Ever feel like you can’t keep up?

Like the house is crashing down around you?

Like the laundry is piled up and you’ll never get it done?

Like every time you clean one room the kids mess up another?

That’s been me for the last few weeks…

I’ve been doing my damnedest to make sure the kids have clean clothes and that Eric’s clothes are decent. I’ve been trying to keep all of Brooke’s therapy appointments and still make sure she has plenty of time for play time…

But taking care of Holly? Totally has been taking a backseat…

My eyebrows look like big furry caterpillars, and let’s not even mention poor Veronica….

My feet are so funky that surely the Vietnamese women at the nail salon will run and hide when I come in soon…

And my laundry? Not getting done…although luckily I have enough to get me through until I throw a pair of jeans and some undies in with the kid’s stuff…

But my gym clothes? I kept forgetting to wash…

And man, were they getting funky…

So I came up with a genius idea…




And I’ve gotta say…it was working like a charm…or so I thought…until I had this conversation with Jack…

Me: Guys, keep an eye of Brooke for a few minutes so I can take a shower

Jack: Mommy, why are you showering right now? Is it because you smell like a mushroom?

Which must explain why I’ve had plenty of space around me the last few classes…


  1. Hahahahahaha!!! I love the clever comparison to a mushroom. Why are kids so darn honest?

    Hon, you need a day off.

    You look a little angry in your picture.
    Now go straighten up that house. And for goodness sake, give Veronica’s closet a good spring cleaning!

    As I was throwing clothes in the dryer last night (family of 5), I thought– “I would totally pay someone to do our laundry.” Just the laundry. Twice a week. If I don’t stay on top of it DAILY (before work, after work), it piles up to my ears. My husband sucks at separating, washing, and folding— so I banned him from touching it at the beginning of our marriage.

    Go pluck your brows. Now.

  5. I hate laundry. It’s the devil. ManPal has been doing lately and I feel guilty. Might have to throw a load in later to make myself look more domesticated.

    Bahahaaa!! So funny. Just know your not alone in the stinky movement….if that’s any consolation to you at all.lol

  13. OMG…that is so funny. My husband has a tendency to not do his laundry because he is too busy so he uses Renuzit (just like febreze). I keep telling him that after a while, nothing helps the smell, you just have to wash it.
