Most days you will find me in dirty paint speckled clothes. I’m either sanding and or painting something. No pictures please, cause it ain’t pretty.
No matter how much I like to be outside, inside still has things that have to be done.
Since Jack has arrived, I have been on laundry duty. Baby clothes, baby linens and even baby diapers. Yep you heard me right cloth diapers. You remember my granola daughter? There will NOT be any Jack Wissinger poopy diapers littering up our landfill. Nope not one.
With all the baby duties, some of the other household chores have suffered.
Vacuuming is big in our house.
Let me show you why?
Big Hairy Dog aka JR Kern
12 year old semi psychotic yellow Labrador Retriever. Sheds like a beast
Little Hairy dog aka Fender Wissinger
5 year old slightly hyper French bulldog/jack Russell mix. Little bitty black hairs.
They will sit and stare at their food bowls until someone says “go!”
I recently made a commission.
Did I get a pedicure? no
Did I buy some new clothes or that new pair of shoes I wanted? nope
Do I go out for an exciting evening on the town? Not even close
I bought a robot vacuum!!!
Her name is Helen.
I love her and to top off an already good thing, she was the Amazon deal of the day. Half price baby!!!!
She is scheduled and I never have to tell her twice.
Sometimes she gets stuck but I’m a natural helper so I’m good with her shortcomings.
JR could care less that she’s there. He just watches her drive by.
Fender hates her. He growls and barks and tries to be intimidating. I’ve already told Fender that if there is choice, he will lose.
Helen allows me to feel just a little like a Queen every day as I watch her sweep away the dog hair. It might not be a big deal to most but it allows me to spend some extra time with this guy.
