Monday Mottoes – #5

MottoI often say that when our family comes home, we hold hands and ease ourselves inside the front door lest the dust bunnies take us captive.  Honestly, I used to have time to keep up with the piles of stuff that naturally accumulate around me, but now, not so much.  Plus, our Scotties have long hair that doesn’t shed, and yet, inevitably, I spy wisps of dog hair, like tumbleweeds, gathering for conferences under the furniture.

If only I knew what they were saying.

Which brings us to today’s motto:  “Dust is what gives a home a warm and fuzzy feeling.”

I like the idea of an immaculate house, I really do.  Yet, I would rather spend time together as a family, than go nutsth over cleaning.  The kids have their few chores of helping here or there, but their idea of clean is not mine.

The idea of a cleaning lady is quite tempting.  I just don’t know that anyone could handle it.  The level of grit and grime has multiplied exponentially with the four teens and two dogs.

And I’m unsure which is worse, the kids or the canines.  But I’m not going to obsess about it.  I’d rather have a little dust and happiness than great cleanliness and ruining everyone’s life in the process.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could have both???

Happy Monday, everyone!
