Why are the throw pillows and blankets AWLAYS on the floor????? I picked up the brown pillow about 10 minutes ago, guess where it is? And one of the blue ones is on the floor too. Why do I bother???

When is the first day of school again?

don't know about you, but kids go back in a month and 3 days here :D

Of course considering I don't have kids, I'm actually NOT looking forward to them going back. Once school starts traffic gets far worse!

I actually have gotten rid of most of the throw pillows. DS thought that the name meant that you were permitted, nay expected, to throw them. Yeah. Great idea. Let me replace that broken lamp for you. Lovely.

yeah throw and pillow, who came up with that brilliant marketing strategy? :rolleyes:

My kid go back on August 29th. I think I need to start a countdown.....

and yes the pillows are on the floor yet again!!!! ERGH!!!!!:headache:

Let's see.. it's 1 month and 1 day here!! Woo hoo!!!
Love my kids...but I need them to go back to school.. just for that reason... pillows on the floor, blankets on the floor, food all over (what YOU can't find the trash can?! ~ It's been in the same place for 10 years!) Dishes on the counter.. wow, if you turn around 180 degrees... you'll find the SINK!

Don't have throw pillows (I threw them out!:lmao: ), but the blankets drive be batty! Seems like I'm the only one in this house that knows how to fold them and put them away when I'm done using them!:sad2:

Let's see...dishes? Yep, only they are placed on the counter right BESIDE the sink...trash? Yep, I'm the only one that seems to know where the trashcan is. DH is the biggest culprit of that (at least in the main living areas). The man makes a sandwich and can't put anything back in the fridge or put his cheese wrappers in the trash (which is on his way to the table or the living room, btw)!

My kids go back to school on August 14th!!!

are you sure you don't live here???? DH will yell at the kids for not picking something up even after he has stepped over it 10 times. DS5 is currently using the couch as a trampoline, I really need to put him in gymnastics.....

Has my DH been visiting you? My DH does the same thing.. he does the same thing.. and I just laugh at him.. like the breath you wasted yelling could have been used to just resolve the problem yourself LIKE I have to do! EERR

August 21st here.

My youngest will take the pillows, make a fort around the air vent, take the covers and put them over it all. It kinda balloons up and voila, instant igloo.

My oldest will take the pillows and throw them around and then dive on them "Take cover men, incoming!"

Dishes are on the counter, next to the sink. Glasses are left all over. Crumbs and left over wrappers are everywhere. And there are only THREE of them. I would hate to see this house if I had more. Takes me forever to find all the stuff that goes in the trash. Oh, and socks. Let's talk about socks. How can you walk around with one sock on and one sock off? It would drive me batty. Well it does, when I can't match them during laundry.

Ladies, I am so with you. And to make it more fun, we recently added hamsters to the mix. The goal was to make the kids work together to take care of the little rats - results have been mixed. But I don't know why they can clean the cage, vaccuum their rooms and walk over the little bits of hamster bedding they left from their room to the door! Yeesh - you are already cleaning - just FINISH!!!

BernardandMissBianca
07-17-2007, 02:39 PM
currently looking at the pile of socks on the stairs. At least they made it into the basket, but can they take them upstairs as they walk past. It will take an act of congress to get that to happen.

This WDW trip is sounding better and better. Let them wallow in their filth for a few days without me. LOL

07-17-2007, 02:46 PM
LOL! One sock on one sock off.. yep, they must know my youngest son!!!
Or better yet.. running outside w/ only socks NO shoes...and than when I complain.. I get the look like "what do you mean the bottom of my socks are dirty"..

I also enjoy... "it wasn't me" when I ask who left the toliet seat up... or who left the empty glass in the middle of the floor...

Yes, our Princess is a chatty one, isn't she?

07-17-2007, 02:48 PM
That's 5 times, 5 times I have said to put the pillows back. 5x that they have been put back on the couch. I think I will sew them to the arms of the couch......

PrincessNancy96
07-17-2007, 02:49 PM
What? you have out talked me... see what happens when the kids are home, projects to finish.. and next week won't be any better because it is fair week..and I think my DD has volunteered to work like 2 events a day! Starting tomorrow w/ the queen contest! LOL

I'm working on the club scrapbook now..but came upstairs to get a snack and vent... LOL Vent about what? whatever you all get me going on today!

So it's a boy thing? That explains it. I love my socks on. I only take them off to sleep, shower and swim.

OMG! AWM my DH will love to know that.. he thought I was the only one in the world who did that!!! He laughs because I very seldom wear sandals in the summer.. tennies and socks!

