The definition of "stuff" LOL!

** As some of you may or may not know, I have several online stores in which I sell my "stuff"  - this particular entry is a repost from my previous blog that I used to use strictly for my store shoppers. I was rereading some old posts from that blog and it made me laugh (again) so I figured it was worth re-posting.**

When it comes to four letter words one should not repeat- in our house 
is one of them.
This word has  become the bane of my husband's existence- as he generically categorizes everything I have for sell, everything I hand craft or yes even those catch all items that tend to gather among the shelves as "stuff"
It's not "merchandise" to him- it's simply "stuff"
as in "Honey, did you sell any of your stuff today?"
"Hey when are we gonna get rid of some of this stuff?"

Yet despite all of his woeful and verbose opinionings on the evils of "stuff" he still takes me to auctions and shows, and once in a blue moon, if I bat my eyes just right, he still signs the checks for payment when I am just "a little short" on cash to get this or that  :)
Then once we get home and he starts unloading the car it decidedly becomes "stuff" again
 as in
"why in the world did you get all of this stuff"
"We don't need this stuff"
and the ever popular
"we have enough stuff, you don't need to get anymore stuff"
and the not to be forgotten
"from now on, no more stuff until you sell the stuff you already have"

Then he reads the Sunday paper and says "Hey,  there's an auction at ..... wanna go ?"
hmmmm maybe he's is an enabler and doesn't know it? LOL

So while the other members of your household may go on and on about all  the "stuff" you have, deep down (and in my husband's case deep deep DEEP down) they know that all that stuff has a purpose somewhere and they are just giving you, well- "stuff" about it!

Check out my store full of "stuff" at

You never know what you might find and if you decide to buy, well my husband sincerely thanks you!

Back to just THIS side of.... CRAZY

Finally found my way back........ to CRAZY (lol)

So, oh my and holy cow! I haven't posted for well, literally years! I went to a non digital version of life for a while and after some drama here and there ("here drama, there drama everywhere drama drama -- ole McDOnald... um wait-  wrong topic LMAO!) I finally found my way back to some of the things I love to do more than anything else... like talk, write and craft (watch out world you are now being exposed to my lunacy in TRIPLICATE).

Don't you feel lucky?!?! HAHA  in any case if you aren't frightened by my crazy, nuttiness yet you might hang out with me for a bit cause I think I might make regular visits. After all I figure if I have to live "Just this side of crazy" why not share the experience? LOL  look at it this way... you can be totally sane and still enjoy my fantastic level of genius insanity (and you get to remain "safe")

So pop in and out as you wish and if you get a chance you might read my previous posts (lucky you- there aren't many)   that way you at least have a heads up into the strange workings of my brain - and it gives you a chance to get away before I draw you further in!  HAHAHAHAHAHA

WOW I seriously add side note to myself ALOT!  lol

Sorry but....

I never duplicate posts on my two separate blogs but I have become rather frustrated as of late when I read about the recent devastation in the Midwest and other areas and it seems people constantly take the time to direct focus away from where it should be- on those in need. EVERY single video, post, news article etc seems to end with comments from readers debating religious and political topics, ranting and showing hatred and bigotry of all kinds instead of expressing concern or compassion for the people that are the true topics of the article (video, news story etc) So in my frustration my most recent post on my other blog is being duplicated here- my apologies to those that have fanned both and see the duplication- I couldn't help it.

"I know it's been awhile, things have been rather crazy around here lately.. but I wanted to take a moment to send out thoughts of comfort and caring to those directly affected by the recent bought of horrible tornadoes and storms. The areas that have been flooded and that are still being flooded throughout the Midwest AND to the Joplin community and surrounding areas.
     I have seen many posts with different takes on "why" this happened and who or what to blame or thank and I just wanted to say that I think it is important that we focus on the PEOPLE and FAMILIES that have been affected and forget the politically correct and incorrect. In my opinion this is not really the time or place to argue, sermonize or criticize.. those people need our help and kindness and whatever else we can give; they have all suffered devastating losses and terror beyond belief. Let's show some compassion and save the debates for later."

I know, I Know........

I promised to finish the "just because" story, and I will but not for a bit because, well I just haven't felt like it.
 Lol,  Don't ask..............

Anyway, I have found that I am clearly lacking motivation-- I think I might be a procrastinator
  I'll let you know later.

Okay, I have a million things I should be doing (who doesn't ?) but lately I just can't seem to stick with any one thing; I want to be creative and make this or that, I want to list more things in my store, I want to win a million dollars, I want- er wait... I REALLY want to win a million dollars! :P 
(I might buy a ticket- next week)

Moving on to nothing in particular...........
I have realized that I am a proverbial genius when it comes to creative ideas, and IF I stick to it I'm not too bad at creating whatever thing I was a genius in thinking up 
(that IF word is so important to my life as I know it)

So lately, when my genius self comes up with an idea i think about how to do it and then...... I think about it some more and then.... I sit there..........

Maybe I should drink a Red Bull... I need wings
Hmmmm , maybe tomorrow.....

Just because ....

So I use the same profile pic for most of the sites I belong to... yes that one over there with the crazy lookin' people all grinnin' and that nutty broad (yep it's me) holding onto a parachute. Everyone I know in real time asks me why I always use that pic; easy- 
Just because....
Actually, it's "just because" I am petrified of heights, terrified of flying and don't even get me started on small spaces! That photo reminds me that despite the possible "wet my pants" terror I feel about all of those things, I somehow managed to sky dive solo- and on my very first try thank you very much :P

Now all of you psych 101s don't get too excited- I'm still petrified of heights, terrified of flying and small spaces?forget it! BUT I can say I did it. I actually want to do it again but then I start thinking about that moment I had to climb out of the plane and hang onto the wing before I let go....
"What? You mean you didn't just jump?!?!"  you say...
 uh NO

So there's 5 hours of classroom and on the ground training for
 first timers.
This incorporates videos and hands on with a setup in the hangar.
Seriously, they had no idea what they were getting themselves into when they said
"why of course we will teach you"

~Silly wabbit- tricks are for kids~

So we had , um 6 hours of training during which I excelled at being the crazy chick that I am.
Poor guys didn't know whether to laugh their arses off at my antics and purely big mouth
OR smack me silly and fail me straight out of the class.
SUCKERS-  they passed me 
(must be my charming personality HAH!)

In any case, I put the chute suit on and am rippin' and roarin' to go 
I begin to approach the very small plane....


so.. I climb into the plane (lol yep I AM an idiot)
Meanwhile my husband, who so thoughtfully came along for support (and to laugh at me) watches expectantly to see me get back out of the plane (which I didn't HAH!)

It took all of 5 seconds of the plane going down the runway before I started chanting "I changed my mind, I changed my mind...." really- there's no seat, I'm on the floor, there's a couple of instructors sitting behind me, I'm virtually AGAINST the door and the pilot is in the only seat; which rocks to and fro as the plane moves- yeah I am so not ready to do this! Small spaces+plane= me not good and what did I say I was going to do? Jump out of a plane?!?!

Moving on... after the instructor says "are you kidding me?!?!"   I say "yes, no, yes, no" and then finally "just go" because frankly ALL of the voices in my head are telling me I am one crazy *&^%$ and they do NOT want to go- 
so I rebelled.

"Check out the rest of the nutty story next time- cause my fingers hurt and I think I'm long winded lol!"
