Celebrate Me

October 3rd is National Crappy House Day! (Good thing it’s a Saturday so you don’t have to explain to your boss why you can’t go into work…) Not only is it my birthday (for reals), but it’s also my blog’s birthday as well. What a coincidence! (Hey, that’s joincidence with a “c”…)

Two years ago, today, I decided to channel my narcissism and launched this spectacular blog you’re reading right now. I opened up my house and my head to people I don’t know and all sorts of stuff fell out. And you guys seem to find that stuff interesting, which really appeals to my inner attention whore.

Whether you’ve been with me since the beginning, or you’re a new follower, I thought today was a good day to say thanks for bothering to read what I write. Because if it weren’t for you, well, I’d still be writing this blog, but it’s more fun for me if people actually read it.

And if you feel like celebrating my special day, feel free to send me a card. Or a stove. Whatever.

Subscribe and I'll love you forever.

    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you (think Stevie Wonder singing it in his inimitable way). Same to the blog. Hope you have a lovely day filled with joy and people you love. ❤️

    Happy birthday, and let us know where to send the stove! Gas, electric, or dung-burning?

    • My Crappy House says:

      My cooking is already pretty bad. I can’t see making it even worse with dung-burning…

    Happy Birthday!! Happy Anniversary to your blog! It is great, really enjoy the twisted humor. My birthday was a few days ago and my husband, being the romantic that he is, got me a card that said this:
    “May your day be as beautiful as a unicorn farting rainbows”. I was touched.

    What kind of a stove do you want? My cousin Angelo works on the docks. He can get you a nice one for free.

  16. Debbie says:

    Happy Birthday! I love your blog and what you are doing to your “not so” Crappy House.
    I look forward to your next home project.

  17. Judy says:

    Happy birthday!
    Here’s to another year of great blogging while your house gets less crappy!
    Then you’ll have to rename it…..”My ex-crappy house” perhaps?

    • My Crappy House says:

      Yeah, I don’t know what I’ll do when my house isn’t crappy anymore. That will be so weird… lol

  18. Sharon Turner says:

    Happy Birthday to you both! Why would I send you a stove … didn’t you just buy one? How many do you need?

    • My Crappy House says:

      Who said I bought one? I didn’t buy one! I know which one I want though… Just one…

  19. Tina says:

    Happy Birthday/ Anniversary! You inspire me.

    • My Crappy House says:

      Thank you! That’s an awesome compliment! I’m rooting for my couch too… Hoping it’s able to survive Egor…
