It's Saturday

Part of my long range plan
to get myself out of my funk
is to clean my house

Yes ladies
it is as simple as that...

Not that I don't enjoy cleaning
oh wait
I really don't enjoy it

I do not live in a dirty house
it's just a little dusty right now
and cluttered...

I need to start fresh
like an artist

because I love a clean slate

and as much as I hate cleaning
I love the house when it is done
all sparkly and fresh

so I must log off for now
and start my journey
to the kitchen
and the bathroom
and the floors
the dreaded floors!

I tend to like this quote:

"My idea of housework Is to sweep the room with a glance"


after it is all said and done
I will soak in a tub of bubbles
make an amazing meal
and when our neighbors arrive tonight
will partake in a couple of these.

I love that first quote Lori!

I know just what you mean about housework....I have spent today doing it and really trying to do things that are on my to-do list....all the while thinking "life is just too short to spend it doing housework"!! ;)

Thank goodness I am going out to dinner enjoy those cocktails :)

I love the clean slate concept also. I live in such small places now that I can do housework in 10 minutes. So Now I am really fussy in doing the extra touches!
Happy weekend!

Oh Lori, that could have been me speaking. I hate it but love it when it's all done and I can go out and buy the best bunch of flowers as the finishing flourish ! I am trying desparately, to get straight, after a bit of decorating and it's taking ages, but I know that I will feel great when it's all done'
Enjoy dinner and your time with friends and, of course, that delicious looking cocktail. You'll deserve it after all that housework !!

Those quotes are priceless, Lori!

There is nothing better than a freshly cleaned house. I do my best cleaning when I get mad - so it's good for our house if someone gets me in that mood every so often! haha...

Enjoy your friends, cocktails and bubble bath - those are the important things...xxoo said...

I have that first quote written down in the project pile to make into a sign for the kitchen. I also have one that says "If a dirty kitchen is a happy kitchen then this one must be delirious!" They are waaaay on the bottom of the pile though. Good luck on the cleaning. Housework has to be one of the most unappreciated things in life besides motherhood.

Have a fantastic weekend my friend - clean house or not. Enjoy your visit and I will join you for cocktails - spiced wine at #2s soccer game tonight!

I always said I want a cook. I'll clean even toilets, just someone to cook for me would be Heaven! :O)

What a fun post -- cleaning house and decluttering is on my list too! Hope you're having a fun weekend!

I never tried that before. Maybe cleaning would take me out of a funk. The upside would be a clean house right??:)
