A meme for entertaintment

I swiped this from Swistle. It’s called the ABCs of homemaking. I’m not going to tag anyone though. But feel free to swipe if you’re feeling domestic.

Aprons- Y/N? Nah. I don’t own one. I just keep the towel on my shoulder like mom did

Baking- Favorite thing to bake? Cookies or brownies

Clothesline- Y/N? No, I don’t like my clothes to be all scratchy

Donuts- Ever made them? I made beignets once; do they count?

Everyday- One homemaking thing you do every day? I either sweep or clean a dish every day

Freezer- Do you have a separate deep freezer? No, we don’t barely fill the one we have

Garbage Disposal- Y/N? Yes and it’s a pretty sweet invention.

Handbook- Y/N? I could write you one…

Ironing- Love it or hate it? – Don’t do it actually. Ash buys wrinkle free shirts

Junk Drawer- Where is it? Kitchen and it doubles as a “utility” drawer

Kitchen- Design and decorating? -Our kitchen is pretty old and has nasty white cabinets and ugly blue wallpaper. I don’t do much with it because someday we’re going to totally redesign.

Love- What is your favorite part of homemaking? I guess I like looking at the house once everything has been cleaned.

Mop- Y/N? Um. Yes, I usually mop the kitchen floor once a week with this anti-pet smell stuff

Nylons- Wash by hand or in the washer? I don’t barely ever wear them so I dunno

Oven- Do you use the window or open it to check? Eh, depends. Ash hates when I let the heat out
Pizza – what do you put on yours?- We’re boring: cheese and pepperoni

Quiet- What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? read or listen to music

Recipe card box- Y/N? No, but I really should

Style of house- I like to call it a gramma house. it’s ranch style (I guess), 3 sides brick and basic roofing, one car garage.

Tablecloths and napkins- Y/N? Napkins yes. We normally eat at the coffee table but when we have guests, I use placemats

Under the kitchen sink- bleach, other cleaners, detergents and roach bait. He.

Vacuum- How many times a week? MAYBE once. We don’t have a lot of carpet

Wash- How many loads do you do a week? Probably 3 or 4.

Xs- Do you keep a list of things to do and cross them off? I go in spurts with lists. They work best for me but sometimes I forget.

Yard- Who does what? I tend to mow more often but we’ll both do larger projects.

ZZZs- What is your last homemaking task for the day? Making sure there’s nothing in the sink to attract bugs.

Why does it always rain on me?

It’s going to be one of those days. First, I was running late to work. Or at least, I thought I was. Then I got to my office about 10 minutes early. Ok, so that was actually better than I thought. So I check some mail and head to the library where my students had a researching assignment. Half of them were not prepared (i.e. – no pen or paper) but somehow they all did the assignment. Well, all except one girl. She comes in about 10 minutes late, dressed to the nines and sits at my table. She came only to sign up for conference but told me that pledging to the sorority takes up so much time she doesn’t have time for school. This wasn’t a complaint; she was telling this to me matter-of-factly. Then she admitting to knowing she’d take an absence for the day, seeming not to care. Wow – why don’t you just drop out of college?

After leaving the library – a little later than class normally gets out – I went into the Union for a bagel. I was trying to be lazy and catch the bus but of course, it pulled up when I was about half a block away. I started running/jogging, spilling my drink and missing said bus. So I ended up walking and it wasn’t even that bad. I don’t know what I was thinking. But things seem better now; I am back to my office, reading soem papers and it’s already 10:30, which seems a lot later than I thought it was. So yeah, how’s everyone else’s Thursday going?
