Have you ever started to do one simple thing and then bam, that leads to another and another and even another???? It’s so frustrating and yesterday I had one of those days. I was just wanting to clean out both of the refrigerators, simple get it done and yeah maybe sneak in a “happy nappy” during Oprah!!
Well I got busy and I always use the plastic bags from the store to dump the gross stuff that I find growing in my fridge, then put it in a garbage bag, no muss no fuss, wrong!! I dumped some soup, drained, old spaghetti and other stuff that’s so embarassing that I let it sit in the fridge that long. Picked up the bag and it had a hole in the bottom. The minute I picked up the bag, apparently too full to do anything but bust and bam, that crap gross stuff all over the place. When I say all over I mean it, the floor, counter, down the cupboards, the dishwasher and even the stove. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR So the simple means of cleaning out the fridge and making it look all shiny and new turned into a major cleaning chore. I had no choice but to do all the cupboards, the dishwasher with all the tiny lil buttons and spots that seem impossible to clean, the front of the stove. Even had to take the bottom drawer out from the stove and get under there. YCK ,that turned my simple job turned gross into another job. The dust and crap under the stove yck. I mean that so needed the biggest Mr Youck sticker in the world. So got that done, everything cleaned up and next was to mop the floor. Yeah I dropped the mop, dropped the cleaner all over, and knocked one of the bar stools over. So WHY did I even start cleaning out the fridge!! No happy nappy for me, nothing but cleaning up one thing after another. On the bright side of that my kitchen smells good, looks good and dang it I know it’s clean!!!! Almost makes me afraid to tackle the bathrooms today, what will go wrong in there I wonder!!!!
By the time I got all the mess cleaned up it was time to take mama on her potty break then get her to the counter for supper, which was a little late, but it got done. When I was finished eating, I was so ready for a nap but of course that doesn’t happen around here, with everyone home
Also I am having to put eye drops, only one drop per eye, in mama’s eyes and let me tell you, for a 91 yr old woman she has the strength of ten people. She fights me like you wouldn’t believe and I have the brusies to prove it. A lot of times Ron or one of the kids have to hold her arms down and she still squirms, wiggles her head etc. You just wouldn’t believe what it takes to put on lil drop in each eye!!! I think I get more down her cheek than anywhere. I actually had to get the prescription filled and it was supposed to last 6 weeks, but mmm alot gets wasted during our “battle of the drops.”
Hubby’s surgery is Thurs the 16th. No time yet, he has to call the day before great. But I have someone on stand by to come sit with mama if it’s mid morning or afternoon. I am hoping for 6am to be honest!!! He will be in a cast until the 27th then after that I don’t know. Physical therapy and I guess it all depends on how fast he heals. This will be the first time he has ever been put under and he is 60!!!!! Wow huh? I know he’s nervous but I keep telling him it will be fine. Surgery is supposed to last 45 min to an hour, then recovery and yep home. I tell you these hospitals just can’t kick people out fast enough, can they? I do know on thing for certain, mama, Ron and I will NOT be going shopping together. Hahaha picture it, Ron a full arm cast, mama in her wheelchair and me with my boot and limp. I laugh everytime I think of that, geeze no wonder this site is named “House of Mis-Fits.”
Ashley’s car is in the shop and should be good to go by mid week. She mailed in her ticket requesting a court date to dispute it. Next it’s to get notarized statement from the three witness’s so here’s hoping it all works out. I tell you around here never a dull moment and why one things lead to another and another and another, heck if I know. It keeps me going and it’s always a great feeling when I get past it and am ready to face the next challenge!!!!
