Mayans, housework and almost baby food

Well, it’s Monday and according the the internet the world did not end last week. I’m sure this is highly disappointing for some believers; I would hate to be one of those people who had put my entire wad of faith in that basket.

The whole world ending bit has me thinking of the Mayan calendar and how it ends in 2012. Has anyone stopped to think that maybe it ends because they ran out of space? Or maybe the crazy Mayan who was working on it finally up and died and no one was interested in finishing what appeared to be a pointless project?

And speaking of pointless projects, let’s talk about my house. I will be living in my house for 13 more days before we head out to spend June up in Washington. The day we get back the packers start boxing it up.

Someone, quick, give me a reason to clean because I can’t seem to find one.

Housework is like wood stacking. You stack an entire pile of wood, go to bed, and while you’re sleeping the wicked little trolls throw the wood all back into a pile so when you wake up you can stack it again. Every. Stupid. Day. Now throw on top of that the fact that you know in 13 days you’re going to have a bon fire and torch the pile, so why waste time stacking it?

The baby is screaming and while I would like to take time to discuss other important topics like bleach stains and homemade baby food, I must attend. Later gator.


  1. You are dead to me right now. No return call? And we need to start planning your “I Can’t Wait To Get Out of Here” party.

  2. I know how you feel! We have just over 2 weeks until we move to New Hampshire. I have zero desire to clean. Kinda hard to clean anyway with boxes stacked everywhere.

  3. Its totally pointless, I wouldn’t do it. Washington huh? That place sounds familiar…

  4. I had better freakin’ get invited to you “I can’t wait to get out of here” party.

    I can’t ever find motivation to clean, even when I’m not moving. And with all this rain? Forget it.

  5. Oh wonderful! I was going to call/email to find out when you were making your arrival and for how long. So glad to know it’s an entire month! 🙂

    I will see you soon. Loves.

  6. A clean house? What’s that? There are so many better ways to spend your “free” time.


  8. Well, one reason to clean a bit is that after being gone a month your house might smell a little bit funky. Of course, a can of air freshener will take care of that nicely. So party on!
