Buzzy, Congratulating Himself on a Job Well-done!


When I get lazy about making my bed in the morning, Buzzy comes to get me.  Making the bed is the high-point of the morning, involving considerable growling and tossing of his “babies” off the bed to let me finish the job.  That being done, he encourages me to cook breakfast and load the dishwasher, ever hopeful that he’ll end up with a tasty tidbit.  He’s a pretty good little housekeeping coach!

The obvious and fair solution to the housework problem is to let men do the housework for, say, the next six thousand years, to even things up. The trouble is that men, over the years, have developed an inflated notion of the importance of everything they do, so that before long they would turn housework into just as much of a charade as business is now. They would hire secretaries and buy computers and fly off to housework conferences in Bermuda, but they’d never clean anything.
~ Dave Barry  

A clean house is the sign of a boring person.
I don’t hate men, I just wish they’d try harder. They all want to be heroes and all we want is for them to stay at home and help with the housework and the kids. That’s not the kind of heroism they enjoy.
~ Jeanette Winterson One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.
~ A.A. Milne


Dust is a protective coating for fine furniture.
~ Mario Buatta
You don’t get anything clean without getting something else dirty.
~ Cecil Baxter
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
Cleanliness is next to impossible.
Earth’s surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.
~ Chuck Clark
Have a place for everything and keep the thing somewhere else; this is not a piece of advice, it is merely a custom.
~ Mark Twain

At worst, a house unkept cannot be so distressing as a life unlived.
~ Rose Macaulay
