    And tell her to put them in the camper fridge?

    We have company in the house and I am rushing - didn't I mention something about disliking surprise visitors on a thread here last week? - trying to get dinner on the table.

    DD runs back in, "mom come quick I have a problem."

    She tripped and dropped all three dozen eggs all over the interior of the camper. And gosh those eggs must have flown when she tripped cause they were every where.... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What are you gonna do? It was an accident.

    Mopped most of it up and got back to the guests. Tomorrow's clean up will be a doozy I think. [​IMG]

    I did mop most of it up. But campers cabinets have one dirty secret - there is space between the bottoms of the cabinets and the floor. To allow for flexing.

    I will have to empty out several of the floor level cabinets and completely clean out the insides.

    Don't see what choice I had with the timing of it.

    trade it in?

    I mean the RV not the child....hehe

    Worst thing I have had to scrub up was when one of the kids dropped the juice pitcher with just an inch or so of apple juice in it. It bounced and somehow managed to coat everything from the ceiling to the floor and took a week of washing again and again to get rid of all the stickiness.

    I guess it's just late, I should go to bed... but this reminds me of last year when I was watching/feeding my neighbors' geese while they were in Florida. I was gathering the goose eggs because they didn't have a proper coop and I didn't want to attract raccoons. Kept them, because I thought they looked cool and my neighbors didn't care about them. Then I forgot about them. Totally forgot about them. Went out one night, came back late, there was the most putrid odor all through my house. Hard to describe, but god awful. Walked around looking for the source before I finally discovered that two of the goose eggs I forgot about had exploded. They sat there for weeks, if not a month or more, I just completely spaced it. That was THE most awful cleanup ever!!! Green crap all over my kitchen cabinets, counter, stove, everywhere. I almost threw up several times cleaning it up. [​IMG]

    In highschool I went to a diner on a date. Guy din't realize the cap was unscrewed on the glass ketchup bottle, and gave it a good shake. 2 seconds later I looked like an extra from a zombie flick, red smears all over hair to waist. No second date for that guy.

    So then my foster daughter runs a whole load of potato peels down the garbage disposal with no water running.

    First off why throw that down the garbage disposal when we have goats and chickens and a composter? [​IMG]

    But, of course it clogs and starts to back up and she turns the disposal back on after it is clearly not going down and splatter gook around the kitchen. [​IMG]

    So my friend's new boyfriend who she brought over to introduce to us got an unexpected treat! [​IMG]

    So she cleaned that up, but at 630 this morning DH and I are on our backs under th sink getting showered in water and potato bits as we take apart the trap and unclog the drain.

    Next job - the camper!!

    Gotta love kids. They bring chaos wherever they go.

    My favorite would be the time my oldest DD accidently squeezed a ketchup packet in the dining room - that sucker got ketchup everywhere - I can't believe one little packet made such a big mess. My sister was watching the kids when it happened and she cleaned up the table, laptop computer and floor, but somehow she didn't see the ketchup on the curtains, ceiling and chandelier. That night at dinner, I look up and sternly demanded an explanation while trying not to laugh. My mother ducked her head so the kids couldn't see her laughing, she had to excuse herself from the table.

    Then there was this kid I was babysitting - chocolate pudding and my kitchen curtains. I seriously think it would've been less work to move than clean that mess up.

    Oh, no! So sorry! When it rains, it pours! [​IMG]
    Three months ago we bought a large chest freezer. I decided to empty out the refrigerator/freezer we have on the lanai and unplug it. We use it mainly for bait and fish on the freezer side, and adult beverages and bottled water on the fridge side. Since we're in Louisiana for his job, we didn't need an extra appliance running in Florida. I removed everything and cleaned it out well. The next day it still smelled a bit fishy, so I cleaned it again with bleach and lavendar scented Fabuloso. I left the doors propped open and left to meet up with DH. I came home a month later and had to repeat the process and hosed down and bleached the floor. I went back to Louisiana. Last month I went home and couldn't believe the stench!
    Well, I finally found the culprit. I didn't think to look inside the icemaker. We didn't use it (no plumbing out there for it, and who wants fishy smelly ice?) Why on earth would DH put mackerel steaks in the icemaker?!?! There was plenty of room in the freezer for that little bag! But, at least it's clean and not smelly anymore! (I hope! I'll find out later when I go home, lol!)
