Adult Children, Night Stands, Random Pictures


I absolutely hate going into the garage to start my laundry to find clothes sitting in my washer.  My son started his laundry and forgot about it, leaving clothes in the machine.  So when I opened the door, a sour smell hit me in the face.  TANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Damn that boy, I’m going to have to smack him silly.  I put my laundry hamper down, restarted his load with all kinds of soap and Clorox 2.  So much for getting a head start on my laundry…….ADULT Children.  Next time, I think I’m going to open a green garbage bag and get rid of the clothes; that may resolve his forgetting clothes in the washer for days.

I sanded down the night stands and peeled out the crap in the drawers with a single edged razor.  After sanding, I wiped down each night stand and drawer in preparation of painting.  I stopped for the night, the temperatures were getting a little warm and later tonight it may rain.

A little Sparrow was learning to fly and decided to take a break and relax on our patio chair to enjoy the flowers, lol. 

 

The bees are enjoying the flowers too.


Outside one of my garden boxes Bulldog Man pointed out a large unique looking moth.  This one was the size on the palm of my hand.

    1. B,
      She is a silly little dog, with a mind of her own. Yes her boot came of this past Friday along with the stitches. She is walking and running fine, he little paw looks a little strange but it's not stopping her as you can tell with climbing up on some tires.

  2. I get so irritated with my wife over laundry. For almost 10 years the son and I had the perfect bachelor existence. I would do all the laundry at once, in cold water, none of this stupid sorting into colors stuff that means off colored items never get washed. It would then go into the dryer errrrr I mean the clothes chest where it would stay until we wore it. If it got wrinkled we just started the dryer...errr I mean clothes chest up and let the warm air do it's magic ironing on them.

    If for some reason I had more than one load to do at a time we had the clothes bench..... errr I mean couch, in the front walk in closet.... errrr I mean living room.

    Now she like washes stuff but there is always something missing because it was not blue day or some such stupid excuse. Then wastes all that time folding it and then screaming at us to put it away which honestly we don't see the need for in the first place.

    She threatens to stop doing laundry to which our response is "Yes Please".

    I don't know why she is so picky about the whole laundry thing. It really is a very simple no hassle activity if you just don't stress over it.

    1. PP,

      My son thinks just like you do, lol......
      You should see his room, it looks like hurricane Tank went through it. He would rather wash his whites with his colored clothing or jeans, when it comes out it's all gray and nasty. And since he's a welder by trade, you can't use liquid softner or dryer sheets on his clothing. If you do, he will start on fire while welding. Generally he does all of his laundry, this time the clothes were left in the washer and needed to be rewashed so Mom was nice enough to do them. Don't pick on your Sweet Wife, she just wants to make your clothes last longer. Give her a hug for me, :-)

  3. Oh, I hate it when the kids do that with laundry! I used to restart the washer, now I drop them on the floor and do my own. It generally only takes once or twice. The photo of the pup on the tire reminds me of a goat! LOL!

    1. Katie,

      Sometimes it takes longer than once or twice, especially with my son. He comes home late from welding all day and he's totally spent so his brain isn't thinking, lol. I think the floor is a great idea but then it will smell up the garage.

  4. I feel for you, the aggravation of having to do laundry to begin with, then to be held up. Good thing he has an understanding Momma!

    Glad to see the pup doing better.

    1. Izzy,

      Laundry is just another task on my agenda. Tank totally understands.

      Yes, Bug is so much better.

  5. I have to admit that I occasionally leave a load on too. And, it's usually towels which smell worse to me. Can't wait to see the finished tables, I love projects like that. And, thanks for the pictures of the pups especially.

  7. How well I know your laundry problems. I would leave their clothes to sour - but they would never even notice. What is it with kids? Those huge moths freak me out!

    1. Michaele,

      I'm not sure why kids do this. Is it their schedule is more of a priority than ours?

      I hate moths, when my husband pointed this one out rest along side the raised garden bed I freaked out.

  8. Before our son moved out, again, he used to use the dryer as storage. I'd find HIS clothes all clean and dry when I needed the dryer for my own clothes. I got tired of it and used to either, throw them all over his bed, OR, shove them in a laundry basket and let the cat sleep on them. ;)

    1. Mike,

      I've usually throw my sons clothes on his bed, this time I didn't because they were wet and sour.

      Now if he leaves them in the dryer, I think I will throw them in a basket and let the dogs lay on it. Thanks for the in sight :=)

Yes, I am making them get there laundry done today and hanging it out on the line. I just love all your pictures!! The bird, and the bees and the flowers and the ... dogs! Almost sounds like a song! Haha! You know the one?
