i got 10 more miles and i’m hittin’ that county line

Hello:) Today’s will be semi-short… again. I’ve been busy {isn’t that always my excuse? a bad one, at that, for someone with a broken ankle who rarely leaves the house!}.

I’m trying to use up many things that are almost empty, half-used, or that I don’t particularly like. I hate just throwing things away that are perfectly good, and I’ve given away what I thought others I know could use. But what is left I don’t really want to take with me when I move. Examples:

  • Candles. I recently downsized my collection of candle holders, which left with me quite a few tea lights that are half-burned. I’m trying to use those up so I can start with new, never before burned candles at the new place. I have TONS from Party Lite that haven’t been used yet. Like 6 boxes of tea lights and votives!
  • Beauty products. I plan on doing a video about this, sort of. I’ll film it tomorrow, maybe, or next week. I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll skip the deets for now. But I have many, MANY shampoos that are half used or have like maybe one use left in them. Sort of the same concept as the candles, I’m just using the nearly-empty bottles so I don’t have to pack them up. Same with makeup. I bought a lot recently, and should use my old stuff up first before I add 2 more of everything into my collection. And lotions/perfumes! Luckily, I’ve given most lotions away. I am kind of picky about my scent {I like something a bit musky as opposed to floral-y} and had a lot of very floral smelling items. Why keep them if I don’t like them?
  • Music. I recently bought an IPod from a friend {60 gb for $5- what a steal!} and wanted to better organize my collection. So far I have deleted over 1,000 songs, downloaded WHO knows how many, and and am over 1,600 songs. I still have lots to go through. I hate having sucky music, and it seems like every time I listened to music on my old phone, I’d get annoyed because I hated the songs on there. So yeah. Out with the old, in with the new! And I have trip this weekend that I’d like to have some awesome music for {it’s a 2-hour trip} so I’m in a uber hurry to finish as much as I can by Friday so I can load it up.

Needless to say.. I have been superficially busy. I saw superficial because, well, it’s not like I’m working or something. I’m cleaning. Which I guess is work for me, considering it’s about all I can do still. Oh well.

So I’m going to leave you now with my answers for this week’s wee bit wednesday, from Leigh Ashley.

{one} do you always wear your seatbelt in the car?For the most part, yes. If i’m driving, always. But if I’m riding, it really depends on who I’m riding with. Oh, and where we’re going.
{two} do you crack your knuckles? This question made me pop them! haha! Yes, I pop mine quite frequently. Toes and ankles, too.
{three} what is your favorite flavor of gum? One that tastes fruity, or like pink bubble gum. Unfortunately, I have TMJ, so I can’t really chew gum as much as I would like.
{four} what is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own? A charm bracelet that my mother started for me. I don’t wear it often, but I have several charms on there from various points of my life. I got it for my 16th birthday.
{five} who is your best friend? I would say my best friend is W. We’ve kind of grown apart recently, and sometimes we fight a LOT. But I love her and I’d do anything for her. I know she’d say the same about me. We met in HS and were inseparable.

{six} what is your favorite smell? Hmm. That’s a hard one. I love the smell of gas {that weird?} or a local factory that makes… glue? I’m not sure really what they make, but I loooove the smell.

{seven} what is your favorite lunch meat? Peppered turkey. But it has to very peppery. Like cracked pepper, not table pepper.
{eight} do you still have your tonsils? Yes. Fun fact: I wanted mine out soooo bad because like 4 of my friends had them taken out between 3rd and 4th grade, and they were telling me how awesome it was, eating ice cream, staying home, and watching movies. I wanted that, too!
{nine} do you untie your shoes before you take them off? I don’t have any that tie. Wait- yes I do! I have a pair of Keen hiking shoes. Not boots, but shoes. I don’t think I untie them, though.
{ten} what color is your car? A beautiful hunter green. But unfortunately, the paint’s fading away, so it’s splotchy. I need to get it a paint job, stat!


Ok well now I’m going to finish with my cleanings for this week. Later!
