I Don’t Know What to Title this Post.

by Chris on April 18, 2011

For the first time in a while, my husband had the weekend off. So you know what that means, don’t you? I got nothing done. No spray painting, no hot gluing, and no decorating. Sorry.

In an effort to save face, I did do a couple of things. Namely, laundry. See? I’ve got baskets to prove it.

So here’s a dilemma. I washed a couple loads of whites, and these are all the socks I washed for my kids.


And here’s what I washed for myself. If you refer back to exhibit A (otherwise known as the first photo), you’ll notice that there are only three baskets for a 4-basket family. I don’t get a basket. Who needs a basket for a sock?


In addition to some laundry, I did end up decorating for Easter. Yes, that’s it. Don’t hate.

And lest we forget, I’m always cleaning up after this guy. This is how I found him yesterday morning. He finally found a dog bigger than him…and sat on him.


Between parent/teacher conferences, baseball and softball practices, and an out-of-town husband, posts may be harder to come by this week. Anyone have any Calgon?

cute peek into your home. no calgon, but I always have chocolate. =]

Forget the Calgon…red wine is your friend. ;)

Don't you just hate un-productivity! It drives me crazy. I feel your pain. Dh was out of town and then we had the tornadoes. I did get outside today to do some storm clean up. I guess that was productive. Ugh.


P.s. My oldest son has that same stuffed dog. Funny to see your dog sleeping on it.

I vote for red wine too. And pizza nights. That's how I get through weeks without my husband. :)

I say enjoy a little break – and get take out. Survival 101!

And why do you seem to have PT conferences every other week? What is that school district doing to you!?!

Oh, I bought the same little chicks! Too cute. Couldn't pass them up!

Sometimes the weeks go like that. Hopefully things will change. Take time for a cup of tea – or a glass of wine.

Christina April 18, 2011 at 10:59 am

We all have weeks like that :) Love the picture of your dog!!

Sometimes we all need those weekends where we don't do anything. We had one of those weekends also and it was great.

Your dog is adorable and that photo of him is to funny :)

Happy Monday!

Since I know you don't like wine, I'm recommending a strong margarita :) :) :). Your Easter decorating rivals mine this year!

Oh…I know how you feel. Today I am cleaning this house and bathing the dog.
Love the Easter decor. All I have out is a basket on the foyer table.

Jenny April 18, 2011 at 3:11 pm

You are hilarious. Some weekends are like that, right? What's worse, knowing you're not going to get anything done, or having BIG plans that are derailed by unanticipated issues? In my case, that would be the wallpaper glue that refused to let go of my bathroom walls… ;-)

Kelli @ RTSM April 18, 2011 at 3:40 pm

I'm SUPER impressed you got all your laundry done! Mine is piled in the living room and still sitting in the dryer! Love the Easter decorations:)

Heather April 18, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Aha! I also tackled the laundry. And my husband was also around, so I had him fold it. That's the key.

Sometimes the best times are the unplanned free time that you can do whatever you want!

Love, love, LOVE the Easter decor. Made me laugh out loud because given my druthers, I would have something suspiciously similar. I also feel your pain regarding having the hubby home; sometimes you just have to enjoy your man.

Yvonne April 18, 2011 at 7:03 pm

hmmm…I have the deviled egg plate that goes with your cute little chick salt and pepper shakers….maybe they were separated at birth??

Rachelle April 18, 2011 at 7:14 pm

My husband came home this weekend too! It's been a month- Booooo! So I feel ya. I didn't do a DARN thing and that's okay. Besides eat out a lot and avoid everything else. ;)

Did you guys get hit with the snow? Excuse my language but this is B.S.

Happy Monday, Miss thang.

I just love your humor. It totally slays me. Especially when you post about Maximus. I swear I laugh everytime.

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick April 19, 2011 at 3:03 am

First of all, I love your dog. Secondly, at least you DO laundry. And finally…you ROCK. Love ya!!!

Jenny @ www.alongthelei.blogspot.com April 19, 2011 at 3:04 am

Take me away!! lol Love this…TOO FUNNY…I totally identify with this! I finally dedicated my time to doing my own laundry. WHAT WAS THAT FOR! I will never get the house done now! lol

Carmel @ Our Fifth House April 19, 2011 at 11:55 am

You got more done than I did this weekend! I washed towels and watched movies :) It's nice to do nothing sometimes! Your dog is adorable!

Lila April 19, 2011 at 5:40 pm

I can relate. I always have big plans for my Saturdays thinking my husband's help will be fabulous. Nope. I'm lucky if he helps with one thing!

This is such a fun post! I have to laugh about the socks! And love the picture of your puppy. So adorable! What would we do with out them? Thanks for your cute post and the smiles it brought!

I just stumbled on your blog. So glad I did! Glad to know that there is another mom in this world that doesn't need a sock basket. LOL
