ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

The high you feel after a vacation

Is often quickly crushed by the actual height of your laundry pile.

Tell you what, the big low is when you see the water bill. Almost doubled since the bubba arrived and sicked over all her clothes...

Suzi said...

Forget the laundry....did you have a good time? Do tell!

Anne said...

Did you have a great trip? Was it worth all the laundry?

resplendentlife said...

That is so true!!You're all happy and relaxed and then reality sets in!
Anywhoo, hope you had a great trip! Can't wait to hear all about it!!!

Mrsbear said...

Fun's over. :(

Sara said...

Stupid reality.

I found that it was best to just leap in like it was a cold swimming pool and rip it off like an old band-aid. Well, you know what I mean.

Hopefully it was worth it!

laundry is dumb.

Rachel said...

Girl, you don't even know. I had post-vacation laundry for SIX.

And what the heck is Chuck doing all day long at home, if not your laundry? ;)

GreenJello said...

The question is whether or not the laundry pile was worth it.

Bev Sykes said...

Re your laundry pile, feh...it's chicken feed. Mine is twice as high (and there are only TWO of us!!!)

I hate laundry. I wish that shit would fold itself.

I have never had a high after vacation. It is gone the minute I leave the hotel for the last time. The trip back is one of life's most depressing times.

Two words: laundry fort!

Mary Anna said...

I swear that my laundry is doing dirty dances and reproducing!

Kris said...

This is so true. It's even worse when it's all wet and full of sand. Yick!

Kathy said...

I'm with blognut. I hate doing laundry so much, I would rather just buy new clothes. Thank God my husband does most of it, and the tradeoff is that I do the litter boxes and toilets. Sound horrid, but it's really an even trade.

Jeanne said...

I only do it once a week, so I have the laundry without the vacation!

FoN said...

My laundry basket always looks like that, vacation or not.
