This Mess is a Place!

"If you can't make it better, you can laugh at it." Erma Bombeck

I just found something on the rug behind the recliner that looks like it had been an orange M&M once.

After cleaning that up, I found something that looks like dried Diet Coke on the wall.

I'm wondering just what goes on in this house the twenty minutes a day that I'm not here. Then again, I would probably be better off not knowing.

  1. Just so you know I have really enjoyed your blog! I was cleaning the house last night as my husband sat over on the neighbors patio drinking a beer. After almost 2 hours I came outside in disgust and sat down. The neighbors all have cleaning ladies and said I should hire it out. I said, "in my dreams." My husband says "it gives her something to do." They asked him, what do you do? And he said, " I watch TV." ....At least he's HONEST! You are not alone sister : )

  2. Your orange M&M reminds me of the time we were getting rid of some recliners. We were taking them apart and I found a piece of Easter candy from at least 5-7 years before. How did I know? Well, my kids hate that particular brand of candy and I can't even remember the last time I purchased it. Probably when they were 3 and 4. Just goes to show you are not alone. Look at it this way, at least you didn't lift a cushion and find poop. (Believe it or not, I know people that have).
