Introducing...Mundane Monday!

I've decided to begin a new feature at The Big Finn's Big Blog! I'm calling it Mundane Monday. Please notice that I specifically did not say that it's going to be a WEEKLY feature. Please, no Tuesday morning "Where was this week's Mundane Monday feature?" comments - I'll just delete 'em.

A couple of months ago, I was accused by a friend (who shall remain anonymous) of thinking that my life was better than his/hers because of all the blogging I do about "glamorous things" like our international travel, wine tastings, etc. My comeback was: "Would you rather read about me doing things like cleaning King's litter box, emptying the dishwasher, or taking out the garbage?"

Hey...why not?

So, here's the first installment of Mundane Monday:

...vacuuming the living room!


How glamorous is that? See? We don't even have a cleaning lady.

Of course, that's because I don't want to let any commoners into our apartment...

sounds good to me... But how do we know you're actually doing the housework and not just looking like you are. ;-)

Oh, the glamour! The glitz!

The Big Finn said...

ET - Good point!

Jul - Just wait. You ain't seen nuttin' yet!

Sara said...

ha, i think half of my blog is mundane monday :)

can you come over and clean our place?

Michael said...

Very cool that your windows open from the top!

I thought that was King on the side of the couch until I looked at the big version.

Un-Swiss Miss said...

No cleaning lady, but do you have a housekeeper? Or, perhaps, a chatelaine? Your omissions are very suspicious!

The Big Finn said...

Michael - King was just out of the picture running away from the vacuum cleaner like a sissy!

USM- Nope, just me. I do most of the stuff around the house except for weekend cooking which Mrs. TBF does because she likes to cook, and I often get lazy right after eating dinner so Mrs. TBF ends up doing some dishwasher loading and washing of a few pots and pans.

The person who "shall remain anonymous" fessed up. I deleted his/her comment because I would rather that he/she remains anonymous.

No big deal, but I would rather keep things anonymous, in some circumstances, so that it doesn't inhibit me from blogging about certain things.

how about doing the laundry on monday, then coming back upstairs to find that cat has once again pissed on the bed while you were downstairs.
