Yesterday my friend Denise sent me an email that said “I’m eating Tootsie Rolls” which meant . . her box of fun had arrived. I had already checked my tracking info and knew my package was supposed to arrive today but to my surprise, it arrived yesterday, a day early. Yummy yarn! I hurriedly emptied the box, carried the empty box the “empty box pile”, deposited the yarn in the sewing room, and then threw away the invoices. There were two of them! The kitchen trash was almost full so I stuffed the invoices in there, along with a bit more trash and took the bag out to the big can.
At some point during the night . . like around 3 a.m., I woke up thinking about my Camp Loopy project and the thought hit me . . I threw away my invoice and it tells me what group I’m in for the camp fun!
Guess who was out digging in the trash bright and early this morning! Thank goodness Vince had just made a trip to the landfill and he always cleans and disinfects the trash can when he returns from the dump run so it was clean and smelled kinda good. The bag I put in yesterday was the only bag in there so I had to turn the big can on its side and get the back out with the rake handle. I could have asked Vince to retrieve the bag for me but then I would have to explain what I was looking for in the trash.
Whew! Glad that paper was on top and the trash can wasn’t nasty and stinky!
