That picture above is what my freezer looked like the day before Paula came to my house. With excessive explanation, I could have pointed out the homemade meatballs in the freezer bag. I could have blathered on about the attempt at homemade smoothie mixes that really needed to be thrown out. It had been . . . ummm, a while since the covering fell off the yogurt-filled ice tray and an Oreo cookie cake crumbled all over it.
But . . . this is what it looked like when she came:
What’s that? Oh, it’s just the NO SUGAR added ice cream in a totally-disciplined-sized container. And frozen vegetables and fruit front and center.
And those freezer bags? Oh, well . . . that’s just a little something I do called Freezer Cooking.
Pre-cooked ground beef . . . shredded chicken, it’s nothing really.
I’ve come a long way in accepting that it’s okay to let people see how we really live, but I do have my limits.
Don’t know who Paula is? Oh, she’s just someone who came into my house along with a NATIONAL NEWS CAMERA recently.
I know that this is unrelated to this post but I saw on FB that you have a problem with shoe odour – if you have any newspaper around try stuffing it in the shoes every night. It absorbs any moisture in the shoes and it absorbs foot odour! We had that problem with my son and it worked like a charm. We used the paper from old flyers that are delivered to us free so it was a very cheap option:)

Thank you! I’ll try that! This is actually (what I’m pretty sure is) a unique odor problem. I’m planning to write a post about it. It’s kind of a mystery.
Makes me giggle. You could be my cyber twin. My inlaws are coming in two days. (LOVE them) They are also moving locally. I’ve been frantically trying to declutter and clean like a mad woman. (oh and I have fibromyalgia) I have over done it…then FELL going up some stairs today. I am hurting. They may have to see the house in REAL condition a bit…or I may have to get the family cleaning. 🙂
Dana, my husband was recently diagnosed with hyper-hydrosis, which made him sweat more than most people and also made his feet smell terrible. His doctor was the one who told us, and then perscribed the medicine to make it quit. Might try that out. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!
