Keep up with the entire series here.
Day 22 – Assignment: Another pile.
We aren’t quitting. Another pile to go through and deal with. This time it was a pile of what I thought was going to be T-shirts for a T-shirt quilt that Chelle was going to have made for her daughter. It all turned out to be much more than just T-shirts.
Well, I told you my office had become a dumping ground for lots of stuff. We made our way along the wall by the vanity. My office had also been used as a guest room, hence the sink and mirror. (There’s a shower on the other side of the door.) But enough of my additional useless information.
As we already mentioned in Day 21, Tracy had already been through the photo album pile. We finally got a good shot of her bangs. She was enjoying looking at my empty photo album. By the way, does anyone else buy cute photo albums and never fill them? What is my deal? But that was all so yesterday…on to Day 22.
When we arrived at the pile of T-shirts we discovered many other items in the pile in addition to the shirts. Tablecloths, sheets, pillowcases, towels, and my white sweatshirt I have been looking for lately. Also baskets, some decor items…
…and a shower curtain on sale from an end cap at Target. Apparently, I needed it so desperately that I have been storing it in the T-shirt quilt pile for the past year. (I am hiding my face in shame.)
I already had some tablecloths hanging in the closet off my office so we added some from the pile there. Looks like I will need to iron these before company. Or…shove one in the dryer to take a few wrinkles out, cover it with a centerpiece and table settings and Voila! Who will notice?
It feels so good to give the sink and counter a good cleaning.
As we went through the piles, we created the dreaded “elsewhere” pile. I really hate the “elsewhere” pile. At least I knew where the mistletoe ball would go. Down in Christmas storage. Why a mistletoe ball, you ask? I had a party at my house recently. Cleaned my whole house. Made sure it looked nice.
The morning after the party I looked up and realized our mistletoe ball from Christmas was still hanging in a doorway. (It’s mid-January.) That explains why people were kissing a lot in that area and why the guys had a particularly good time that night.
Good thing people know I am a bit of a goofball sometimes. Although, someone could have pointed out the mistletoe to me! That next morning I yanked it down and just shoved it in the office. Old habits die hard.
