Too funny!

Sleeping Mommy's vigil is in hiatus

We've been sick. I have too much to do. I'll return to this again in the future. For now, just know that my husbands crap is still laying around. You can count on it.

Day 19 and Day 20

This one will have to do for yesterday and today. It looked like this last night before bed and still this morning when I got up while he slept away. I don't expect it to change before tonight. I'm losing hope.

Day 17

No. Actually these DON'T belong here.

Seriously getting irritated.

My patience is wearing thin.

I'm entering one of the hormonal phases of my cycle. He seriously needs to take care of this crap because my head is probably going to explode over this sometime in the next couple of days. The fuse has been lit...and it's not all that long.

Picking up where we left off: Day 14

My husband has returned from his trip and has been home two and a half days. That's long enough to regroup and pick things up. He has not done so. He walked in the door and promptly put all his crap from the trip on the kitchen counter. ALL of the kitchen counter.

All of this needs to go to his office aka our bedroom.

At least he's consistent

Count on hold

My Husband is leaving me.


Nah, he's just leaving for a few days. He gets to go to Vegas and have fun and do professional things and I'm stuck with the kids. So. The daily count of his persistant piles of crap will be put on hold until his return.

It's just not fair to post when he's not here to actually do something to clean up the mess, you know?

Day 10 and 11

I failed to get pictures taken last night, however it remained just as it was on Day 9. I'm sure you will take my word for that, right? We were out of town at my mother's celebrating my youngest child's 3rd birthday. After we got back and put the kids to bed (an ordeal in itself) I just didn't have the time or energy to remember to post.

However, when I got up this morning (it was my day to sleep in!) I found there has been SOME progress made.

Better, ignore the dishes in the sink, I will have them done within the hour

a new mess left over from last night

About the same

It's been dangling there for about a month

Day 6

We have a basket for these

This drives me effing crazy

I should put it in a box on the fire pile

Day 5--12 hours late

If you visited within the last 24 hours you probably found the site gone all wonky. Sorry for the layout glitch. I was trying something and pasted some code into the wrong place and then forgot to remove it before closing down. Then time got away from me and I never could get back to post last night's pictures. That's what I get for spending time with the Husband instead of nagging him (via this blog) about his crap.

So without further ado, Day 5 (yesterday) 12 hours late.

Please take note of the belt along the top of the cookbooks--that isn't where it goes

What makes me mad is I have several organizers for him to put this stuff into

Day 1

Today I'm beginning a vigil to clear my kitchen counter tops of my husband's crap. I've had this blog for a very long time and only used it sporadically. It has merely been a log of my frustrations with my husband's clutter and stacks when I feel them boiling up. But no more.

Keep in mind that most of this has been stacking up over a period of months with my asking nicely every week or so that he PLEASE sort through the junk and put it all away. "Nice" never gets me anywhere.

Starting today I will post pictures every day of his crap for as long as there are pictures to post. At this point I do not plan on posting anything other than pictures and a tally of the days running in the title. But we will see how long I can hold my silence, won't we?

Almost there...

I really wish I had a photo of the Garage before. It was BAD.

Here it is now. This is about three weeks after the initial cleaning and organization. Most days the kids can play in here and on the driveway with their bikes, etc.

Now if only I could get the man to clean off this counter in the kitchen. It's almost all his stuff. Stuff he needs to sort through and throw away or file or pay.

My only consolation is that it's not all of the cabinets and when you walk in the door from the garage it isn't the first thing you see.

You can see it from the living room doorway though. See? This was taken yesterday.

So that's a problem. I'll be gone all day tomorrow. It would be a great time for Snoring Daddy to take care of this, wouldn't it?

Hey, a girl can dream can't she?
