Why I Cried Over Spilt Applesauce

I'd like to begin this post with the knowledge of my extreme hatred for sweeping and mopping my kitchen floor. Embarrassingly, it's a rare occasion I mop, I purposefully bought tile that would disguise a filthy floor. It takes much to long and when it's done I become a Nazi about keeping it clean. And there always happens to be a huge spill a day or two later completely trashing my newly clean floor which them forces me to breath in and out deeply while repeating to myself that my family's feelings are more important than my silly floor. Imagine my horror when I was unloading groceries and a huge jar of applesauce fell through an unknown hole in the grocery bag and shattered EVERYWHERE! Not only was my dirty floor trashed forcing a mop job but there was glass clear to my bedroom door and sliding glass door. Oh the anger! Now I had to sweep, mop, AND vacuum (another chore on my hate list). Well, after an hour of sweeping and mopping followed by vacuuming my floor twice, I was covered in sweat with a floor that sparkled.

You should have just called Chris home to vacum

Oh Heidi, I feel your pain! Back in the day I used to sweep and mop every Monday and it NEVER failed that someone would spill something incredibly sticky before Wednesday.

Now that you've mopped you should be good for another 6 months at least!

Oh I am cringing just at the picture. I hate mopping too and every day I ask myself why oh why did I get the wood laminate floor that shows EVERYTHING?! I'm glad I finally got to see your cute teeny tiny bump today :)

My sentiments exactly! I love that you posted this. Doesn't it happen to us all? It's good to know that someone else despises mopping and vacumming as much as I do!

Well at least you weren't throwing up also. If that would have been at my house I would have been sick to my stomach as well. I HATE applesauce.

WishTrish said...

Well done. I think sometimes I remember that my family's feelings are more important AFTER I hurt them. :( And hopefully you won't have to clean your floors for a while!

Ok so it's been a few months since I've looked at blogs, so I know i'm late but I just have to say CONGRATS on the baby news. You are just as cute as ever being prego! We still all need to get together!

HORRIBLE!!! i am not looking forward to tonight at all. we are supposed to go to the smiths tomorrow night (sad you guys arent coming) but i am so stinking tired, we might need to cut the night short! i saw the furniture at costco but it is way more than we want to spend right now. i am totally in love with it though. maybe when these 2 girls share a room we will get matching furniture.

I am crying over applesauce too....because it is time for you to update your blog!

Angie Whitman said...

Now I know why you cried.

YOUR PREGNANT!!!

How did I miss that post!? Duh.

Kim said...

I'm thinking it's about time to clean up that applesauce and move on to something else!

Great seeing you last night! When can we do a girls night?

Cyndi said...

Oh Heidi! I feel your pain. I truly hate to mop & sweep too. I avoid mopping like the plague!! It's like cleaning your windows. What's the point. It doesn't even last 5 seconds before there is hand prints all over the sliding glass door. Maybe we need to get cleaning ladies ;-)
