Clutter and Sunday stuff.

Clutter is something I really don't like.

These pictures make my head hurt.

That's what the last couple of weeks have looked like.

Of course, it doesn't look like that now.  It's barren and empty and I'm sure pictures of blank walls and needing-to-be-scrubbed carpets would just depress you.  But, strangely, I like it.  
The less stuff I have around me, the less cluttered my mind feels.


1.  This story on fishing restrictions was the Alaska news headline on Friday. (When I turned on the t.v. at 5:30am, it was the first thing they talked about.)  Think about that for a second...

2. There's an awful lot of liberal people out there who are saying they want that Boston bomber guy to be punished in some brutal ways.  Um...if you're into letting anyone into the country and protecting their rights, you can't "strap someone to a bomb".  Way to contradict yourself.

3.  I think I'm going to miss my job.  I'll probably not miss being overly explicit in every little thing I do and say though.

4.  I really thought this was how it was going to go down at the dentist last week...

5.  Isn't this the truth??

6.  Speaking of funny, we went to see The Croods the other night.  I'm not a cartoon fan, and I never even watched cartoons as a kid.  However, we had nothing better to do and it was the only movie playing that looked even remotely good.  I laughed the entire way through.  You should go see it.  Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, and Nicholas Cage as cave people.  It was great.

Anyway, I hope you find something to laugh at on this Sunday.  

Even if it's just smiling widely at the idea of Pete Campbell finally getting what he deserves.



  1. I hate clutter too, it drives me crazy. I'm always amazed by how much we accumulate when it comes time to clean out a closet or pack. Trudy telling Pete to get out was the best moment of the season so far, love it.

  2. Ugh I hate Pete! He's such a tool.

  3. Clutter bothers me so much!! Living with 4 people, I've come to deal with it a little, but when I'm home by myself, I make piles of stuff that's been sitting around forever and put them outside people's rooms haha.

  4. Clutter makes me crazy! That juncture in time when you're trying to get packed but need to leave things out to use is the worst.

    Also--your bathtub is beautiful.

  5. That meme about flossing cracked me up! Do you think you will try to teach in Missouri?

  6. So I opened your blog, and Angel's sleeping on the couch behind me, and suddenly he says, "Whoa! Whose house is that?" I told him it's okay, you're moving. I also appreciate clean and empty or mostly empty rooms. I want to move--sooner rather than later.

  7. Moving clutter is never fun. It drives me crazy to have all the clutter around.

  8. LMAO at the dentist!! This is so true. I hate flossing, I just did a couple nights ago and my mouth was aching. I guess I'm not the only one.



  9. Oh, I hate clutter. SO stressful! I think I'd prefer barren too. :)

  10. Packing gives me legit anxiety. We're in the process of house hunting and I have been thinking I should start now to organize and throw ish out so I don't have a heart attack later. Of course I haven't physically DONE anything,lol. Also, I am one season behind on Mad Men, what does Pete do?! No really, you can't tell me {obviously} but I am so curious!

  11. I LOVE Ryan Reynolds! I didn't know he did a voice in that movie, I must see it now! Oh, and I'm also glad to hear that it was funny, too! :)

    And yes, yes, yes to your thoughts on Mad Men!

  12. Ugh. Moving. I hope it is relatively painless!!

    The boys want to see The Croods, hopefully next week!

  13. Moving is the worst but you get to leave Alaska!!

  14. I hate the whole moving process. Makes me feel all out of sorts.

  15. That Tina Fey quote makes me very uncomfortable. LOL
