Stupid Is As Stupid Does!

Every once in awhile I do something stupid. OK, I lied, I do a lot of stupid things. But on Saturday I did something really stupid! I finally had a day where we did not have any running around to do and both girls were at home with me. What to do with ourselves?

Great, I know, let’s clean the house! But, wait let’s not just do our usual cleaning, let’s deep clean! Let’s move furniture and vacuum behind it!

What the hell was I thinking? Why didn’t anyone stop me?

My little one thought it was great. She took all of the cushions off the couch and started to jump on them. “Look no jumping on the couch means no jumping on the cushions too,” I had to explain. To which I got the reply, “Yeah, but they’re not on the couch!” Smart Ass!

After vacuuming under the couch cushions the “No Eating in the Living Room” rule is back in  place. I found everything from popcorn to pepperoni under the cushions! I am surprised that I did not find an ant invasion under them!

Then we moved the couch and found The Land of the Lost. We found the usual, lost game pieces, crayons, pens, toys, a few coins, etc. I just want to know how a pair of my youngest one’s underwear got back there! Wait, do I really want to know that?

I have ordered the girls to stop me from any future “Deep Cleaning” moments. Thank goodness I didn’t do anything really stupid like move the refrigerator!

  1. Do you rent yourself out?? Because you could come do this in my house. Because I’m afraid, very afraid to do this. What I don’t see, doesn’t bother me!!!

  2. WTG JAMom! I love to move the furniture on occasion. It is a mini treasure hunt moment.

  3. Joy – Sorry, I am not for rent. The next time I move a couch it will be either because I am moving out of my house or because I bought a new couch. Nether one of these events will be happening any thime soon!

    Betme – The next time you get the urge to move furniture let me know. I’ll put you to work in my kid’s rooms!

    I make my kids help me out when I deep clean and they hate it. They also jump on the couch cushions too and you could probably find popcorn and pepperoni in my cushions too..LOL..

  5. Tosha – Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment. My kids are very vocal about not wanting to help. This last time I snapped and told them to shut up! I asked them if they seriously thought that I liked cleaning?!

  6. Another Mean Mom! Love it!! Although my kids don’t mind doing behind the furniture, as they usually find coins there. lol!

    Have a great 4th, Just a Mom!
