I really should vacuum.
But if I vacuum and don’t bathe the dog, the house will still smell like dirty dog. So if I vacuum, I have to bathe the dog.
If I bathe the dog, I’ll have to clean the bathroom.
If I clean the hall bathroom, I may as well clean all the bathrooms.
If I clean all the bathrooms and vacuum, I should probably mop the tile.
If I mop the kitchen, I should wipe down the cabinets.
If I’m getting the wood cleaner out, I should do the banister as well.
If the banister is clean, I should clean the paw marks off of the front door.
I think I’ll go shopping.

Yep – I can relate to the dirty dog, and vacuum, and mopping and…SHOPPING.
Also love “If you give a pig a pancake” 🙂
I did end up bathing the dog, vacuuming and cleaning the bathroom that day. Then I went shopping. 🙂
So true! It’s such a chain reaction of things to do. Thanks for sharing!
I must confess, I did end up vacuuming, and bathing the dog, and cleaning the hall bathroom. But then I stopped. 🙂
Hmmm, my husband is watching the Packers (he grew up in Wisconsin), so I guess I can just go back to reading…
And good point about the pay 🙂
Well, I guess your husband went to bed happier than mine. 🙂 I guess we’ll just have to have a rematch in the NFC Championship game!
I like Amy’s response. I cleaned yesterday and didn’t get it all done and I am too worn out today!
I been a slacker lately. I admit it. What’s going to happen, a pay cut??
I just drink wine & watch TV 🙂
The Saints are playing tonight, so no one (Mr. Wonderful) will notice if I shirk my duties again. 🙂
Marriage is bliss?
