A Few Questions

Why am I the only one that notices Capri Sun straw wrappers stuck to the dog and lying on the playroom floor? Why am I the only person capable of putting away a pair of shoes? Am I the only person who notices the dirty socks that have been sitting in the hallway all day long? Or how about those few stray cheerios under the coffee table in the living room? Or the empty root beer can on the mantle? Why do they pile more garbage on top of the already full trash can in the bathroom? My favorite is when they just throw garbage over the gate into the hallway and leave it there! How come nobody puts the dirty laundry down the chute until I ask, even if they have to step over it to get to the toilet? And why not throw out the paper cup they use when they brush their teeth? Why are they all left on the sink? And if you see a pencil or crayon on the floor, how hard is it to pick it up? The same goes for loose change... And if you have something on the stairs that belongs in your room, how hard is it to bring it up with you? You're walking right past it!!! And how about getting garbage into the actual can? And what's up with all of the empty cups/cans in their bedrooms? And dirty clothes on their floors? Then they complain that they don't have socks. And why can't they take their garbage out of the van when they get out? I only venture to the back seat occasionally, because I get so mad when I'm back there! And how hard is it to put their outdoor toys away? How many things have we replaced because they got left outside? And those darn dirty fingerprints on the refrigerator door and around the doorknobs and lightswitches...ugh! And leaving empty boxes in the snack cabinet and then wondering why I didn't buy more poptarts? How am I supposed to know that they're empty?

O.k., that's enough for now. I have to go and peel the straw wrappers off of the dog, empty the garbages, throw laundry down the chute, empty the dishwasher, load the dishwasher, make lunch, clean up lunch, fold clothes and put them away, vacuum, clean the fridge, change numerous diapers, figure out what is for dinner, make dinner, clean up dinner, do dishes, do laundry, force kids to do homework, give baths, iron clothes, pack snacks..........
