The catch is you have to come prepared to work and when you leave you have to take five things with you and it can't be my DH or my baby girls.  devil devil devil devil devil
 
It's a little over three weeks til Thanksgiving and what started out as one little project has now snowballed into an avalanche of STUFF. It will be 10 yrs in Jan that my mother died and I have never really dealt with her STUFF that has been added to my STUFF. I do believe the STUFF multiplies when we are not looking. A few months ago my DH got me flowers and I couldn't find a vase to put them in, I found five of them yesterday.
 
Come on over girls, you can wade in STUFF with me.
 
luv and hugs
Marlee

I am on my way Marlee, but I have to hitchhike, so I have to take small items. Any knickknacks??? lol...

I have been working now for five months, feel very good about that. So I am up for the chore. See you soon.

Since I need the exercise I will be biking over.  I can put small items in my bike basket.  Any embroidered pillowcases, ceramic anything, recipes clipped out of magazines, p.j.'s, anything knitted or crocheted?  I could use some more of this stuff to add to the collection from both of our moms.

I'm on my way!  Do you have a bundt pan?  I need one and can't find mine.  If you do, please set it aside for me.  I'll be there in a few hours.

I'm coming with Eddie the Claw and Toe Jam.  They will eat anything from your fridge that is oozing, expired for a year or more or is green with mold.  Got any of that?  How are you fixed for extra heating pads?  I am sure you have bought two or three on sale, forgot, and put them someplace special.  Toe Jam LOVES anything shiney so if you're looking to unload jars of thumb tacks or roofing nails, he will take those off your hands also.

Do you have a chain saw?  Don't ask...I have something very special of the hubby's I want to whack into a million pieces as I am sick of tripping over it.  See you soon...now don't turn off the lights and pretend you are sleeping when you hear us pull up in our 1972 VW Bus....

If you have one Bundt pan you must have another because I need one too for Christmas cakes, so dibs on the other one! I am also drooling over the big stack of National Geographics in the garage so I can look at all the beautiful places.

Oh, I forgot...I know how unusual that is!  smilewinkgrin    I will be happy to take a few of your purses off your hands.  yeah    I do have an extra heating pad.  I bought one and then found my other in a drawer so I'll bring it along for the members to use while at your house.  I'll also bring an extra roll of duct tape just in case Eddie the Claw and Toe Jam get out of control again.

Yes, there is a chain saw in the garage and don't even get me started on the garage or I may use it on some of Ken's stuff out there. devil I know I have at least one bundt pan, haven't used it in years. I have a stand mixer of course I haven't used that in years either. I have plenty of knick knacks for you Karen. I'm sure you will all leave happy.
 
I had an idea for Thanksgiving dinner, instead of using Chinette plates this year, only the best for my family, I will use real dishes and they have to wash them and take them home when they leave. I can get rid of six settings with youngest son's family alone. smilewinkgrin
 
I went from a hundred year old two story house that I had decorated in what I called country victorian to a modern day house and my taste has changed. Plus my motto is simplify, simplify, simplify.
 
Sherrine, I haven't gotten to the guest room closet and my purse collection yet but there might be a few in there I will part with. I know there are coats in there that need to be donated before it gets too cold. They have coat donation boxes this time of year.
 
I really moved a lot of STUFF yesterday and figured I wouldn't be able to get out of bed this morning but I don't hurt anymore than usual. I have to do laundry today and there is a small path to the laundry room.
 
Oh, I even have a chocolate fountain my uncle gave me we can use at the party. That should keep everyone going.
 
luv and hugs

Miss Marlee...Do you want 'the cannon' again...huh?  Seriously.  Here I sit in your driveway after driving all night with two so called men who had to scrape up every piece of road kill we passed...you know...for a 'snack'...not to mention the exhaust fumes and having to listen to Toe Jam play banjo music all night long...

I see all the cars of all your other volunteers so I KNOW you're in there.  open the &^%&*@ door or I swear...you'll get The Cannon. 

BTW...all of your lawn furniture is in the back of the van.  Wrought iron...very very nice.  Thanks.

Oh boy,

Knick knacks, just a little more for me to dust. But I can handle that.

I am sorry that you had to stop for all the road kill Donna, but it sounds like your friends got a good buzz from the exhaust fumes. lol...

This is a blast. I could use a new purse too. So Sherrine, be ready to fight over them. hahaha...

I'm sorry Donna but you must have gotten here when the cribbage board fell, corner first, on top of my foot and I couldn't hear you over my screaming. I'm not sure it didn't crack a bone.
 
I have some two week old German goulash that Ken made for the boys to go with the road kill.
 
As I figured, I'm tired and I quit for the day, help yourselves to whatever I'm going to go shower.

Hi, everyone!  It's great seeing you again...even Eddie the Claw and Toe Jam!  You know, those rose bushes over there look wonderful.  I love roses and now that the cold weather is bearing down here, I think I'll take these back to Florida with me.  I don't think Marlee will mind....or notice!  cool    They'll fit nicely in my trunk, along with the bundt pan and a couple of purses.  I might have to sneak in the guest room and check out Marlee's purses myself.  Knowing her, she will give me an ancient, dusty macrame purse from the 70's.  I'm sure she has one of those.
 
