shocking news

I had to break some unfortunate news to Josh this weekend.

Namely, there is no fairy that changes your sheets every week.

It is, in fact, (drumroll please)........... Me.

As you can imagine, this was more than a tad bit shocking to him. That, and the subsequent realization that I am also the one that vacuums, feeds the dogs, changes their water, and cleans the bathroom.

I'm sure this is akin to children finding out there is no Santa Claus, but since Josh is Jewish, he's never felt a shock quite like this one.

Now that the truth has been set free, I hope to report back to you that other players shall be occasionally taking over the role of cleaning fairy. Stay tuned.

Tango and Murray are going to change the sheets and vacuum? Cool!

Girl said...

Yeah...um...good luck with that.

Wait, the sheets get changed every week? I think the cleaning fairy around our house might need a nudge in the right direction...

halloweenlover said...

Ok, ok, MC, the cleaning fairy exaggerated. The sheets really get changed every two or three weeks, but who's counting?

Don't bet on it. I'm just sayin'.

Nancy said...

There's no cleaning fairy? No wonder my house is such a mess. ;-)

Suzanne said...

I KNEW it! That would explain a lot around here...

HA! My husband apparently thinks there is a grocery shopping fairy that comes and fills the house with all sorts of food, so that when he offers to go by himself he only has to pick up the 2-3 things HE needs!

And I was thinking that the new player was going to be the housecleaner. We switched cleaners lately and got one who changes sheets. It's nice, having clean sheets every week.

Where can I get one of these cleaning fairies?

liz said...

Ahhhhh...the cleaning fairies. So beloved by small children....

peripateticpolarbear said...

I want a cleaning fairy.

Piece of Work said...

HIlarious, HL!

Though I am even more impressed that you change the sheets once a week. I thought I was doing pretty well at once a month (don't tell my mother!)

ccw said...

I want to live at your house; clean sheets every week. I wouldn't even know how to act if the "fairy" changed sheets that often. Does the fairy also make the bed?

This is such a funny post! I hope the fairy gets some help around the house.

Angie said...

Heck with the cleaning fairy. I want a wife! LOL -the June Cleaver type.

Vigilance will be rewarded. I promise.

I fought this fight (I hope it is not a fight for you, but it was for me). I did not give up, no matter how tired I was, or how much easier it would have been to simply do it myself.

Do not underestimate how much he will resist and bellow and yell and act like a jerk. He hoped to bully me into giving up by acting like an ass.

Now? We are pretty much 50/50 on the domestic front. All of the anger and fights...it was all worth it. Change does not come easy.

Yes, life is good.

Chris said...

You are too funny.

Poor Josh, being disillusioned like that ;-)

Jessica said...

Poor dear...hope he was sitting down when he received this harsh "ah hah" moment!

Ninotchka said...

Once again somos gemelas. Ask Naysha, I always say everyone in this house thinks there is a laundry fairy. Guy used to do the laundry when I worked outside of the home. Now it's all me. Dang. lol

aglHe does know the Underwear Gnomes don't bring him the new underwear too, right?

Limon de Campo said...

I'm jealous of your clean sheetage. I wish I had some sort of sheet fairy. As it now stands, we just make sure we fall asleep quickly--dirty or clean doesn't matter when one is sleeping.
