The Frustrations of a Dirty House

OK, so I should just be proud of myself that I have a healthy child who is always clean, dry and fed, and is a very happy baby.

But I just can't help it.

I am just green with envy at my friend, Robomaiden, who has that PLUS a clean house, and she cooks and bakes, and hosts one heck of a lunch on short notice with little gifts for us each to take home! Teach me, oh Robomaiden, I am your willing pupil!

I am right now caught up on the dishes in the kitchen, in the middle of doing the laundry for myself and Little M (Big M is on his own there), and attempting to get the family room into a state where I can vacuum. This means picking up all ofthe clutter so I can actually see more than 50% of the carpet.

I also have to get out the SpotBot because someone small and black and fuzzy broke into the cat treat drawer, ate the entire bag of kitty treats (which were really dental snacks, so she'll at least have pretty teeth) and then threw it all up in various places all over the carpeted areas.

Then she felt yucky so she crept upstairs to sleep, and threw up two more times up there. I'm starting to need to be reminded of the reasons I keep the cats...

So at least I'm making progress, slow as it may be, and one day I too may be able to host a fabulous lunch with our mommy friends and babies, but right now I have to go see why my little angel baby is making noises instead of sleeping.

Hugs and kisses to all my loyal followers! XOXO


  1. Hi Kassie. You are doing a great job as a mom.. I loved your post that was too funny but appreciate the compliments. I am glad we can get together and have such a good time.. I try to think of it get to the house when you can but the baby is the most important cause they change everyday and you dont want to miss a thing.. BIG HUGS.. Robomaiden & Gabriela

  2. You haven't seen our house lately. I think I've got one of the best wives in the world, but our daughter makes VERY sure now that mama has lots of EXTRA work to do. I try to keep her toys picked up, but she just likes to pull them out all over again.
