Nothing to Cry Over

This morning I had to refill the Qtip jar. I opened the child safety latch from the cabinet under the bathroom sink and got the box out. I filled the jar and put the box back in the cabinet. I pulled my hand out and... whack. I tipped a bottle of my hubby's cologne and it falls, falls, falls on to the tile floor and CRACK, breaks and spills it EVERYWHERE. I cleaned it up but the bathroom will smell like a hot sexy man for a week I think.

Later in the day I wash the towel I used to clean up the spill. And for kicks I throw in some of my dark wash with it because hey, I'm trying to be an environmentalist (snort) and not do a load of laundry with only one freaking towel. When the machine stops and beeps at me I go to put it in the dryer... and the load freaking smells like the cologne. !$%!#!! I do the wash again (ha, environmentalist) but this time use hot water, color safe bleach and scented fabric softener. The load is now drying. It still smells like cologne.

Earlier I put the clean dishes from the dishwasher away and discovered that I put away an entire pitcher of water on Sunday night. You know those pitchers I filled up with water when we had that freaking plumbing problem. It was the top shelf of a cabinet. I didn't even notice.

Tonight, about 30 minutes ago I decided to drink a glass of milk. I selected a plastic Gator cup, filled it 2/3 full and put the milk away. Then I reached for my cup and... whack, I knocked it, it falls and spills all over the counter and floor I already cleaned up today in anticipation of the guests staying at my house.

It was just spilled milk. I didn't cry... outwardly.

I must admit to a wry laugh at the end of this post. I'd go crazy at my laundry all smelling like man!

Welcome to the world of blogging :)

Sounds like just about every day in my house. I solved the problem by not inviting anyone over anymore.

I'm only halfway sorry to admit I'm laughing. Cuz I do crap like that ALL. THE. TIME.

I even knocked hubby's cologne out of the cabinet the other day - it didn't break, and I cleaned up the spill with tp (green shmeen) but not before my 2yo played in it. He smelt like one rad dude for the rest of the day - it was pretty much awesome.
