A Mother's Truth


Cartoon by Dave Walker. Find more cartoons you can freely re-use on your blog at We Blog Cartoons.


I've been gone for three days. Big mistake. This is what my day looks like.

What are your plans for today?

Ha! We share laundry duty in our household, so I totally feel that one. Nice!

Day of working on the house and keeping the kids entertained. Kinda like every other day...

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Simon, have fun with the kids! :-)

Sharon Mayhew said...

My husband was gone for four days...I think he wore at least two outfits a day...I've got a big pile to do. Life's fun little chores.

Catherine Denton said...

This cartoon cracked me up. Man, it feels just like that sometimes. We have friends coming to visit and my daughter has a study group coming over. Lots of activity.

Hope you're able to squeeze some fun into the day!

Sara McClung ♥ said...

LOL!! That is SO my day tomorrow

:-)

Angela said...

Have you been in my laundry room again?

Jemi Fraser said...

Yup - that's me too! It multiplies exponentially when you ignore it!

Heather said...

I've definitely had my basket look like that before! Fortunately my husband has a lot more time and a lot fewer clothes than I do, so he usually washes them. (I still do my own delicates, though.)

Today my conference starts! But I have to do a few things around the house before I head down there.

Candice said...

The truth of that cartoon is giving me anxiety!

Natalie Murphy said...

I'm going to write today! Wooohooo!

I think we might also be going to visit my mum's good friend (the ony who had the baby in Dec).

=]

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Sharon - Ah, hubby laundry. Almost as fun as kid laundry. :)

Catherine - You know the cliche: Too much to do, too little time.

Sara - Well, if that's your tomorrow, make sure today is a good one!

Angela - Yep! And I have secret pictures to prove it. Ha ha.

Jemi - Yes, it does!

Heather - My hubby is actually pretty helpful with laundry too.

Candice - Take deep breaths and think happy thoughts.

Natalie - I envy you. I wish I could have a writing day (and we all love a new baby!) :-)

Natalie -

Sally said...

TerryLynnJohnson said...

I'm working on a rewrite that an agent asked for! Which explains why I'm on your blog right? lol. I need help focusing.
I can't wait for your review of the Cry of the Icemark

choco (In Which a Girl Reads) said...

Hahaha, very funny but true cartoon :)

Jonathon Arntson said...

The story of my life!

Jennie Englund said...

See-- you DO write about truth! You ARE deep (in dirty clothes).

Hope you got caught up.

staceyjwarner said...

Yes, too much, right?

All my "chores" are done for the weekend. I just need to write for class.

YAY! Good luck

much love

Cleverly Inked said...

hehehaha, I have a husband who does the laundry *hears gasps now*

Southern Princess said...

oh shannon I would help if I could...my plans for today were upheld beautifully:

Pajamas all day - perfectly useless for at least 5 hours, work on manuscript & watch movies with hubby... yep completed each one *giggles*

Currently I am listening to some songs that have influenced my WIP and thinking about some scenes while taking ONLY 15 minutes to catch up on some blogs! ;o)

Oh & yeah - my laundry will look like that tomorrow......but not tonight.

Mary Campbell said...

That's what my laundry looks like all the time - I never get caught up. I think it's rather impressive to have a mountain in our house. The key to maintaining such a mountain is to wash just enough to get you through the week.

Guinevere said...

I'm not sure if this puts me a step ahead or a step behind... we always have a mountain of clean laundry. My laundry room has an expansive countertop, and it's just too tempting to take clothes out of the dryer and dump them there!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

EVERYONE -
Wow - I'm waaayyyy behind on my comments! Thank you to all of you for taking the time to visit and leave a comment. We ALL know how great it is to check the blog and see new comments waiting for us. I appreciate every. single. one! :-)

Karen said...

lol!! Thanks for the laugh! Thankfully, my awesome Hubbykins kept up with his and the Pea's laundry while I was gone. But how did I manage to produce such a mound of dirty clothes on a 4 day trip??

Jen Chandler said...

That's what my blog reading (and my kitchen) looks like :)
