Proof that I am Not Pampered

I know a lot of you folks out there think that I am one pampered and spoiled mama, being that I get to do such glamorous things things like run while carrying a vomiting 4 year old across the house, or catch pee with my hair, all while sipping my cheap wine. But I’m really not that spoiled. See the proof?

This is what I walked into the other evening.

Yes, the TP has been balanced on the empty roll.

I was kinda thinking the hard part was getting it out of the basket down there on the floor. Guess I was wrong.

This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.

Ha…that’s why I bought one of those tp holders that is just a “c” shaped hook – 1) VERY easy to put on a new roll and 2) you just physically can’t balance a roll on top :O) Just food for thought!

Haha! Why, pray tell, couldn’t the culprit just put the go the extra step to actually put the roll through the tissue. It is technically “on the roll,” heh.


A long time ago I decided that because I do so much around our house I was going to stop changing the toilet paper rolls (unless it was a dire emergency or hubby was out of town and it would be days before it would be changed.) I don’t know where that level of selfishness came from, but hubby got really good at actually putting the roll on the holder.

Good times.


I can top that. Found half used roll still on the holder BESIDE the toilet. The one on the wall holding the empty roll. ‘Mr Nobody’ was too lazy to even lift the roll off the holder and place it on the wall.


Hey, at least that circumvents that whole “toilet paper – over or under the roll?” conversation.


I walk into that ALL THE TIME!!!

His excuse, “It’ll make it quicker to change it when the roll is empty.” Um . . .

Logic I don’t dare explain.

Ok, I admit it. I’m guilty of the roll on top of the dispenser move. I hate taking the tube off and putting the new roll on. I have no excuse nor any idea why i don’t like doing it.

*hangs head in shame*


Are you kidding me?! This is the FIRST TIME YOU HAVE RUN INTO THAT? If it is, congratulations! I have been married for 19 years and let me tell you, sister…I am sorry to say, it will happen again. *sigh*


Aren’t us guys terrible?

Wait until your boys get older and you find yourself looking at NO toilet paper… ANYWHERE!


I feel that pain. I have always wondered how on earth they could go about locating the TP, getting it out and actually putting it right where it belongs without actually putting it on the roll.


You’re SO pampered! Our toilet paper holder broke umm, about a year ago, and since it was anchored to tile, the tile broke (of course) and Hubs has yet to fix it.
