The following day my husband removed EVERYTHING from the cabinet and deposited it on the dining room table while he attempted to fix the cabinet.
Mid-repair job (a half ass repair job if you ask me, since he claims that the movable parts can't be fixed without taking out all the other cabinets. He may be telling the truth, but I'm still not buying it - since his repair job will pretty much render the cabinet useless.) his drill broke. Of COURSE it did. That's the way it always goes.
Two days later, I sent Julie a text.....
|July 19, 2012*|
With the caption "How many days later? *sigh*"
I think this text came about because I told her I should totally steal her Luggage/Gate Watch idea. Too bad you can't get to the original Luggage Watch posts....it was EPIC! (How many days DID that luggage sit there, Julie?)
Julie, being Julie, laughed and told me she thought I SHOULD do a Watch post - because she's sweet like that.
I kind of shrugged it off and went on with the business of every day life. Until this morning.
This morning it dawned on me. The stuff from the cabinet is STILL sitting on my dining room table.....
|July 27, 2012. Yes, all that was in the one cabinet. Don't ask me how.|
EIGHT days later (eleven, if you count from the time the stupid cabinet broke in the first place)!!!
Now granted, our dining room table is pretty much only used for bill paying, homework, computer storage and not actual eating; usually, but still....
It should also be noted that you can easily see this mess from the front door should someone actually, you know, venture up to the front door in the first place.
I realize we are not currently in a position to run out and replace the drill (which, by the way, is only about a year old in the first place! Don't tell me to take it back - I already tried that. Apparently, not only did he NOT keep the receipt, he can't remember WHERE he got it from in the first place! Men!) especially since college costs are eating us ALIVE right now (speaking of which - anyone have a good laptop they aren't using and willing to donate to a poor, but deserving, freshman?) but seriously, how hard IS it to borrow a drill for the half hour (tops) it would take to
So it's official.....Spice Watch 2012 is ON! And now matter how much it pains me, while this plays out I will do my damnedest NOT to say a word to him about those spices littering my table.
But, I must admit, he HAS been keeping my counter tops relatively clutter free these days.
*My phone completely and totally takes the blame for the poor quality of the pictures. Obviously, I had nothing to do with them!
