"There are three ways to get something done: Do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it." -- Monta Crane
Somehow, I don't think that 'forbidding' strategy would've worked with me as a child, but you never know. . .
A big thanks to MiSC for today's quote!
Hey, MessyMimi and DriverMom--can I still use the excuses about "abhoring" a vacuum or "waiting for one I can ride on" if I can't actually move a vacuum cleaner thru my apartment? Because I hate to let good excuses go to waste. . .
I want my loved ones to remember great things like how much I loved animals or how I knew all the best shortcuts thru the city during rush hour or that I knew all of Julia Sugarbaker's best speeches from Designing Women by heart--not how they had to spend precious time sorting out what was left of my life after I was no longer living it. ... disorganizeddragon

If "one day" was an actual day on the calendar, my to-do list for that day would probably be 10,000 lines long . . .

MM, your last quote is the story of my life! If I had a dollar for everytime I used work as an excuse for not cleaning my house, I could hire someone to clean my house!
Puppybox, your quote brought back some great memories. My grandfather loved that quote and used it often to explain away the condition of his study. (Hmm, wonder why my apartment looks exactly like his study used to look?)
"Tell the negative committee that meets inside your head to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP."--Ann Bradford
"I'm not avoiding housework. In fact, I run into it all the time. We're just not speaking to each other right now."
