When I was looking for clip art of a woman cleaning a stove for my last blog, I discovered that, by and large, most of the photos which feature women cleaning show really happy smiling women doing a multitude of chores. Cleaning a toilet has never made me as happy as the woman on the left. In fact, I can’t think of a time when I beamed at the toilet brush.
Nor have I ever danced and sung with the mop.
My thought is that I’m not doing housekeeping correctly. I don’t smile while cleaning. I have always considered it a chore, one to be approached only when one cannot get through the hallway or the odor threatens to asfixiate all inhabitants. Although I don’t hate loading the dishwasher and hate washing clothes less than that, I cannot think of a single household chore I like–much less one that makes me smile or dance. In fact, about the only way I get through them is by having the television on so I don’t have to notice I’m cleaning
Which brings me to this question: what do you do to make housekeeping fun? I mean, while sober.

I dance while vacuuming. Seriously. You can see it on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCAogWklN20.
Okay–I’ll go look. Not sure I believe it but I’ll go look and get back to you.
Lots of fun, Kris. Thanks! HOWEVER, 1)most of the dancing was done without holding vacuum 2) None of them smiled 3) The woman in pink THREW her vacuum cleaner on the floor.
You are a riot, Jane. The only way house cleaning would make me dance is if I came home and someone had already done it for me!!!
Thank you! I do have ladies who come in every other week and I do dance when they leave! I always think, “I should keep it like this” but I don’t.
