Shhhhh.

I have a dirty little secret.

I have a dirty little secret

Cobwebs.

This one in-particular has been hanging from our ceiling for probably 2 1/2 years. TWO AND A HALF YEARS.

Do not tell my mother. Or my Grandmother.

And it’s not just that one … I have cobwebs in most of the corners of my home. And I even have a special broom to remove them.

I like to call him my Butler. Because it feels good to order this object around. BUTLER! REMOVE THE COBWEBS OR ELSE! He doesn’t listen very often though, so I have to take control.

And control I do take. Let’s assess this awful situation shall we?

Now, Butler, get to work. We have cobwebs to attack.

No … not the floor, you’re the wrong kind of broom for the floor, Mister. Get up there.

Much better.

Now it’s time to conquer Fred from the ceiling. It’s a sneak attack. I’m actually sad to see this constant little friend be destroyed. Sort of.

Oh, corners … how I’ve missed you.

You’re looking beautiful in this sunshine today.

Butler … you need a shower, but you get a cookie first.

So there you have it. My dirty little secret. Cobwebs. I have a hard time paying attention to those kind of details when I’m not at eye level with them, well, ever. Out of sight, out of mind is a theory my cleaning tactics have borrowed.

What about you? Do tell! Divulge the information! I know you want to. COME CLEAN.

  1. Floors. I totally suck at washing them. I vacuum like a mad-woman but only seem to have the energy/thought/care to wash our floors say… every few months? Gross, I know. Guess what… don’t care.

  2. Cobwebs mean there are spiders near and this girl cannot deal with spiders, so that is one thing that I am VERY good about noticing…and thus, cleaning! I use a shop vac (crevice tool…my bff) so I can be sure there are ZERO remnants. I’m neurotic…I know.

  3. That’s too funny because just the other night my 4 year old son pointed out two cobwebs in the corners of his room! I told him there are probably dozens more around our house because I haven’t cleaned them in at least a year. I had to convince him that spiders do not make cobwebs (do they? don’t know for sure) I came up with a good explanation about dust particles and humidity and stuff – he seemed to buy it! πŸ™‚
    Besides the cobwebs, I also have issues with keeping the walls cleaned. Just the other day I was noticing all these stuff on our walls. Where does it come from?! I can understand the kitchen walls getting dirty…but the rest? So I grabbed my trusted “magic eraser” and went to work.

  4. Shana – Oh I hear you on that! We have mostly hardwood floors and the whole argument that it’s “less maintenance” just blows my mind … because really? You want me to mop all this instead of just walk around with a machine? I don’t get it.

    Meghan … oh Meghan. Haha, there are spiders no matter how well you clean your house. I’m sorry to tell you! But removing their traces probably keeps things a little less inviting πŸ™‚

    Jolibe – just discovered the magic of the magic eraser! So fun. It’s a little addicting.

  5. Oh. my. word.

    The honesty of your generation makes me think there is something not quite right about me because I would have a very hard time admitting I might be able to find a cobweb in my house. πŸ™‚

    And come to think of it..I have not noticed your cobwebs – ever.

  6. Oh I don’t even think about the cobwebs. I know they are there, but like you said, not at eye level, so way beyond my to do list πŸ™‚ If I can keep up with the dishes alone I feel like I’m winning πŸ™‚

  7. Ladies – KRZ is my mom in case you haven’t figured that out yet … she’s hilarious. And how would you all like it if we did a little video series about the differences of our generations?

    I like the idea.

  8. yes…figured that was your mom. heart her! video series is definitely in order and it would be funny to get k to chime in!!
