My floors are horrendous. Seriously, I want to puke when I look at my carpets. SO GROSS. These kids have wrecked havoc on our beige carpet. Beige carpet? What the hell was I thinking? I should have invested in black carpet. Much more baby friendly. Also, my couch has several stains on the cushions. We use sippy cups exclusively. Why is everything I own stained with milk and juice? Gah.
We have too many toys. WAY TOO MANY TOYS. I just can't seem to get rid of anything. As soon as I think about tossing something, the kids suddenly start playing with it again. So we keep it. And my mother certainly isn't helping the situation. She is always sending toys. She sends lots of stuffed animals too, but my kids aren't really stuffed animal types of kids. At first, I tossed all of the stuffed animals into Porgie's closet, but we quickly ran out of space. Now I just toss them straight into the trash. I know this sounds mean, but I can't continue to collect junk. So my mother pays to ship stuffed animals from KY to NJ, and I toss them straight into the garbage. I feel bad, but what can I do? I guess I could ask her to stop sending them, but that seems rude. Plus, she probably wouldn't listen to me anyways.
My bathroom is really ugly. It is painted this strange green color, which I think is horrible. John, on the other hand, thinks it looks great. I really want to paint the bathroom grey, but I lack the time and energy required to complete this project.
Since having the room painted in Februaury, I have developed a fondness for my outdated kitchen. I kind of like my 1970's yellow backsplash. However, I DO NOT like my yellow formicha countertops. I have been trying to convince John to have the countertops replaced. He thinks it is a waste of money since we are going to replace the entire kitchen in a few years. I just hate waiting. I want the kitchen to look better NOW.
Okay, I am done complaining about my house. Thanks for lending an ear. Are you working on any projects around the house?
