And it's Tuesday already......

Good morning, Ladybugs. Decided I’d catch up here FIRST this morning instead of putting it off until "later." "Later" might not happen for me today, I have sooo much going on right now. I’m in the process of clearing out my basement. Boxes that haven’t been opened for 20 years or more have been opened and emptied and most of the contents have been thrown away. Several of the boxes contained DD’s stuffed animal collection. Most of them were stained, full of dust, and squished beyond recognition. My garbage was picked up just yesterday and I already have enough bags to fill up the can again, 5 times over – and that’s no exaggeration. I’ve got to see if DH can take some things to the dump today. How does one go about finding "the dump" anyway? You always hear people say, "I’m taking that whatever to the dump," but I don’t know where that is. Oh well, one more thing to add to my "to do" list……locate "the dump!"

My sister flew in last Tuesday and we drove up to S.C on Wednesday morning to spend 4 days with our parents. We all had a wonderful time together, just the 4 of us. Mom, Sis, and I went shopping at one of my favorite stores (twice), visited an old neighbor who is in a nursing home (also twice), and took a drive to the dairy farm to buy butter and "stuff." At night, we just sat around and talked and enjoyed the evening. Oh…and one evening….Thursday….I went out and met 8 of my high school friends for dinner and that was fun also. We are in the initial stages of planning our 45th reunion for August of next year.

Glad to see someone else calling it a dungeon.

Hello there BB,

I don't know where the "dump" is:-)

You Go Girl and keep working on that dungeon basement.
You're gonna feel so good when that project's over!!
I wish I could get J in the mood to do some purging - we are being overtaken by books.

Always wanted a basement but w/dungeon tales might have changed my mind LOL.

I can only imagine the feel good feeling you have getting rid of some of the basement clutter.

Well, it's Thursday, so that shows how far behind I am! Actually we had not TV or internet service for the past few days. Seems the outside wire had been cut. I think it was by the landscapers. Anyway, things are back to normal now..TG!
Glad you are busy doing some fun things along with the "not-so-fun"...