Well, I better get in the house and get busy because I don't want those roses to die in the car.

Hey...who took the shoes off my feet while I was sleeping...huh?  These attractive babies were hard to come by...Fibromite Shoes.  You are all supposed to be stealing...I mean 'cleaning out' Marlee's stuff.  Bad fibromites....bad bad fibromites.

Oooohhh...... I love fibro parties. Actually Marlee, if any of those vases is a small bud vase, I would love to take it off of your hands. I was needing one the other day, and of course, there were none to be found!

Whatever made me think I could invite my Fingertip family to come help me with my STUFF problem without there being problems???? Sherrine, your out of luck, pretty much all my roses died over the summer from something and I'm locking up the purse collection along with any valuables with Donna's friends here.
 
Donna, I like your fibromite shoes, comfy. smilewinkgrin
 
Another day of dealing with STUFF. I'm tired of all this STUFF. How did I acquire so many throws, you all can take some of them. I have magazines from 2004 I was going to look through and never have. Anyone need a toy box???
 
It sounds like we need to move to Jhemi's house after we get finished with mine she has so much STUFF she can't get out her door.
 
luv and hugs
Marlee

Sherrine,

Get your hands off of that old macrame purse, that is mine!!! Maybe we can cut it in two and have little hand bags, it is big enough.

Donna,

How are your buds? They sure look stoned from the exhaust fumes. lol...

Marlee,

Where are those kick knacks? I have been looking all over for them! This is so much fun... Like a free garage sale, oh I forgot, we are suppose to be cleaning. Too much stuff to look for. lol...

Have a great day everybody!!!

Hugs, Karen

I knew the chocolate fountain would get to someone Robin. smilewinkgrin
 
Anyone need a phone??? I don't think I have thrown one away since the first cordless come out.
 
I had a thought, I k-n-o-w shocked me too Sherrine!!! Could my new found motivation and extra energy, although I'm not feeling either at the moment, be coming from the fact that I have pretty much been gluten free for three months now and my small intestine is healing and I'm getting more nutrients??? I really thought once it started healing I would start packing on the pounds like crazy which I haven't but then I haven't had any cookies, cake, pastries not even a slice of regular bread for three months. Do I dare hope that I will now have a little more energy all the time??? Can't say the soreness isn't setting in from all I have done this week so fibro is making sure I don't forget about it.
 
Sorry Karen and Sherrine my great niece has already helped herself to any vintage handbags in the closet she is really into those things.
 
I will be checking cars and bodies to make sure all my comfy STUFF that I can't live without remains in my house when you leave. devil
 
Donna will you please tell your friends the wine in the kitchen and dining room is there for decoration purposes only and it is not to be drank???
 
luv and hugs
Marlee

Hey, did you guys hear Marlee?  She thought we would come to a party to clean!  HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!  That's not what our fibro parties are for.  Marlee, you know better than that and, if you think a little lock will stop me from finding my purfect purse, you've got another think coming!  devil
 
Donna, will you puleese get it through Toe Jam's thick skull that I do NOT want that raccoon that was squashed by the semi for my lunch!  He keeps waving it under my nose and I keep barfing on Toe Jam and he smiles!   shocked    I think he considers that a compliment.  smhair    You brought him so you need to control him.
 
Karen, I did spot some Lladro figurines in Marlee's dining room.  I'm not sure if they are the ones she was talking about but they are mighty nice!  I bet if you slipped one in your macrame purse she wouldn't notice until we left.
 
Robin, she has a chocolate fountain and she is giving it away, too!  I'm bringing a funnel for me.  That way I don't miss a drop but still can keep my face clean. 
 
Austen, she does have a bud vase.  I know I saw a lovely crystal one on a bookcase.  But, the other vases are all the same shape...you know the ones that florists use now that look like spittoons.  She can keep those.
 
Puppylover, be sure to bring a lock for your bike.  Eddie the Claw loves cycling and, with  your basket, it would be easy for him to carry the roadkill back to us.  I don't think you want your nice bike used like that.  Besides, when he got through with it, it would really smell and you have to ride it back home again.
 
Has anyone seen Jhemi?  Is she doesn't show up in a half an hour, we will go and rescue her.  She doesn't want to miss this great party! 
 
Oh, Marlee, where is the food?????

Sorry about the wine, Marlee.  The boys don't drink it...they use it to disinfect their toe nail fungus.  But I will speak to them as I am sure you have some inexpensive Jack Daniel's that they can soak their 'dogs' in.  They did clean out the goulash for you though, didn't they?  And hardly any diarrhea accidents at all!

I still want to know who stole my shoes.  Owie...it hurts to walk barefoot through all this stuff.

This party is the bomb!!! Did I hear somebody say something about cleaning? Donna's friends said that they would clean the mess when we got done.

I am putting all the knick knacks in my new purse. I will use this fine linen to wrap them up in so that they don'e get chipped.

Oops, Sorry Marlee, I think I spilled some wine on your new carpet. Toe Jam is licking it up though. Good deal. These guys are like vacuums Donna.
