Get out of my way, I’ve got a vacuum!

I can’t tell you how much I am digging this “all my kids in school” thing. You should know by now that housework is not my favorite thing to do. I’m not one of those lame people who says that and then spends all her time cleaning anyway. No, I really, truly hate cleaning my house. I avoid it as much as possible. I have to tell you, though. Cleaning your house when the kids are all gone is great. Like, super amazingly great.

I turn my ipod up to 11 and get to work with a garbage bag and scrub brush (with a little dancing thrown in for good measure).

Yesterday I gave the kitchen a big fat spanking while I listened to The Ting Tings (highly recommended music for cleaning and generally getting your groove on).

The house actually stayed clean for a whole two hours until the hordes returned. But two hours is good. Normally as I clean there is a wake of people pulling things out and tossing toys everywhere. So you can see how even a few hours of cleanliness is a miracle.

  1. Oh how I long for the day of clean and it stays clean. Of course, I didn't have it before children, so don't know if I'll have it after they're gone.

  2. I am going to have to give them a listen. Because I have found that good cleaning music can be substituted for good packing music!

  3. I also am a fan of The Ting Tings, Gwen likes the song "that's not my name". I would love undisturbed cleanliness for a few hours. I swear that I just finish sweeping up the kitchen floor just in time to see Harrison crumble something or other on the opposite side of the room. Maybe I should see if I can do something with mine for a few hours of the day.

  4. I agree with everything in this post. Especially the part about the kids being in school.

    And the Ting Tings – one of my favorite albums!

  5. I had to look this post up so I could create a Pandora Ting Tings station and get motivated to get off my computer and clean my house while the kids are at camp.
