Day 12

12. Something you never get compliments on.

My housekeeping.

I have told you before that housework makes you ugly and with my looks I can't take any chances. But the fact of the matter is, I hate to clean. I like it when it is clean and tidy, but I hate doing it. So that's why it is a group activity here at Casa de Cuckoo. Many hands make a job go faster.

PS. We all went to bed early last night with the last plague brought home by the grands.....I promise a pix will be taken tonight and posted tomorrow. I know, I know.


  1. ~plague...now that sounds scary...i wihs you all healing blessings and the plague be gone...as for housecleaning...do you think it is possible fo rme to borrow your little phrase "it makes you ugly!!" can i pull that one over on my husband!?! wishing you well and blessings be with you all~

  2. Sorry you are under the weather. Seems to be a common theme with people these days.

  3. Ugh, I hear ya....hate doing it too, but fortunately, I married into a house that came with a cleaning lady once a week. Now I just do some picking up but with it just being SM and me (occasionally, stinky Ian), there's not much to pick up.


  4. I'm thinkin you & I are the bravest people in the world sharing all of our internal voices with the world! LOL But throwing it all out into the universe & up into the heavens can also be very empowering. I too my friend, HATE to do house work. I like to tidy, just not really clean. My sad answer to this dilema is I hire a house cleaner about once every 2 months to really get in there & do a Deep Cleaning. Do we really have that kind of extra money, no. Should I be doing it myself, yes. Do I, no. So this works for us, at least for now & maybe when I grow up I'll learn to love to clean...but I think not!
    Smiles Friend,

  5. Haha, love that - housework makes you ugly. Totally taking that too!!

    I am with ya on the housework!! When I was a young gal I was a bit obsessive about everything being clean, neat and in order all the time. Now? Not so much. Plus with blogging about food, seems impossible to stay on top of anything, much less even the kitchen!!

    I have not managed to get sick with the weather change yet, so I am steady trying to get in advance of it with a cocktail of Alka Seltzer Plus Cold and Airborne! I'll be out and about with my BFF tomorrow so wish me luck!

    Hope y'all get to feeling better.

  6. Now you and I are kindred souls on the house work.
    I don't mind doing it, but there are so many other things I would rather do.
    Who has time for it?
    And if someone is coming over to judge my house work then they can just stay home!!

    it makes you ugly, lol, I love that.


You are always welcome to comment on my thoughts and I love them all......
