COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET



For some reason, Sandy decided to show her bathroom linen closet.  Then she showed it AFTER she cleaned it out and straightened it up.

NOT TO BE OUTDONE, I will not only give you the picture of my bathroom linen closet before I attacked it, and after I was finished, (like she did) but also DURING the scourge.  Cuz she ain't got da ballz.

I had been putting it off for two weeks with the excuse  "We've only lived here two years.  How much trash could be in there?"

After she did it, I had no choice.  After all, what if she would visit and ask to see my linen closet?   You don't think she would?  She's a bitch on wheels!  Of course she would.  And my size 22W underpants are right there!  Omar's tent.  See?

Just kiddin'.  So you can stop enlarging the photo now.


11 a.m.


I thought I knew everything that was in there, but just couldn't find it.

Little did I realize I had duplicates of most things, and triplicates of WART REMOVER.  

I have never had a wart in my life and neither has Stud.  I guess they were on sale.

I spent the next FIVE HOURS THAT I'LL NEVER GET BACK, taking breaks.  

Steve Wilcos was on with a NEW episode.  

Jerry Springer had a transvestite stripper contest.  

And I really did need that Diet Dr. Pepper and a cigarette......four times.

Stud walked in to take a look at the melee progress and walked out laughing.  He has no confidence in me.


The little plastic cabinet with drawers that you see in the back, was doing duty in the garage for holding dry swiffer pads.  But there's an ap for that.  It's called THE BOX THEY CAME IN.

Four Diet Dr. Peppers and four MISTYs later.....


4 p.m.




Take THAT, Sandy.

    You know, it's only a 17 hour drive from Florida to Texas. If you leave now you can be here this evening and clean out mine!

    1. I don't want to miss your visit. Make sure and email me the estimated arrival time and I'll bring the closet with me. I'm NOT letting you in my house, cuz there's more than one closet in here and I'm NOT going to clean all of them.

      AS IT IS, I can't find one damn thing in my new organized closet.

  3. Oooh, come on over I have rooms that make your closet as it started out look pristine! I need a personal organizer, or perhaps just a dump truck... or better yet a match. I've considered it!

    1. Josie, when we moved from a house I had lived in for SIXTY YEARS, along with mom's stuff, dad's stuff, my stuff, I thought I was going to lose my mind. Decades of junk covered by dust.

      Sometimes a match is a woman's best friend.

  5. Well done! Is that a vibrator on the top shelf? Sandy's rescued pup is adorable.

    Love,

    1. The vibrator comment got me. Luckily, I was sitting away from my keyboard.

    2. Well, it's a curling iron, so if Janie likes hot sex....I've got your vibrator.

  6. Looks great! Love the "Before" and "After". That "During" is downright scary. I didn't enlarge to find Omar's tent, but after JJ's comment above, I did scan for the vibrator.

    1. Everything Janie sees, that is long and black, she thinks of her vibrator.

    2. I don't even OWN a vibrator. But my mom did. It was supposed to be a chin vibrator. Now I ask you, who would you vibrate your chin?

      Delete
    3. I think I meant WHY would you vibrate your chin. And I have a reference to your closet in my latest blog post on bra fittings and vibrators.

    1. He's a brave soul, since I usually have my Sig on my hip. Just make sure you run for cover in a zigzag pattern.

  11. Great job on the closet. I am cracking up over Janie's comment. By the way, whatever happened to the vibrator you had in Indiana...remember the one that was featured in your old blog?

    1. Ginger, I can't imagine doing what I did. I feel 100 years older now than I did then, and I don't think my present readers would be able to handle it.

      (Only you and I know....)

      shhhhh

    2. Some of us are still around and DO remember...that's why I kept searching until I found you again!! Oh, and thanks for the info on the Remora holsters...after conversations with Alan, just ordered one!

  12. Now all you need to do is put a false back on that closet and store guns and ammo ! LOL

    1. I'm always more interested in how to take it with us. I've got to get back on track with what matters, and I've been easing up on being prepared to get out if necessary.

  13. My 14 year old just cleaned out our food pantry today. She was so disgusted with how the others put the food away she decided, on her own, to tackle it. I should have taken before pics. I did take during and after though.

    1. GOOD FOR YOU! Things they accomplish around the house are rarely photographed. If she placed everything alphabetically, with the names facing forward and the newest toward the back, you just might have a problem child. lol But in a goooood way.

  14. Over from Janie's, and I am most impressed. :) I recently did the same with our closet in the bathroom. I even busted out the husband's label maker and labeled all our bins. My friend came by (the same one that on the first time I met her, she said "Don't judge me by my housekeeping skills" before she let me in her house) and needed mascara. She nearly fell over when she saw how clean and organized it was.

    Thankfully she didn't fall into the bathtub... that thing hasn't been cleaned in weeks. :)

    1. LOL. I wouldn't bother labeling my things. Those size 22W underpants kinda jump out at me.

  15. Hey lotta joy!

    Me thinks this is a case of closet wars. And your closet is one of the most exciting things I've ever laid my lil' ol' eyes. Yes, save you saying this, I should get out more.

    I once had a 'wardrobe' malfunction. The wardrobe had the the wrong instructions and the wrong screws.

Go ahead and say it. I can always delete it.
