It’s MY party.
I. DON’T. WANT. TO. CLEAN!
Remember when I announced that my husband was planning a surprise party for me?
I was very excited.
I ran and got my hair colored.
I ran and got my eyebrows arched.
I planned out a cute outfit to wear.
I called all my friends…who don’t read my blog…to let them know that I know!
And we giggled about the fact that, while my hubby is cute…he’s not real bright.
But…what I did NOT get…
was my house cleaned.
In fact…it seemed to get messier, dustier, laundrier(my own word. you may borrow it)…the closer Saturday approached.
My husband assured me that he’d take Friday off in order to clean and prep for the auspicious occasion. Yay hubby. Extra favors for you!
But Friday morning came. And the 6:18 alarm rang. And the hubby pressed snooze. Phew. He may really be taking Friday off.
But then…the alarm rang again…
and he JUMPED out of bed. RAN into the shower. Dressed. Left.
One less favor…
So, I called my darling, sweet husband on his cell and asked him what he would have done alleging that I hadn’t found out about this party…to get the house cleaned.
He told me…
He would have hired someone. And…
to shut up. Get over it. And start cleaning. (He’s kind of a dick in the morning. Perhaps that conversation would not have been so…HARSH.
I shut up. I got over it. And..
I started cleaning.
What can I say? I wanted my table to be laundry free. And my kitchen decluttered. My toilet de-pooped stained (sorry, tmi 😉 ) And the house de-cat-fur-ized.
And SOMEONE had to do it.
That someone was the BIRTHDAY CHICK and her sister!!
There had better NOT BE one single comment about lack of gratitude!
Because I am so excited that I’m having a birthday party.
But…my rosy red rear end can be kissed with tongue for having to clean the house for this!
I’ll be taking lots of pictures!!! A picturementary will be up on Sunday. Or Monday…
Depending on how hung over I am.
Depending on how long it takes…
For ME to clean up the house after MY birthday party!
I will tell you the truth – I’d have cleaned, but it’d be a cold day in Hell if I gave up any tail for a long, long while. Yes, I am that hag. Don’t judge me.
LOL… You poor thing! But what can we do?
Have a great night…

There better be some serious arse kissing for you to have cleaned up for your own SURPRISE party. Hope you get some cool bling too! Happy Birthday sista friend!
The Retired One says
Can’t wait to hear all about the party!
And: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
This had better be one hell of a party if you had to clean up for it. A wise man will have as one of your gifts a maid service to clean up after the party.
But at least you get a party out of it. I’d clean if I got a party.
Have a fantastic time.

My husband threw me a surprise party for my birthday in January and I ended up cleaning the entire house before and after the party. I was PISSED! Mine was an actual surprise!
Have a wonderful time!!
I would have said,
“and who were you going to hire? What were you going to PAY them?”
I hope you have a FANTASTIC party ..and I hope that hubby cleans up afterwards to make up for not doing it to begin with. 🙂

Can’t wait to hear how it went… and if you were right! No matter what the outcome (I can’t wait to hear), I hope you had a good one 🙂

HAHAH!!!! Sorry, this post as funny and I’m laughing at your expense. Happy Birthday! And be sure to put lipstick on those who must kiss your rosy red thing and take pictures!
