One Moment Please...

I love blogging.
It makes me happy to create a post that makes you smile.

I do not love cleaning.
It does not make me happy to empty the garbage.

But I do love a clean house.
So I have a new rule.

No blogging until Bungalow'56 is neat and tidy,
and surprise guest ready.

I will be back later this afternoon... or evening, depending on how efficient I am;
to write a post I normally write first thing in the morning.

Sometimes I need to be a mom and give myself the hairy eyeball.
Sometimes I need to give myself a good kick in the pants.
Sometimes I need a cleaning lady.

Sometimes I live in a dreamworld.

Sometimes I procrastinate....

Sometimes I don't know when to stop ; )

Love ya like chocolate,

PS house is not stinky or anything.  I'm just trying to prioritize.
       Aren't the flowers above pretty?
       K gave them to me as a thank you for her pictures.
       The purple reminds me of her dress. Pin It


  1. good luck! I need that same kick.

  2. Great rule Dana - I think I need to implement that one as well. But, blogging is so much more fun!

  3. Well if you must. Happy Cleaning. See ya later!!

  4. *sigh*

    Well, I can't say that I don't understand.

    But clean fast, ok? Otherwise we'll miss you.

  5. Cleaning you say? May the force be with you.

  6. Rules? Cleaning?
    I didn't know they belong together with words like "dreamworld" and "procrastinate" (2 of my favorites)!
    First time I've read your blog.... something resonated. Thanks.

  7. laughing because i have the same little battles and pep talks with myself...soooooo familiar. good luck on the cleaning!

  8. YIkes! My house is a mess and we have company coming today! I had to come upstairs to put something away...and the computer called to me. Of course...I gave in!
    Back to work for me too!

  9. Ah, this is exactly my "problem." I would rather write than anything, so I delay the cleaning as long as possible. Good luck with your new rule. Just remember, rules are meant to be broken.

  10. Ok. This post made me laugh out loud. (Probably because I am taking a break from cleaning to read it!)

  11. Yes, that prioritizing throws cold water on my blogging, for sure. :v)

  12. Sure your house isn't stinky, LOL ;) You crack me up.


Comments are like the applause after a show! Yay clapping!
