A dream come true

Ever since we said "I do" 25 years ago, I've been my husband's dream. At least that's what I like to tell myself.
As of today, though, another woman has come to live with us, and I think she may actually be his dream come true. Like me, she's a carrot-top. Her name is Deborah, like the wise woman who was an Israelite judge. For years my husband pleaded with me to allow her to come to our house. Finally, I consented, knowing how much it meant to him.

Meet Deborah, who just arrived:


Actually, she'll only be with us for two weeks. Then I'm kicking her out. And it'll be up to me to fulfill my husband's dreams again.


But for now, Deborah is living with us. She looks right at home, don't you think?

(In case you're wondering, Deborah's here to collect all the non-recyclable JUNK that has piled up in our closets, our attics, our cupboards, our garage. She's going to gain a lot of weight while she's here!)

Does having Deborah there mean you're cleaning and tossing stuff or does it mean there is construction going on?

Becca said...

I just have to say that you look much to young to have been married 25 years !! And, that dumpster must mean you either have serious cleaning or serious home improvements about to commence. Either way, yay(!) for you! *Becca*

I'm with Tanya...what's going on? Can you send Deborah here so I can toss some stuff in? ;) My interest is piqued!

Holly said...

Looks like something big is about to go down! Exciting!

Angie said...

This is just too funny!

Southern Lady said...

Now, you are going to do some serious cleaning. I think I need one of those. Carla

Beverly @ The Buzz said...

I can honestly say that is one thing my husband's never asked for! Wish he would--as long as he used it on his garage!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

That's funny. I think I need a Deborah, too.

Thats so cute. ;-) Deborah, Hi! haha. We just finished clearing our house out of JUNK! I am still in the process of clearing out our bedroom. :) But we had 2 skips worth!!! Of just junk, and rubbish. But we cleaned out our Courtyard, which we are going to pave, and also our Garage too. :) So it really helps! You will feel much lighter, and great when you get it all done. :) Too bad about the weight deborah will gain though! Bhahaha. ;-)
Have fun! :)

I can not believe that you have that much stuff hiding in your house that you have to have Deborah come and stay at your house for two weeks!

Are you sure you are not remodeling? LOL!

Paula said...

You must have something big going on at your house. Can't wait to hear all about it!

Dawn said...

oh my gosh! you are going to some serious tossing!! make sure you don't throw out one of the kids :) love you!

This just makes me LAUGH! I love it..think of what you will clear out. Deborah is a beauty!!

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

It takes a brave, brave woman to admit that she backed a bright orange dumpster up to her house not for renovations, not in preparation for a move, but just to clean out the junk. ;) You go, girl!

Heather said...

Good luck cleaning out stuff!

Gwen @ Gwenny Penny said...

Deborah is a lovely shade of orange. Hopefully she doesn't overstay her welcome. Good luck!
