Keeping the Illusion Alive...

Ever heard this term?  "Keeping the Illusion Alive"  I cant remember where I heard it.  Well I used to live by this  when it came to domestic cleanliness.  This means you run around the house and clean really fast before company comes over to keep the illusion of a clean house alive.  Last night I was wishing for a real magician.  I spent a few hours on the computer avoiding the" Aftermath"...
The after math of After Dinner and After School
I never did care for math.  Well I've decided recently (about 7 months ago) It would no longer be an illusion.  I would be my own company every morning so I can wake up to this.
(i really need to do something with this table, I think a can of paint is calling)
Cleanliness of sorts, don't get too close, I'm still trying to keep the illusion alive. :-)

Our dishwasher broke. Grumbley-grumbley....
I love having a clean house. I dislike how fast it gets destroyed.

that's funny! it's so nice to wake up to a clean home, but it's so hard to clean at the end of the day when you're so tired!!

Wow, I am so behind on blogging. But you've been doing great. I had a lot of catch up reading to do. And great job on the clean kitchen! I need to follow your lead.

The mess I had yesterday couldn't be "magic-ed" away. Sprinkles, coconut and icing was everywhere!

Although I think a shiny sink makes everything better...welcome to SITS!

Some days, it's so bad I can't even maintain the illusion. But, for sure, there's nothing better than waking up to a clean house. Love your kitchen! (Oh and your header made me smile - it's so cute!)
