A Futile Wish

They make frost-free freezers, self-cleaning ovens, irons and coffemakers, why can't they come up with a self-cleaning house?  I don't necessarily want mine to be ready for a photo shoot by "House Beautiful", but I always pictured myself living in a house where I could welcome guests at any moment if someone just decided to drop by.  The reality?  I need at least 3 hours notice, and that only gives me enough time to transfer the clutter to somewhere the potential guest(s) won't be.


  1. I am so with you! Except that I need 24 hours notice. Probably because my kids are littler, and go behind me making more messes as I clean up. Someday.....

  2. Mine make messes behind me too; I'm just faster at shoving the mess into someplace that has a door I can close. LOL.
