BLOOMIN' HEADACHE



In better news, two kitchen shelves arrive soon. All of the decluttering, demo work and building of new rooms was driven by having a permanent place to shoot real videos for me to share recipes. It's been a long haul with plenty of setbacks.

For anyone who declutters and feels like it's a big job that takes forever. To anyone who gets discouraged over starts and stops. I promise you, the end-result is worth it.

Keep going.

Keep going.

Keep going.

Keep going.

    1. Thanks. Not really the onion but the over-eating of a salty spicy BLOOMIN' ONION, before bed. Lesson learned.

  5. I think an 8 pound onion would even do The Grinch in and onions are his favourite. :-p

    Hope you are feeling better. xo

  7. A bloomin' onion sounds kind of good but maybe not before bedtime.

    Thanks for the declutter encouragement. I've delved into this job a little more intensely of late and I've made some progress thankfully. One might know it to look, but I have. I've been finding some cool old stuff and reviving a lot of memories. Now I've got to keep going. I don't think the job ever really ends.

    1. Yes! Lesson learned. No more little piggy right before bed.

      Excellent on the progress that you've made. Here's to more steps. I promise you though, the job does end. Or, it can if you so wish. I've long decluttered not to need to do it again. But ... we did move right into demo and rebuilding so we have messes from that. But the decluttering can for sure, come to an end.

  9. I don't like onions, and if they do this to you, that's one more reason to avoid them...I hope you feel better quickly!

    1. That's my bad for not explaining better. I was a little piggy and it was too much salt before bed. Lesson learned. I won't do it again.

    1. Hey Joey. Decluttering long done finished back in 2016 but the demo and redoing of rooms, adding a floor, changing the kitchen ... that's taken a long time.

      Are you really going to keep all her stuff? Everything? Yow.

  15. Everyone is wishing you were feeling better, and I'm over here thinking, "You made your own blooming onion?!?!" You're probably feeling much better by the time you read this, so carry on. I am also very impressed with your decluttering, and would love to do that here (just need to get someone else on board ;) ) -Jenn

    1. Hi Jenn. All better. No more little piggy before bed. Lesson learned.

      Yes, no kidding about the BLOOMIN' ONION. Some bits were burnt and some were excellent. But zero heavy oil taste.

      Thanks on the decluttering. Getting all that done last year was a huge help to us. Now still still rebuilding.

      Tell me more about needing to get someone else on board with you. I hear this a lot from folks. What's the biggest challenge you face within that problem? If you feel up to sharing.

  16. Decluttering and re-doing is HARD WORK. When we had this house repainted, the hardest work was getting READY for it.
    I sure hope you feel much better.

    1. I agree. It does end. Or, it did for my last year. And finally seeing small ends to remodeling. Thanks for hitting the youtube, IG and blogger. Weekend going nicely. Still no arrival of shelves. Have you had a chance to look into Dropbox?

    1. Hey Girl. Finishing decluttering last year was the best. Yes, head all cleared up. No more Miss Piggy before bed. How goes you? Have you been able to hit the beach a few more times?

    1. Hi Mary. The burnt bits not so much but the good bits were better than Outback. The air fryer has a clean taste to it, with little to no oil. Thanks for asking.

  20. Hope you enjoyed the Bloomin Onion if you had to suffer for it. Crashing headaches are not fun, I am experienced with them.

    1. I was a little piggy and the salt before bed doesn't work well. Lesson learned. Yes, it was good. The burny bits no good but the good parts were better than Outback. Very clean taste with a nice crunch.

      Sorry you've had the headaches too. Is it too much salt for you or something else?

    2. Nope migraines. worse when I was younger, not so bad these days.

    3. No fun. Tim deals with those. Less though lately. Knock on wood.

  22. That's a pretty big onion :)

    Glad to read you're feeling better now. Sometimes overindulgence is worth it; sometimes you just have to figure out IF it's worth it and where the line is :)
