    Default You know it's time to... when...

    When I made coffee this morning, I stirred it and put the spoon on the edge of the sink... next to the other three spoons that were in the same place for the same reason.

    You know it's time to wash dishes when you see a line of spoons waiting to be washed.

    What are your reminders?

    You know it's time to buy a new vacuum...

    When you drop a pancake on the floor and your current vacuum just won't pick it up.

    Guess what I'VE been doing all morning...

    Yes, I know I could just pick up the pancake, but MissCris REALLY has me wanting a vacuum that can do it for me...

    (I just want to know, how many pancakes and how many vacuums do I have to go through until I find the RIGHT combination??!!!)

    I know it’s time to clean the litter box when my only boy cat (I call him Mr. Nibbles because it annoys my husband but that’s not his name) starts pulling towels off the hooks and chewing on them.

    This brings to mind an incident I had with my cat and my vacuum cleaner

    I was getting ready to leave for work recently when I heard a bit of a crash in the other room, so I went to investigate, mostly to make sure my cat was okay I discovered that she had stood on the edge of the litter box, and because it did not have enough product in it, her slight weight had tipped the box over, and spilled much of the contents on the bathroom floor. I could not go to work leaving it like that, because she would have fussed at it, and done her kitty scratch dance around it, and who knows what all else with it, so! Out comes my handy yet rarely used vacuum cleaner to suck up the mess, except, the vacuum had zero suction, since it was completely clogged, and I mean right to the place where the hose meets the vacuum body, with cat hair, carpet fibers, kitty litter, and other non-descript yet very dusty detritus. At this point I had to call in to work to say I was going to be late

    You know it's time to fill the litter box when the litter level is
    so low, the cat can tip the box over. You know it's time to
    empty the vacuum cleaner when there is zero suction.

    You know it's time to stop making pancakes that you drop on the floor because your vacume can't cope with it.
    Or if you toss tired pancakes then it's time to buy a bigger pan that you can catch it in.

    Poor old vacume

    You know it's time to get up when the alarm goes off in the morning.
    Mind you my alarm is my bichon frise Rufus.

    My wife gets up in the morning, Rufus follows her.
    Then she says to Rufus "Time to take daddy his cup of tea"
    He runs up stairs, bounces on our bed and wakes me up.
    Jumps all over me and tries to lick me.

    In all seriousness NO.

    We know each other well enough to know it's time to...
    We do get it wrong.
    But hey we are human.

    Then we know if we get it wrong then it's time to forgive.

    Two words: Shop Vac. You don't have one? I thought you of all people would have a shop vac...

    Really, it sucks up anything. It would suck up the skillet you use to cook the pancakes if you could get it through the tube.

    Shop vacs are so 20th century. It's time to look to the future of cleaning. This thing won't just pick up the dust and dirt but also the carpet, the furniture.........

    I watched one of these things in action. They dug a trench from the Nashville MTA to a lift station (you don't even want to know what those are) about a meter deep and 60 meters long and it literally water jetted out the trench hole, sucked up the mud, dumped the brackish water in a storm drain and left a perfect trench without getting the grass wet.

    You know it's time to pack when your trip is 2 days away
    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    Ok... So you're telling me this thing will not only pick up an entire STACK of pancakes... But it will also dig trenches as well???!!!

    Well, glory hallelujah!!!

    My dream of becoming a human mole has just come true.

    Picking up pancakes wherever I go... AND digging trenches... through my neighbors' yards...

    Just show me where I sign up.
