I hope everyone's having a good day. I'm a little grouchy today. First thing when I got up, I saw that my husband had dumped all the dirty laundry from our clothes hamper out on the floor. He has a softball game tonight so I'm guessing he was trying to find a pair of shorts to wear. But I wasn't too impressed to see a giant pile of dirty laundry on the floor left for me to pick up. There were a few choice words and grumpy thoughts as I picked it all up and put the loads in the wash (Thursday's the day I always do laundry).

I then went downstairs to see that my husband's fish tank is so low on water the filter is making all kinds of noises. This is entirely his project and honestly he does not maintain it. There is always an excuse, he needs a new part or he doesn't have time, whatever; meanwhile the fish tank is filled with algae, the fish don't get fed, there is a snail plague and the tank gets noisier and noisier as he doesn't top up the water. And it's right in our front room, the first thing people look at when they come over. Not cool. So I topped up the water (making sure it was the right temperature and adding the water conditioner) to keep myself from going crazy from the noise. I can't imagine the fish like that either, it must be so noisy for them. Grumpy, grumpy!

I'm trying to get over it and just smile instead!
