{I'm Dead Meat!}

My husband is going to kill me for posting this picture, but I just couldn't resist. 
We did a little babysitting for some friends of ours on Saturday.  We sent their bigger little kids out to the pool with our big big kids and Seth stayed in {his own choice} with Brent to watch a movie.  It wasn't long before the movie watching turned into a little snooze.  It's been a long time since I've seen this in my home.  I kind of miss it.  Just a little.

I have been laughing to myself all weekend about my Housekeeping list being featured on Pinterest, You are Drunk.  If those people only knew how NOT crazy I am about cleaning.  I get it.  If you just see that list, without reading the blog post, without knowing anything about the person who wrote it, it seems insane.  This comment was my favorite:

"Something tells me that weekend family time is actually a horrific cycle of mom ripping her hair out because little junior dropped a piece of popcorn in between the couch seats and forgot to pick it up, or little Susie left her box of crayons out, or dad came home and took his socks off and left them on the floor for a couple of hours. Mommie Dearest anyone? NO WIRE HANGERS!!! D:"

{Hee hee.}  If those people only knew that you could find an entire meal's worth of Lucky Charms {my kids like to eat them dry -- whatever} and an entire box of crayons underneath my couch cushions most days!  When I see comments like that on Pinterest I just want to scream, "READ THE POST PEOPLE!", but then I would really come off insane.  But tell me, really, am I the only one who gets black dog hair on their white base boards and sweeps over them with the vacuum attachment once a month or so?  Maybe I'm crazier than I thought.  I do loathe wire hangers. And my half of the master bedroom closet is organized by color and then by length within each color.  All on wood hangers.  So maybe they're not far off the mark.. . .

{Brent's side is all wonky and none of his hangers are wood -- or even match -- and it doesn't bother me one bit, for the record.  Live and let live, I say.}   

I didn't get the scripture post-its done today.  Sorry.  You'll get a double dose of those next week.  I'll be back  this week with a fun vintage scale that I found at Goodwill and made over and some other cool projects. 
Hope your weekend was great!


  1. i've never hear of the Pinterest, are you drunk but the comment seems harsh. i luv reading your blog and you do NOT come off that way at all. and sister - everytime i vacuum i vacuum my baseboards AND chair rails, lol!

  2. Awwww, thanks. I had never heard of that site either, I just found through my Google Analytics that several people had come to my blog from there so I went over to check it out. It's a little mean, but kind of funny. Good to know I have fellow baseboard and chair rail cleaners out there!

  3. It's list like yours that free us up to have the fun time with the kids! Wiping down walls and baseboards totally needs done, especially with little ones leaving handprints all over everything!

    The site is pretty funny, like the knitted sweater that goes over your head and laptop to keep you from getting distracted. Your post should not have made it on there at all. They truly did NOT read your post!

    Love your blog!

    1. Thanks for taking the time to leave a nice comment! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has to clean "so much". I was starting to get a little irritated with my kids that they make messes that NOBODY ELSE IN THE WORLD has to deal with. Sheesh. I have to take the criticism with a grain of salt. They don't know my life and I don't know theirs. Live and let live.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
