During my last Keepin’ It Real Home Tour, someone couldn’t believe that my family and I were actually living in our home given the condition it was in – they even said our house and yard should be condemned.
Now, I know there was a toilet in the yard during that tour, but really, that’s grounds for condemnation? I wasn’t aware.
Well, here I am again today, rocking a should-be condemned house and I guess providing more reasons for people to call The Department of Human Services on me. 😉
The Keepin’ It Real Home Tour Holiday Edition
For a while during the first part of this month, the dining room table was sporting all sorts of holiday paraphernalia. I leisurely worked my way through it.
Also, that random table in front of the chairs lost it’s place in the living room, so it just kind of floated in the area between the living room and dining room for a while.
The stacks of holiday Rubbermaids generally stay in the living room for weeks until they are all emptied out. That bag full of garbage stayed there for about a week. Don’t worry though, it was only paper products, nothing icky. I don’t think so anyways….
I think the WTF pillow best describes the general theme of my current office situation.
Cheap beer and Slim Jims keep me going during this time of the year.
I also don’t turn my head up at bacon bits, imitation only please though.
And finally, just to make sure I can keep my “living in a should-be condemned home” status, here’s what my kid’s room looked like after our annual Christmas party.
It’s actually a bit deceiving as you first walk in.
You turn and it’s not too bad.
But then you hit that playroom and it’s like BOOM.
One is left wondering where everyone took shelter when the bomb went off.
Her friends did say it was an awesome party and she even told me that “it rocked her out.” Given this mess, neither of them was lying. I guess even Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus and the Wise Men got tore up from floor up, because there’s the manger laying there in the middle of it all and we still haven’t found one wise man and Mary. The Circus has been using Smurfs to stand-in during their absence.
I’m going to go get a pot of coffee ready for the DHS worker.
There are five other bloggers showing off their real life tours today too. Click the links below to visit them and then let me know if their house is more condemnedesque than mine. Because if so, I’m going to go pull that toilet out of the shed and stick it in the front yard. 😉
