Minor messes....gotta laugh sometimes

It is amazing how the "screw up" posts get more hits than the "good news" ones.  Does misery really love company????  Guess so.

It is raining here today.  While normally that wouldn't be a huge deal, it is a minor deal today.  G-man is taking all our laundry to the laundrymat.  I am still bummed that our washer decided to crap out, but it is what it is.  We have a fair amount of laundry....2 adults and 2 kids doesn't sound like that many people.  But all those shirts, pants, and undies add up.  The last time we did laundry was about 1.5 weeks ago.  So poor G-man has to drag all of this stuff through the rain.  And then home to dry it.  The rain will prevent us from using the laundry line.

Oh, and we have TOWELS.  Last night, Bossy took a shower and forgot to put the shower liner in the tub.  He tried to clean it up himself (see above TOWELS reference).  But alas, we needed to take out the wet vac to suck up all the water.  At least the floor is clean-ish now.

And I just looked outside....and G-man left all his windows open on his car (it was beautiful yesterday).  He will be THRILLED.

Good times!!!!

ETA:  I can't believe I forgot this!  Sunday night I heard a huge CRASH.  Ran upstairs, and the closet bars had ripped from the wall and were now on the floor.  Now, this is at least the 3rd time this has happened (don't go there....).  The back wall of the closet had huge chunks hanging off.  There were at least 8 spots that needed to be patched and repaired.  So once again, all of the closet contents (my clothes, G-man's and Bossy's) are in a pile in the alcove of our upstairs.

  1. ugh - that is just luck at its finest!

    you never realize how good you have it with simple things like a personal washing machine until it is gone!

  2. I miss our washer. The part hasn't come in yet, and the repair guy can't come back until 9/11. We are hoping that this will be our last laundrymat trip.

    1. I know it was raining further south over the weekend (per my MIL). So I guess it made its way up the coast.

      Maybe this will mean G-man will actually CLEAN his car???? HAHAHAHA

  4. Wait, what was that about the closet bars? Is there too much weight on them and they're caving in? It sure sounds like a long weekend. I leave my window down when it rains more often than I should, but I blame myself for being lazy and not checking the weather before I do... hope there's not a lot of damage to G-man's car, and he should totally clean it out!

    1. No...my stubborn husband didn't mount the screws in a stud. After it fell the first time, I asked him to do it. But no....apparently he knew better. Well, this time it really screwed up the wall.

      So guess who went to Home Depot today and bought longer screws that will go into the studs????

    2. Go Mysti, go~! You know what they say... if you want something done right (and you've already told The Man to do it), you gotta do it yourself.

    1. Oh Kim...there is another story from this weekend that isn't for public consumption. But of the two very close friends I shared with.....they were laughing so hard that tears were streaming.

      Glad I can make everyone feel like part of the club!!!!
