Wishful Wednesday: Chores

'I wish' .... I never had to clean the entire house ever again!

I despise cleaning the house. That's why I have maids. They come every other Monday and it's wonderful. I love walking in the house on Monday afternoon and smelling the nice, clean house. My girls are very trustworthy and they do a great job. If you live in the Memphis area and you're looking for housekeepers, let me know.

I think my least favorite rooms to clean are the bathrooms and the kitchen. Gross! I don't know how you even clean a shower. We have hardwood floors on the first floor of our house and keeping them clean is a task in themselves.

I am not very good at sweeping or mopping. I don't think I hold the broom or mop correctly. Or maybe I am just lazy.

Our vacuum is ok, but I would like to upgrade to the $500 Dyson (one day). Does anyone have one? Is it really as great as it looks? My mom loves her's.

As for Wishful Wednesday, I just booked our family vacation to Cancun this morning!!! I am so excited! I've been all around Europe, to Hawaii and Tijuana (yuck!), but I have never been to the pretty part of Mexico. I can't wait. The trip is my annual birthday trip/family vacation. You gotta love being the only child. Yay!!! We leave in less than a month! Adios!!!

Yes...the Dyson is worth twice that much. It is amazing!!

My husband used to do all the vacuuming and now i actually do some too LOL. All because of the Dyson. We have the Dyson ball, love that one.

Oh you are so lucky to have a maid! I'd love to have one just to do the yucky jobs that no one else wants to do!

WOW must be nice!!! I have persuaded my husband to do the vacuuming....that's as close to a maid as it comes! (haha, he would die if he read this comment!) Enjoy your family/birthday vacation, sounds great!

I wish I could hire a maid to clean my house, it seems that is all I do!!

I love my Dyson Animal. We went through two other vacuum cleaners in our first three years of marriage. They just couldn't keep up with the boys and the way they shed! The Dyson is wonderful!!

Hey - I am actually interested in your cleaning gals - will you send me their name and all on FB so that I can call them and see what they would charge to do my house??

Thanks!!!

Ive never heard of anyone sharing in my lack of sweeping skills. I am horrible with the broom.. I feel like I am doing nothing productive.

Hey Girl! I just ran across your blog from another one. What a small world!!! I have the Dyson Animal also and used the 20% off coupon at Bed, Bath and Beyond. The only thing that I don't like about it is that to get underneath really low things you have to change out the attachment, but would buy another one in a heartbeat! Hope to be at the Alumni Christmas Party next month, but right now I am scheduled to work.:( Hopefully I can swap. See you!
