I'd put it right up there with polishing the silver.

In the grand scheme of things...how important is vacuuming??  Just a

I've been working some Saturdays and overtime during the week plus trying
to
get the MG plant sale set up. When I do find some time to do anything it
is
usually spent "putting out fires" - something is in  desparate need of
water,
or something is being eaten, or some hostas in my hosta bed are burning
from
the 960 heat that appeared out of nowhere. This hosta bed had always had perfect exposure, but when we had those storms in Dec, I lost a lot of
limbs
from that tree and the hosta bed is now in full sun. I haven't had time
or
space to move them so I've positioned umbrellas over them until I can get
to
it.  I  don't even remember when I last vaccuumed.

Gardening Fairy strikes again.  How kind of your  neighbor.  And very
thoughtful.
I know exactly how you feel. Last night I was so overwhelmed. I am so BEHIND in everything right now. April and May it RAINED (23 days of rain) Almost every single weekend for the last two months have been consumed
with
family funerals, travel or family in the hospital. Weekends are the ONLY time I have to get caught up. My gardens look like h*ll. I don't even
want
to go HOME right now cause I get so fed up and frustrated. If I could
find
somebody to help me do the deep cleaning - I can spend my time putting things away and putting stuff back in place. Even my bedroom - which I
normally keep so clean, is cluttered with boxes from my sister's
house...photos, momentos, junk - that my mother gave me to sort through.

I
haven't even had time to do that.

This year, knowing that I had no time for gardening due to scheduled
surgeries
of my mother, I decided not  to do any new plantings or annuals this
season.
Figured I would work on some restructuring and attempt to get the weeds
under
control instead of spending the little  time trying to keep things
watered
etc.

So  what happened.....

I haven't water yet, nor would I have had too. We got over 8 inches in
June
and the month isn't over. This is the first week of hot weather. I was
right
about not having time, cause every day I had free was raining so the restructuring isn't working either. Mothers surgery has been postponed
so
many times, not sure when it will happen. (was to be next Tuesday, but
now
monday she is going for cardiac thing  instead)

For those that made it this far in the message, my house must look bare.
My
non-gardening neighbor who I am not social with dropped off a flat of
annuals
last night. Claims he was at the farmers market and a friend gave it to
him
and figured  I could use them.

Place must be looking bare is all I  can think of....LOL!
