Thrilling you with tales of cleaning.

27 October 2010

So today, you don’t get a real post.  Only a post that is a fake post telling you I’ll be back for a real post soon.

Why am I slacking on the post today?

My inlaws and my mother are coming to my house for Halloween.  And that means my house has to be clean.  Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest clean.

Which incidentally is the nickname we had for my mother while we were growing up.  Sometimes we still slip and call her Joan.

It’s not like she beat us with wire hangers, but she did wake us up at 7 am on Saturday mornings blasting the OSU fight song until we got out of bed and cleaned.  In my book, that is surely as bad as getting beaten with a wire hanger, right?  No?  Well it sure felt as bad when you were 16 and none of your friends wanted to spend the night on Friday night because they all knew what was coming.

So, I’m cleaning. 

Well, really I’m writing this fake post when I should be cleaning.

And you wonder why I miss having a cleaning person?  I would MUCH rather be playing with you guys.

You seriously crack me up! Best of luck on the cleaning today and if it makes you feel any better I would SO rather be cleaning than studying for my Nursing exam! Hopefully we'll see ya around on Sunday!

I'm so glad my mom wasn't the only one making us get up and clean on Saturday mornings. I was so happy on the Saturdays I had volleyball! She at least gave us until 8 though...7, man that IS rough!

I want a cleaning person. So badly.

Have fun cleaning! I know the feeling when the in-laws come, you want everything to be perfect. And it will be, I'm sure!
