I dont think guests are obliged to clean up. It would be nice but it’s not convention.

Strangers to my house aren’t obliged, I always suggest they leave the dishes alone. Friends I’ve personally invited over for a lime and fanfare aren’t obliged to clean up, but they sure as hell do because they know I don’t go over to their place and leave dirty dishes (especially not on their couches).

Friends who call me, come over to my house at night, after N + I have been working 10+ hrs, to utilise my resources, reach when I’m having dinner with my boo (which we paused to give said friends a tour of our new place) and I offer them something to snack on, and leave dirty dishes on my couch?….no. All levels of no.

My friends came over. Ate some popcorn and shandy we offered them (let me insert here that we’ve been budgeting so hard lately, it’s been a tight financial situation between N and I). So I reiterate that we offered them what we had to eat that didn’t require cooking, which was the last of N’s Shandy and the two popcorn packs left. 

My ‘friends’ just left and didn’t wash dishes yall. I am so pissed. I made a point to thank one them for washing the dishes when he left the bowls on the couch …our new couch that we don’t even eat on but allowed them to just to be courteous… and handed him the bowls on the way to the kitchen (he placed them in the sink without washing them and left). 

Look, I only offer the free dishes pass to strangers. Friends know they need to do better. I’ve never been to a friend’s house and NOT washed dishes after they took the time and energy to make something for me to eat. I’ve also known these guys for over 10 years. 

I am livid. Unfortunately, I have no money on my phone to let them know that I think they’re dicks…but there is definitely tomorrow and I’m not letting that shit slide.

I post a lot about Maddox and rarely mention the other dog in my life, Ranger. He’s really my mom’s dog and is quite a handful. He is a Caribbean Sheppard aka mix breed aka pothound. Cool dude, he just needs more attention.

When I started losing weight, I was really happy and thrilled. It had been years in the making mentally. I plateaued a long time ago and it’s settled over me like a failure cloud, even tho I know I haven’t failed. There are days when I can’t see what I look like anymore, I think I’m back at my highest (and when I was at my highest I was in a major depressive episode), it’s not the best period for me to reflect on. The day I took this pic, I was feeling really ‘big’ but I decided to try the top and shorts on anyway. After taking this pic, I mentally came off the “big” cloud and started feeling like myself again, happy and accomplished. Muffintop and all. This body is great, it does wonderful things, it’s strong, it’s curvy..and bumpy…and stretchy. Yeah, I beat it up every now and again but its the only one I’ve got and I’ve gotta stop except it to be Sofia Vergara curvy and strive and appreciate it for being splitsun’s (although still lunging and squatting for some extra rear lift).
