I'm crabby today.  I don't know why, maybe it's PMS but it's SO not PMS.  I have legitimate reasons to be grouchy, like.....um......erm....well, I've got my reasons! I just can't think of any of them right now, that's all.  Maybe it's the fact that the laundry that I sorted, washed and folded this weekend is still sitting on the coffee table waiting for certain other people to put it away.  I don't think I should have to, so I'm leaving it sit there, as...well, you know, an experiment of sorts.  Yeah, that's it, it's an experiment! I want to see how long it takes before someone (hubby, kids, the imaginary maid, Santa Claus, June Cleaver, the cat, anyone, anyone, Bueller?) puts it away.  I'm getting sick of looking at it, though, so I think I'll be nagging at the kids to get their stuff, and hauling the rest upstairs myself.  I could certainly use the exercise.

Or maybe it's because after cooking soup for dinner tonight, I looked in the cabinet and had no clean bowls.  So, I reached in the dishwasher for bowls and spoons (none of those in the drawer), and discovered that it had never been ran.  Great.  Even better, I had already used one of the dirty spoons from the dishwasher while cooking the soup, thinking it was clean.  I'll bet Martha Stewart's never done that before.  SO not a "good thing". We did eat the contaminated soup and we are just fine.  So far. Fingers crossed.   Obviously, my experiment with the dirty dishes has not had a successful outcome.

                                                           "You did what?! That's horrifying!"
Add to that some work issues, family issues, broken air conditioning, and feeling like I can't keep up with anything despite my best intentions, and you've got one, irritable, imperfect mom.  Anywho....I've got lots to be thankful for, great family, food to eat, clean clothes to wear, yada, yada, yada.  I'll be fine by next week.  It's not PMS!


  1. hang in there, the crappy days are going around. I have had a few of them recently myself.

    I like your idea about the experiment although I gotta tell ya, I have already tried that experiment and it failed miserably.

    Oh, and as for the dishwasher thing, I had a similar issue, except mine had been run.... at least I thought it had. It turned on... but only rinsed everything. I have no idea how long it had been broken, because I usually turn it on before leaving on my errands. I just happened to be home one day when the bell chimed 12 minutes after I had started it. So, that means that I had been using dirty dishes for I don't know how long. That's a really disgusting thing to think about. Thankfully, we all survived without any bouts of diarrhea, lol. So, one spoon??? Eh, not to worry.

  2. if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck..its PMS!

    im so feeling you tho...Sunday my cat craped on a the floor, my husband steps in it and not knowing this puts on his shorts, then spends the next 1/2 hour trying to figure out where the smell is coming from. Then freaks out when he finds out its him...blames me for the whole dang thing. Why am I telling you all this? Cause I am not aloud to blog anything about him that makes him look like an ass...LOL and he was being such an ass ...I had to tell someone..well other then my mom and BFF...already told them.
    Wonder if your coffee table is clear yet? :)

  3. You're funny even when you're crabby, girl! Wouldn't it be nice if June Cleaver would come and keep house for a little while? Everything was so effortless with her!

    I did the exact same thing with the dishwasher this week---Needed a clean bowl and reached to get one, realizing that I had never run it.

    I don't have the problem you don't have, either. OK, yeah I do :-) Hope you're feeling better soon!

  4. I'm so glad the dishwasher situation happens at other people's houses, too!
    Michelle, I'm LOLing about your husband! This is part of the reason why no one in my family knows I blog-otherwise, I'd never have anything to write about.

  5. Ohhh I hear ya!! I get so mad at hubby waiting for him to put away his laundry... And the dirty laundry! It never gets to the hamper... Until 2 weeks later when he decides he needs clean clothes, he picks up everything on the floor and crams it in the hamper. Awesome.

  6. Hey Bethany,

    I have left you an award on my blog. I love reading your posts, keep em coming.


  7. Miss'n your posts!! I hope you are "FEEL'N" Better {wink, wink}!!

    Monica @ Organized Chaos!!

  8. So, it's next week... are you feeling better?

    I'm sending some sympathy and empathy your way after the crap-tabluous week I had last week, too. This week seems much better already. Hey, no one's pooped on my floor in two days, that's gotta be good for something, right?

  9. Hope you're feeling better. There's just crab in the air lately. I've been feeling snarky and crabby, too.


I love comments! Thanks for reading my post!
