Because then I could donate it to the Save-a-Mom Charity of which I am the sole benefactor. Or I could just hire quality service people to take care of all the crap around the house the Hubby and I are too lazy, too tired, or too unskilled to tend to.
For example, someone really needs to come clean this place up (too lazy, too tired, & too unskilled). And, we could seriously use a lawn service to straighten out this landscaping "situation" we've developed (simple lack of skill on Hubby's part, of course). And, last but not least, a little assistance in the child watching department (let's call this one too tired, although it could possibly fall under all listed categories) would also be nice.
While my financial capability to acquire experts in the above categories is virtually nonexistent, there are some things I prefer not to do without.

Here is my thank you note to him.
Also, before I forget, please go over to My Mimi Pie whose owner (Erika B.) supplied me with the most beautiful stationary. So, CUTE (as you can see), and she has some perfect princessy designs if you happen to have someone who is into that at your house:).
Thank you, and you're welcome.
Card reads: Dear Pest Control Person, Thank you for showing up at my home an hour before our scheduled appointment. I hope I didn't scare you with my uncombed hair, my unbrushed teeth, and my unclothed body; my bad. Also, I realize that you were called out primarily to treat an ant problem, but I think snakes also qualify as "pests" so not sure why you were running from my yard screaming like a school girl. Oh, and for the record, the ants are actually NOT dead yet, so looks like we're gonna need to reschedule. For an AFTERNOON appointment. XOXO, Dumb Mom
Thanks again Mama Kat for the weekly inspiration! And, if I was really gonna donate money to a charity it would definitely be the National Kidney Foundation.
