In which something smells weird


Don’t you hate when you walk into your kitchen and something smells weird and you can’t figure out what the hell it is for the life of you? I’m sure you do, after all why would you like that?


I just walked in and there’s sort of a weird smell in my kitchen.  I checked the disposals and there wasn’t anything in there and I’m pretty sure it’s not the trash so now I have absolutely not idea what it is.  Sometimes I think it’s in my imagination but then I remember last year when I thought I smelled gas for a few days and I finally mentioned it to Kevin who told me to call the gas company.


Sure enough, I had a natural gas leak under the house and the damn thing was ready to blow.  Of course, I managed to spin it into a funny story and blog about it but still, it makes me more aware of how oblivious I am.


That’s why I’m determined to figure out what’s going on.  Not so determined though that I’m doing it immediately.  After all, I got a new cup of coffee and decided to come to my office (where it doesn’t smell), drink my coffee, talk to my fish (see Andie they’re not your fish anymore) and write a post.  After I’m all up and about then I’ll sleuth out the stupid smell.


I know it’s not gas so it’s highly unlikely my house will explode but that would be just my luck since I’ve recently replaced both my washer/dryer AND my dishwasher.  It would really piss me off to have the house blow up after that hassle.


Although, there’s this cool app I have on my iPad called Houzz, which I spend a ton of time looking through.  There are over 1.6 million pictures on there and I have gotten the coolest ideas for if I ever build a house again.  The thing is, I no longer need a big house since all the kids flew the coop but I see the most awesome cubby areas and laundry rooms (which I rarely venture into anyway) but still, I do enjoy the app.


My point is that I love my house but if it DID blow up I have some new ideas on how to rebuild it.  Of course, Kevin would probably be totally pissed at me since he’s already pretty busy and loves the house we currently reside in (so do I.)  I guess in leiu of that I’ll actually check out the smell.  IN A LITTLE WHILE THOUGH.


In other news, I have no other news.  Andie texted me yesterday to explain that “She absolutely needed new contacts and WHEN was I going to send her the doctors number?” to which I replied, “why didn’t you remind me?” and then she said “I’ve told you four times” which is patently untrue and I told her that was bullshit.


Then I Googled the doctors number and sent in to her and informed her that I used Google and she could have done this all along and then she sent me a nasty response “wow, you’re amazing … bye” and I remembered that she is a colossal pain in the ass.


Meanwhile, Daniel seems happy and Keely is good (knock on wood) so that just leaves Kevin who is crazy busy at work putting out fires, literally.  I mean they literally had a fire.


My dog is still faking his own death, my cat is a snarly mess and the fish are alive.  It’s only 9:49 AM and I consider this day a victory and I’m counting this rambling mess of bullshit as a post.


Don’t like it? Go find a well-written blog.  See ya.

    Maybe it’s potatoes. Every time I have a weird smell it’s either the potatoes or the onions that have gone bad in the cupboard.
