"On The Next Episode of 'Hoarders'...."

These are 2 photos of my basement.  Now, before you read any further, let me assure you that the rest of my house looks nothing like this.  Actually, the rest of my house is quite nice... organized, (relatively) clean, pleasant and inviting.  However, because we've been living in this house for almost 13 years and have used the basement only for storage (read: DUMPING stuff we don't quite know what to do with...) it has morphed into THIS. 

So, I told my husband (who is the most laid back man on the planet) that we either clean out and organize the basement (and NEVER let it return to this current state), OR... we call the producers of "Hoarders" and have them come out and film an episode.

I'll keep you posted on which way we go....   :)

Happy 4th of July

I normally LOVE the 4th of July.  Typically we are at our place at the beach, eating, drinking and having lotsa fun, but since it is now rental property (and thus, RENTED all Summer) we are home.  And THIS year on the 4th, in Atlanta, it is Monsoon Season.  A complete deluge.  I have 5 consecutive days off work and it's supposed to rain for every one of them. 

So here I sit, with a barometric-pressure-induced migraine (my fail-proof migraine meds are only partially BLURRING the edges of the pain and not getting rid of it... yuck...).  Add to that the fact that one of my 2 Labs HATES fireworks and is nervously pacing back and forth, licking her lips (nervous tic) and barking.  SIGH.

BUT... it is Independence Day and a day to be thankful that we live in a great country and have our freedom.  I am indeed thankful. 

Happy 4th to one and all!