BernardandMissBianca
07-17-2007, 03:01 PM
I'll do you one better. Yesterday DS6 was headed to my dads when he saw a deer in the field so I grab the camera, as I head down further into the field to catch a shot of it as she comes past me, DS5 decides to chase it, through the poison ivy, no shoes, no socks. Not my best mommy moment.

I washed his legs down twice with rubbing alcohol, so far so good. But my hands hurt like the dickens because I still have open wounds on my hands from my mystery rash. Again, not a good mommy moment. I probably would have made a sailor blush if I had said anything out loud.

Ugh! That's a boy for you.. always willing to chase a wild animal and doesn't care what he goes through to get it... I hope your hands are feeling a little better today.... As mommies are pains never go away, do they?

I'd be ok if they didn't itch so bad. They are dry and trying to heal so they itch like you wouldn't believe. I did glop some lotion on a while ago but I think I need to do it again.

07-17-2007, 04:00 PM
Stupid throw pillows! I hate them and the chenille blanket that I replace on the couch arm 20 times a day. Mine play a game called "ice cream sundae" where they stack on the pillows up and sit on them until they fall over. At least they are creative, right?

Buffy, I hope your rash is better soon!

AlexWyattMommy
07-17-2007, 06:22 PM
Why is that?
We who are home with the children everyday find ways to cook, clean, do laundry, general straighten up stuff and still be with the kids BUT when the hubbies are home, they can't?

aroyer
07-17-2007, 06:23 PM
Ahh, the joys of motherhood. Mine cant find the laundry basket. I thought I had fixed that when I put the basket UNDER THEIR NOSE... nope. Proven wrong once again.

Have I mentioned the 2 year old DS????? Had a complete fit today when I came home, crying, no holding back fit. Why? Because he wanted something that his sister had been playing with for 45 minutes but hadnt given any notice or care until I walked in the door. :scared:

Okay, I do have to back up a bit here a say that while DH has his faults (trash, blankets, etc...), I do have to give him some credit because he does help me around the house. But it has to be when he wants to, not just if I nag him, KWIM? There have been plenty of nights when he cooked dinner (although I usually clean up after him). He has also helped me clean the house and can do it as well as I. And he does a lot with our children. The good thing about it all is that he KNOWS and does appreciate what I do here. He tells others that I have a tougher job than he does. He really isn't bad, he just does some things to irritate the crap out of me! But, then again, I have some faults of my own that irritates him too!;)

BernardandMissBianca
07-17-2007, 06:41 PM
Oh and this one I love!!! DH is in the same room as the kids, I'm upstairs, outside, in the bathroom, where ever. They call me at the top of their lungs til they find me to get them something to eat, drink, or to tattle. UM hello your father is right there!!!!

send him my way!!!! Teach my DH to help more. Yes he works and yes he is on the road a lot, but when he wants to eat he does, I have 5 people to feed, dress, wash, etc....when he wants to go out for a beer with friends he can, I get 1 day a month to go to Lisa's to scrap and I get no less than 3 phone calls.
Dishes forget it, I cook I clean, he cooks, I still clean.

Boy, I can so relate. I tell you, living in a house full of males just sucks sometimes. :lmao:
My kids think the whole house is a garbage can. I'm so tired of every piece of trash ending up on the floor. They can't even put their dirty dishes in the kitchen. Yes, lets walk right past dad to go cry to mom or tattle on one another.

And, I only have another 3 weeks until school starts, school starts August 9 here. :banana: I told a friend yesterday that the first day of school we were going to go to a Mexican restaurant, sit in there all day and drink margaritas. :rotfl2:

But I had a mommy/wife meltdown and told them I was going on strike and they could wallow in the junk... needless to say, they all ran every direction each cleaning a room..

:rotfl: :confused3 I had to ask myself that yesterday when we got a FLORIDA downpour in Indiana! MY gosh.. our major road is a 2 lane state highway and they were driving like they had lost their dam* minds! Then some fool decided in the downpour that he was going to make a left hand turn across traffic when YOU coldn't see your hand in front of ya! Then wondered why he nearly got hit! IDIOT!

I have the opposite problem. It starts raining (not hard, can still see quite well in front of me) and people slam on their brakes as if a deer just ran in front of them. It's annoying. I could understand if it started snowing but seriously, it rains almost every day this time of year

PrincessNancy96
07-18-2007, 09:53 AM

This so happens in Tennessee, too! Yes, it's rain. Yes, we need rain, but chances are this is probably a short-lasting shower. It's like people feel the need to wave at each individual rain drop and so they completely stop--with no warning!! It drives me nuts!
