Confessions of a Crappy Housewife

Well hello there. Let me wipe the dust and cat hair off your seat. It's been so long since I've had anything to say that didn't begin and end with zzz. The last few years have been a bleary-eyed blur with me hardly meeting the requirements of a functioning adult. Chronic fatigue has had me slacking off in every department. Mount Clothesmore reached new heights and the dust bunnies have been joined by cat-hair tumbleweed. I am disappointed to say that the cat does not ride the Roomba around as YouTube would have me expect. The dog barks the whole time it is on and so it has been relegated to a corner office with no view.

I have the most awesome collection of Norwex cleaning products. If only I had the energy to use them more regularly! Granted, we have moved twice in the past 3 years so they have seen some action before taking up residence in the oft-forgotten cleaning caddy. Thank goodness I have a husband who helps clean and cook. ♥  The child (who is almost grown up now) has an autoimmune disease which leaves her hands cracked and bleeding. She has, however, learned to do laundry when a desperate lack of underwear becomes imminent. So I've got that going for me, which is nice. My sister has moved in with us in a scratch-my-back-and-I'll-scratch-yours arrangement. This means we have clean dishes to eat from, although drinkware is hard to come by since I hoard bedtime water glasses on my nightstand. :)


So I'm working on getting my health back. I have a wonderful family and some great friends. I still have a good job, despite my absenteeism and tardiness. I have a lovely house, for which I'm grateful. If only I could keep it in order but I guess you pick your battles. I'm siding with the Roomba, which is currently losing to a small dog.
