Abby Lab Housekeeping Tips

Abby Lab here - 

Some folks clean their house like they do everything else, ordered, deliberate, careful, behaved.

My Mom can as well.

Sometimes she just reverts to the "Entropy Version of Housekeeping".

Wait until it reaches the lowest level of energy and then scoop it up. 

Sometimes she's a little more energetic about it.

Just some advice - if you're going to vacuum in your bright yellow undies while your jeans and T shirt dry in the dryer. . .

and you're going to listen to Kool and the Gang "Jungle Boogie" REALLY loud. . . .

and you start dancing around with the Oreck in your hand, sucking up those dust bunnies while the red hair whips around. .  .

Make sure you have your drapes are completely closed.

Otherwise, there's a whole 'nother meaning to "neighborhood watch".


  1. Abby, that is VERY good advice! Why is it when the music gets really loud that moms think they are Solid Gold Dancers?

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  2. BOL had a visual of Risky Business. Don't let her take the old records off the shelf when dusting.

    Aroo to you,

  3. Sounds like a bit of a story there! BOL!

    Oh fur paws' sake, you will not believe this - but last week I came to my front window and looked across the street and saw something very similar in the flat over the road!!! That lady did not think there was anyone home this side, it seems... I don't know who jumped back fastest!!!!!!!!!!

  5. BOL!! We can just picture that. I guess it taught some nosy neighbors to mind their own business!

  6. Hey Abby!
    Wow, sounds like a good time to be somewhere else...anywhere else! BOL. ahem. Gosh, I think that could be a recipe for some kind of vacuum disaster.

  7. It's kind of tough to keep a clean house with doggies running in and out of the muddy back yard. (That's why we have no carpets.) Anyway, now that Dad is retired, he has to do the bulk of the housework. He uses his shop vac to clean the floor. Ghostwriter doesn't care how he does it as long as it gets done occasionally. If he does the work in his tighty-whities, ghostwriter doesn't want to know! And we doggies aren't going to tell!
