Kid Art said...

Whoa Mrs. F - I'm exhausted just from reading your list.

And you're working out after all that? You're guilting me into it. Off to the basement!


PS What about Canine F? surely there was some dog maintenance in there to make your day even more complex...

Mrs. Furious said...

lol! Canine puked on the floor this afternoon!... I'll have to go add that in!

Seriously today was NUTS and I literally never sat down for more than the time it took me to return my comments. And even that was a struggle.
Off to go take the laundry out of the dryer....

angie said...

glad to baby is okay...any idea what the hell is going on? was it a satisfactory visit (i.e., did they blow you off)? or just an okay one? Dr. Asshole or Dr. Hippy Chick?

Mrs. Furious said...

Dr Hippy Chick... which is FAR preferred for this type of visit. She thoroughly checked everything. Either teething or developmental stuff.

Amy said...

? Wondering why you stain treat lights ?

...am assuming, laundry.

This post reminds me of when we had to do a time study of our workday when I was an OT at a nursing home. It was like:

Go down to patient's room
Get patient out of bed
Walk patient to bathroom
Have patient attempt to wipe their rear
Wipe patient's rear

Mrs. Furious said...


yes laundry.

and lol... my house... nursing home... same dif

Laura said...

Found your blog today and really enjoyed it!! Sounds almost like my life in a nutshell....LOL

Mrs. Furious said...

Hey thanks for commenting! :)
sadly today is JUST as CRAZY....

P.O.M. said...

Damn. That's a lot of work. I'm exhausted just reading it.

Last night my daughter woke up at midnight and I put her in bed with us. At 5:45 she woke up so I put her back in her bed. At 6:35 she was fussing. I went to get her milk when I discovered what the fuss was about. I *thought* she had pooped then taken off her diaper. Nope. She took off her diaper then pooped in the bed. I got most of it clean and sprayed it with bleach spray then asked my husband to wipe it down. He claims it wouldn't come off. Now, HOURS later, I have to try to figure out how to get dried poop off her mattress and bedframe. The joys of having a 13 month old. The joys of having a very UNhelpful husband.

Mrs. Furious said...

ugh... the amount of times I clean poop up around here is mind blowing!
Unhelpful husbands... don't even get me started... Mr F is retarded at night. I can't remember a single time when his "help" was actually helpful.
Good luck with mission poop removal!

Deb said...

I've tried to do a similar post, and then I get lost sometime around 10am and forget to write things down. How you managed to both DO all of that and record it is beyond my comprehension. Major applause.

Mrs. Furious said...

That is because my super power is mental retention!
