So Yeah

Admittedly not my safest plan to date:

But when I fall there's a pretty good chance it will be a soft landing. And I couldn't say that about the rickety ladder. Right?

What the hell?! I haven't had to change some lightbulbs in my house since we moved here 7 years ago! That is so bizarre.

Be careful!! All you need is to break you ass again;)

Claire said...

Please move the bed!!!!!

Mr Furious said...

We could lower the price of that house by ten grand and probably save that money on light bulbs. WTF?

Smitty said...

To be even safer, I would suggest that instead of this sturdy chair on the bed, that you use one of those chairs that rock and swivel and has casters on it.

Also, hold on to a set of metal pliers and be sure to grip the lightbulb as close to the base with them as possible.

Gigs said...

lol to Smitty's comment...

But Mrs. F., that does look exceptionally dangerous. What if you just have showings during noon-time daylight and leave all the lights in the place off... :)

Mr Furious said...

Wouldn't work, Gigs. Our house is like a permanent solar eclipse. The lights everywhere all need to be on.

Mr Furious said...

Holy shit Smitty. Everyone in the office is wondering why the hell I just roared with laughter.

Liz said...

Oh Mrs. F, I'm cringing. Honestly, I have never heard of so many light bulbs burning out in a single house (in a 3-4 month span!). Or a lock jamming or a large rodent digging holes while a neighbor cuts down trees...not that you're jinxed or anything:) it's officially reached the laughable stage, right?

springiris said...

Ummmm just have to say- been there.... done that... it didn't turn out good...

:)

Mrs Furious said...

This was actually significantly less wobbly than the ladder. So that lets you know how crazy rickety it was. Imagine Gilligan swaying on the top of a coconut tree.


Liz,
for real! I think things have crossed over from "oh that's weird" to completely absurd. I don't even wake up ever assuming I'll have a *normal* day anymore.

Lindsay said...

No way you didn't way braver them me!

lucinda said...

Get the chair off the bed and get your feet on the floor!

Mr Furious said...

The nightmare continues...Baby vomited all over the place at Kid's performance tonight.

Mrs Furious said...

You can say that again.
Worst night of my life.
Front row spewing vomit all over the carpet, etc.
Baby was humiliated having to be stripped to nude in front of a thousand people.
I had to walk the entire length of the auditorium with a nude puking kid trying to catch the vomit in my skirt.
Good fucking times.
Awesome.
And after watching over an hour of the program... I missed Kid's performance while washing us down in the bathroom.
I cried.

Kiki said...

Oh Mrs.F, I'm so sorry about tonight. I promise the salty air will restore you and if that doesn't work I've got Van's Maple Fusion waffles here for you!

Love to you,
Kik

Ohhhhh, Mrs. F. I laughed at the chair on the bed. I laughed at the carrying of the puke in the skirt. But my heart absolutely sank for you at the end of it all. I'm so sorry. What a sucktastic time you are having. I wish I could do something to help.

julie said...

Oh Mrs F...that is so horrible about Baby and the puking.

Will this nonsense ever end??????

Gigs said...

Maybe the silver lining is that there actually is a virus running through your house and Kid's puking wasn't anything more serious? My heart is broken for you...Maybe some nice classmate will have Kid's performance on video and you can still see it?

Torey said...

Oh Mrs. F! The image of you and poor baby crying makes me so sad! Did someone get a video of Kid's part? You could borrow and have a special movie night with her. Have a slumber party on the living room floor and eat popcorn, and drink things filled with HFCS for just one night.

I really think you should look more closely at the "burn the house to the ground" insurance fraud plan. . .it has it's upsides. ;)

Andrea said...

Poor baby and Im so sorry this really sucks for you. I hope tomorrow is a better day.
