Tattletail Tueseday

Psst, mom actually likes this lamp! Apparently her taste is horrible...oh, she's also a terrible howse keeper. Sure she'll wash walls and da drapes and floors and vacuum effury morning. She scrubs sinks and toilets and all dat stuff but, she just moves all da junk and cleans den she puts it all back. She claims it's cuz it's all dad's stuff, well it is dad's stuff, but if she were serious about cleaning dis place she'd move it all someplace else. And she's going out "shopping" wif da sister-in-law again today, but when she does this she rarely comes home wif anything...we think she's not really shopping and is doing sumthing else. Wonder what it could be?

Every mommy have their own habits, I am sure about that.

Maintain a house clean is always not easy, I think your mommy is doing good enough~!!!

That's a pretty weird lamp!

My mom says she's very lucky - my dad does most of the housework. That good army training she says! My mom does the laundry, and helps load and unload the dishwasher, and helps to sweep and dust, but my dad does most of the household chores.

Maybe your Mom just likes to clean all the stuff they call decorations.Beans like to have all sorts of stuff around the house.
A mystery!What could your Mom be doing with her sister-in-law??
I hope you find out soon and tell me :)
I'm a cat and I'm curious!

Hey Zippy, Ed here. I'd love to come to tea with you on Wednesday, but the peep lady is going to be at work - big important meeting in her world - I don't understand but I'm just a cat. Anyway if you don't mind I'll teleport over to your house and go with you and your crew. Phinny is NOT coming. He is just too young to understand about manners and stuff. I promised him I'd bring him back a treat and he said okay. So I'll be other there around 11:30 on Wednesday. See you soon

That is undoubtedly an odd lamp. and I'm pretty sure that moving things from room to room constitutes cleaning.

Tara said...

My mom says stuff like that about dad all the time. His junk is stacked up everywhere!

My mommy told me that lamp is a "classic." I've said it before, and I'll say it again, mommies are strange. If that lamp ever came to live at our house, I'd make sure it had an "accident."

Wonder what your mom is doing if she's not shopping? A mystery!

The Meezers said...

YOUR MOM VACUUMS EVERY MORNING? What planet is she from?
SHE WASHES THE FLOORS AND WALLS?
We've been here a year and ML has not scrubbed the kitchen floor once. (she thinks a bi-monthly vacuum should suffice.)
And the only time she's ever washed a wall was to get Smudges poo off of it.
I hope she is getting a massage today!
Her back must be broken from all that cleaning.
I love the lamp!

Daisy said...

I am also very amazed that your mom vacuums every morning. My Mommie tries for once a week. And she is not always successful in that goal.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Ummmm, that is a very ummmmm... interesting lamp, yes very interesting.

I can't believe your Mum vacuums every morning either. My Mum "tries" for once a week.

Beezer said...

Man!!
How do you put up with all that rug monster noise! Mine does it once a week and it takes me the rest of the day to calm down.

As for shopping.... there is lots of strange stuff goin' on htis time of year. Mine mombean came home wif all kinds a neat stuff, but is was all for the secret paw. Bummer!

Captain Jack and Dante said...

Our Mommy hates to clean. Just reading about what all your Mommy does to clean made our Mommy tired.

DEBRA said...

That lamp is cute!

Chancy & Ernie's Voice said...

My Mom does the house cleaning here, when she feels lke it...My Dad bought one of those lamps last year. My Mom has no sense of humor. That is what my Dad says. He wants to put it in the front window this year. I hope my Mom dosen't get too upset...I gotta feeling he will put it there. Poor Mom! Not laughing...

Team Tabby said...

Our Mommy is so jealous that you have a "Christmas Story" Lamp - but it looks like something we'd like to play with!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Shopping does not equal buying.

Tiger Lily said...

My Mom is a terrible housekeeper too. It's a good thing my Daddy does the vacuuming! We aren't allowed to have any lamps out. Someone seems to be really good at knocking them over.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

*giggle*! What a fascinating lamp! I rather like the shoe!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Henry Helton said...

Um yeah, My Lady said that she likes that lamp. Our beans are really weird.

Catzee said...

That am furry weird.

MoMo said...

Your mom is a hundred times better than SS as a housekeeper. I'll leave that to an epic Tattletail.

Surely Zippy wouldn't bring a live mousie into the house and let it go!!!!!!!!

Nothing ever survives after I have had a go at it whether it is a mousie, lizard or any other crawlie. This even inlcudes Christmas tree and decorations....

Sunny's Mommy said...

How cool is that! You got one of them frahgilly lamps :-D Is that your Mom's or your Dad's? I think they're supposed to be Dad lamps ;-)

jenianddean said...

Don't you understand, it's a major award! That's mom and dad's favorite movie. Dad is so jealous that your mom bought that.
