Bills

Nothing but blood, guts and loose teeth around here. The tooth fairy has had 3 visits in under a week and my daughter is going to be a gummy wonder when she's bridesmaid for my brother's wedding.

I am having a momentous week. Getting so much done. Except housework LOL.

DH turned on the hob and when it started to smoke, he sent me this glare that translated into, 'why the hell haven't you cleaned the cooker?'

Hmm. He reassures me he didn't marry me for my housewifely skills--but that look doesn't back it up?

Maybe I should add it to his bill?

  1. I say the same thing to my hubby, but you're right, the look doesn't help. I can't write if the house is too dirty so I try and keep it clean. Well, as clean as a person can keep it with three kids underfoot.

  2. I let my house go until I can't stand it anymore, then spend two hours cleaning it (luckily, it's just an apartment so it doesn't take TOO long).

  3. I think for me it is the guilt. I do clean but I also have a book contracted and 2 little kids.

    If I spent an hour a day on housework it would be undercontrol, but then with meal clear up and laundry and toy clear up, I probably already do!!

    Anyway I can't concentrate if it is messy either, so today it is sweeping the floor at the very least--I just weeded 4 flowerbeds and am so hot I could melt. Maybe I'll give it a while!!

  5. Hey! I've thought about donating an hour's worth of my time to the housework too. Doesn't happen though. Our house only seems to get a good clean when we know we have company coming and DH *knows* better than to show up with uninvited guests. Unless, of course, he wants to be horrifically embarrassed. ;)

  6. I know the feeling! I try and do a general clean-up, and have to sweep everyday as we have hardwood floors that show dustballs and grit, but on a Base people drop over any ole time, so you have to be prepared. :) I learned that quick enough in April! My kids are away today and tomorrow and all next week, so I can write and the house will go to pot!! Yay!

  7. Toni, thanks for switching my blog back to rose! We lost my hit meter though. Bravenet is where you get free hit meters right? :)

  8. I don't mind cleaning, unless it's the shower or refrigerator. I hate the shower because I'm not that tall and I have to stand on the edge to reach the top of the far side. And the refrigerator for some reason is just icky to clean. As fr guilt *sigh* I am a saty-at-home mom so if my house isn't spotless I feel guilty.

  9. Sorry Laurie--yes bravenet.

    Brandy--I hate the shower too. I need a chair in there!! And the fridge. I realize I have to do a BIG clean starting the end of next week so I didn't do much inside today--maybe I'll do the floors tomorrow :)

    I did do two years worth of tax forms!!!

  10. At least it didn't catch fire, Toni, which mine did. Spent aaaages cleaning up the fire extinguisher mess afterwards .. along with arguing about who had spilled whatever it was that had caught alight :)
