Things I Found Under My Bed (I promise not to make this a meme)

Maybe.

Allergies and a bit of unexpected stress this week doth not a happy Queen make. But yesterday was Positive Day in The Blogosphere so I'll try to remember what I wrote about being positive and get off my grumpy horse.

Whenever I feel like something is beyond my control, I always clean out drawers, closets....it makes me feel as though I'm in control of something. Do any of you do that? So yesterday I tackled under the dreaded bed. Maybe it will help the allergies to get rid of dust. It's been so long since I've actually been under there...well....it was time. I broke two nails!!

What I found was quite amusing. At least to me.
And really. If you clicked on this post to find out what assorted and sordid things Mimi found under her bed, you really should get a life. Just sayin'...



A baseball bat

Twenty-seven unopened and unread magazines (More, Redbook, Today's Woman, Life) I really need to relax more, huh?


My favorite missing earring. Yay!

Green Christmas tree ornaments

A heated lotion dispenser
Two fallen slats
United Airlines plane ticket stub Gate 23 Seat 16A from Hartford to Washington Dulles

one black sock
one blue heating pad
an Elvira costume (It was a Halloween party gone awry, I swear!)
A blond wig (ditto)

Two boxes of jewelry that need organizing (tomorrow's task)


An empty suitcase with a broken zipper
Lots of dust

ACHOO!

Well... I hope the cleaning did the trick (in both getting rid of your sneezing and making you feel a bit better, too). :o)

By the way... just 1 black sock??? Why is it that we always just find 1 sock and never a whole pair??? ;o)

Happy weekend!

Mejis said...

I cleaned the bedroom yesterday, but all I found was empty beer bottles. lol
Sure the costume and wig were from a Halloween party. I totally believe that one. ;P

Smorg - Somewhere in the universe is another sock just like it. When I get to Heaven that's the first thing I'm going to ask God.

Mimi Lenox said...

Fee - That is not really my bedroom but the jewelry and boxes are mine...and there's one more box. It's a mess!! I can't find anything!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mejis - There were gloves too.....shhh.....but I swear on my pencil skirt it had something to do with a Halloween party.

Kwizgiver said...

Ya just never know what you'll find. Glad you found a favorite earring.

;-)

Xmichra said...

I would be giddy about the earing & jewel boxes!! I don't think i have lost that much stuff before...lol...

Mimi Lenox said...

Kwizgiver - They remind me of Cher's earrings. I love 'em!

Mimi Lenox said...

Xmichra - Well, the jewelry boxes weren't really "lost"...they were just hiding until the day I decided to deal with the mess. Today is the day.

Mimi Lenox said...

Oh but trust me, I can giddy about jewelry....

Thom said...

How does all that crap make it under your bed? The only thing under mine is the carpet and no dust either. Ya need a maid woman.

NurseExec said...

That's quite a diverse collection of stuff!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

And a partridge in a pear tree... :)

Travis said...

That's where the extra socks go?

The Gal Herself said...

Thanks for mentioning the slats. I struggle with those all the time, and have come to secretly suspect they really are not essential to a safe and comfortable night sleep.

I know I have the hand piece of an old phone under my bed. I see it every time I yank the window fan out and then slip it back in down there. I am not sure I still have the base. I'm not really interested enough to investigate. Somehow The Land Under the Bed doesn't really seem like my business, you know?

Next time I lose something I lookin' under your bed :D

Ferd said...

Princess Gail does that.
She likes to either clean, or organize, or paint a room when she's anxious. So, when I need to have something done around the house, I just try to make her anxious!
; )

Julie said...

Very interesting assortment of Mimi stuff. You have more control then you can imagine dear friend.

Vodka Mom said...

It reminded me of the House that Jack built.

I LOVED this idea!!!

Finding Pam said...

I use to have all sorts of stuff underneath my bed for years. I cleaned it out, but it never came back. Did you find any of my stuff? I am missing a table leaf!

Charles Gramlich said...

when I'm stressed I rearrange my books. It's also a dusty occupation. Achoo too.

Akelamalu said...

There is absolutely nothing under my bed, not even dust, honestly, because it's a waterbed on a plinth! LOL

Jean-Luc Picard said...

With all that under the bed, I'm surprised it doesn't go up to the ceiling.

Mojo said...

Umm... that Elvira costume... was that for last Halloween? Regardless, I hate I missed out on that one!

Desert Songbird said...

A blonde wig, huh? I'm intrigued...
