Little Bit of Life ... Confessions from the Bathroom

Not THOSE kind of confessions!
Get your mind out of the toilet!
(pun, intended .... bahahahaha!)

I crack myself up.

I'm delusional.
You'll know why in a moment.

Back to the bathroom:

Yesterday -- I went to church, I went to a two-year-old's birthday party, and then ...... I spent approximately three -- count them -- THREE hours in the bathroom.


Didn't think so.

Okay, so here comes the "confessions" part:

I have my own bathroom.  As in ... my husband has HIS bathroom, and I have MY bathroom.  It's always been that way .... even back in our first house, which only had two bathrooms.  One was his, one was mine.  Other people's oookiness in the bathroom just grosses me out to no end --- even when said oookiness belongs to my husband.  Is that weird?

Now, (for the last 8 years since we built our current house), we have four bathrooms.  MY bathroom and SCOTT'S bathroom are literally on separate ends of the house - HA!  We couldn't have gotten them any further apart if we tried.  (Key reason being Scott's bathroom is just off of our mudroom/laundry room ... and when Scott comes home every day covered in MUD .... he is pretty much RIGHT where he needs to be .... his shower.
His shower.  {SHUDDER}  I don't want to know what's in there.  I usually make Scott clean it himself (except for maybe once a year when I lose my mind).  Does that make me a bad wife?

Here comes the big one.  Don't judge.
I scrubbed the floor .... ON MY HANDS AND KNEES .... with a hard-bristle brush and three kinds of cleaner for at least an hour yesterday.
(I am NEVER using hairspray AGAIN, by the way.)
But -- that was the FIRST time I have EVER done that.

Yes, I did say we built this house eight years ago.

It's not as bad as it sounds.

Before I had Lucy - and back when I was still working full-time -- we had a housekeeper.
(Boy, do I miss that!)
Now, it's just not so justifiable since I'm home most of the time - (and therefore, make less money!).

There are more important things to buy now .... like TOMS for my baby. :-)

Anyway, I'm sure the housekeeper (probably) scrubbed the floor! .... but that floor hadn't been good 'n' scrubbed for THREE-AND-A-HALF YEARS.
Swept?  Yes.  Swiffered?  Yes.  Even mopped?  Yes.
But SCRUBBED? .... nope.

And I now know that that particular room -- MY bathroom -- is the NASTIEST room in our house.

Correction:  WAS the nastiest room in our house.

Over three years of hairspray, PLASTERED to the floor.  Ugh.

Honest to goodness, I scrubbed until my knuckles were raw and bleeding!

And when I was done?
I laid face-down in the middle of the floor!

See?  I've officially lost my mind.
So much so that Scott's bathroom just might be next .....
(Can you tell that Spring Break is ONE WEEK AWAY!?!?!)

P.S.  The WASHI TAPE GIVEAWAY ends tonight!  Don't forget to enter!


  1. You are definitely not a bad wife. Because if you are, then I definitely am. I'm not into cleaning very much. If I can't see it, then it doesn't bother me. My husband, however, is a clean freak and I drive him crazy.

    We had separate bathrooms in our last house, but we share one now. That took a little getting used to.

  2. Nope, not a bad wife. We used to have separate bathrooms until we moved recently and now there is only one bathroom. Quite an adjustment to say the least. And no matter how I clean it diesn't seem to be where I want it...sad but true

  3. You're not a bad wife. I am a terrible housekeeper and I don't work outside the home at all. I think that would classify me as a bad wife. BUT, my wonderful hubby never says a word. :) I love the pic of you, btw. ;)

  4. Girl, you need to read my tut on the blog about cleaning your baths in ten minutes.....:) And yes, I am totally grossed out by my hubs bathroom habits. Boys are so yucky.

  5. YOU my friend are HILARIOUS!!! AND adorable!! LOVE that picture of you. {you need to be a catalog lady or something} And while you were scrubbing your bathroom yesterday, I was scrubbing my carpet, only I was NOT successful entirely yet...I may or may not have spilled a HUGE bunch of paint on my carpet...I's worth crying over!!

  6. Thanks for giving me a giggle! I love your posts, always make me smile:)! Have a great week!

  7. you and I could be roommates - LOL - I can totally relate! we have separate bathrooms too - guess what I scrubbed the hairspray buildup off of my bathroom floor???? alcohol and that little scrapper that comes from pampered chef - ah haaa - no lie. It took me like 4 hours - I dared anyone to use my bathroom - I love your little blog :)

  8. You are hilarious! Three hours is some SERIOUS dedication lol, but I'm sure it feels great to have it done :)

  9. THIS is why I never use hairspray in the RV. Pain in the ARS!!!

    So...You'll have Penne a la Betsy ready for us Monday night??? ;-)

  10. LOL hope Tom doesn't use hairspray also!


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
