"This house is a disaster!!!"

All I saw was the couch cushions kind of frumpy and crooked.

Oh wait......
There is the kitchen, dining room, and family room. Let's see..

There's david and thomas' mess of their science project that included candy and toothpicks.
Thomas' shoes everywhere,
grilled cheese leftover mess that didn't have to be so messy,
everyone leaving their dishes everywhere,
a bag of something that looks like David's swimming clothes from 4 days ago,
the laundry room is piled with... Gasp! The boys' clothes. What do you know?
And the list goes on...

Hmm.. Where is all of Sarah's stuff?
Oh, right!
She's not so much of a burden after all because she puts everything away when she's done and doesn't leave all of her stuff around the house.
But I do admit, there is one pan that I used to make pizza yesterday. That's it.

The only thing I really mess up is my room/closet, only because no one has to look at it. And I even cleaned and organized it yesterday, thank you very much.

My mom has been psycho about cleaning the house lately. Whenever I hear the words "This house is a disaster!!!" I get ready to be asked to clean it top to bottom. Spic and Span.
Normally we do all of the cleaning on Saturdays, as do most families, but it looks like their won't be much cleaning tomorrow since one person is doing it all today.

I know I'm living here for free since I graduated and all, and I'm not "working" at the moment..
{I still am making money on photography and I still have clients.. It's just REALLY slow.}
But uh.. She shouldn't be pulling the "You're living here for free" card.. Because if we get down to technical aspects.. I'm still not 18 {10 days!}. So I couldn't really sign a contract for an apartment or anything.
And plus, a lot of teenagers get around 18 and a half years of living at home for free because they're finishing up their last year of high school.. Don't I get credit for finishing early? I mean, they could have me not contributing at all while I'd be still in school, having dive practice 24/7, being student body president, having mounds of homework on top of that. Wouldn't that be the dream child?


Okay. Enough rambling because I don't really have a point and I could go on forever.. which I already did.
It's a battle that can't be won, because eventually I'll get married, move out, and have to help pay for our living anyways.


I'm not really angry about anything I've said. It was more like a smidge of annoyance and I just felt like being dramatic, because really, I don't mind cleaning. I even enjoy it, I just need motivation sometimes.

My mom suggested contributing by making dinner most nights...
Not sure how I feel about THAT one. I'm a great baker, not the greatest cook.
But I'd like to try anyways.
I don't think I'd feel too bad if they ate burned food every night... They'd asked for it. :P
Just kidding.


Seriously, I'm done typing now, after a million words.

I hope everyone has a lovely Friday. :]

P.S. {I promise, this is short} Check out the photo blog. I redesigned it recently. It's cute.
And there's a post with pictures of my brother.

  1. You are living here free! And since you're not going to school, and have limited responsibilities right now, I think helping out at home while your mother slaves at work is not asking too much. And hey, while I was learning to cook, my syblings and parents ate a few burned dishes, too. :D Have a happy day. Hugs and I love you tons!
