Going on a fairy hunt.......

I seriously need a fairy today. I have a list a mile long of things I need to accomplish. I seriously want my house to be clean, my errands to be run, my laundry to be completed and meals to be planned and prepared. There is also a ton of yardwork I'd like to twinkle my nose and get done. Forget yard of the month, let's just rid the yard of weeds!!! I'd also love the time to be inspired by my many blog friends, and even a little time to languish in the spring-ness of the air, and perhaps finish my Bible study or read a novel. So I've decided I need a fairy......I'm not sure what she will look like, so it's a mite difficult to locate her. There are all sorts of day workers that hang out waiting for jobs......but fairies don't seem to mingle at the corner looking for jobs. Where do you get a fairy??? She possibly looks like this, although this could be her disguise...
clearly she uses products like these, and with the wave of her wand , things are magically accomplished. I don't know how long it takes her, but rumors I've heard regard her as quite the time manager. I've a lot to learn from her, obviously. I've read Lazy Moms TMT......that stands for ten minute tasks, but according to my watch, the tasks I'm in need of accomplishing will take about 4230 ten minute segments......so where is she, that cute little fairy? I'm off to find her...and in the meantime, I'll be turning on the music (hey maybe that draws her in out of hiding????) and getting some serious order restored to the SI Casa.....

When you find your fairy see if she has a sister that can come to my house :)

I too would like to have a fairy! If you find one give her my name.:-) Have a great day and good luck on your hunt!

Wouldn't that be wonderful? It seems like there are so many things that need to be done. Life just gets crazy!

Have a wonderful day - good luck getting it all done!

I've seen those "fairies" standing near my neighborhood too. Some neighbors have picked up truck loads of "helpers" for heavy moving or yard work. Sometimes you can find some REALLY good workers. If you provide them lunch they are eternally grateful...but be careful, they are all not on the up and up. ALWAYS take someone with you (a man preferably) if you use those fairies....and someone that speaks Spanish too is VERY helpful!

Hope a REALLY good fairy comes to help you with all your STUFF!

Suzanne, since we are such good friends, could i borrow this fairy as soon as you are done? BUT, I need her/him by tomorrow ~~ QUICK!

Cass said...

Oh Suzanne... what you need is a WIFE! Hahaha... no, seriously, we all need that fairy that you are looking for. (sigh)...

If you find that fairy, CLONE HER, and send that clone north to me!

Thanks for the laugh! My yard is looking, as my grandmother used to say, "Like DEAD people live there!"

Best wishes... Cass

Spring cleaning fairies are really hard to find, they all seem to disappear when we need them the most! I wish I could of had a daughter, I would MAKE her be the cleaning fairy! This said, followed by an evil laugh...

Blessings,

No kidding I was the only girl of 8 kids and my mom would call out "Oh Fairy" she was calling me! Well I am not called oh fairy anymore but like many of you I am the primary cleaner of our home. You know just yesterday my 20 year old came home and washed his dirty work hands in my half-bath (that I just cleaned) and he dripped dirt everywhere....I walked into the bathroom and said "what does this kid think that the magic fairy cleans up after him" well if the lable fits wear it...Magic Fairy I am. So, Look no further than your bathroom mirror and you will find the your homes fairy!

happy cleaning ladies.

I think we can all use a fairy now and again to sprinkle a little magic dust around! Oh, I heard back from Promotions...everything is cleared up now. Thanks for your help!

Ang baylis said...

Hi, I'm not sure if I've been here or not before, but I know for sure that I want one of those fairies, too! By the way... Is there really a Sugar Land Texas? If so, I want to move there! It's nice meeting you... thanks for the smile this evening!
Love,

If you find a fairy, can you please box her up and mail her to Virginia?? I have two bathrooms and a kitchen floor that are dying for a good cleaning. ;)

Controlling My Chaos said...

Girl, Have you been sampling some of that fairy dust? :)

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

oh shoot - I am about 15th down on the request to share the fairy? I called her last week and she was no where to be found. I'll be yours if you'll be mine. :)

Domestic Designer said...

Stop by. I have a gift for you!

Darlene said...

We could all use a fairy now and then...lol

robinrane said...

Oh this made me smile...my thought? The music definately draws the fairy. Plugging in my ipod and turning it up a loooot and I'm in hyper mode! Prayers for you to have a super productive day!!!

Very funny post! I see your blogging friends have some great ideas as to what kind of fairy they would like... "tall, dark and handsome", "pool-boyish"..... wow....
