Accomplishment Makes Me Itch

Really, I’ve been scratching all day. Wish I could show you a finished garment for my trouble, but sadly the one thing I DIDN’T accomplish was sewing. I did, however, clean out the refrigerator:

Ta-da! You can identify the food!

After which, I texted the Hubs that he owed me hazard pay. We had chili in there from last month.

I also cleaned out the garage. You’re just going to have to take my word for it:

I promise, this is an improvement. It was worse before.

Then I cut out and prepped a skirt:

Ready to sew....

Unfortunately, I don’t know when I’ll be able to get around to that since the Hubs is leaving town again this week. In preparation for his demise — oops, I mean departure — I also finished an arseload of laundry:

It's clean, just not put away. I'm not a miracle worker.

At this point, June Cleaver would be sitting back with a gin and tonic and the knowledge of a job well done.

I’m not June Cleaver, and I WANT MY FRICKIN’ MEDAL. A scantily dressed hunk with a cleaning compulsion wouldn’t be a bad idea either. My birthday’s coming up, after all.

  1. You do deserve a shiny gold star. That’s a pretty long list of accomplishments AND will be followed with some single parent time.

  2. That is so much better than my garage looks. So bravo! And yes, a medal is deserved for sure. Clean refridgerator AND pile of laundry? Well, I don’t have a medal, but I’m thinking an award might be coming your way soon. Stay tuned . . . . 🙂

  3. Hahahah, I totally understand! You do deserve a medal!!!!

    (I don’t even want to venture into my sewing room — it’s where I’ve stashed the luggage from my recent Spain trip, plus all the debris from a conference I ran last weekend. A complete wreck. And let’s not talk about the laundry situation. Oi.)

    • I figure I’m doing well with the laundry when it’s clean. Folded and put away is a whole other story.

      My sewing room is currently the messiest room in the house. I keep pulling things out to reorganize them, then getting exasperated and shoving it all back into the stacks. Someday, I’ll have a storage system that works….just probably not today.

  4. I didn’t know we were supposed to clean the garage! whats wrong with shielding your eyes and sprinting for the car?
