Tupperware Fart

Moving tomorrow!!!!.....and you think I'd have something better to do then look at tupperware online. I really want some but not just any tupperware, I want the stuff I grew up with. You know the Orange, Green, Yellow and Brown stuff....I look at that and that screams my childhood.

I like the all Orange canisters, the bowls with the lids you can use as plates, the bowls with the lids like paper fans where you push in the middle to seal, the cups, the cups with the handle and the picture jug with the button you push in the lid to have a tight seal. I already have the spice canisters. I just wish I had the money to get some of the kewl stuff i'm finding. I think our kitchen with look kewl with the vintage tupperware.

Time for more packing.

So Many Boxes!!

I'm taking a break from packing to type this. I've packed so many boxes I think I might scream...and we got rid of so much in the last year. Why do I have so much crap?? Doug has his collections and I have my many collections....then there's Leif's stuff and he's a spoiled only child.

I packed away my sewing machine...I even said "Good-bye for now". I'll miss that thing...but the next time we'll meet I'll be setting up my craft room. I'm so excited to have a craft room. It so hard to keep the living room neat when it's also your craft room. Then I can start my 13 Days of Halloween Swap.....whoot!!

On a side note...I had a dream about my dad last night. He's always the fun, happy dad in my dreams and I like that. 80% of the time he was so mad and's nice to remember his smile. I hope he comes to Leif at night. Leif never met him, Leif would have liked the fun, happy grandpa.

Pirate Bathroom

So in the new house we have an extra half bathroom. Never had one of those yet....only one bathroom for me. It's on the main floor between the livingroom and kitchen so guests will be using it for sure. So since all my other rooms have themes, it needs one too. First I thought Zombie but I think it would be too we came up with Pirate!! Perfect when the livingroom is Movie theme and the kitchen will be Witch themed....kinda goes together.

I wasn't going to buy anything for that bathroom yet but I broke down yesterday. The store that sells the Roller Derby tickets sells some kewl stuff and pirates a re kewl, right? I picked up a pirate rubber ducky and a towel which is more rockabilly sailor then pirate but I think it'll look good with everything else. I don't want to much jolly roger flag stuff....that's the easy pirate way to go. I want to do more.

Time to go pack....4 more day until the move.

Happy Father's Day Mom

Ya I had a Father but he didn't raise me, my mom did. Friday my Mom moved out. 8 am I woke up to her crying. The movers were going to be here to get her stuff and her room and kitchen still need to be packed...her back was killing sister wasn't home and my brother was refusing to get out of bed. So I got up and packed her room. I filled my van with the not so easy stuff to pack and took that over.

I picked my Mom up today so she can grab more of the stuff she had to leave behind and she was crying again. My sister, who always has Sundays off, was no where to be seen and my brother was sitting on his ass watching TV. The place didn't look like anyone unpacked anything. But I know my Mom did as much as her body would allow her. With her bad hips, back, shoulders, etc....she can't do much.

I'd be over there helping if I didn't have my own stuff to pack. I move in a week and I think as soon as I'm done I'll worry about her place more. I wish I didn't have to work tonight or I could pack more of my shit.

Why do I have so much stuff?

Mom's move and Roller Derby

I've been busy with packing and mom moved out today. I'm going to miss her....but not my brother and sister. I woke up this morning with my mom crying. The movers were going to be here at 9am and there were so many things to pack. My sister wasn't home but her stuff was all packed and my brother refused to get out of bed. So I finish packing my mom's stuff and helped as much I could. A few things have been left but I can bring them over in the van in a few week. We'll be moving in 9 days.

I've been going to the Roller Derby. I enjoy it so much. Next one is in a week....but I won't let moving get in the way. I'll pack my ass of for the next week and my reward with me the Roller Derby. Everytime I go I come home wanting roller I'm rooting for my Thrashing Lassies but I'm trying not to...they are the best team. I made a shirt for myself to support the Roller Derby in general....see above
