I’ve decided to start a new housekeeping trend…still working on a name for it, maybe…Sweep-A-Meal-Later.
See here’s my problem- after my kids eat one meal it is impossible, impossible, to sweep the food up off the floor. For dinner tonight we had grilled chicken, broccoli and rice and all the little spilled and far-flung tidbits just balled up and got stuck to my socks, but did NOT end up where I wanted them…in the dust pan.
After much research (read: slackassery) I have discovered the same is true for Cheerios. Wet Cheerios simply refuse to be swept or vacuumed up, and I’m not bending over a bazillion times a day to get all those little pieces. For several reasons:
1) If I wanted to bend over I would go to the gym,
2) When I DO go to the gym the backs of my legs are sore and I DON’T want to bend over and pick up all that crap
3) I’m pretty sure I would eventually black out from the sudden and extreme changes in my blood pressure…it’s a health risk, y’all. AND
4) Why should I worry about it when I can simply Sweep-A-Meal-Later and vacuum them up in 5 seconds flat with my handy-dandy cordless vacuum, like it’s my job? (I mean, I get that it IS “my job”, but you feel me right?)
All that to say this, if you come to my house in the morning and there is still rice and broccoli on my floor, or you come by at lunch time and there are Cheerios plastered about, it isn’t mere slackassery you are witnessing, my friends.
It’s a genius with a plan.
