Cleaning Woes

As any of you who have EVER read one of my posts realizes, I really do not like housework. Particularly vacuuming, mopping, dusting, cleaning bathrooms. I don't mind doing the laundry so much, but am not a great fan of ironing, either.

Yesterday, I decided that the spots on the living room carpet had to be dealt with. In my misplaced enthusiasm, I also decided to move all the furniture out and REALLY do a bang up job. I must say, it does look good now, but I may be paying with a sore back and muscles for the rest of my life.

Of course I picked the most humid day of the year to do this little deed, so between running the shampooer, the air conditioner at arctic temperatures and fans to try and dry the carpet, I am not sure it might not have been more cost efficient to pay for someone to come in and do the job.

All that remains is the final vacuuming and replacing the furniture...I shall ask for help today, trust me!

Those of us who share your aversion for domestic chores, feel your pain. I would have done the same thing, lol. Then, been miserable for the next week, while going to the chiropractor's.

I especially can't stand ironing... I've decided it's bad for your back, but can't find anyone to do it for me, lol.

No chiro-cracker as my sister calls 'em, but lots of ibuprofen! I'm looking at my ironing board even as I type this thinking, I really need to press a pair of capris...maybe next week!
