Have you ever started some task around the house only to be distracted by another task?
What was I saying?
Yesterday, I finally got a bee in my butt to move a chair from the living room to the bedroom. I got the chair for extra seating in the Living Room, but nobody sits in it when they come over. I want a comfy chair in my bedroom so I can sit and read.
A plan came together.
I lugged the chair up the stairs all by myself. Yeah! I had to wiggle the chair through the door. Wiggle is a technical term for not getting the chair stuck in the door frame.
I got the chair to the corner of the room but I needed to push the nightstands and bed over to move the chair against the wall.
Just push furniture. That’s easy.
This is where shit got sidelined.
It took a lot of budging to get the bed to move over. That’s when I realized how badly under the bed needed to be vacuumed.
But my vacuum wouldn’t be able to get under the bed unless I moved the mattress and the boxed frames off the frame.
Why didn’t you just move the bed? Because it wouldn’t budge, people. It wouldn’t budge. The mattress weighs a freaking ton, so lifting that and then finding a place to put it was a challenge.
When I moved the box springs I noticed several piles of cat puke, various toys, lonely socks, the whole area was covered in dust and hair, and a pile of Doritos right below where the head of the bed is.
Doritos??? Fucking Doritos. How long have the been there? How have we not had bugs?? Yuck.
I don’t think we have vacuumed under the bed since we painted the room. We painted the room a year before M was born.
OMG. It’s been 7 years.
I’m grossing myself out.
I really would like to think the Doritos haven’t been under the bed that long.
