So What Wednesday!

This week I am saying So What If….

~I found myself watching Thomas the Train yesterday during nap time. I KNEW I was watching, yet I didn’t change it.
~Seeing pictures of kids playing in floodwaters on Facebook makes me want to throw up. That water is just so gross…
~I ordered stickers from an etsy seller in the Europe yesterday? What? #helpme
~I hoard all the fancy candles I get and burn them alone in my office.
~I don’t know if I should sort through all the boys old clothes to sell the higher-end ones or if I should just call it a day and donate them all.
~L called me out on my wash tape and Starbucks addiction yesterday.
~I am looking forward to the first time the boys are old enough to have an all-night sleepover in each other’s rooms. I am even looking forward to “yelling” at them for giggling too loud and staying up too late talking, but I won’t really even be mad and they’ll know it and keep talking.
~I don’t watch Shark Week or drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
~I accidentally ordered B a new watch with his Beposke Post box this month. I didn’t realize if it was in your cart when it was time for your box to get charged you’d be charged for that too. Oops. My bad. Enjoy the new watch B.
~I haven’t gotten any subscription boxes in my mailbox the last two days. I got one from FedEx. Nothing from the mailman. Where are they all?
~I am currently engaged in a giant battle of “the garbage game” with B and I refuse to lose this one (*).

That’s it from here. What are you saying so what to this week?

(*) That would be when you KNOW the garbage is too full but you refuse to take out the trash and replace the garbage bag. So childish.  And I am so winning.

      I do too!

    You said so what if you were drinking pumpkin spice lattes. Is it true? Does Starbucks have them out? I feel like I need to get on that if they do.

    1. Jennifer

      Oh I totally typo’ed that! It should have said “I don’t” like drinking them. Oops! Anyway, I don’t think they are out yet. But I think they will be soon because Starbucks is talking about them!

  2. Jenny

    Oh the floodwaters on the tv this morning are nasty. Do not let people go in there ugh so gross.
    I sorted my boys clothes and have been trying to sell the more expensive stuff but I’m almost over doing it all. I’m about ready to donate it all or maybe take it to the local consignment place and see if I can get anything for it. I keep seeing lots for sale in my local FB sale pages I need to see if things are selling that way. So many thoughts. I’m cleaning out toys now so I need to figure out how to get rid of those too.

    1. Jennifer

      I am over it and I haven’t even started yet!

      1. Jenny

        Mine got pushed aside so I can work on my craft sale items. My friend is having her stampin’ up consignment sale next week so I have to tag and price all my crafty stuff. Its so hard thought since they are all so pretty but if I can’t remember the last time I used it or I have never used it then I should probably try and sell it so that I can get new pretties. LOL

    Can you play the garbage game with yourself? Because I live alone and I am like that all the time.

    I’m feeling abandoned by the mailman, as well…my Julep mystery box is STILL sitting at a DHL hub less than 30 miles away, more than 48 hours after they first scanned it! If I don’t see some movement on the tracking today, I’m going to start bothering DHL about it.

    1. Jennifer

      Oh you totally can play by yourself!!!

      DHL is seriously the worst. But it’s possible tracking just hasn’t updated and it will magically appear at your house. That has happened to me a few times.

    From my own experience in PA – I made good money selling my younger’s son higher-end clothes at flash consignment sales which are big sales held twice a year for a week or two at a time. It wasn’t worth it for other brands because that is not what the market wants. Also I found that I did not make as much money once he was in a size 4 and now that he is a size 5 it will not be worth my effort.

    Gross about playing in flood water. I looked at the pictures and am amazed the damage a lot of rain can cause. Maybe your packages are hanging out with my BirchBox and Popsugar Box 🙁

    1. Jennifer

      One of my PopSugars just left CA today!!!!!!! It’s scheduled to arrive on the 22nd. LOL!!

  5. Heather Elya

    Arthur (on Pbs), is much more entertaining than Thomas. 😉

    1. Jennifer

      Ha! The only one I really don’t like is Daniel Tiger. He bugs me.

  6. either cherry pick your clothes for thredup or put them out in a pile at the yardsale THEN donate

    my kids have slept in the same room since E was around 2.5. it just gets CRAZIER! They are usually in the top bunk and A reads him a story by nightlight after lights out. i go “yell” after a while but yeah, as long as they’re in bed and being cute, i’m not caring!

    1. Jennifer

      There are just SO many. Ahh, I am overwhelmed with them.

