Joe you made me laugh! I can just see a ticked off dad hauling crap out the door! LOL!!!!
Mandy yours too, "threw up on it!" HAHAHA!!! I busted a gut! E has a WHITE rug in her room with purple butterflies on it. STUPID IDEA! It's stained with paint, has glitter that likes migrate around the house and refuses to be vacuumed, and some mysterious marks that I'll never know how they got there.... I scrubbed it the other day, it's white again... For the moment. I'll have to look into that manure colored carpet!!!
Lockwood, I get that. "Whaaaaaa? MEEEeeeeee???" Yes, YOU! Last night DH came running in the house FREAKING out and stripped off and tossed his dirty clothes ON THE COUCH! He had seed ticks on his Wee Wee, then I had to suck up my OUTRAGE as I'm thinking about seed ticks and poison Ivy juice and dirt on the couch and go grab the tape! Ha HA!! I made him pay.... That stuff does get the ticks off, and some skin.
DB, my dream in life is to have a cleaning lady (you weren't talking about your wife were you? LOL!). And a cook, and a gardner, and a stable/farm guy....
If my DH was like you, well I'd probably be a widow of "unfortunate circumstances".
I lived in Japan when I was a kid and it was the same there, I don't remember having to switch out in every room but I remember my downstairs neighbor Heidi. Her feet were bound, she was the most INCREDIBLE woman. She spoiled me rotten, I can remember sitting at her feet looking at them when she made me money necklaces. Pretty cool!
EWWWWW, all your stories made my TOES curl. LOL!
