lot different than cleaning your own place. Blech.

Maybe hippos can stay underwater that long because they have big lungs? Very interesting.

I halfway suspect Cameron has a cold coming on. I hope not. Poor little thing is cutting back teeth so that might be it - I know the symptoms are the same. Krissy's so excited about him starting daycare two days a week next week and I know they won't let him attend if he's sick. So I have my fingers crossed.

Sounds like you're getting it all cleaned up and ready for some better tenants!

Yuck! I can't understand people like that. I'm glad you're getting a good handle on it.

Thanks for stopping by today. Yes, Teen Challenge literally changed our lives. We have had a rough few years! We're keeping on praying, because Satan does not want him to succeed.

Hi there. I'm dropping in again to tell you, yes, you'd love Francine Rivers. Anything she's written. But Redeeming Love and The Mark of the Lion trilogy are the ones I bought to start with. I'm a huge fan after finishing one book. She's amazing. Inpirational and uplifting.

Sorry. I'm monopolizing your comments. But your son's comment cracked me completely up. You think you're gonna do that? :-)

He cracked me up too Barb, and not this time, although I have helped him out in the past. Just the old softy, thats me. lol Thanks for getting back with me on FR.
