Week 3…4? of being home alone with the family makes me very grateful that I’m with them while also wanting to strangle them a lot. I suspect I’m not alone so today I’m sharing a list of things we fought about in the last 48 hours.
THINGS WE FOUGHT ABOUT DURING THE PANDEMIC:
Where everything goes in the kitchen.
The best place to clip fingernails.
How to stack things in the dishwasher.
How to stack things in the pantry.
How to stack things in the refrigerator.
Whether expired food is still okay to eat.
Whether waking up at 11am is self-sabotage or self-care.
Whether Hunter S. Thomcat needs a kitten.
Whether the dog likes being dressed up as my tiny coworker.
Whether the eggs Victor made taste like dish soap.
Whether I appreciate that he made eggs even if they taste like dish soap.
Whether to leave all the cabinet doors open so we don’t have to touch the handles.
Whether to watch The Breakfast Club or 15 episodes of 90-Day-Fiance in a row.
Whether to clean the garage or just leave it because who needs that extra stress right now.
Whether to put Xmas decoration in the attic or just leave them in the garage because we’re totally not going to get them out again if I have to go up a ladder for them.
Whether to spray lysol on packages before opening them or to save the lysol and just wash our hands really well.
Whether to leave the pantry door open so the cats don’t accidentally get locked in there or leave the pantry shut so the cats don’t get in there at all.
Whether I l constantly leave all the lights on when I go to bed or whether Victor turns them all on while sleepwalking.
Whether I can give the dog an extreme haircut because I bet she wants something new.
Whether to lure the squirrel that lives in the backyard (Squirrely Temple) into the house to live with us until the hawk in the backyards goes away.
Whether Hailey should do her schoolwork at the table or in her room.
Whether it’s okay for me to start small, controlled fires in the backyard.
Whether to use all this time do boring businessy stuff or make new outfits for taxidermied animals.
Whether it’s acceptable to turn the living room into a temporary art studio if I put bed sheets on the floor as tarps first.
Whether it’s okay to drip paint on the floor of the garage which is already ruined anyway.
Whether I should start a garden even though I kill everything and also don’t have any supplies and can’t get them.
What the dog is currently thinking about.
What to add to this list.
Your turn. What are you arguing about?
