Preventable Diseases (have nothing to do with this post)

You may or may not have noticed that my blogging has not been as prolific lately as it has been in the past. I blame lots of things for this sad lack of blogging.

1: My Damn Kids: You'd think it was my job to take care of them or something!? Elijah demands ridiculous things like food or help getting dressed. What's up with that! Last night I had to make dinner, clean it up and then actually watch a movie with them. I mean, HELLO! It's disturbing how much pressure I'm under from these mini-beings.

2: My Jobs: I love making warm winter accessories for people and I love writing, but do I really have to do things like write invoices, edit, take photos and advertise!? So Much Work. If only I could make enough money to pay something to take care of the kids and advertise for my business. Have you seen my new items?! There is still time to make your custom order for Christmas! Check out Ultra Cute Crochet and help a brother out.

Already have the crocheting thing in the bag? Check out my day job at Crochet Spot for patterns, tutorials and fun crochet related posts!

3: Taking Care of the House/Laundry: Yesterday I washed, dried, folded and put away 7 loads of laundry. 7 LOADS! I also scrubbed the tub, toilet and sink in the bathroom, washed four loads of dishes (no, I don't have a dishwasher...and it's not from lack of funds...there's literally no room for one in our kitchen), cleaned Max and Elijah's room and dusted in the front room. Today I hope to ignore all the house work so tomorrow it will be such a mess that I will cry from the overwhelming nature of it all.

Ok, that's it. I guess it's not as much as I previously thought AND is a bit more sad rather than funny.


4: This Recent Illness: I guess I shouldn't complain because I've only had this cold since Sunday night. BUT FOR GOD'S SAKE! My eyes are constantly watering, my throat aches, I can't breathe out of my nose and worst of all; I CAN'T TASTE ANYTHING. Eating makes me feel better and this illness has taken away my only joy. My only joy ever in the history of the world. Eating. Well, fuck that, I'm going to go stuff my face anyways.

I'll leave you with this photo of me so you can share in some of my wretched pain:

You're still mighty cute.

nova said...

Agreed. Still cute.

So busy, too!

Ally said...

ugh, we're buying a house that has no room for a dishwasher. i've lived w/out one for almost 10 years. it sucks and we don't even have kids. i feel for you. hope you feel better!

Vic said...

Get better soon, Erin!! I've got all kinds of laundry here for you, and I'm almost out of socks.

Missy said...

Yep! Kids are a bummer! Feel better soon!

liz woodbury said...

feel better, miss erin. no dishwasher here, either.

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

I was sick for two weeks and all I tasted of Thanksgiving dinner was salt. Ugh!

I hope your cold goes away really quick and that a band of merry elves comes to do your laundry.

That last think might be pushing it, but I do hope you feel better soon!

Miss Yvonne said...

You look cuter sick than I do well. Damn it.

If I looked like that when I was sick, I'd be quite pleased. I look like the creature from the black lagoon or that plant from Little Shop of Horrors.

Hope you feel better, Er bear. And I might not have the beginnings of a basketball team, but I know alllll about cleaning like that all day. Sigh. You have my sympathy.

Hi Erin, I'm sorry I haven't commented in so long, I feel like I've been a bad friend. Reading over your list of chores made me remember when my kids were little, holy cow thank g*d they're grown up. I can't imagine doing all of that now, and I don't know how you have the energy to do it either. And you did all of that while nursing a cold? Man, I'm such a total slacker compared to you.
I hope you feel better soon, but I think I'll always be a slacker.

You are SUPER cute! That's what I kept thinking as I was reading your post and noticing your pics, and look here... others are posting the same thing! Must be nice people following you around talking about how cute you are all the time.

Our kitchen is tiny too, but I had to just make room for a dishwasher because I'm super lazy! So I sacrificed cabinet space, luckily we have built-ins in the dining room so I had a place to stick things. Our last house had a teeny tiny dishwasher, like an apartment of RV sized one. Oh and there are those dish washing drawers, but they are waaay overpriced. Wow, I sure did get hung up on the dishwasher thing, huh? I just really feel your pain on that one.
