    So, its been hot here. Mind you not as hot as some of our southern freinds are dealing with but hot for here with our longer days, and I don't like heat. Today is cooler with a nice breeze and a few light rain showers. Perfect I thought, a good day to catch up with the house work. First task vaccume up a ton of dog and cat hair. I did the whole house and last but not least DH's office, a place I rarely enter....Didn't I manage to suck the 'O key' off his keyboard!!!!!Do ya think he might notice??? LOL

    Good job that was the last room to vaccume cause I have learn my lesson, I am going to go to the sewing room to fondle some fabric.
    By the way, I did take the vaccume bag out and found the key. But really...House work in never a good idea!

    Oh yes, I agree! When I do housework I normally end up making a mess or hurting myself. LOL

    Luckily keyboards are really cheap - $10-12. Can you get in out of the vacuum? They usually just snap back on.

    Oh yes I got the key out of the bag and its back on the keyboard. I wasn't happy at first but then the humor of it got to me and I needed to share!

    You really did have an adventure. Like they say, "No good deed goes unpunished."

    I just read an article online warning senior citizens to be careful not to over exert themselves in the hot weather. Today I'll gladly admit to being a senior citizen. Sounds like another good reason not to do housework. LOL

    I usually clean on Friday but I had too many errands to do today and didn't get it done. Not to worry...it isn't as though any one else will beat me to it.

    I have a saying that "My house is clean enough to be healthy, and dirty enough to be happy". I live by that rule!

    My mother used to say "We'll get all the work done first and then we can relax together" and then one day my husband said to her "But all the work NEVER gets done, so why don't we take some time NOW to relax together!" I'm sure housework expands to occupy all the time you have available, so I gladly set a limit (usually 10 minutes per day LOL) and then do whatever helps me to relax.

    O my!! Too funny!! After I finally stopping giggling thinking about watching the key disappear up the hose I thought, he must have known that key was loose. If he was my dh I just might have left the vacuum cleaner for him to fish it out if we wanted it back!!!

    I have a sign:

    Welcome to our happy home.
    Come in, sit down, converse.
    It doesn't always look like this,
    Sometimes it's even WORSE!

    That being said, if it gets done around here, William's usually the one doing it! ;)

    I agree.

    The saying goes "Housework if done right will kill you!" I don't want to take the chance.

    I'll quilt and let someone else do it that does a good job and doesn't mind it.:)

    Mine usually resides on the brink of disaster and the edge of discovery.
