What's In My Air Vent

There is an air vent right behind my son's seat at the kitchen table.


Yup, that would be an Oatmeal Square piece of cereal....and a popcorn kernal.  Not only do I have to sweep my floor, but every few weeks I have to pull this air vent out and turn it upside down over the trash to empty it of food bits.  Yummy.

My Husband's Side of the Room

Why, oh why, does my hubby hate the hamper so much???


Luckily, you have to go all the way around our bed to see this.  So anyone who visits and takes a quick look into our room won't see the mess.  Lucky me...I get to see it!

Sometimes I think they all do it on purpose, just to make me crazy!


What's making you crazy these days?

What's Growing Out Of My Couch

My husband is a ball player.  Not professional or anything like that...but he played as a kid, and in college, and at 37 is still playing in an adult men's league.  

He also coaches my daughter's softball team.  I usually find baseballs, baseball hats, and scorebooks randomly placed all over the house.  The bats are normally kept in the garage.

Except when he goes all Tom Cruise-from A Few Good Men-like and starts carrying the bat around the house talking to himself because he's stressed about making coaching decisions for my daughters team.

When that happens, you get this...



 ...bats left every where!  It's growing out of my couch!

It could be worse...I could lift up the couch cushions and take a peek, but I think some things are better left unseen!

Who's Hiding At The Air And Space Museum

The boy didn't want me taking a picture of him at the Air and Space museum.  This is what I got instead...

What's Been Follwing Me

The black cloud that has been following me the past couple of weeks...


Bring back the sunshine!

What's In The Wagon?

My daughter pointed this out to me last night as we were getting out of the car.



I guess my husband thinks this is the new home for the hedge trimmer.  The best part was that my daughter thought it was a chainsaw.  That would have been even better.

This is the last week of school for my kiddos.  Hope it goes quickly and I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week!

What Was Left On My Deck

While lurking outside (I haven't been outside much because I had ankle surgery) I came across this...


My feral towel


To be clear, I'm talking about the towel that was left outside and not the chair that needs to go to chair heaven.  From the looks of it, the poor thing was left out all winter.  When you pick it up, it remains in that same exact shape...like cardboard.


Here's a picture of it's brother, who has been lovingly kept inside the home.




This isn't even a towel from my kitchen, which is 10 feet from my deck.  It a towel from my bathroom...that's upstairs...in my room.  I have no clue how this made it's way here, but I'd put money on minion involvement.


Have you come across any surprises while spring cleaning?

What's Lodged In My Freezer

Lodged in between the waffles and the freezer wall...



...is my leftover SweetFrog froyo.





I guess that empty space on the shelf just wasn't a cozy enough fit.  On the bright side, I think I'm in the running for white trash refrigerator of the year with my waffles, ice cream, and hot dogs.

What's In My Backyard

So I noticed this yesterday...



Those are the kids sledding discs.  Now I know that we had a really long winter and all, but they can probably be put away now that the dandelions are growing alongside them.


What's in your backyard?

Just Say No To Germs

My husband has the flu...or something like it.  He's been running fever for a couple of days now.  I asked my daughter last night to get her dad a cup of juice.  Afraid of the germs, this was how she went about it....



Should I be proud that she took precautions?  Or do I need to explain to her that a good hand washing would have been sufficient?

What's Not In My Pantry

This happens about every other week.  



Yup, there's nothing in there.

The kids change things up with the type of box that's empty.  They're keeping me on my toes!


How often does this happen to you?

What's Hiding In My Pantry

This weekend we cleaned and tidied our pantry.  Isn't it magical? 


After it was all done I went to take a picture and realized that there was something in there that didn't quite belong.  Did you catch it?

Paper Towel Fail

This is what I came down to yesterday morning...



I guess we need to be more specific with instructions.

  1. Remove old paper towel roll
  2. Replace with new paper towel roll

The minions are slacking.

How Many Cups Are On Your Kitchen Table?

I live with three other people...my husband, and my two children.  Yet, somehow, I woke up this morning with 10 assorted cups on my kichen table.




That's 2 mugs, 6 glasses, and 2 metal cups.

Don't see the second metal cup?  That's because it's hiding behind the napkins.



To be fair, the glass all the way on the left and the union jack mug are mine.  Who owns the rest?


What is your ratio of people you live with to cups on your table?

What Lives On Top Of My Dryer


This is what lives on top of my dryer.  I guess I should be thankful that I even have a dryer and crud to go on top of it.

I would venture to say that many people have change on top of their dryers (at least if you are lazy like me and just leave it there).  But do you have a D-ring?




Or Nerf darts?  Or perhaps a pencil, a picture hanger, or a Christmas lightbulb?  Screws, Legos, and buttons perhaps?  If you look hard enough you can even catch a glimpse of a Trivial Pursuit game card.


 
I bet you don't have a peg-leg pirate with a pistol in hand lying face down on a travel toothbrush.



Here he is after I stood him up for a closer look...




What's living on the top of your dryer?
