Things I Learned Today / Friday, November 26, 2031

Things I learned today…

I washed 13 loads of laundry today. Thirt. Teen. We have clothes!!!

Cleaned my room today, too, and it’s so beautiful. Y’all know how it gets when your house really ain’t that bad, but you need to clean up a little clutter and hang up some clothes, then 5 hours, 2 garbage bags of crap, dusted blinds, and clean baseboards later your like…aaahhhh, now it’s clean.

Oh, and I traded several body parts for those accomplishments. Deceased are my back, legs, and feet.

I’m turning into a crotchety old man. I dreaded turning on this fireplace, because it’s about to run our dang gas bill up.

Speaking of old…is there an age you reach where you don’t give a flip about going outside in your gown or underwear? We apparently reached that age many moons ago, because we don’t give a single, solitary flip and haven’t got some time. Sorry not sorry, Neighbors, who saw me decorating around my front door this afternoon.

Y’all ever clean the kitchen and just wish everybody would starve the rest of the night so it doesn’t get messed up again?

Do y’all save all boxes around Christmas time “in case” and have this ridiculous box colossus pyramid of all shapes and sizes? Just me? Well, don’t come crying to me if you have to resort to taking the sleeves of crackers out and putting them on the bare pantry shelf so you can use that saltines box to wrap something.

I have 6 Christmas trees downstairs. Sshhh, don’t say anything. Just let it happen. Ssshhh.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
