Freecycle 2 U, My Funky Junky Sista

MMA is starting to notice all the bare spots where stuff used to live.

But has my spring cleaning gone too far?

I had this old sumpin' or other laying around my house that was a gift that I loved and enjoyed for years. Then it sat in a cabinet collecting dust. I never had the heart to get rid of it. So I loaded it in the car today and dropped it off on my SIL's front porch. When she was suppose to be at work.

Hee Hee.

I figured she'd find it and wonder about the secret benefactor that knows her tastes so well. Warm fuzzies. (Or call me and say, "what the hell?")

In truth, I really thought she would appreciate the little re-gift because the colors compliment her lovely house.

Well, before I could even pull off the street she was pouncing my cell phone to ask "What the drive-by do you think you're doing?"

We had a little laugh before she affirmed what I already know...we're just two junkaholics trying to stay clean and take it one day at a time. The last thing she needs is me offering her my knick knacks, much less dropping them off.

I promised to pick it up on Sunday.

Maybe she'll change her mind.

What she should have done was spied it was you, and then brought over double the junk to your house on a drive by to return the "favor".

Reminds me of the Office episode where Dwight and the other guy keep returning each others's favor.

Ha Ha... love it. I've never thought of just dropping off my old stuff at someone's doorstep. I LOVE it. I want to do it now!

Hi, I started following you few weeks ago... is it your Mom you're talking about?
You're really serious about this free-yourself-from-junk thing... Inspiring though, I am on the same path. Not easy! :)

Well, it's Sunday....did you pick it up? :)

I have a friend that I exchange a certain gift back and forth with...problem is it's not an honest, from the heart, "I think you'll like it" gift. It's a terrible wedding gift that neither of us want.

Speaking of...they're in my possesion. I need to get them back to her. ASAP.
