What i really mean by the title is that i am a lazy butt and this new job is kicking my butt.

So i have been without a vacuum for about a month now. Our vacuum decided that he hated us and his (and i say he cause it must have been a man because he never felt like cleaning) spinning brush thingy broke in half. How does this happen? I have no clue honestly but if someone could explain it to me i would love to know.

Now this wouldn't have been a problem if my whole house wasn't carpeted. Literally every room in my house has carpet, even the bathroom and kitchen. I do not own this house other wise this problem would have been fixed a long time ago. Renting sucks big time!!! Anyways back to the subject at hand!

We had been borrowing my MIL's vacuum when it gets bad enough around here that we can't stand it any longer, but finally, Saturday, we bought a new vacuum. It isn't anything expensive or fancy just a $65 vacuum from Wal-Mart. So i was all excited thinking i am going to go home and clean and run the vacuum. Well Saturday came and went and i didn't clean. Then i said well i will have all day Sunday to do it so tomorrow will be the day.

Can you guess what happened Sunday? I bet you can't!!! I got the living room cleaned and stopped there. The dinning room, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and both bedrooms still are a wreck. Now for my defense the kitchen is my husband's responsibility but as most women know i minus well wait around for the cleaning fairy to come do it if i am waiting on him, and the kids bedroom is their responsibility and they just didn't seem to care yesterday.

So here we are on Monday! No school because there was a 2 hour delay which shuts down the head start for the day since they only do half days, and i don't have to work. I could be cleaning right now. No really instead of typing out this post, chatting on twitter, filling out blog giveaway comments, and letting the kids watch TV i could be cleaning the other 6 rooms of my house. But what am i doing instead....well all the above listed items.

But i wont take all the responsibility here as there are some great giveaway's going on that are keeping me at the computer biting my nails.

Oh you wanted to know what they are? Well OK then!!!

Lol you sound like me. I swear I started cleaning the bathroom the other day and was gonna clean the kitchen and do the laundry and I got done with the bathroom and stopped. I was about dead by the time I got done with that I doubt I would have lived through cleaning to other rooms with my huge belly haha. You reminded me of something though I desperately need a new vacuum cleaner lol.
