My little confession

Photobucket
Friends, I have a problem. I have become a professional "vacuumer." I just looooooove to run my Hoover across the floor!

**Note** - I am not a perfectionist when it comes to being clean or neat, it is just vaccuuming that makes my heart sing.

Do you have a household chore like this? A chore that isn't a chore to you? Lately I sprinkled a little apple cinnamon scent into my vacuum bag and ... oh it has just been lovely! Everytime I vacuum, I wonder what that wonderful smell is. And then I remember, and I vacuum for a little bit longer then I need to.

**Second note** - I promise that if this gets any worse, I will seek help (although my husband thinks I am already at that point)

Please tell me I am not alone!

Hmmm... should we worry about you?

Seriously though, I have the same thing only it's with sweeping. The only 2 rooms in our house that aren't carpeted (besides the bathrooms) are the kitchen and foyer, and I am a rather compulsive sweeper of those rooms. And I love to mop them as well-- with my fantastic microfiber mop. It's so much fun that I save mopping for last on cleaning day as an incentive to get the rest of the work done first.

I think you get it from your mother. Dad and Neesie have noticed the problem. And thanks for the tip about sprinkling a nice scent. I've been using baking soda because of Fro.:-)

I used to love to vacuum... but then Molly came to live with us!!!
Molly is a 10 year old Lakeland Terrier who was a show dog in her young life...
they must have used a hair dryer ( or some such device) on her lots..
...because....

every time I start to vacuum, dry my hair, or do anything with a motor sound to it... she comes running and tries to attack the machine...
...to prevent her getting hurt (or tearing up the vacuum... I have to put her in her cage every time I start to vacuum the house...
... so...
it's not so much fun any more...

What?!?! You can sprinkle scents into a vacuum bag? How? And how have I missed this piece of knowledge?

Sheesh. I might just like vacuuming if it smelled yummy! :)

Really. I'm going to have to try this.

The chore I *love* (and there are frankly, not many that I do love), is loading the dishwasher. I hate the unloading, but I do love the loading. All tucked away and out of sight, ready to hum away until those dishes are clean! :)

That was a nice post :-)

I love vacuuming too, since I always start to sing and hum as soon as I start with it. The moment I unplug the vacuum cleaner and the house is quiet again I stop.

I think I inherited this from my Mom who used to sing ABBA songs with the vacuum cleaner.

The only chore I enjoy is cooking, altho I like the idea of putting scent in the vac bag. I have a dog so I cut up a flea collar and put that in my vac bag...just in case.

I've tagged your blog and if you'd like to play please visit my blog for the rules.

God bless!

Hmmm . . . I cannot think of any chore I like to do. Not dishes. Not sweeping. Not mopping. Not laundry, or cooking. I dunno, maybe that's one of the reasons I'm still single. Actually, maybe that's one of the perks of still being single!

Well, I think that is wonderful, Beverly. I need for some of this enthusiasm to rub off on me! I also don't enjoy household chores. I don't mind washing clothes. If I have some flowers, it inspires me to clean. I do enjoy reading blogs on keeping the home though.
