domestic failure

Epic Fail ~ September 2017 edition

You know how I’m always saying I need to get my act together? No? Well, I do. I say it all the time. And do you know why I say it all the time? Because my act is so far from together it’s absurd. Let me give you this ridiculous example. I was enjoying some…

Way Back Wednesday – About a Snake

Welcome To My Bachelor Pad

I’m not sure when I lost control over my house. Perhaps it was when the hormonal balance within these walls shifted. Considering my own lack of estrogen and the absence of another female in the house on a consistent basis, the testosterone can be almost palpable at times. I know I’m partially to blame. Last…

Pre-Clean Pickup

I should be cleaning my house. Picking up the insane clutter that is threatening to overwhelm. It’s particularly bad right now due to several factors. I have too much stuff and I don’t know what to do with it. I want to be organized. I want to be organized really bad. But I’m not. We’ve…

NoThanks – Day Sixteen

Today I’m thankful for reserves. As in underwear reserves. You know. That pair you don’t really like, but you keep for emergencies such as when you have run out of clean bloomers. What I refer to as auxiliary choners. I was glad to have such a backup this morning so I didn’t have to wear…

Toilet Paper and Laundry

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this breaking news… Never was my failure as a domestic more apparent than today. It’s stinkin’ hot here right now and I had no capris to wear this morning. I could have worn Bermudas but I didn’t actually think that one through in the shower and,…

They’re Home Again

The kids have a four day weekend. I’m not sure why the school does this, but they start on the Monday before Labor Day, go for four days and get four days off. Maybe it’s the district’s way of easing them into school. You may find this hard to believe after I rejoiced and sang…

My Week In Arkansas, Part One

While I’m not even close to being a linear thinker, I do believe stories are best when started at the beginning. So here it goes. Wednesday, April 23: Todd and I stopped at the local Wawa on our way to the Philadelphia airport for gas and coffee. In that order. Gas for the car. Coffee…

Neat Freak in Disguise

TODDY’S HOME!! TODDY’S HOME!!! It was a long week-and-a-half and we’re so glad it’s over!! Since he’s been either in a nice hotel or at his brother and sister-in-law’s, and therefore has become used to cleanliness, I decided he should come home to a nice, clean room and bathroom. (I’m pretty good at redirecting responsibility…
