I don't do windows because ...
I love birds and don't want one to run into a clean window and get hurt.
I don't wax floors because ...
I am terrified a guest will slip and get hurt then I'll feel terrible ( plus they may sue me.)
I don't mind the dust bunnies because ...
They are very good company, I have named most of them, and they agree with everything I say.
I don't disturb cobwebs because ...
I want every creature to have a home of their own.
I don't Spring Clean because ...
I love all the seasons and don't want the others to get jealous.
I don't pull weeds in the garden because ...
I don't want to get in God's way, HE is an excellent designer!
I don't put things away because ...
My husband will never be able to find them again.
I don't do gourmet meals when I entertain because ...
I don't want my guests to stress out over what to make when they invite me over for dinner.
I don't iron because ...
I choose to believe them when they say "Permanent Press".
I don't stress much on anything because ...
"Type A" personalities die young and I want to stick around and become a wrinkled up crusty ol' woman!!!!
REMEMBER: A CLEAN HOUSE IS THE SIGN OF A BROKEN COMPUTER!!!
This year, I resolve to:
Always replace the gas nozzle
before driving away from the pump.
I will always "check for paper"
when leaving the restroom.
I will try to drive closer to the speed limit.
I will keep an extra safe distance when driving behind police cars.
I will no longer park the BMW
next to fire hydrants.
and never again will I try to diffuse an explosive device with a known practical joker.
Have a Safe and Happy New Year!
