Full Disclosure

I have a tendency to paint things as rosy, mainly because if I focus on the things that aren't so great, I get bogged down very easily.  And honestly, in the long run, I really don't think it will matter if Jack can eat off the kitchen floor...I still don't want him to do it!

So...in the interest of full disclosure, lest you start to believe that we really do just cuddle and giggle while making crafts all day long, I present my home...

This is my laundry room...

This is my closet...more laundry.  (In my defense, a lot of this actually is still not unpacked from our recent move, but that is still ridiculous).
This is my kitchen, with a full sink of dirty dishes.
This is my bed, unmade.
So there you have it.

Ain't no stinkin' Stepford wife.

UPDATE: The icing on the cake?  I just got a phone call from a not so friendly receptionist that I missed a dentist appointment at 10:30.   Sigh.

Also, I was surprised to see a very similar post today from Lydia at Small Town Simplicity on the same general subject! You should check out what she has to say about authenticity if you get the chance!

  1. Hey, that sink is not full. I emptied it last night! And the closet... well, that is pretty much my fault.

  5. You are my TWIN. Seriously. The laundry gets me every time. Also, this morning I left my car keys in Abe's car, so he drove off to work with them, leaving me stranded at home (where I missed a meeting). Argh!

  12. Oh boy, your place looks amazing compared to mine! At least your clothes are on the floor in the closet. We are jam packed into our little place and the clothes are all over the bedroom floor.

  13. ha, that's the norm around here too. The husband did the dishes today, well, he does them most days. And the laundry. Wow, that makes me sound like a horrible wife!

  14. I'm so glad I'm not the only one whose bed remains unmade some days. ;)

  15. You are living your life, not living the life of someone else. I love that comment you made about not wanting Jack to eat off of the kitchen floor. I think that I had better remind myself that there is no way a guest is going to eat off of my kitchen floor. And I certainly don't want them to anyways. Chill out, and live life, that's how it should be.
