Box THIS, Buster!

I curse the man (it had to have been a man) that invented the "box."

Wait...let me rephrase that.

I curse the person who taught my Husband that "cleaning" means stuffing all the crap you can into a box and shoving it into a closet.

"Out of sight, out of mind."

He actually said that to me with a straight face.

I'll be lucky to avoid spending my Christmas in a jail cell.

Heard in my house this evening:

"NO! I want not beans!"

"But beans are GOOD! You LOVE beans! You liked them last week."

"NO! STOP sayin' dat. I want NOT beans!"


"Say Day-O!"

"Daylight come and he wan'go home."

"Day, he say day he say day he say day."

"HEY! Whachoo singin'?"

"It's the Greenbean Marching Song. They like to march into your mouth."

"I want song!"


I ought to write a book.

Name: Cattiva
Location: Virginia, United States

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
