My Quirky Self

I LOVE GARBAGE DAY!!!  I am not sure anyone really likes it as much as I do.  See, Ben and I lived in an Apartment for 4 years and when you had garbage you took it out to a dumpster and it was gone-for good.  Now, in a house it doesn't work that way.  It sits.  In the garage.  Being gross.  And I don't like it.

Also, I have discovered "yard waste removal".  This is another wonderful thing.  You bag up your yard waste, put it out at the road on Garbage Day and they take it.  It's wonderful.  

Last week was the first week I tried out the Yard Waste Removal.  I didn't know what they would take or not take, so I just took our whole "brush pile" and put in a garbage can and put other various things in paper yard bags.

Then I stalked my front window to see if they would take it.

Here is our ton of stuff, waiting for our wonderful picker-up-ers.
LOOK!  SEE!!!  Yard waste-GONE.  Never to be seen or heard from again!  And they took everything I put out, ha ha!  
And then the garbage man comes and he also rescues me from our yucky garbage! 
Awe...the small things that amuse me.

No. I swear.  I do not have too much time on my hands.

I can not stand garbage and I also love it when the garbage just disappears when I put it out on garbage day.

I love seeing the garbage disapear, what I hate is when those animals get into it in the night and it is all over the yard
