July is fast coming to an end – only one more week?  Sheesh – somebody find that ‘pause’ button, quick!  With all the hectic activity going on around here, I kind of feel like this dinosaur:


Bet you’re wondering what kind of dinosaur that is, aren’t you?  It’s actually a Spazosaurus – Princess Nagger thought it was hilarious. 

A few weeks ago paleontologists reportedly unearthed a nearly intact skeleton of a Spazosaurus, an extraordinary discovery providing evidence indicating that the awkward, uncoordinated, and peculiar creature was the largest doofus to ever roam the earth. 

Princess Nagger’s happy to know she’s not the only doofus roaming the earth.

Speaking of doofus…  My virtual friend (as opposed to invisible friend) and amazing artist James C. Mulligan posted this on his Facebook wall the other day with this note: “Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s master plan FINALLY REVEALED!!”  I thought it was hysterical:


See?  Hysterical.

Speaking of hysterical…  Here’s another funny Facebook image, too:


I’m totally going to do this.  Let the eye-roll commence.

Speaking of eye-rolling…  It’s amazing how much stuff can accumulate over the years.  Especially when you happen to have the pack-rat gene, and the mindset of “I better hang on to this, I might need it some day…”  mode.  Only ‘some-day’ never actually comes, and you end up with random piles of stuff that is tedious to sift through to make sure there’s really nothing absolutely important in the mix. 

Since I’ve been pulling stuff out to purge before packing, my house is currently looking like a bad “Hoarder’s” episode right now – I truly hate having things in such an unruly state (read: disaster area) but it’s a necessary evil if I’m going to be ready for the movers. 

I’m actually looking forward to the dumpster getting here so I can shift into high gear in purge mode – I’m going to adopt my hubby’s mindset on things that I haven’t used and/or looked at in more than six months needs to be gone. 

Besides, I have more than enough winemaking equipment and wine that I need to move, so that’s obviously going to take priority.  Ahem.

Speaking of priorities…  I’ve got so much  to do before our move next month, I need to take a break from my blog while I purge, pack and move across country.  But no worries, I’ll still ‘see’ you for Wordless/Wordful Wednesday tomorrow, but after that I’ll need to step away from my computer and get busy packing and purging with a vengeance.

Stay tuned, though, because between now and September 9th I just might have to take a break from my break from my blog and throw a fun post of the random ‘fun’ we’ll be having as we prepare for our big move – I’m thinking launching things out the attic window at the dumpster might be worthy of a post.

I’ll be back with Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel on September 10th – that’s a promise.  Meanwhile, I’ll leave the linky open until then, so feel free to link up each week on this same linky so I can peruse your posts when I need a break from all the craziness!

That’s a wrap for this week – link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. Be sure to visit your fellow randomizers so they don’t feel so lonely.

More Tuesday hops – if you’re stopping by here from there, please do me a favor and follow via LinkyFollowers – since I was robbed of my GFC followers when the cads at Google decided to boycott non-Blogger blogs. The Tuesday hops seems to have diminished – if you have one let me know and I’ll add you here, too!

  1. Wow! No Random until September?! What are we going to do? And I’d love to see the video of launching stuff into the dumpster. Maybe you can have a ceremonial bonfire? Good luck!
    Gretchen would like you to read ..RerunsMy Profile

  2. Six months? I would go with six weeks! That would be hardcore purge mode. I am at that point, just to clear out the clutter.

    Take care of yourself on your hiatus!

  3. I wish you all the best in your move, and can’t wait to see and hear all about your adventure and new life.
    I know what it was like to move 1500 miles after 6 years. I can only imagine what you are dealing with!!!
    I am so glad we got to met in real life in Philly for PNs birthday! I am just sorry we not were able to get together again!
