Thursday Thirteen #8 - Thirteen things I need to pick up off my floor

This will be my first TT from my email....even though I already have blogger open. Oh well, LOL!!!

Must get back into this.

1. Paper of various shapes and sizes - Some are small receipts (like the McDonald's one at my feet), some are oddly shaped because kids ripped them up.

2. Short and long pieces of yarn - Between finishing up Rosa's afghan and redoing the pillow, I've done a lot of clipping yarn. Some are long pieces from cutting off the ends after I weave them in, some are really small pieces in the salvaging of yarn from the pillow's first incarnation.

3. Envelopes - Because some of those pieces of paper are pieces of mail, so they have accompanying envelopes. Plus T got a few things off ebay recently.

4. Pens - Because I keep all my pens in this never-used-for-peanut-butter jar, and P likes to get into them.

5. Various Winter Items - Coats, mittens, hats, scarves, boots. It's the middle of winter. What do you expect, really?

6. Toys - Well, I have a 2 year old. What do you expect?

7. Various pieces of clothing - in our room, I don't have a basket in there right now. In the living room, there's 2 baskets of clothes I need to fold, and those are what needs folded in there.

8. Towels - for the same reason as above (though, there aren't any towels on my bedroom floor)

Things I'm happy not to have to pick up off my floor:

9. Food - At least not the dried on, rotted kind. I pick up most of what food hits the floor

10. Poo of any kind - If it drops out of a diaper (if you're a mom you'll understand that), it quickly gets picked up. But we don't have any animals, so I don't have to worry about them too.

11. Multiple utensils - I try to keep these off the floor too. If one lands there, it will get picked up quick.

12. Mold - I may not wash my floor every month day, but at least the mess isn't so bad that it grows this disgusting stuff.

Pretty soon:

13. Me - I'm tired. And I even slept in and went to bed early last night. I've really got to get myself to a doctor! :-S

You almost painted a picture of my living room floor. Hope you make some headway soon. Thanks for the laugh.

Except the yarn you could very well be looking at my floor right now.

Keeping things picked up with a 2 year old can be hard. Good Luck! Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I would be happy to write something for you, upon invitation, but you might want to know me bit better before you made that kind of decision. Oh, and yes, picking up the poo that falls out of the diaper, quickly, is of primary importance.

Touche. I've already added you to my reader. I figured I would lurk for a while - just to get a 'feel' for what is and is not acceptable in AngelGal's Realm. (heh,heh) But,since you seem to have picked out the Dirty Old Man aspects of my character right from the gitgo - well, here I am. For better or worse.

This list makes me look around my floor and think that I should not be blogging and picking up! LOL

It's All Good! said...

Ok, with a 2 yr old I'll bet THAT pick up lasted--what--2 minutes maybe!!! Enjoyed your post!

hhahaha. oh yes, the things that need to be picked up off the floor. I'm actually constantly amazed at some of the things... many unidentifiable pieces of plastic or wood. "where on earth did you get that???"

Happy Friday.
