Tidy Tuesday - A losing battle :)

It seems like work is never done because it IS never done!
When I went into the bathroom last night to brush my teeth, I noticed that a certain someone (who will remain nameless) dropped his clothes about one foot away from the clothes hamper.  Really?!  Just 12 more inches and it would have made it into its proper place.  It got me thinking about all the homemaking frustrations we moms deal with on a daily basis.  It didn't take long to come up with a list  :)

1. Well, let's put my example as #1...not putting clothes in clothes hamper.  The hamper is NOT a decoration!  It has a function!
2. Not covering refried beans (or anything that isn't a solid) in the microwave and leaving an exploded mess to clean up.
3. Advertised cleaning products that don't perform miracles.
4. Recipes that don't turn out ANYTHING like their gorgeous pictures.
5. Tomorrow's dinner ingredients eaten as a midnight snack.
6. Putting damp towels in the hamper.  Isn't it funny that the dirty clothes end up on the floor and the wet towels are put in the hamper?
7. Burning a new pan or scratching a new non-stick pan.
8. Not using a cutting board on the kitchen counter.
9. Forgetting shirts in the dryer so they get all wrinkled.
10. Not noticing the gel pen in the pocket of the shirt going into the washer.
11. Not putting the lid on the blender!  And then not cleaning the splatter off the ceiling  :(
12. Produce that gets "lost" in the refrigerator until you come across an unidentifiable liquid mess puddling the shelf.
13. The "new, improved" design of Costco milk jugs.  Hint...transfer the milk to a gallon pitcher.
14. Sharpie marker in the hands of a preschooler.
15. And of course, the ever famous...stepping on a stray Lego in the middle of the night!  Ouch!

This list took only about 10 minutes to think up.  Given a little more time, I'm sure I could write pages and pages...

How about you?
