Things I can't do...

I can't sweep the floor because the ladies are sleeping and it would surely wake them.

I can't do laundry because the pile I need is in Zofia's room and she can hear floorboards creak like a mofo.

I can't clear the cobwebs that have formed because I fear the spiders that may be lurking in their depths.

I can't write a better blog post today because some little jerkoff at the store called me "ma'am" and I'm weak and stressed.

Speaking of "weak and stressed" my mom use to work for a large grocery company, and part of her job was reviewing applications and calling people in for interviews. Our long standing favorite was from a gentleman who left his previous job because (and I quote) "my baby mama left me and I was weak and stressed." Hence my use of the term.

Things I can do today:

Make excuses for keeping a dirty house.

Post things like this from The Oatmeal. Click on it. It expresses my fear of spiders in the best way possible.

Your "weak and stressed" comment made me laugh. It sounds like my students. ;)

Ah, The Oatmeal!

I used to have this quote up on my fridge that said something along the lines of - the house is dirty and will always be dirty but my kids won't be this small forever so instead of cleaning I'm spending time with them. (It was way more eloquent than that, but you get the idea!)

And I hear ya about spiders. Lydia LOVES bugs so she's our resident bug catcher.

Here from Biscuit. I love that application note. And reasons for keeping a slightly messy house.

I totally want to steal this: "my baby mama left me and I was weak and stressed".

Um, this is fantastic.

(C. wants to know if your mom interviewed him and if he got the job.)

Update: The job applicant was called in for an interview. (my mom said "of course I called him!")But unfortunately he failed his drug screen.

Hahaha! Love it.
