A few words

I hate vacuuming! It is like pushing and pulling a dead pig around the floor. I think I need a riding vacuum like the lawn mower. Maybe I will invent one.

 And before you say that I need a different vacuum, let me tell you that I have a Dyson, which rates pretty well up there, as far as vacuums go. 

There. Now I have had my say and I feel better. Thanks for letting me vent.

Giggling at you! :) Hubby has started vacuuming for me because I hate it so much. And now that we have wood floors it's a two-step process: vacuum and mop. This modern-day working woman cannot do both! I love my Dyson, though. That thing glides so smoothly and does a great job of picking up all the dog hair.

You're too funny!!
So I take it your floors don't get vacuumed very much? I just see it as one of those neccesary evils! Now dusting ---- that's another story!!

Hi Charlotte, dropped in from Tammy's blog for a visit and look around. My, Tammy was right in saying that you are a talented lady! As for housecleaning, I agree with your comments and can add something from a sign in a friend's home..."Housework will Mae you ugly" and of course none us want that. Please feel free to stop and visit our little blog anytime. We do enjoy back door and front porch drop ins.

There are so many more things that I hate worse than vacuuming!
Vacuuming means that the housework is almost done! It's the last thing I do.

I'll vacuum for you, will you wash my windows?

Oh, my friend, I do not like vacuuming either. Everything about it - the hauling, the dust, how time consuming it is. The only thing I like about it is when the floors look a bit nicer afterwards. hehe I hope you're having a good summer.

So funny - I'm reading this after spending the last few days really, really cleaning my house. Today I vacuumed and mopped. My vacuum cleaner is about 15 years old, an Electrolux that I love if I have to vacuum, but I hate lugging it around and it's starting to show it's age, with little things falling off, etc. I'd much rather be doing something else. :)
