Public Service Announcement #6

Should you find yourself with time on your hands, (say your computer died and you cannot blog) and decide that you should wash all the walls in your house you will need the following:

1) A large bucket

2) At least a litre and a half of TSP. Should you decide to get the smaller carton it may necessitate yet another trip to Wal-Mart. While washing the walls you may wonder why in Sam Hill your walls have gotten so dirty, then you will observe your child licking the wall and wonder no longer.

3) Several rags, because you will spend so much time scrubbing USC (Unidentified Stuck-on Crud) that you may wear a hole in one of them.

4) The ugly pink floral towels you received for your wedding instead of the pretty blue ones you registered for. They are great for drying the walls once the USC is removed.

5) Rubber gloves because TSP is terribly hard on your hands. Terribly. Chapped and bleeding hands just seem to detract from whatever outfit you have on, no matter how cute and sassy.

6) Lots and lots of time. This is not a job for the faint of heart.

7) Molly Maid. Only crazy ladies wash their own walls.

This PSA was brought to you by the queen of crazy. But at least her walls are clean.

Oh, MY. Oh, MY. You need to get BACK to your computer fast! So glad you are back, girl! Missed you. And I really hope if you did wash walls, which is scary to those who barely ever wash their floors, that you did use those ugly pink florals.

Oh yuck! I hate that stuff but it does work.

Bring on the computer so Happy Geek doesn't have to entertain herself by scrubbing walls.

I did some wall washing myself! If you can lick your finger and 'draw' on the wall, I think it's time!!!
