I hate all chores I really do, but one that has become one of my least favorites recently is taking out the garbage. It’s heavy, our garbage truck comes super early….ect. I have dubbed it my husbands job but he gets a little forgetful Thursday mornings.
So instead of just taking out the garbage myself the night before I set a few alarms on his phone for right before he leaves for work because I am usually still sleeping. The problem was I set them for P.M. instead of A.M. so they went off while he was teaching night classes. I felt bad, but it seemed to work because I was in “not having to take out the garbage bliss” for a few weeks. This last Thursday it happened again.
Oh the dread I felt. I know it should not be a big deal but oh I really hate it! I needed to come up with another plan. This took a little help from my 4 yr. old who became my photographer for this project. I texted him the following picture.
Yes I know, my acting skills are superb, and my plaid pajama bottoms are ultra appealing. I must not of been too convincing though because This is what he texted me back.
“Your funny. At least I gave you a great blog post”
He knows me too well. Glad I could at least be his entertainment for the day! I am still hoping this lasting image helps him every week to remember to take out the trash or I will have to get even more creative.
Who knows what I will come up with next!!
