Too Much of a Good Thing is Bad or TMGTB

Dear Mullin Ponder Blog,

Okay. This looks bad.

The last blog on Mullin Ponder was posted more than a year ago. This is what happens when you do too much of a Good Thing – like mulling and pondering – for a year.

I still remain a huge fan of The Art of Mull and Ponder – or TAMP (I am also a big fan of abbreviations).  However, I obviously have a lot to learn about this wonderful art form.  The following list is an example of what happens to your world when A Good Thing Becomes Bad – or – AGTBB.  So without further ado and in no particular order – Tada!…..

  • No blogging for a year which leads to
  • letting down your faithful followers (yeah, right)
  • Undone laundry will make your home look like a hoarder’s paradise. (no offense to anyone who suffers from this dreadful malady)  This leads to
  • worrying that you might be A Hoarder.
  • Undone laundry will motivate your DS (Dear Spouse) to purchase a gazillion pairs of socks and underwear and T-shirts and dress shirts.  Total count of dress shirts in our home at present is 34. That’s right. THIRTY FOUR.
  • No food – unless you have a DS who likes to eat and will grocery shop and buy Very Bad Things such as loads of meat in bulk sizes (because it was on sale – cuh!) a ton of TP (emm – that would be toilet paper), unending supply of beer and wine (the wine is for me so this should be on a separate list of Not TOO Bad’s) very expensive extra large brown eggs (why?), a very particular kind of Thick Bacon Slices, No vegetables (except for corn) no fruit (except for a huge tomato and a whole bunch of bananas. And I def do not bake so, again – why?)
  • Sleeping upon sleeping
  • hibernation – which can lead to
  • weeping upon weeping and thoughts and feelings of
  • Not Good Enough
  • Guilt and good old shame
  • hiding in your bedroom when the doorbell rings because you are too embarrassed to let anyone see your messy house
  • buying loads of pajamas (again – this should probably be filed under Not TOO Bad’s – or NTBs)
  • feeling like a large Idaho potato
  • watching episodes of “My 600 Pound Life” (oh my goodness – poor souls) hoping this will motivate you to move your bloomin’ ar*&$%^!!  Words of wisdom from Eliza Doolittle which should not be scoffed at. (oh, good word – SCOFFED)

Right.  I don’t know about you but I am now exhausted as a result of being out of practice re this blogging thingy.  So here are some pictures which I hope will make your life complete.

    1. Oh thank you kind neighbour. Garden Lady will try to keep the mulling and pondering about the yard to a minimum this Summer. Like Nike, best attempt will be made to Just Do It!
