stalking hanging out at this blog called White Trash Mom. And there is this thing that they are doing called Trashy Thursday, Housework for lazy people.
And oh em geeeee…am I a lazy person.
I’m so lazy, in fact, that this post is short, sweet and to the point.
At my humble abode. Before any company comes. Whether it be for Passover seder. Or my husbands stupid poker games. Or…my fabulous 40th birthday bash…
We take garbage bags.
Anything we can find that holds stuff.
And we fill them up with all the shit that is laying around the house.
Where they are stored, for all eternity (or until my sister comes over to make me clean) in my bedroom.
With the door tightly shut.
I pray that no one goes upstairs and mistakes my closed bedroom door for the bathroom.
Because entry into my room…is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
That…my friends. Is how a truly lazy person gets her house in order before ANY company is stupid enough to risk their lives by coming to my house.
Cleanliness tip brought to you by ME. Because I think you should know how to do it. And do it right.
Bawhahahaha! I am so glad that this practice of cleaning has not died out. Sometimes it gets SO bad here, that I forget where I stored the boxes of stuff I tried to hide at the last minute. How many times have you “dusted” with a wet washcloth just before company arrived? And how many mirrors were cleaned with a hot breath and your arm?
BTW, sometimes I think having a garage is more of a curse than a help.
And this is precisely why my home office is such a wreck. It’s the only room on the ground floor with a door that closes. Hence = dumping ground. *sigh* But it does make for fast clean up of everything else.
I have been known to do the same thing. Only my place is a 1 bedroom condo and mostly everything gets thrown onto the bed or in a drawer/cupboard somewhere. We don’t even have a utility closet I can use.
My house is currently for sale. Which means it *has* to look good and they *have* to go in every room.
It’s the worst thing to ever happen to me!
I spray lysol (so it smells like I’ve cleaned!).
I’m so lazy… when I got home today my hubby wanted to clean so we don’t have to do it this weekend. So I started to cry… ’cause that’s the best way to get out of house work. So now he’s cleaning and I’m on the patio drinking wine.
I’m visiting from SITS. You are hilarious! I’m reading all your older posts now 🙂
The Royal Barrister says
Rumor had it that once formally organized you would stay organized. Despite 38.5 years of evidence to the contrary, I once again fell for that line, hoping beyond hope that you meant it this time. A looooonnnnggg day devoted to the loving act of cleaning out your closet…for what? I ask! Maybe one day I’ll stop falling for it? The question is, will that be before or afer your house is condemned?
