To Vacuum or Not To Vacuum

I'm trying to get the house cleaned up and food cooked for the weekend. Yes, I get lazy on the weekends. I want to take it easy and not have to cook. Of course, the weekends are when everyone is home, and they're always asking me what there is to eat. So the no cooking plan doesn't work out too well for me, but I do try to do some cooking on Fridays so I don't have to do as much as I would otherwise.

Also, I was trying to decide if I should vacuum or not. The floor doesn't look too bad. It has definitely looked worse, but we have people coming over tomorrow, and I wouldn't want them to think I never clean my house. I had just decided that I would go ahead and run the vacuum cleaner, at least in the open areas, when I sat down for a minute to check my email, play Scrabulous, something. And that's when Tillie decided to jump in my lap, and then that wasn't good enough. She had to crawl all the way up on me and snuggle up on my chest. Did she know I was thinking of pulling the vacuum cleaner out? She was obviously trying to convince me not to. She doesn't like that thing at all. One look at it, and she disappears.

Now she's curled up at the other end of the couch sleeping. Sure, I could vacuum, but that would disturb the cat. Something is definitely wrong with me. I wanted this cat the way Misty needs diet pills - Not. At. All. And now I'm worrying about disturbing her and working my schedule around her. How did she move in and take over so quickly?

I have some baking to do. That doesn't make noise. I could always vacuum later, after the kids get home from school and one of them takes her into his/her room.


  1. Just like my neighbours cat, she spends as many hours if not more over here and I'm always taking her into consideration when I do stuff... I think these cats have power over us! lol

  2. You know if you vacuum then you would have to empty it and then dust would go flying all around and then you would have to's way too much of a bother. ;o)

  3. Ahahahaha - glad I could be of assistance for this post hehehehe

    Cleaning house? Nah, I got a better solution - I just make sure we never have company, then I don't have to clean :-)
