I don't know why I am surprised

The day did not start off that bad. But it seemed to get progressively worse.

The first thing that went arry was when I tried to replace a light bulb in my living room. I reach up and start twisting, next think I know I have a blast of electricity and a flame in my face. Not only that, but the dang metal part broke off and remained in the socket....I also tripped the circuit breaker. And the lights still do not work.

Next I do my monthly carpet cleaning. I get it out of the closet, get the solution in the tank, turn her on and let her rip....Then this God awful wretched smell oozes from my machine. I notice the tank with the bad water is still in there from when I did this last month....My bad.

Now the whole freaking living room smells of the odor that is similar to a decomposing body..please don't ask.

Then my freshly bathed toddler spawn comes out of her bedroom eating her sisters peanut butter cup flavored lipgloss.....I take it away from her, as she is saying.."yum, dis good momma"

Then Meltdown spawn comes out with his new calendar...this kid loves getting calendars..And he had wrote everyone's birthday,s in it...I tell him I am so proud of him for remebering all our birthday,s..

I ask him, where is my birthday...He flips to May.....And he has it wrote on May 22...
I tell him, um..ahhh....My birthday is on the 2nd...Thank you..


I also bought one of those Mr. Clean Magic Eraser things....I have heard nothing but wonderful things about them..I was just dying to have one, I felt left out....I get home and I am desparelty trying to find something to clean with it....which should not be hard.

I used it...And I must say I was very disappointed...Tell me what is so special about this..I mean, I could of used my 99 cent sponges doing the same damn thing. I wasted 4 bucks on a sponge that does what my normal sponges do...Boy do I feel silly..








and the kicker........

Those poor kids .... looks like they had shown great restraint though...That is just too funny..Doesnt look like it bothered them one bit;)

Wenchy said...

JD's Rose said...

Ohh dear. I'd be going for something a little stronger than Kalua!

Look at it this way... it can only get better!

Peggy said...

Marel Lecone said...

Angel Girl said...

Cliff Morrow said...

Here's a tip for you. One of my boys works for the other. So the boss always gives him a calendar to write his hours down. And to make sure he doesn't forget, It's a Sports Illustraded Swimsuit Calendar. Something to think about for next year.
Kick off is at 7:00. Could you bring some of the shrimp dip with cream cheese and cocktail sauce??

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

wenchy, I think u may be on to something..

Kylz, I am in total agreement..what the hell was I thinking?

Marel, thans..and I just woke up and it is now Tuesday..LMAO

Angel girl, well...it is tommorw, lets hope this one goes better;)

Cliff, well now that might be a good idea for the hubby,,so he will remeber stuff, but I think it may gross out the 8 year old...He has star wars one, no girls..the way he and momma like it....Ok I will be there...but you said yesterday all I had to bring was my camrea...now tomorw beforee i leave you will have me brinign the ham to or something..geesh:)

Working Mom said...

Oh I love Kalua! I just got caught up on your posts. Sounds like you had a great Christmas! Pics look great!

Hope your day gets better!

CoolChic said...

Poor girl, I've had those days, I just bitch about it and K tries to help me. When we tried to shampoo our carpets it turned into needing a new kitchen faucet, 3 trips to the hardware store and then another trip to buy an extension so the shampooer would hook up to the new faucet, and then I had clean carpets.

About the magic eraser, I didn't find it was that great either, lucky for me I found a free sample online.

The Blog Whore said...

I did the same thing with my carpet steamer. That smell is horrible! Puke worthy, just wretched! LOL!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Mandi, I dunno...u havent met this guy..teehee..

Denise, you want to come ver and help me drink it???

Coolchic, oh man...now that is a fiasco..LMAO, you better come have a drink wiht us too..

Thersa, isnt that the worse smell ever..and think..that shit is in are carpets..oh crap!!:)

keesh said...

Wow, nice rough morning for you. the Eraser you are talking about is good for certain things though. Iike the refridgerator door handle, stove handle, etc..things like that....it scrubs harder than a regular sponge, so it comes in handy to have around, but you are right, it isn't a miracle sponge or anything...I have done the exact same thing with my shampooer. wouldn't it be easier to dump the water after each use, hell yeah, but why bother until it is full :). that is what I say :). Hang in there girl!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Kish, that is EXACTLY what I said too..why bother dumping it if it aint full...holy crap I learned my lesson:)....i did uese the ersaser on the fridge handle...but i still wasnt impressed..ya want mine?..I have 5 left..LMAO

Mike said...

Well...that'll teach ya to do monthly carpet shampoos huh?....lol

Anne said...

OMG lmao......I'm so sorry but the smell thing--my vacuum the other day? eeeeeew something must have crawled in and died-it DEFINITELY needed a new bag!

(((((((HUGS)))))))

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Mike,
Christina has learned a big lesson..I tell u what:)

Anne,
isnt it amazing how things from our own floors casue such stink if left alone in the vacume...dang..amazing....thanks for the hug,i need it:)

keesh said...

You have 5 eraser's left. holy cow! you will find something to use them on, you just wait :). My guess is your house doesn't get dirty enough to get the full affect ;). You seem to be on top of your game when it comes to the house stuff...

pack of 2 said...

Girl, that is a bad day. I can't imagine all that happening at once. When you said May 22, I thought that you and Shel shared a birthday (wouldn't that be wild). Take care and have some drinks!

momma of 2 said...

The magic eraser will take crayon off wallpaper without damaging wall paper... also took red crayon off the wood bedroom doors....

I would have gone back to bed after finding the carpet cleaning machine smelly....

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Kish, well i didnt buy 5...4 came in the box..plus I got a free doule action side one..LMAO..wont use them I am sure..

Angie, so now I know when shellys birthday is..now i just have to figure out yours:)..but mine is the 2nd, I hope I have that imprinted in my sons head now:)

Momma, I have heard they work good on crayon...but I wont be testing that therory unelss it should arise:)

pack of 2 said...

The magic sponge does work better than a real sponge...I'm just sayin!

Tell your spawn that my birthday is May 22 so he can just change it from mama to mama's friend Shelly's bday:)

Ewwww...I'll bet that water in the wet vac was stinky!!!

S

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Melis said...

I got lucky this year, and FIL couldn't afford to come up! bwwwaaaahahahahahaha But that's a post in itself! LOL Hope everything settles down... and you remember lil 'ol me in the drinking fest next time! *wink*
