Scrubba Dubba



Just thought I'd put that out there and get it out of the way. Happy Fall to All. Time to get the furnace cleaned because if this morning was any indication, it won't be long til we are turning the heat on in the mornings to take the chill off.

Gary did place 2nd in the tournament this weekend. Yeehaw - a few extra much needed dollars towards the Lake Erie trip. This coming weekend is the final round to make the State Team. Wish him well. As he says... a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

I'm so proud of myself this week, Three years ago I started a Christmas table runner with quilt foundation piecing. Yes, you read that right...3 years ago. When I start a project, we are talking a MAJOR fucking undertaking here. Lots of $$ goes into materials, I get all excited about doing it and then something happens. Nothing. I don't do it. Or I start it and don't finish it. How many of you have these types of 'projects' around the house? Well, I finished the quilt squares! All 10 of them. Now I need to get to a fabric store before I lose steam to buy the sashing and backing material. As Scarlet O'Hara would say.... "As God is my witness, my table will have this runner on it by Christmas!"

Another project that I plan to do that is near to my heart is in my upstairs bathroom. It's a gruesome, scary project but I'm going to lay it on the line here. My husband's piss is vile. It's corrosive and has super-human abilities. It has eaten through and dissolved the paint on the basebaord heat next to the toilet down to the bare metal. Could someone tell me who was the Einstein that thought it would be a great idea to put a metal object next to the toilet in the house with the Man of Most Caustic Pee? Let me guess.....um... maybe a MAN who thought his wife would love to scrub his piss off it, while on her hands and knees with her head stuck almost behind the toilet? When we built this house, I guess if we had the extra money, we should have added a few more square feet to the miniscule upstairs bathroom to allow for some more room to avoid this problem. However since it took every penny we had to make sure we had walls, a roof, a septic system, a well, 1st floor bathroom, a laundry room and a little electricity... we were lucky to get a 2nd bathroom at all. Anyway, I was going to post a picture of the gruesome scene of the attack of the Killer Piss but thought better of it. I didn't want to gross out the few readers I have, plus I'm embarrassed to admit something so utterly wretched is living in my home (but not for long!). I bought a steel brush, some primer and new Rustoleum paint to attack that piss pile with a vengeance. When I'm done, I am going to just DARE him to splash a little pee on it. Actually, I think that little cleaning chore ought to be his... don't you agree?

Oh yes he should have to do it. Men are such pigs, I hate to admit my bathroom is the same way..between my husband and 2 sons. And the odor is horrid!!! so your not alone... :0P Good luck getting it cleaned up..and Sheri God Bless you, i havent got the stomach to do that rotten job..

I definitely think it should be the man's job, but it isn't in my house either. The kids' bathroom is really bad as Nathan overshoots the toilet quite often. Lots of luck on the big jobs.

I make my husband clean the bathroom. I dont miss!! him and the boy do so he needs to take care of it. And I thought I was the only one with that problem I feel sooo good that I'm not alone. :)

If they can't hit the damned hole they should sit down....I can honestly say that I have never peed on the floor. I have unfinished projects too...mostly 'home improvement' type stuff. Like fixed sheet rock still unpainted. I even have a piece of mop board that's been missing for 20 years...it's only about 2 feet long and I have NO idea why we haven't replaced it. Go figure!!!!

Dave said...

Oh honey I would so make him do it he caused it so make him do it maybe next time he'll be more careful you know. I do the same thing with projects I get started and then something else comes up and I have to move to that. Good luck on getting it finished and I look forward to seeing pictures of the finished product. :-)

Hi Sheri!! I so comiserate regarding husband's piss wreeking! I can't stand to be in the same room with him when he pees, and he doesn't get that. He'll just waltz right in while I'm doing my hair and line himself up... Hellooooo! I'm right here and I was here first. Go find another bathroom! What is up with that????

Beth said...

We're all about renovations. We're not even to the halfway mark and winter's coming upon us. I hate that crap. The bathroom is done though.

Happy fall to you as well!

Hee Hee, your blog was cute today. Congratulations on your quilt squares, now I expect to see this runner on your table when I come down for family christmas! Ej must be a freak of nature, he seems to hit the toilet every time. He must have been trained really well. I don't know, I have never had to train a boy, so don't know all the details involved. Plus, we don't have any heat in the bathroom, so no metal baseboard to contend with. Good luck with that project!

Heather said...

Hand Gary the steal wool and paint - let him clean it up. I hate toilets. I have a 5 year old boy who doesn't aim well, so I feel your pain!!!!

I want to see pictures of the runner when it's done!!

Kim said...

Oh yes! YES! It is his job! Woman, have you lost your mind? If it can do that to metal, what do you think it will do to you? For God's sake! Ugh. Men!
