Airing the dirty laundry

BellaRose is in love with her bubble machine that OG (old granny) got her. She has not quite figured it out though and keeps sticking her hand in the machine. She also still adores her Radio Flyer push wagon. She just recently learned how to get into it. This is how I found her the other day while I was ironing. She just sat there talking to Rainy eating her rice cake!

We have all talked before how blogs are like our own little "bragging arena". We can talk about all the wonderful things we do and none of the bad. I feel convicted, especially since my last post where I got so much praise. I need to "air the dirty laundry". I am sure most of you know my dirty laundry, but now I need to just put it out there, acknowledge that I really am not great :)! Oh, and by the way, this garden is really Worth's baby. He is the one that loves on it and nurtures it. I do my part, but it is really his garden, I am all about my potted plants, like the ones you see from my kitchen window. Our own little oasis. Okay so here goes, the dirt~
~I hate shorts!
~I probably make people uncomfortable with how much I am trying to make them comfortable in my home.
~I am way to clean and I make Worth crazy. He sometimes ask me if he should move out b/c I am always moving his things.
~You must have a proper place setting if you come to my house for dinner or any meal really: cloth napkin, place mat, fork, knife, spoon, whether the meal warrants all of them or not
~If we argue it takes me a long time to cool off even if we have said our apologies, sometimes even days.
~I can get very grumpy if I am tired or hungry, VERY GRUMPY!
~I don't drink enough water
~I hate to dust
~Can't leave my house without making the bed.
~I get very upset at Chick-fil-a when they don't give me the right amount of Honey Roasted BBQ sauce, even after I have asked for a specific number (right Annie).
~I can get very annoyed very easily.
I know there are more, but those are the top ones right now. Feel free to tell me more if you would like, but just be for warned I probably won't tell you until a couple of years later that you really hurt my feelings!
Okay, go love on those Mom's and I will talk to you later (hopefully :))

Oh, how I wish I were as neat and clean as you!

Look at her eating those bubbles! That is too funny.

It's important to air out the laundry... otherwise it sits in your basmenet and starts to smell after awhile :)

And I don't do shorts, either.

Dan, Annie, Will and Mocha said...

I love this post, you are awesome, even in your quirks.
It's funny, but these are the reasons I love you so much because you've always been very real, all 18 years I've known you.
You very comfortable in your own skin and not driven by people's opinions and that is so refreshing.

Love those bubbles. Girl s getting so grown up.

I laugh. This post was fabulous. The whole time I am thinking, I know these things are true and they make me love you more and more!!! They are a small part of what makes you Sunday, wonderful beautiful, no short wearing Sunday.

JTP said...

This post makes me miss you!!!!!!!

Kristin said...

Hi Sunday! Did you resend your message to me yet? I laughed so much at your last post and enjoyed your dirty laundry list. :)
I can relate to so much of your list and am exactly the same.
And my husband is responsible for all the beauty in our yard too...I do the pots. Pots are so much more fun!
P.S. the fact that you hate shorts was funny to me b/c I have this pic of you on the Barrow's trampoline in shorts and when I think of you that pic always comes to mind

I will still wear shorts, i just hate them! Kristin, when I waited tables at cheeseburgers in hell i wore jeans or pants most of the time even though that place was an inferno! i will e-mail you shortly.

I forgot about Cheeseburgers!! Man we stunk when we got home! I love you just the way you are, there isn’t a single thing I would change.

JP is constantly telling me to stop picking up his stuff, but he doesn’t ever put it up if I don’t...girl don’t get me started.

I have so many "dittos" for your laundry list, darlin', it's simply insane (except for the shorts thing--what the heck do you people wear? Do you not get hot? Wear skirts? ACK!). The bed making thing cracked me up, though, because I can't even leave a MOTEL ROOM without making the bed, even though I know housekeeping will just remake it while I'm gone.

This was such a good post, It's always refreshing to hear that the people you think are the coolest have their weirdnesses too! But I think I will still love you and your laundry all the same:)
