It's Always Something...

You know that kid's book "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"? Just in case you've never heard of it, here is a summary. The mouse wants a cookie which leads to him needing milk and then a shave and so on and so on. This mouse is completely ADD. It's ridiculous how sidetracked he gets.
I might laugh if it wasn't so much like me. Here is the perfect example. Yesterday I went to Costco to pick up a cake (The All American Chocolate Cake....YUM!) for a co workers birthday. Yeah, I know......Costco was the first mistake. While there I found one of those curved shower curtain rods which I'd wanted to get for our place up north. Decided I wanted one for the kids bathroom at home also. So I got 2 of them. A couple hundred bucks later we were finished at Costco. (Got a bunch of stuff I didn't even know I needed). Went upstairs to look at the kids bathroom. Decided to take out the shower doors. Tom had to help remove the tracks and the glue or whatever that yukky stuff was. The tub was gross. Decided to clean it. The rest of the bathroom looked like a gas station bathroom. A bad gas station bathroom. Decided to clean the whole bathroom. Might as well wash the towels too. And why not wash everything in the hamper while I'm at it? Unfortunately the washer and dryer were both full of semi washed/dried clothes. Had to fold. Back in the bathroom - noticed holes in the walls from shower doors. Spackle you say? Good idea! Have any? Nope. Off to the hardware store. While there I remember that we need some.....well, it really doesn't matter.....are you seeing the whole ADD - If You Give A Mouse... theme here?? Umm yeah. And this isn't even my bathroom (other than for the fact it is in my house).
But really it's all Melissa's fault. It was her birthday!
