I make the FLY LADY cringe

I sweep my kitchen floor every day.


Every single day, I sweep right past this clear plastic looking thing.
I also sweep around some plastic looking grapes that are underneath the breakfast room's table.
This has been going on for WEEKS.


I honestly have no clue.
Surely, someone is going to claim these items, right?
They are going to pick them up JUST LIKE THEY BROUGHT them in here.
They are going to pick them up and take them back to where they belong.

So I leave them there.
I mean, I sweep around them.
Sometimes I even move them around with my broom so I can sweep under them.
What I haven't done is PICK THEM UP.
Until today . . .
I don't even know what the clear plastic looking thing is. I have stared at it numerous times and I still don't know what it is.

I actually picked these two items up and tossed them in the garbage.
It only took me a few weeks though.

Anyone else do this?
come on, be honest
Do you dust AROUND items instead of UNDER them?

So, I do all of the above . . .
Ya know what annoys the HEE HAW outta me?
Going to my grandmother's house to see that someone has painted.
That doesn't annoy me.
They paint alright.
They painted around the picture frames and wall hangings....not UNDER them.
That annoys me.
Sweeping or Dusting around objects does not annoy me.

Seriously, think of how much harder it is to paint around a photo frame! edging is a nightmare


Oh, and remember that SOCK ??
Someone finally picked it up after a few days.
It wasn't me..... I vacuumed right around it.

I sweep every single day but for some reason I haven't swept my eating bay for weeks because it is small and I don't feel like moving chairs out of the way, etc. I don't know what my deal is, but for whatever reason I just don't want to do it!

Boy you would have fun in my house for sure. I have stuff every place I look. I have a toddler that takes everything she can all over the house even though I pick it up every day.

LOL! I do the same thing... but I'm a terrible housekeeper, so I just assumed it was me. LOL! Glad to know I'm not alone.

I can't believe someone would paint AROUND a picture frame?! Are you kidding me? Crazy! Hate to say, I'm an anal neat freak, that's a whole other problem. Oh well...

I loved that when I asked my daughter to get a hair band so I could put her hair up, she said, "Oh! I know where one is!" And she ran to the STAIRS...because there was one on the stairs, and had been there for DAYS...and worse yet, I KNEW exactly where she was going!!!

NONE OF US picked it up.

Hilarious : ) I usually pick it up the first day. I mean, I know I am going to have to eventually so I just jump right in there and do it : )

I JUST did this the last few days and it's a chronic problem in my kitchen especially. I have no idea why because I'm a pretty neat and organized person overall. - AND it drives me NUTS but I continue to do it. CRAZY!

I vacuum everyday and I can't stand a non-clean floor, so my mop is out often. So annoying!

Will it make you mad if I tell you I'm about to paint my bathroom except I'm not going to paint behind the toilet because I'm not taking it out?

hee hee - I pick up only b/c I know NO ONE else ever will!! and why the heck didn't someone take the frames OFF the wall prior to painting??

Emmy on September 17, 2009 at 4:17 PM said...

Lol! I so do that! I will constantly walk around something or sweep around something all day rather than pick it up. Why?? I have no idea, I just do it too. Ahh glad I am not the only one.
