I skipped church this morning to sleep in and clean house. It’d be awesome if this was the ONLY thing I have to confess, but wait! There’s more! Apparently while I was asleep, my youngest kid decided to tear up a bunch of those popsicle things that start out looking like colored water and then you freeze them. My uncle gave them to us. Can I admit here how much that irritates me? I hate those things. :/ I mean, it was nice of him to think of us, but ugh.
So, I have this giant popsicle water mess on my couch. And my kitchen floor. So I was planning on how to clean this best when I realized my uncle (the same one that gave us the popsicle things) has my carpet and upholstery cleaner. Can I get it back from him to clean this mess? No, he’s using it, he says. So I go into my laundry room to see if I have enough rags to at least stem the mess until I can get my carpet and upholstery cleaner back. OMG. Cat boxes. Nasty. What in the world happened? Did the cats have a pooing party last night? Or have I just been neglecting them?
I go to find clothes to put on because, whatever, I’ll just rent a rug doctor. No clean underwear. My problem lately? Failure to plan. Finally, I find in the depths of my closet a pair of OLD granny panties from when I was pregnant. I throw them and some clothes on, and I’m heading out to rent a rug doctor and buy some new underwear. Yes, yes, I’ll do the laundry later too, but a girl needs some new drawers from time to time anyway.
Now, you’d think all that was my confession, but it’s not. My confession? Instead of being horrified by the state my household is in right now, I am extremely amused. And, I’m looking forward to the challenge of cleaning the horrid mess plus getting my regular cleaning done. I know, I’m crazy.
Alright, Home Eccers, it’s your turn to confess. What horrible messes have your house been in lately? Alternatively, what have you been amused about that you should have been horrified about?
