You know, normally I like to share pretty pictures on my blog. Lovely photos that remind us of lovely things. But not today. Today I share these...
Why do I share these horrid photos? Because y'all, these are dust mites. And when you find dust in your home, THESE LITTLE CREATURES ARE THERE, TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday, Mr. U and Joshua moved our INCREDIBLY HEAVY bed so that I could vacuum underneath. I can not tell you the last time that I vacuumed under there because, well, uh, um, I, uh, do I have to admit that here? I, uh, sighhhhhhhhhhhh, I have never vacuumed under there.
I said it.
Anyone still here?
Yes, I am ashamed to admit it, but it's true. I am NOT the best homekeeper, but I am learning y'all. :)
Let me make it clear, however, that I DO vacuum in the bedroom- twice a week, in fact. I just don't move the very heavy furniture. I move furniture in other areas of the house that is easy for me to move, but our bedroom has been overlooked by me.
Anyway, there was quite a bit of dust under there and the thought of those dust mites MADE MY SKIN CRAWL!!!!!!!!!!!! So, I want to issue a challenge to everyone, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE move each piece of furniture in your home and vacuum underneath all of them within the next month. What do you think? Can you do that? Most of y'all probably move all of your funiture monthly, but there are probably a few who, like me, have very heavy furniture in spots and those particular spots have been long forgotten by the vacuum cleaner.
Anyone with me on this?
Let's get those nasty dust mites OUT OF OUR HOMES!!!!!!!!!!!!
