what i SHOULD be doing.

dear husband...
please don't read today's entry. really. stop now.

(and if you do...even though i told you not to...) it's all a lie. i made it up to make my bloggy reader(s) laugh. really. i actually cleaned and polished the kitchen floor, did dishes, did laundry, cleaned the windows, shampooed the carpet, cleaned out all the drains in the bathroom, organized the children's sock drawers...this morning. this afternoon...i did more. i don't want to bore you with the details.

i should be cleaning up my house.
i should be organizing my neglected drawers.
i should be taking a nap.

what i AM doing...

picking up the house here and there...
checking email,
playing with the kitties,
stepping OVER girly messes (damn, little people and their zoo/house/park/accessories),
drinking my third fourth cup of coffee,
tinkering around with pictures on photo program...

deciding that i should move onto organization of aforementioned drawers...
putting on the white strips that have probably expired and will now turn my teeth purple (but i like purple!),
deciding that they taste gross and brush them off,
wonder if having an iced coffee would completely irradicate any potential whitening that HAD occurred?? decide it doesn't matter...they were a sample...i didn't buy them. therefore, not a waste of money.
think about blogging about the organization (that i'm planning on doing) and go get camera,
take a picture and decide it just looks stupid anyway,
find earplugs in a drawer (and wonder why i haven't been using these all along...i could have been sleeping for the past 4 years!),
find cough medicine with codeine (aka...sleep),
find (used) pregnancy test from last pregnancy (taken approximately on Sept 5, 2006)...what the hell was i saving that for? seemed appropriate at the time...needed proof...but now?? it's just a stick i peed on...but i still feel guilty throwing it out...took a picture of it with camera.
decided to blog about what has occurred thus far in the day, because i won't get to it after picking up the kids from daycare (aka...sanity)

wrote this post about what i SHOULD be doing...
or what i've done thus far.

gotta go. i've got a lot of scrambling to do. and for the record...I HATE CLEANING.

I WANT A CLEANING LADY...or MAN...i'm not discriminatory.

I love this post!

I'm seriously thinking about getting a cleaning person.

I found one for $16 an hour. I'm trying to figure out what I can cut out of the grocery budget to pay for her.

Meat maybe?

I'm visiting from AllMediocre (instead of cleaning the breakfast dishes) and boy, do I hear you! Getting someone to do the cleaning has been a huge lifestyle improvement for us.

I NEVER clean. I also never cook. My husband picked a winner!

Also visiting from AM - and laughing at this post and Christy. My husband also picked a winner. He just kind of sighs and shakes his head. Sort of resigned.

HAHAHA oh well...

I just fired my cleaning lady and then seriously regretted it! So we have a new one that started last week. Can we afford it, not at all. But I will cut coupons to pay for her. It is amazing!!

I'm new here - just came over from All Mediocre! Had to comment - I'm another mom of 2 girls... 5 & 3.

I empathize with the procrastinating - and with the need of a cleaning person. They are NOT over rated!

Nice to meet you.

Great post--I procrastinate about cleaning the house every day. Right now I should be loading the dishwasher and vacuuming, but commenting is so much more fun!

I don't have kids but still dream of a cleaning person.
Neighbor Cristine (and Lucky Dog who furrifies the house!) :)

This is a great post. I wish the cleaning lady was like the tooth fairy. I would consider pulling my teeth out, well maybe i would.
