A meme

I don't do many of these, but this one is different. Courtesy of Dooneybug

Aprons (Y/N): Nope, none. I only wore them back when I waitressed.

Baking (Favorite thing to bake): Butterscotch bars. Made with a spice cake mix, and butterscotch morsels....think spicy brownies. yummy

Clothesline (Y/N): Nope, I use my dryer. Too lazy for a clothesline.

Donuts: yeah, I love donuts, but try not to eat them anymore. Our family has a recipe for mashed potato donuts which are a pain to make, but are so worth it.

Every Day (One homemaking thing you do every day): Pick up after the kid and husband.

Freezer (Do you have a separate deep freeze?): I absolutely love having my extra freezer. It's normally full of deer meat and chicken and whatever else just doesn't fit in the regular one.

Garbage Disposal (Y/N): I wouldn't mind having one, but it isn't a big deal.

Handbook (What is your favorite homemaking resource?): I don't think I have one. Maybe mom and mil, but really, I'm not much of a homemaker, to begin with.

Ironing (Love it or hate it?): I HATE to iron. I leave big piles of it until i have no choice, and then spend hours. Sometimes W will do some for me, but not lately.

Junk drawer (Y/N) (Where?): One in the kitchen and one in the bathroom. We have so much clutter.

Kitchen (Design and decorating): My kitchen is lame. Not much upgrading available for a mobile home. Oh well, it is functional, what more could I want?

Love (What is your favorite part of homemaking?): I hate cleaning and organizing.

Mop (Y/N): 98% of my house is carpet. Only kitchen and laundry room have fake laminate flooring, which gets swept with a broom or vacuumed, then scrubbed with a fake swiffer thing.

Nylons: Haven't worn these since I moved south, compared to every work day while in PA. Hate them, and don't miss them one bit.

Oven (Do you use the window or open the door to check?): My oven doesn't have a window, so if I wanna check, I have to open the door. No light, either.

Pizza (What do you put on yours?): normally just sausage, or pepperoni and extra cheese. Not a veggie fan, so none of that.

Quiet (What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment?): What is quiet time? Maybe surf the internet or read.

Recipe card box (Y/N): hahahah, no.

Style of house: as mentioned above, it's a mobile home.

Tablecloths and napkins? regular napkins or paper towels. Tablecloths so I don't have to dust the dining room table.

Under the kitchen sink (Organized or toxic wasteland?): It's a mess. W organizes from time to time. And I think it's time.

Vacuum (How many times per week?): Before the Dyson, luckily if it was twice a month. Since the Dyson, I am averaging about twice a week, but not so much lately, with the surgery and sickness, and what not. My inlaws vacuumed for me last week.

Wash (How many loads of laundry do you do in a week?): Umm, W does the majority of the laundry, sometimes every day. If he's not keeping up, It's normally about three or four a week.

X's (Do you keep a daily list of things to do and cross them off?): I try to do this at work, but I'm not real consistent with it. I do it at home when we have a lot to do, say before the inlaws show up for a visit.

Yard (Who does what?): W does the grass and poop clean up for the most part. Sometimes I do the weed whacking. We don't have a garden or anything, so it's mainly just grass cutting.

Zzz's: I never get enough sleep. W tosses and turns all the time, the dogs snore, I am normally up sneezing or having to pee. Some nights I'm out like a light, others I'm up many many times. I need to get more sleep.

This is kind of fun, and of a subject you don't usually see in these tests. Wish I could do it right now at work, but I gotta, you know, work.

Hope you're doing well, dear! Get a new job! (you know, that icky day one).
