The Monster’s Here

Here we go again on a Friday….of course that’s monster day around here and I am as prepared for it as I ever am.   Just keeping an eye on the hallway closet waiting for it to make an appearance.    Then “LET THE CLEANING BEGIN!!!!!”…………………

"Mr. Clean" (?)

“Mr. Clean” (?)

There are two ways of looking at the cleaning thing………..one of course is that we keep our homes nice and neat and clean and  tidy, but we should also consider that when we clean, we might be destroying the lives of millions of dust bunnies all across the world!

CLEANING4

I say I’d rather do without the bunnies and the sneezing from the dust and live in a nice clean house…….if anyone’s gonna mess this place up it should be ME!   Right?

My toy box is actually a toy WAGON!

Yeah the place is a mess but I like my stuff where I can keep an eye on it!

Tomorrow is Bacon Day as you all know but Sunday is a HUGE day………..it’s Mother’s Day ( yay for Mom) AND it’s my 4th blogaversary and the party I’ll be giving for YOU – all my friends  –  to celebrate that occasion.  Make sure you stop by  even if it’s just for a minute OK?

Now get out there and start your Friday———————-it’s  the end of the week and  you have to START today to get to the end of today and the weekend!  Right?  Right!

Hugs, Sammy

I just updated my CafePress shop to include some new stuff!

    • Funny but my Mom’s office is where the dust bunnies hide for protection against the monster too. I guess my Mom is one of those dust-bunny appreciators like your human??

  1. My mum said she is getting the monster out soon too. I have been enjoying a snooze on the bed, but as soon as I see it appear I will head out to my plant pot in the greenhouse. I’ll be here for your Blogoversary Sammy.

    • Flynn I keep trying to tell my Mom that even though we don’t have a greenhouse, a nice big straw filled plant pot would be a GREAT nap spot! She’s ignoring me so far………….see you Sunday my dear friend!

  2. Since Mom got the Roomba working again, the dust bunnies have nowhere to hide!! We don’t mind the Roomba at all….not scary like the big monster!!!

    We just visited your shop….you’ve got cool stuff there! Mom’s going to look again when she has more time.

    • Well Cody it wasn’t TOOOO bad today. Mom got the housecleaning done then went outside to plant purple petunias, then came back inside to do two loads of laundry, then FINALLY sat down so I could have my morning LAP NAP! Whew!

  4. Dust bunnies! Funny!!! It is raining here this morning and we are very happy, we will take it. No cleaning here today in any way, just staying inside out of the rain. Reading, goofing off… 🙂 Enjoy your Friday Sammy and stay clear of the super sucker!

    Like

    • Goofing off sounds delicious but Mom insisted on grocery shopping for Mom’s Day cookout with neighbors, planting purple petunias in the garden, cleaning the house, and doing laundry. I’ve had very little “lap time” and I’m not happy about it!

  5. Wow Sammy You’ve inspired us here too… We have to hoover on a daily basis actually because it’s such a small space and with my fur and litter spills it needs lots of monster action but even still we have lots of dust bunnies! Maybe I should instruct the human to do twice a day! hehe!

    • Hi Bailey! Nice to hear from you……….on board Nocturne I’m sure there’s some hovering needed but at least it’s a smaller space and the noise is over more quickly than here at my place with three floors!!!!

  6. Sighs. Your monster today means my monster day tomorrow – on Caturday. Shakes piggy head. I’m with you cousin – I hate monster day. Can you believe that mom actually makes us all do our parts and us anipals have chores? The nerve of her with anipal labor. But I guess we will give in knowing that Sunday is Mother’s Day. Hope you have a great weekend – can’t wait for your party. And please give your mom a hog and snout kiss for me for Mother’s Day okay buddy. XOXO – Bacon

    • We all have to cut our Moms some slack this week because of Sunday’s Mom’s Day celebration……I’m even dusting around here with a feather duster tied to my tail……anything to help Mom out!!!! I’ll see you on Sunday my friend and meanwhile will pass on the hog and snout kiss to my Mom from you – – – – she would want me to pass BACK to your Mom from us a BIG SAMMY HUG and wet nose kiss from ME and a human-hug from Mom!

  7. I would like to skip vacuuming because Phoebe gets so scared, but with 15 cats it has to be done often. I can’t wait to get my bag and Cap ( for hubby) of Sammy 🙂

    • One thing I will say for the Cafepress stuff – it’s GREAT quality. My Dad wears his “Sammy cap” to the airport all the time and he’s had it FOUR years and it looks brand new!

  8. Cleaning is vastly over-rated in my opinion! Unfortunately too much dust makes me sneeze so I have to get around with the feather duster fairly frequently! Thankfully, I am not allergic to cats.

  10. Hi, Sammy! You get to keep your toys – I mean troops – in a wagon? Boy is The General going to be jealous when he hears that!! And you have SO MANY! Just wait until I tell him about this….

      • You have a wagon AND a basket FULL of troops, Sammy?!? What am I doing wrong?! I can’t even get my ONE basket situated where I can access all of the troops. Any strategies you can offer to improve my situation would be much appreciated.

        Very best regards,

        • Sherman, I do feel “blessed” by the troop situation here in my camp. The troops are located in a safe corner of the room…..it’s not in the center of the room which of course would be ideal, but it’s still a good location out of the line of fire. My advice to you is be PERSISTENT – it pays off eventually. Humans are rather SLOW when it comes to getting the not so subtle hints we give them but it’s not their fault…..they are, after all, only human.
