cleaning day

our house in the middle of our street... :
monday is my cleaning day.
sweeping & mopping.
laundry washed & put away.
i have every intention of cleaning all the bathrooms
{today only 2 were successfully cleaned}
dusting... everything.

typical cleaning day chores.

i remember way back then when everything was true and when
we would have such a very good time such a fine time
such a happy time
& i remember how we'd play simply waste the day away
then we'd say nothing would come between us two dreamers:

lately i have had a little tiny helper.
anytime the vacuum comes out,
she gets tickled with excitement.
insists on helping me.

she helps by repeatedly putting her hand over the opening of the hose.
over & over & over again.
so cute.


when i clean house,
the song "our house" by madness
is on repeat in my mind.
over & over & over again.
{this song reminds me of my childhood for some reason.
not sure why, but it does}
i decided it was time to add this classic to my itunes collection.
so i bought it today for .99 cents.
{thank you itunes store}

nora & i jammed,
& cleaned.

happy monday.

our house, is our castle and our keep
our house, in the middle of our street.

I think you had that song set on your phone as home's caller id...that was before you set it to something rude!

As soon as the vacuum comes out at my house (sad to admit that it is almost once a day...) Kash goes to his room and comes back with his little lawn mower and follows me around. I love it :)Tiny helpers are soooo much fun.

That is the cutest little house cleaner ever!

Use her while she wants to. :) That is so funny because last night Shane and I were looking at all these 80 songs and telling Gavin how good they were. And Madness was one of them. You have good taste!
