And my mom once put her tupperware full of Christmas cookies in the oven to keep the cats away from them, and preheated the oven.  The cats have been dead for at least 5 years, and my dad still mentions it every now and then.  Dads are like that sometimes.  Roll Eyes

From the swap description: "We will be swapping a minimum of One medium item and two small items or one large item and one small item."

Since I'm new to swapping, can someone give me an idea of what would constitute a "small," "medium"  and "large" item? I don't need specific examples for/from this swap, just something to give me a frame of reference. I have a list of things I might want to make, but I don't know where they fall in the "size" category.

Thanks!

When I first got married, my husband would hold the glasses up to the light to see if they were clean enough to use. After trying two or three, he'd rewash one. 

Ha, my partner has a history too.  Before I met him, his roommate once beamed him over the head with a frying pan while they were doing dishes because he while he was drying he would throw back every second dish into the sink because his roomate didn't clean it well enough for him. 

But, and I'm so grateful, he was broken by his next roommate who would do the dishes, sometimes, but fill up a large juice jug with water and put all the utensils in it to 'soak'.  It was a permant part of their kitchen.  When the water level got low, evaporation or something, they'd top it off.  When they needed a fork or something, they would pull one out of this fetid, stank-ass water and rinse it off and actually use it to eat food with.  When I moved in, in an act of great courage, I plugged my nose and emptied the utensil jug into the sink.  Inside there was a wooden spoon, or it was at one time anyway.  It must of been sitting in the water for months because it had swelled to five times its usual size and was taking up half the room in the jug.   Tongue

Evidence of un-domestication #876:

Our kitchen sink has been clogged to the point of un-usability since Halloween.

Call a plumber? No way.

I'm not taking a day off work to deal with that.

I'd rather do dishes in the bathroom sink for 6 months.

bbonnn: you win  Cheesy

A simple unclogging of a kitchen sink has cost me the same as a whole semester's of college textbooks.  Not lying.

Why didn't I take plumbing in school?

I tend to put things in piles all over the house and, quite often, those piles remain undisturbed for months. Yesterday, while looking for a crochet hook, I started digging through a pile on the couch and found that a mouse had been camping out on my couch (nestled in a piece of fleece) and munching on bird seeds (stolen from a bag I had sitting on the kitchen floor). On the upside, I did find my missing iPod  Grin

As I look around me now, I see tons of places for mice to hide and live quite comfortably! I could have a whole colony around me right now! Yikes!

Well, since Easter is at my house, I should take a few hours this weekend to start making a dent in the mess...mum is coming for Easter... Cheesy
