Suzy Homemaker Decided to Visit

Yesterday Suzy Homemaker invaded my body and we began to tackle the ugh chores ; scrub the stove, clean the fridge and similar, and as well the regular everyday duties; dishes, sweep the floor, laundry.

The first ugh place place was the fridge. Science experiments were being to organize a protest at their neglect, so we unloaded everything shelf by shelf, fed the garbage can, and wash down the shelves. We were doing so well! The garbage can was no longer hungry, I could actually see what I needed, and the shelves were nice and clean! But, oh, oh! I was just about to put the last shelf back in, right on top of the vegetable drawer, when Ole' Suzy saw some grime along the upper part of the drawers. Oh, she couldn't put her nice clean shelf back on now! So carefully she started to lean the shelf up against the wall when....

When what she doesn't exactly know; only that she was left holding the little plastic cover of the shelf and the shelf was in a million pieces on the floor.

(sigh). So she swept up, and continued to sweep up through the day as the little tiny balls of glass made themselves known (they went under the fridge and the like) and went to work on dishes. Perhaps mass cleaning wasn't the best chioce of the day.

On to dishes then! We are down to the last milchig (milk)dish and....well, we don't have to wash the last dish, it has broken in two!

Next we tackle the fleshig (meat) dishes. Yes, having two sets of dishes can mean, at least in this house, that both sinks. Suzy homemaker is only a sometimes visitior to our home. So, once again, I'm finishing off the dishes and low and behold! A bowl has a crack, all the way through. Rachel Ann pictures a child being handed a bowl of soup and ending up with soup in the lap. This won't do.

Bowl feeds the garbage can.

Suz homemaker urges Rachel Ann on but Rachel Ann stuffs her in the garbage can.

And nothing else broke.

I don't think Suzy is going to be making a return appearance in the very near future.

Do you think she might be willing to come and visit my house? ;-)

God said he blesses the work of our hands...

Well she is banned from mine for the time being so you can have her; at least for the week. Just tell her to be less klutzy.

LOL...the cleaning bug bit me on house is good enough that I don't have to do any major cleaning for many months now. :)

Suzy came to me today, too! I polished the vacuum cleaner, and wiped down my cosmetics. Then I arranged all my daughter's books by size.

Clearly, I need to think about going back to work...

Suzy Homemaker never visits me for very long at a time. It is too bad she's so klutzy though :-) LOL

I prefer to just let the cleaning go.
Except that, when I clean, I make sure to pile the crap on one side of the room and the good stuff on the other side. That way, when spring comes, all, I need is a shovel!

I'm such a guy.

I'm on my second cup of coffee, it's 10:30 a.m. and Suzy has yet to make an appearance. I need her desperately, yet here I sit at this computer (again!) reading other people's blogs. I like the way your write, by the way.
