I finally decided it was about time to.. take the time and transplant my plants into those pretty pots I told you I got at Ollies a few weeks ago here…I took a few photos to show you and Mr Lou was gettin a little jiggy with my cam on my phone too!..
I began simply, with the help of Mr. L.. We decided our plant needed a new home. He,
yes I call my plant a he an no I’m not crazy, well maybe a little bit was so beyond overgrown the roots were pushing the entire plant out of the pot! This is what he it looked like before. You can see how it’s falling out of the pot.
This is the huge root mess we found when Mr L. removed the plant from the pot.. It was a HUGE mess. I couldn’t get the roots apart. Mr. L. had to use a knife and scissors to cut through them.
Now some may be wondering why we would even bother dealing with this mess. Why not just throw it out and get a new plant? Simple right? Well, not in this case.. This plant is special to me for 2 reasons. The first, my mom made this plant for me from babies of hers about 18 years ago..Secondly, When I met my husband he didn’t have any plants in his new apartment so I told him I was going to bring him one and this, although it wasn’t the monster it is now, was the plant I brought which then became our plant. So, yes, I will cut roots with scissors and a knife, I will get dirt all over my kitchen table, floor and everything else and
yes, I will talk to him and assign this plant a gender..because, my mom made this plant for me with love…
he it is after a much needed diet in his it’s new home….Now I just have to pray he it doesn’t go into shock and die on us..
I also started cleaning out cabinets.. Today I started with the mystery mess under the kitchen sink and then moved onto the other scarey mystery mess under the sink in our master bathroom..
Under the kitchen sink before.. I couldn’t ever find anything, I always just threw everything under there and ended up with multiples of the same item because I thought I didn’t have anymore .
Here we are all cleaned out and categorized in baskets.. Do we really need all this junk in our lives? I have enough hair product under here for 10 heads.. but I am happy that now I can see what I actually do have and how much of it I really DONT need but being the beauty junky I am, I won’t part with it…
No, you do not have to call Hoarders!
