But If You Don’t Do It…

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.

–Phyllis Diller

It’s a Sisyphean task, but someone’s gotta do it.

    Eh, As long as you have anyone at all living with you, it doesn’t get any better when the kids grow up, either.

    Hell, I had the carpets cleaned the other day, and then Darwin decided to pee on it, after two years of being perfectly house trained.

    I give up.

    Can someone (who’s got to do it) show me the task that isn’t Sisyphean?

    Those years were impossible–and again when my grandkids were with me for high school. Claire is so darned cute.

    “Sisyphean.” Is that pronounced “Sissy Feeann?” Maybe “sih sih feeann?”

    Anyway, I like dem references to the classical Greeks and stuff.

    I find that Babycakes is bascially, when it comes to home neatness, like a minor hurricane.

    Hmm, Gerry, I tend to pronounce is the first way. It helps to know the Sissy Feeann is a burdened as I am. 😉
