Has anyone seen the cleaning fairy? She keeps missing my house and I want to know what’s up. If she comes by your house, can you point her in my direction?
I keep sending her messages through the cosmos telling her my house is just the right house to test out all those new heavy-duty magic potions she’s been dying to try, but she doesn’t seem to get my message. I even leave treats out for her – like the bits of broken cookies on the kitchen floor and the chips my kids left scattered all over the family room last night. But alas, she turns up her nose at my meagre offerings and flutters off somewhere else.
Anyone have any tricks to entice her to visit? I thought perhaps she preferred to work alone, so this afternoon, when the dusting and vacuuming and sweeping and wiping needed doing, I went for a bike ride instead, hoping against hope she’d show up. But of course, nothing. And tonight, when the laundry mountain looked way too imposing to tackle, I wandered off to the playground, thinking the peace and quiet would be just what she was looking for. Sigh. Still nothing.
I’m discouraged. I’ve waited and waited and waited for her. If she takes much longer, I may have to take drastic measures and start cleaning my house mySELF. Sheesh. Cleaning fairy, if you can hear me, PLEASE don’t let it come to that.
