Housework Should be Made Simple
Some day I'm going to get rid of my dust rags, vacuum cleaner, mops and brooms, and buy a turbo-powered leaf blower, one that'll swoosh every item the kids have stuffed under the sofa and loveseat right on out the door. It will also be powerful enough to clean out from behind the rest of the furniture and appliances that I figured didn't really need cleaning cause I couldn't see back there anyway. It'll suck up those dust bunnies up near the ceiling in 2.2 seconds and have gentle attachments for wiping snotty noses and changing diapers.
I reckon until that day comes I'll have to keep on doing things the old fashioned way,,,when I get around to it. I did get around to a few things yesterday,,,
I took down the Christmas Tree and packed everything in boxes that I packed so well that I can't move them, so they wait there patiently against the dining room wall for the Man to get around to moving them to the closet. (mind you, they might be there for awhile since the Man and the Son have gone on a hunting trip from which they'll bring home a shitload of dirty laundry! It's rather nice that Jerri has to do the Son's part now (big grin).
I vacuumed the living room, dining room, and master bathroom. That worked up a sweat and I had to get into that economy-sized bottle of ibupro before moving on to the next chore.
I swept the kitchen the first time and then Jerri came over and did it the second and third.
I washed and dried 1 load of laundry and put most of it away, the rest will still be there when the urge hits me to get to it.
The rest of the afternoon I played and watched TV cause some of the munchkins came to visit and I played a little with my camera.
