Post Christmas Stuff Swap

Sometime before 9:00 am

I got stuck surfing an Old Navy site when I should be sorting out my things for the stuff swap. Bob asked if we needed anything when he comes in for February, so I said to check for cargo shorts for Paul, as he’s in need of those. Went from there to chatting Colly on the coconut phone, and now I’m finally going to start sorting out my stuff. Good thing I woke up early.

Green: For anyone that uses liquid laundry detergent, the containers make great watering cans. Squeeze type containers or Parmesan cheese ones for mixing plant food. Can anyone use glass coffee jars? May as well save what we can from the dump. Colette said Maya is great on recycling containers at their house.

Just as I was about to get to making my swap pile bigger, Drummer Dan called and asked if he could come by for the lawnmower – got to chatting a bit downstairs with him and Jack.

Message from Drummer Dan to all of you… Thanks for all the well wishes and concern, I am doing much better now.

10:47 am
It’s a much bigger job than I thought. Stacy and Clinton ( What not to Wear ) would definitely have mixed reactions if they saw my closet. I’m doing my best to sort through my clothes to get rid of what does not fit properly. I even have an alteration pile going. I have to say, all this trying on and analyzing is making me a bit crabby. When you live on an island it can be a bit difficult wardrobe wise.

4:14 pm
Watching total drama island and 6teen. TQ will arrive any time now. Going to send some stuff ahead with Indygal and Chris, as well as a load with Jeannie, Pam and the kids.

Later that night
Swap was crazy. Now I know why I got delayed with Shannon and Miss Dianne. When we walked in the door there was a swarm of people at the table, and Paul said that was nothing compared to the start. Paul ended up with a ton of cargo shorts from Maya, now how perfect is that? I got a couple of tops and was happy to have unloaded much more than I took. Ruth totally scored as well thanks to Colette unloading all those great capri pants. At the end of the swap there were still 2 big boxes of clothing and a few bags full of stuff for the kitchen staff to do as they pleased with. Ruthie’s pics of swap.
