Clean Schmean!

A fellow blogging mother (Such Simple Pleasures on my blog roll links) wrote a blog about her messy perfect house, so I found some quotes and instead of bombarding her comments with them I am posting them for her here. (must go read she’s awesome by the way!)

My home is not a place, it is people.
Lois McMaster Bujold, “Barrayar”, 1991

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing. ~Phyllis Diller, Phyllis Diller’s Housekeeping Hints, 1966

Our house is clean enough to be healthy, and dirty enough to be happy. ~Author Unknown

Don’t cook. Don’t clean. No man will ever make love to a woman because she waxed the linoleum – “My God, the floor’s immaculate. Lie down, you hot bitch.” ~Joan Rivers

(this one was super funny just had to throw it in!)

I am thankful for a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home…. I am thankful for the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby. ~Nancie J. Carmody

My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? ~Erma Bombeck

If the shelves are dusty and the pots don’t shine,it’s because I have better things to do with my time.~Author Unknown

Thank God for dirty dishes,they have a tale to tell;while others may go hungry,we’re eating very well.~Author Unknown
