Bachelor Town

April 30th, 2010

While I was off discovering California's theme parks, playing in places like Disney's Fantasyland and Legoland's Explore Village, my home was being turned into Bachelor Town.


I came home to find worms growing in the bottom of the dog's water bowl, and one fish bowl as fuzzy as a tennis ball due to the algae. A guppy had died and was not taken out. The baby guppy bowl had a third of the water left and they were swimming in algae and their own filth. The bed sheets had not been changed, and they were dotted with blood stains from Claus' various wounds. (See Claus' fall blog.)

Oh, Husband. Looks like he had a pretty good vacation, too.

    OH goodness gracious!!!!!!! Diane ever heard the say they don't move until you do? That looks like the case here. lol. I go through that everytime I come home from work! ugh!

    SittingInLimbo, I haven't heard that, but it kinda applies, yeah?! I was annoyed but amused when I returned. This was the longest I've ever been away since we had Olivia. And because I had the kid, it was a total vacation for him. He just let it ALL go! I forgot to mention that it was two men living here since our babysitter lives with us. Total bachelor pad. You know, when he went skiing in Feb, I spent half a day cleaning, cooking, and laundering, the day of HIS return.

    At least he took back the empty beer keg. LOL

    I am surprised he didn't go into max cleanup mode before you got home. Hmmm, they both need remedial training. I don't think I ever did that in 31 years of marriage, let my wife come home to a dirty house that is. (hmmm was I afraid of 'Kimchee temper?' Maybe.)