      1. i’m betting that you buy enough clothes so they are all pretty nice that if you just stick them all in a thredup bag except for anything that is visibly stained/torn it will be fine.

  7. Kristin

    I’m looking forward to going home, showing in non-sulfur water, going to my mailbox tomorrow to pick up a pile of packages. That is depending on the flood issues, we may go to Summerset too.
    IPSY is at home and my Ireland box should be there. We have two dance competitions for Se on Sat & Sun then Monday we drive Sandy to Toronto because her year is up.
    Talk soon

    I think I’m always playing the garbage game, and I always win! Meaning I never take the garbage out. I have much higher garbage tolerance than anyone else that lives with me!

    We have been having insane flash floods in my region too, and it is really disgusting! One of the nearby college towns got hit really bad, and there were so many people out in tubes and swimming. Nasty!

    1. Jennifer

      I always lose. Mainly because I am home the most I think. But I do hate losing.

  9. Caitlin

    My husband and I totally play the garbage game. Unfortunately for me he’s winning, and I find myself taking out the trash way more than I want to.

    If it makes you feel any better I spend lots of my day watching Baby Genius lol. And you should totally try to sell the boys’ clothes. Maybe send in the better ones to ThreadUp?

    I worked at Starbucks over 10 years ago and used to hate the pumpkin spice latte. Oddly, the last 2 years (yes I’ve been a Starbucks addict for at least 15 years, and working there in high school/college only fueled the addiction lol)…but I love the pumpkin spice latte now. Guess my taste changed 🙂 maybe try it again in a few years and you may change your mind.

    1. Jennifer

      If they ever get rid of the salted caramel I may have to convert…

      And I lost the garbage game today.

  10. Lia

    I’m totally playing the dishwasher game with my fianc?. I don’t know why but I would seriously rather hand wash dishes because the dishwasher is full than unload it. Same with laundry- I’ll wash and fold it but like hell I’m putting it away.

    1. Jennifer

      O.M.G. My husband doesn’t put stuff in the dishwasher because “he doesn’t know what I’m doing with it”. In other words, he fears finding the dishwasher clean and if he opens it then he will have to unload it. AHHHHHHHHH

      1. lia

        OMG! That seriously made me snort. “I don’t know what you’re doing with it.” That is such a great excuse. “Oh, I didn’t wipe up that spill because I don’t know what you’re doing with it.” “I didn’t help you take out the groceries from the car because I don’t know what you’re doing with it.” I’m totally using that one. My fiance will be so confused.

        1. Jennifer

          I don’t even ask him anymore because I can’t even take him telling me that!!!

  11. Candace

    Ha! The garbage game…I’m glad I’m not the only that plays this game. Except I’m pretty sure he has no clue we are playing so technically I’m playing the game by myself. Sigh. I really think he is oblivious or possibly allergic to the trash can!

    1. Jennifer

      Umm, totally the same. My husband has no idea we play this. And I am sad to report I lost today. ;(

      1. Candace

        No worries, you’ll get another chance to win the game in a few days lol!

        1. Jennifer

          I hope so!

  12. Allison

    My friend and I played in the neighborhood streets after a flood when I was a kid. It was so much fun and we survived. We didn’t care—-We were kids! 🙂

    Save the watch until the next time he starts eyeing your washi tape stash…then whip it out for a little misdirection :O)

    1. Jennifer

      This is an excellent idea!

  14. Stacey

    Hahaha the garbage game… I definitely won the other day. My opponent/husband was MAD too- somehow its MY fault that it was too full?! LOL

  15. Angela

    I order planner supplies on Etsy from China & Japan all the time because they have the cutest stuff!

    1. Jennifer

      What are your favorite shops???

  16. Mallory B

    My husband and I play the garbage game all the time. And also the “dog ripped apart his toy, now who’s going to pick up the stuffing” game!

    1. Jennifer

      We play this one too. He just walks right by it…

  17. Amy

    I always lose the garbage game because it seriously drives me INSANE. Here’s a part 2 of the garbage game though–(and I lose this one too)….take the garbage out of the cans (we have 2 built ins) and put them by the sliding glass door. See how long it takes someone to take them to the garbage cans. Guess who hates seeing them there…ME. My husband and my kids would walk by and over those bags all day long. I hate being a loser!

    1. Jennifer

      I so feel your pain. I have so many pet peeves and my husband just does not mind!

  18. Debi B.

    The Pumpkin Spice is coming out in September…Dani and I stopped and that’s what I wanted… I will still want till Seotember, unless I just get the one at the gas station….
