My Apologies

I'm sorry. I haven't meant to drop off the blogger map. Last week I was busy and this week I got sick. I've been running a low grade temp for three days.

Yesterday I spent the day in bed sleeping. My husband and teen daughter were home while I slept.

They even left the kitchen for me to clean, so thoughtful.

Here's the pics.

I shudder to think of what it would look like if I ever came down with a serious illness.

Words fail me..you don't deserve that!
If I lived closer I'd come over and either kick their butts or do them myself.
Ok wait,how about I do both?
That's sucks Carolyn,I'm sorry:(

That's the kind of thing where you see it, put your hand to your head, march back into your bedroom and swallow another pain pill....

My husband does this too. Not so fun.

I hope that you are feeling better and that the state of your kitchen did not make you feel worse.

I second what Bookworm said, and maybe you should stop buying groceries until they clean up the sink! That'll show 'em ;)

Ms. L - They're done now. (by me) On to the next batch.

Daysgoby - Why is it that we are the official kitchen/everything else scrubbers?

Bookworm - I do believe my temp is gone today, thank goodness.

Bearette - I absolutely didn't cook dinner last night. There was much whining.

I'm sorry that you're not feeling well, I hope you're feeling better soon.

And that is just what happens to my home when I get down and out which thankfully isn't very often!

You shouldn't have to clean that up when you are sick.

Ick. Feel better soon. I guess you ordered some extra of our germ infested kleenex. Now you know I ain't foolin'. Get better and threaten your husband that you are hiring a maid.

I suggest you take yourself off on a holiday somewhere for a couple of weeks and leave them to fester in their own filth.

I think finding my kitchen in that state would give me more than a temperature!

Ty- We can't afford to get sick.

SL - Yes, our kitchens are much alike.

Mary - I wonder what it would be like to completely lose it. I'm afraid if I do, I may never find it again.

Workingirl - Shouldn't have to is every mother's mantra.

GM - I hope by now that your germ carriers are finished. Fingers crossed here for you.

Livesby - I would love a vacay, a real one at the beach with books and chocolates. I can almost taste it.

oh my fucking God. They LEFT that for you? H may have his head up his ass, but he would NEVER leave that for me, esp. if I were sick. Come visit me, dear, and have a vacation - I'll cook for you and keep you supplied with good books and chocolate.

Two words for your husband and daughter.... bloody shits! Like that's all you needed after being ill. I hope you get them back somehow.

They ate watermelon wtih a spoon? Who ARE these people? And you didn't change the locks when they left?

You, my dear, deserve a medal. (And a cleaner!)

Now hop on back to bed.

Here I was thinking that my family is the only ones who does that when their mother is sick in bed. Hope you are feeling better soon!!

Man, you really need to kick ass when you're well. Then move out for a week and see if they starve to death.

OMG!! Heads would seriously roll if I got up after being sick and saw that!!! That is just not right!! I hope they cleaned it for you......though somehow I think you ended up doing it. :(

You feeling better I hope!!

Babelbabe - Just read with me. We can heat up TV dinners together.

Chris H. - Hmmm. Think if I got them t-shirts that said "Bloody Shit Sr" and "Blood Shit Jr" they would wear them?

My Float - A cleaner would run screaming if she saw this place.

Beadinggal - You too? Sucks doesn't it!

Old Hoss - They would just go to the store, buy TV dinners, and leave the dirty wrappers on the counter, three short feet from the trashcan.

Chelle - Am feeling a bit better, thanks.

I love that the spoon was conviently left in the watermelon. Just in case anyone wanted another bite I'm sure.

Typical - toss me under the bus right along with the daughter (who is SUPPOSED to do this chore, but never can seem to find the time). Jeeez...
