Yeah, I'm Home For The Holidays All Right: Cleaning.


I couldn't come out to play yesterday - I was doing some of the pre holiday cleaning. All day. Hands and Knees stuff with a toothbrush.


Took care of the cobwebs. Although I could spray paint them gold and hang Christmas cards from them....
.
Speaking of cards, do your organized friends flaunt their skills and send out their Christmas cards on December 2nd? Show off's. Takes away from the whole spirit of the holiday, doesn't it? They might as well write "nah nah nah NAH nah nahhhhh!" in the thing. Merry Christmas my a%#. But I digress.



Did some window washing.

Scrubbed the floors.

.

While I retrieved dust bunnies from under the bed, Lucy the dog was licking me on the head and Layla the dog was laying on the bed, on my pillow, cleaning her nether areas.
.

The Mister, on the other hand, read a book. And took a nap. He likes to "stay out of my way." I know for a fact he finished that book last night and he should be pretty well rested, don't ya think, so I have his "to-do or else" list ready to roll.
.
Soon as he gets out of bed.
.
'Scuse me while I go test the smoke alarms...

Too funny! One of the good things about having company is that it makes us FINALLY clean the things we procrastinate on. I'm right there with you! Eeeew...how did my house get this dirty???

Shellmo said...

Your window washing skills are admirable! You may need to test the smoke alarms several times - see what the mister thinks. :-0

Lavinia said...

I'll be dropping by your place with my white glove sometime later today. Better make sure the place can pass muster by then. Me no like my glove getting dirty.

MuseSwings said...

Betsy - I know exactly why my house got dirty!

Shelly - I did - as soon as I scrape the Mister off the ceiling we'll get started on that list.

Livvy, do stop by - I could use the help. Leave the gloves in one of your birdbaths if'n ya knows whats good for ya. And bring that bottle of Bristol Cream while you're at it.

Tis the season...time to clean...I mean REALLY clean...whatever! I had company for 3 days, so I had to pre-clean, that should help, right?

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! I was so tempted to drive to my Mothers'(Lake Placid) for the holidays, eeewwww cold up here...you never know 'bout me.

Don't eat too much...yeah right!

what a busy little beaver you are , and a credit to society. get that old man of yours up off his ass and doing something, i firmly believe in 'share and share alike'.except for money, 'what's mine is mine and what's his is also mine'. happy thanksgiving to you and yours.

MuseSwings said...

If you do go, Sharon, bundle up! Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

hahaha, Muse! Can just picture you! As Erma Bombeck once said, house cleaning WILL kill you! I fear for you! :))

btw, no, I don't have a biker in my life...
only my sources do! Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!

MuseSwings said...

I admire Erma and Phyllis Diller for their house cleaning advice. Phayllis suggested keeping your dust neat - noone will notice it's there if there aren't finger prints in it.Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well!

Could you drop by my house and do the windows. It looks like you have quite a professional operation there.

willow said...

We're on the level. I'm finally finished with all the cleaning. WT was officially handed his "to-do or else" list today.

Marie Reed said...

I think he needs to be doused with water! Is that his shirt on fire! Get out that bucket:)

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

Uh oh, I'm one of those December 2nd people ... nah nah nah nah nah

HAR HAR!

BTW, do you rent out?? :o) We need to clean tomorrow. [sigh]

It's almost time for loads of turkey! yum yum ♥ ∞

Lavinia said...

Musey, I've been standing on your front doorstep, knocking and waving my white glove in the air, for the past half hour. Are ya gonna answer the door or will you force me to use my medieval-era battering ram, which I handily brought along in case just such a situation cropped up?!

Janeen said...

Oh My! I need you! I'm hosting the holiday and I am soooo not ready! I need a wife! Someone who will clean my house, run errands, etc while I'm working all day! ha ha

Thanks for the laughs... as usual! You're so fun!

Lavinia said...

Cindi Lisa, its raining out here and my aqua-net sprayed hairdo is totally and completely ruined. My head looks like a fallen souffle. I didn't think it rained in Florida. Except during the rainy season. I can hear much feasting and merrymaking through the door and I guess your doorbell doesn't work. The rain has turned my immaculate white glove a sodden shade of grey. I'm leaving now. Yeah, I mean it this time. So its o--kay to open the door....really, honestly! see ya!!!

Hello Mary Lou said...

LOL!!!!!!!You are so funny! Happy Thanksgiving.

MuseSwings said...

Alright Lavinia - how do you know it did actually rain today AND that my door bell doesn't work? Hasn't worked for 4 years, actually. Come on in and drop those white cloves right here in the Good Will box please. There'll be none of that unless I get to check your house! It is cleaner than it has been in a long time and that works for me. Don't look under there!!! Close that closet door!!! Don't look under that!! Sit down and pour some of the Brisrol Cream, please.

The rest of youse ladies - I can't come by and help you out just yet - I have to watch the turkey and make sure it thaws. A watched pot never boils but a stared at turkey will thaw. I'll send Lavinia over as soon as she's had a few more drinks.

MuseSwings said...

gloves. white g-l-o-v-e-s. not cloves.

Anna Lefler said...

OMG, story of my life! I've been cleaning like crazy around here...and it still looks like a dump!

* sigh *

Now, who's gonna cook that turkey???

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
