Thursday Thirteen

Here are the things that only I, the woman of the house, have the super powers to do:

1. Throw out the empty shampoo or body wash bottles.

2. Replace the roll of toilet paper.

3. Empty the trash can in the bathroom, unless it is dump day, in which case I must get to the smaller cans in all rooms before he does, or he will drag the big kitchen bag around the house, regardless of whether it is smelly or dripping something.

4. Turn socks back to their right side after he's peeled them off his stinky feet and left them inside out.

5. Fold towels.

6. Clear the old food from the refrigerator (unless it is dump day. Then everything goes whether I'm ready for it to go or not.).

7. Place the dirty dishes from the sink into the empty dishwasher.

8. Spot and dispose of stink bugs, lady bugs, spiders, and other insects that he apparently never sees.

9. Put toilet bowl drop-ins into the toilet.

10. Clean out the soap holders after they gunk up.

11. Clean out the toothbrush holder after it gunks up.

12. Hang up clothes from the dryer directly onto a clothes hanger so they don't wrinkle.

13. Make the bed.

What are your super powers?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 716th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday. Or so sayth the Blogger counter, anyway.


  1. Yup! And I'm the only one who has ever noticed the toilet needs cleaning and does it.

  2. If you went on strike, the house would be a mess ;)

  3. Weirdly, as a mom to four boys and a husband, I have many of the same superpowers. Except the sock thing. There are some things Mom/Wife will not touch. Socks are one of those things. Nope. Not gonna happen. Also the toilet in the boys' bathroom. That's always been on them.

  4. I wish you would visit my bathroom. I put off all those cleaning chores until I disgust myself.
