May She Rest In Peace!

100_2350

Laura, a stay-at-home-mother passed away from exhastion while working on her mission impossible which was to make sure that the entire house was clean and organized for at least one moment in time.  Although she worked very hard, and came very close to meeting this mission, her battle with the vicious dust bunnies has left her defeated.  Even her arsenal of magic erasers, swiffer mops and special micro duster thingies didn’t make a difference.

She acquired her special agent status as a stay-at-home-mom in 2007 after 18 years in the workforce.  Since then, her prideful accomplishments have been completing the climb to the top of Mt. Clean Clothes, finding her way through Clutter Forest, and endured Scum Desert under the hot oven. 

Unfortunately, she was unable to crack the code to hard water stains, and where the heck the house flies were coming from.  May her family continue her quest to find the answer to those questions.

She is survived by possessed toys that seem to come alive when nobody is looking and land right in the middle of the living room floor, dirty laundry that multiplies to full loads within 24 hours time, throw rugs that make their own carpet crap to vacuum, and of course the vicious dust bunnies that hide under not just the couch.

May her family deal with the dirty stove, grubby refrigerator, scummy toilets and unmade beds with ease in her absence, and may she rest in peace!

    Hey, that is funny.
    I am always amazed when the house actually gets clean. It is never when I set out to clean it all at once, but rather when I do a bit each day for MANY days in a row. Then I stop and look around and go, “Wow! It is actually sort of clean!”.

    Laura gave her unrealistic dreams a valiant, yet misguided,effort. She will forever be remembered as the mom who tried to get the whole house clean- despite all indications that this was never to come to fruition. In 16 years you can hire someone to come dig you out and get you all organized- then you and Roger can change the locks on the doors and sit back and enjoy the clean, quiet, comfort of home : )

    One of your nephews was at our house last weekend, and the mud was endless. He explained to me that I needed to get one of those “steam mops”, he said his Mom has one. All I could reply was, “I’m sure she does!”
