What a Mess

Today little kid has already dumped out a bag of goldfish crackers (all over my floor), crushed a granola bar into smithereens and threw it (all over my floor) and brought a small bucket of dirt in from the back deck and dumped it (all over my floor).

I guess this means I really *have* to vacuum today. I hate the vacuum. I thought for sure if Mr. Ashley got me the purple Dyson that would change, but I was wrong. It's still loud and I have to plug it in and push it around and I just hate it.

Someone really needs to be watching these kids.

I need a nanny and a maid, too. I hate vacuuming, but mostly because I hate the work involved before I get to actually vacuum. You know, the picking up all of the toys and stuff from the floor so I can actually see the carpet. Once I actually get to the actual vacuuming, I enjoy it (as much as a lazy mom can enjoy cleaning). I don't know if it is because I love my Dyson so much or if it is because the cleaning is almost over.

Get a Roomba girl!

Really? The purple Dyson didn't do it for you? It did for me! I love to vacuum now, and watch that thing fill up with dust and dog hair.

I hate vacuuming! I hate dragging the big heavy thing around and I don't do a very good job when I do it...

Wait a minute...getting a purple Dyson doesn't make you want to vacuum more??? Maybe I should stop nagging my husband for one.

Hmmm. This must be some sort of youthful conspiracy. I have dirt, goldfish, and granola on my floor too. Oh, and a few pieces of shredded paper from a destroyed crayon drawing.

You seriously need a roomba. It will change your life.

Damn Ashley! I am getting my new Dyson today and even bought the smell good floor powder to commenmorate the event and you had to go and ruin it for me!

I like to turn the kids loose with a Dust Buster and one of those lightweight vacuums - they're good for crumbs and other kitchen messes. And if they miss a spot, I ask my Nanny/Housekeeper to clean up the rest. :) I'm spoiled.

Vacuums are always better when someone else is pushing them.

I'm over this whole cleaning thing. I have a maid coming by at 5 to scope out my pit and she will be here to clean on Thursday. Fidel thinks this is a one time thing but I'm willing to wiener gobble at least 5 times a week if I can have a maid.

You can always use my kid:

He loves to use that stupid Dust Buster... God love 'em.

Jennifer - 5 times a week?? Oh no, my maid doesn't cost me THAT much!! Ashely - doesn't Mr Ashley ever vacuum?? ;o) Maybe BK needs to learn to vacuum.
I like the Roomba idea, great in theory but my dogs would chew it to bits within days. I mean, DD's Little People Airplane no longer has any passengers, guess they are quite the tasty snack. Methinks a roomba may be just as tasty!

I have the purple Dyson. It's awesome to watch someone else using it.
