Jolly Good Fun! Not.

Mr. WhiMSy love & I had a hot date last night. We spent a couple sweaty our old house. It was not really fun at all. (Except for the part AFTER cleaning when we went to Zip's & I got a bacon double cheesburger, tater tots with tarter sauce & a butterscotch milkshake!) I hate cleaning. For reals. So, I tried to make it a bit more fun & we decided that we were a cleaning crew & needed a name. So, we named ourselves "The Dust Bunnies". OK. I named us, Mr. WhiMSy love just went along with it.

As we were cleaning I found myself singing a verse from a song in the movie "The Wizard of Oz" & it's called "The Merry Old Land of Oz". I decided this would be our theme song, or at least the verse I was singing would be our theme verse. And it has nothing to do with "dust" OR "bunnies". It goes like this: "We get up at twelve, And start to work at one, Take an hour for lunch, And then at two we're done, Jolly good fun!" I really appreciate the munchkins' work ethic.

We vacuumed. We wiped. We sanitized. We washed. We sprayed. We scrubbed. We swept. You'll never really realize how dirty your house is until everything is empty from its insides. Seriously, take a weekend & just remove all the belongings from your home & then stand in awe at the giant crumbs-n-things you were living with. So gross.
But now that the dirty deed is done, I am happy to come home to my NEW happy little pink house. And I open my door as little friends hippity-hop inside.... Welcome, little crumbs, to your new home.


  1. You're invited!!!!

    What: A Blog Party


    When: Now thru next Tuesday

    Why: Becuase I made it to 100 posts (wasn't sure I'd make it past 3)

    Time: My blog never sleeps, so come when you can.

    Who: You of course, bring a friend too.

    P.S.: I have a present to give away!

  2. I love your blog and just so you know I hate cleaning too.

  3. yes cleaning majorly SUUUUUCKS! and completely cleaning a place down to the corners after you have lived there for years is double sucky. :P
    ok and correct me if i am wrong and go ahead a curse me for being nit picky but.... i do believe that song was sung at the emerald city so therefore no munchkins would have been around. :P

  4. This was a funny post. I like your 'theme verse'!!

  5. Poor you. I quite like cleaning, actually. Although of course being on the farm we are always up to our eyes in crud so ...

  6. there is a surprise for you on my blog

  7. Oh, I loathe that part of moving, too. Last year, when my best friend moved, I demonstrated the depths of our friendship by sneaking in the day after the move & spending about 5 hours cleaning up the place. He was totally stunned. Worth every minute of grubbery. Blogger is now underlying grubbery to say it is not a real word, but I think it should be.

  8. I'll have to remember that munchkin song while I'm cleaning today.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
