Confession time, with Mama M.


I've gotta come clean about something. You see...there's something I didn't tell you.

I told myself I was doing it for your own good...that you didn't have anything to gain by me telling you. So, I just kept it to myself.

But, there's been a turn of events...so, I feel I must share.

*Great big, hearty sigh*...

A couple of weeks ago (oh, I can hardly say it)...a while back (ugh, this is killing me)...well, okay...you see...(I've just gotta spill it)...

*cough*Iwasallcaughtuponlaundry*cough*

*Looks around innocently*...what?

Don't hate...'cuz there's more to the story.

Yeah...so, I was all caught up on laundry. In my smugness...in my patting myself on the back...I didn't say anything, 'cuz I'd heard of this chick named Karma, and I heard she's a b*tch. I didn't want Karma coming after me, so I just went about my merry little business...tossing in a load here, folding a load there, putting things away as they were ready.

I'll admit...I gloated. It may have been to myself...but I did.

Turns out tho...that Karma is a b*tch even if you gloat privately. Even if you don't boast to the world and "sing it loud for all to hear" (name that movie)...Karma...she'll getcha every time.

I am currently drowing in a sea of unwashed clothes...stranded in a desert of clean, unfolded clothes...and I see no end in sight.

Help.

  1. LOL That happens to me, too! I'll actually get caught up so I then think I don't have to do laundry every day and then laundry mountain appears.

  2. I am in the same boat. Today I am tackling my laundry issue because if I don't the laundry will come alive and take over our house.

  3. I think I see a couple kids hiding in there. Wait is that Elfie? Is that a SUV in there? What in the world woman

  4. Haha! Be glad you don't live over here! The washers and dryers are so itty bitty and take forever. You can get about 3 towels in a load and it takes 2-3 times longer to wash! I am not kidding! If I get backed up I have to go to the laundry mat on base or I will never catch up! GOOD LUCK!!!

  5. Movie is definitely Elf!

    Good luck with the laundry...I can barely keep up with my own.

  6. First of all, Elf :)

    And secondly, WOW. I sympathize. I only have three people's laundry (and the Mister has work uniforms that I don't even HAVE to wash), and I still find myself swimming in seas of laundry sometimes. Keep on truckin' Mama ;)

  7. I didn't really understand this post. It was talking about a foreign and strange concept that I had trouble grasping... I can't relate at all and think - THINK - you might be talking about a fantasy world where clothes do not spilleth over into all rooms of the house... I'm sure it's somewhere between Narnia and wherever the Hobbits live because I've never been there and doubt very much I ever will.

  8. I am sorry, could you explain this "folded and put away" concept to me?

  9. I feel your pain. I remember those days. Now it's just my hubby and I.......easy peasy on the laundry side of things.

  11. THAT'S what it is! I have GOT to quit bragging! :-) Dang laundry!

  12. haha! that looks JUST like my living room! Okay, so it did before my husband folded half of it and took it upstairs. Now it's all stacked in my bedroom like a lego city.

    But shhh!

  15. I'm so very, very sorry. I, too, was caught up, just a few weeks ago. No longer. I'm drowning.

  18. I loathe laundry, so I'm almost never caught up! I'm just impressed that you ever in time managed to be caught up at all with that big family of yours! :)

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!


Crock-Pot Fajitas

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
