WHY DID I GET OUT OF BED!

So I have a routine when I dust. I start in the family room dusting the cocktail table, end tables and the hutch with my Jim Shore pieces. Then I move on to the living room, dinning room and Mark's office. I usually do our bedroom and my office on another day. It's all too much for one day. Well I'm not sure what happened on Friday but it was not my day to dust!

Remember I was home alone all week. I think the quiet got to me! Anyway I started dusting my Willow Tree collection and all hell broke lose. Since I have a smart phone it makes it really easy to share moments like this on Facebook. Take the picture, link it up and say a few words. I really do enjoy Facebook when I travel. Okay back to my story. This is what I posted on Facebook:

"Not my day for dusting. LOL...I knocked my pregnant Willow Tree lady over too and I told her I was very sorry. Guess this quiet house is going to my head. I'm talking to my Willow Tree figurines now! Okay off to the hospital with the tea pot lady.......I'll keep you posted!"

"Honestly I have to stop dusting, I did it again only this time his hand flew behind the buffet which I can't move! By some miracle it happen with such speed that his hand actually ended up near the front underneath."
"Okay, teapot lady doing well 
and little boy is all stitched up and resting comfortably."


Decided to stop dusting and start vacuuming. Before I vacuumed the family room I decided to bowl on Wii. Well it wasn't my day for that either. I'm still a pro according to them but I think they may take my pretty shiny ball away soon! 

I was just about ready to start vacuuming and the phone rang. It was Mark and I said where are you? On my way home from the airport. What???? I thought you got in at noon? That is what he thought but he was wrong. I said I'm not done cleaning and haven't showered yet. (That was my goal before he came home) He said you want me to go somewhere for 30 extra minutes? No! So I jumped in the shower and remembered that I better thank God for bringing him home safe to me. 

On another subject.....in all the crazy traffic last Tuesday driving to bowling I did see this. Guess God was giving me a sign to keep on going......... 
(yes traffic was stopped or I never would have taken this photo)

Mark was in Seattle this week and happened to come by a Polish Pottery store and bought me these  S  & P shakers. Thanks honey!
Obviously my day did get better.....
and I'm not home alone anymore.

Some days the only thing you can do is stay in bed and watch television. A danger to society otherwise! Glad your day got better though.

Cathy said...

Sorry about your broken Willow pieces. She looks all better after you fixed her though. Glad your day got better. Take care.

Sounds like you had a tough day. I am sorry that the Willow piece broke, but it looks like they are back together now. I love the S & P shakers that Mark got you they are really pretty. Hope you have a nice day.

Oh my! I have days like that, too. So sorry about your angels... they are too pretty to breaking! :( So sweet of your hubby to bring you the little s/p shakers... they are cute!

I'm sorry, I laughed out loud when I saw the willow boy. It looks like he is trying to escape and reaching up for help from the teapot angel lady.

Glad the day improved.

I can't tell you how many times I've broken the hands on my Willow Tree figurines. So I stopped dusting. LOL

nancygrayce said...

Awwww....glad you were able to fix them! Glad hubby got home safely and just let that dusting go:). I'm dog sitting our son's huge dog this weekend and our house is a wreck. Does no good to clean while she's here.

Dusting can be deadly... Willow Tree figurines (and all other decorative items beware)!

Love the salt and pepper set! So cute!

Wishing you a lovely week.

I'm stuck back at the revelation that you have a dusting routine. Here's my routine: Every few months I lok around and think "Holy hell, it's dusty!" And then I get up and clean what I can see (sometimes with my sleeve) until I get distracted by other things.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

This is why I don't dust. Love the salt and peppers.
