You girls realize this is not normal..
Eleventy billions times. That's a whole lotta vacuuming girl. You beat me.
That is a good workout!
Sounds like that works well for you. With our cat hair I just don't see it all. The floors look clean but then I vacuum and ewww. LOL.
Yeah the cordless is perfect for every day and like you my DH likes to bring out the heavy duty corded Dyson occasionally.
I wish we could just vacuum up Covid and be done with it. :/
Wouldn't that be a sweet picture.
I would love to be a no shoes home. We are part of the way there in that my DH and I remove our outside shoes/boots when we come inside but for the most part we don't make guests do the same. Workmen are asked to remove their shoes and we give them those disposable booties. Of course with Covid we aren't entertaining so no one is coming inside at all let alone wearing shoes and when we are post pandemic and we start having people over again I am going to make it a no shoes house. It is disgusting what we bring in from outside on our shoes.
My DH said the same of my very expensive winter cycling jacket. And it did work. I got lots of mud splatter on it when we were cycling (wet and muddy-lovely lol) and he said leave it be (as we were cycling on that day) and when we got home he was right. It had dried up and fallen off and looked clean. However, I still washed it. LOL. But I digress. I am not a fan of rugs for that reason. What germs and allergens are lurking within them and how hard it is to truly get them clean. I also prefer the look of bare wood floors so it works for me. Though I miss my white shag area rugs that I am going to probably put back in the living room soon. They do make the room more grounded if you kwim.
Yeah if we had no furry babies I believe once a week would suffice for us too.
Having only tile and/or wood floors makes cleaning much easier though tile drives me nuts because I hate grout. LOL I have a thing with grout
Haha I have a routine of almost never too. As in bathroom cleaning. I leave that to Greg. That is one chore I don't care for at all. I am glad my DH doesn't mind cleaning all the bathrooms.
Haha that sounds like our cats too. Except for the clean thing. Our cats are pretty filthy. They seem to relish in rolling around in their food and litter. It's pretty gross. Somehow we got cats who behave like dogs when it comes to dirt but their personalities are all cat. Sigh.
I have often wondered about dogs bringing in mud/dirt etc. I grew up with dogs but have no memory of that issue. Now I see dogs all the time and they are pretty dirty from the outside and I was wondering do the parents wash them before they come into the house? I so want a dog. You are so lucky you have a golden retriever. They are the best.
Oh and I am right there with you. I LOVE white rugs against dark wood floors. So much. Here's a photo of our set up before I had to throw those away (RW) and while I got new replacement rugs exactly the same they are still packed away for now.
Aww look at our sweet Fred in the photo. Miss him so freaking much it hurts. Francesca too. It's a cruel world that takes our furbabies at such a young age.
Maybe I should have said embrace the stick
I don't like most housework - my least favorite chore is washing dirty pots and pans. However, I like vacuuming.
Missy this room is gorgeous! And I had no idea you would like to have a dog, since I think of you as such a cat person!! Yes, golden retrievers are incredibly special dogs. I would like to do therapy dog work with her in the future. It's what she was born to do (literally).
