House-Boss pins again: My Ugly Laundry Room Divorce & Free Pretty Printables

These lovely printables are the newest pin in House-Boss' latest pinterest obsession. Anything & everything laundry related.

Oh, you didn't know that instead of working at work he text me sh** he finds on pintrest ALL DAMN DAY LONG! Usually suggestions hints on how to clean things. I'll admit blame here, I showed him pinterest way back & now he browses (his words) it daily. That would be fine, but he forwards them my way because I have nothing better to do apparently.

Now I've officially outed his pinterest-habit to the world, I'll let you in on why he's abnormally obsessed with all things laundry right now:

Rewind about two months ago, I was brutally attacked...by the laundry.

Yes! You heard right!

I'll say it again to help it sinks in a bit more...

My wire laundry basket launched a viscous attack upon my body! I was slightly severely wounded. The extent of my injures went far beyond the initial attack!  I was unable to wear heels (a tragedy in Melly-World) for 3+ weeks.

I considered a restraining order until I was informed by house-boss that was nearly impossible to obtain such a thing. DAMN!

After looking into all my options I decided to simply "Divorce" my laundry. After all I succeeded in removing 98% of all dealings with my ex-husband that way, why cant I apply the same tactic to my laundry situation!?!

Which got me thinking I may have a case to claim losses due to inflicted damages! I'm back to my ex-husband-ing experience. AND once again house-boss was there to squash that hope too! Double DAMN! He's really starting to annoy me now!

If you're keeping score 1: Laundry - 1: Melly

The laundry lashed out with one final crippling blow to the proverbial "Junk"! Full malfunction of the wash machines settings! House-boss could only was laundry (Myself + laundry were still setting the terms of divorce so he was the mediator for the time being) in screaming H O T water & the rinse cycle quit completely.

But before I could finalize my divorce decree with the laundry, house-boss pulled a trump card from the deck. Face it, the odds were stacked against him. I had a justifiable out from doing laundry...forever! His only solution was to play dirty...& that he did!

He went out & purchased this brand-spanking-new set to replace the misfit pair we had held onto for 9 years now.

I gotta hand it to the man, he knows me well. His secret? Well..in my world I cherish things that are "pretty". Say what you will about that but it's a hardcore fact about yours truly & he exploited it to the fullest. (I've taught him well)

Now he made the large purchase, time to fully redo the entire room as insurance I will indeed kiss & makeup with my arch enemy the laundry. Thats where pinterest comes in!

Here a sample of room ideas he's sent me so far:

  6. Too funny! I've had this drama all month but our home warranty people {after 3 weeks and 4 guys visiting} finally patched it back together instead of replacing. Hmm... But I'm getting a new kitchen out of it! YAY but kinda weird I know! Does HH have a Pinterest profile so I can stalk him?

  7. Funny! I wish my {first} husband was into Pinterest! I may need to set up an account for him. laura@imnotatrophywife.com


I love your comments, but keep it clean, my kids may crack the password one day & I'd prefer to be the one who teaches them the bad words!
