lol...no...really.

how often do you vacuum the house?

first, i gotta say, that since i've retired i clean the house every morning...and that includes vacuuming. if i don't vacuum the house at least once a day, i can't stand being in it. i notice every little thing on the floors.

so....how often is normal?

Normal is however often makes you happy. I started "working" from home this summer, and I personally got a little neurotic about cutting the grass. There was a point where I was cutting it every three days. You notice things a lot more when you look at them all the time.

Um, so I don't know if this proves you are completely normal, or we are both ready for the funny farm!

I don't know what's normal. I know my sister does it at least once everyday, but often in the living room, more than once. I am the opposite, I usually vacuum on Saturday's when I do my major house cleaning.

I like the "lived in" look. I think there are houses and there are homes. Houses are show places. Homes are places where people love to come see you and enjoy your company and enjoy being with family. My grandkids are allowed to do things in my home that they are rarely allowed to do at their home. I am all about convenience, comfort, and enjoyment. I don't like to vacume, therefore, it is lucky to get it once a week! Plus I just don't have time.

Vacuum? And disrupt my inch thick cat hair rug? This rug is expensive--do you know how much cat food it takes to make an inch thick cat hair rug?

Okay, okay--once a week. Spot vacuum every day with a dust buster. Cats hate vacuums. Now my dogs used to line up to BE vacuumed, they loved it!

It doesn't take all kinds, we just have all kinds.

I vacuum every other day...I dust about that often, and now I've begun to "moisturize" the few pieces of antique furniture that I have. THAT is a job! You spread on the stuff, making sure it's in all the little grooves and crevices, wait ten minutes and wipe it off. Not as easy as it sounds because the stuff that does the moisturizing brings up a lot of grime and dirt. You rub and rub and rub, and then you rub some more. But the result is worth it, and I only have to do it once or twice a year.

LOL mga. Catherine. What is the stuff you are talking of? Not that I'm excited about adding something else to do, but I have some furniture that seems dry. I'm wondering about what you are using.

It's called WATCO Rejuvenating oil. A friend, who is a furniture restorer, told me to use that. Read the directions carefully as you might want to pick up some very fine steel wool.The package tells you what kind to get. I got mine at Lowe's.

One piece that gets it soon is an 1830s mahogony secretary that was a wedding gift from my husband's parents. (It had been in his family for eons and the in-laws no longer wanted it because of the care it required!) It will take a whole container of WATCO's, I'm sure. I'll be working on that one all day! Fortunately, the furniture restorer's son has offered to help me.
