I've been working so much or been gone, so I have totally ignored anything domestic for over a week. That fucking laundry really piles up. I don't know why but lately the sight of piles of dirty laundry makes my blood pressure rise and makes me actually ANGRY. I feel like David Banner. I see damp towels, and inside-out pants, and dirty socks all over the laundry room floor and I can practically feel the seams of my purple pants ripping and my skin turning green.
|I need some more goddamn Downy AAAAAHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGG!|
Kira's path of destruction also makes me angry lately too. I shouldn't be able to come home and see everything she has done and every place she has been based on the litter she has left behind, should I? Is it too much to ask a 12 year old to pick up her own shit? I found two flute-o-phones in the bathroom today. TWO! My latest domestic peeve is the fact that she leaves her dresser drawers hanging open with clothes draped out all over the place. I've been telling her for months and months to SHUT THOSE DAMN DRAWERS! and still they are left open. The other night around midnight I was going to take her book off her sleeping face and give her a little kiss, and when I walked in I accidentally ran into the open bottom drawer. HUUUUULK MAAAAAAAD!
I flicked the overhead light on and said, "GET UP!" I think she probably thought the house was on fire or something. When I was finally able to wake her up and drag her ass out of bed and tell her to SHUT HER GODDAMN DRAWERS she looked at me like I was a crazy person. I upped the crazy by telling her that if I see them open like that again I'd take the dresser. She looked at me like I had finally lost my marbles and carefully asked what she would do with all her clothes if I took her dresser (also implicitly asking where I would put an extra dresser), as if I hadn't already thought that through. I actually hadn't thought that through. I hadn't thought any further ahead than causing her some inconvenience and annoyance. So I guess the consequence of her losing her dresser would be piles of her clothes all over the floor. The very thing that causes my total hulk-like irrational rage. Also, I'd have an extra piece of furniture cluttering up my house. What kind of a corner have I painted myself into?
Let's all hope she keeps her drawers shut.
