What Happened To My House?

How is it than you can get the place clean and then 72 hours later it looks like a tsunami hit? Sometimes I miss being single and living in my bedroom. The rest of the house stayed immaculate so if I ever had company I could just shut my bedroom door. But I guess being surrounded by all this love is worth having a mildly unclean house.

It's kind of weird being home so much now. I'm not used to all the togetherness. I have a lot less time to myself. For almost our whole marriage I've worked an odd schedule. I hope we can survive seeing each other so much. I forgot if I'm going to be seeing Sweety more then that also means I'll get to be around more if he happens to be in a bad mood.

Oy's taxi arrived yesterday. She can hardly wait to go out on the town. Sweety almost had a kitten when he saw it. I was trying to point out the features on it that I liked so much (pockets on the sides for my things, leash on the inside so she doesn't sail out, little fur lined window so her chin doesn't get chafed when she's hanging out her head to see where she's going) but he wasn't interested. Even the fact that I got it on eBay for nickels did not comfort him. I love eBay.

We need a nap before tackling the house.

Men just don't appreciate the little things in life that make it easier.

Good luck with the new schedule. hope you don't wish you were back on nights!

I bet that's a big change. I try to end all relationships before they get to that point.

Kat - I'm trying to get her to learn to just sit back and enjoy the ride. It's slow going though.

Mollynormal - I don't think I'll ever go back to nights. That's a good schedule for someone who doesn't have a family. Maybe that's why it worked so well for me prior to marriage.

Armaedes - It would just be too much trouble to end it. I'd have to move. I hate moving. And I've grown rather fond of him.

do they make those for beagles.

Chickie said...

Bo Snagley - Do you have one for stupid Patsy? That would be a lot of dog to carry around. I wouldn't carry Tiny dog Oy if it were exhausting.

Mark doesn't understand why Prinny needs all her totes when she has a collar and a leash. STYLE! Duh, and hello? Her little legs get tired. Men just don't *GET* it.

Can you teach Stinky Dog to carry around the Tiny one?

What a great taxi for Oy! I love ebay, too, Chickie..it's as addictive as blogging, isn't it?
And there are some terrific buys, too!
Hope you can find a balance for your needed time-alone!

Usually I need a drink before tackling the house! :)

Chickie said...

Bekah - And it's just so much easier to carry a dog into the grocery store if she's in a sack.

Anne Arkham - I've been trying to figure out a way to do that. I'm thinking I need to make some kind of small saddle. I'll keep you posted.

OOLOTH - eBay is the source of many clicks of my mouse! Do you know how many dog shirts and sparkly collars you can find there? I'm sure my time will balance out in the end.

Bonanza Jellybean - But I don't know when to stop. I'd hate for Sweety and the boys to come home to me laying in a puddle of puke in a dirty house.

Bo Snagley - I just realized what you said in the above comment. And oh yes, you could get one beagle sized. I'm sure your dog would love it.

Tiny dog has more clothes than I do. Not really but she sure has a lot of stuff for a dog.

Chickie said...

MCB - She only has 3 shirts that fit her. And a coat. And a dress. And 2 collars. And a bunch of "necklaces". Oh, and the taxi. I guess she does have a lot of crap.
