Wedding Housework

Mom and I have been cleaning the house all day to prepare for our family that comes this Friday for my sister's wedding on Saturday, only 4 days away! Mom told me that gram and gramp will be flying in along with my Uncle Mark, Aunt Kathy and Hallie, my nine year old cousin!
Hey, I just realized that we're about the same age! Hallie was 9 in September and I'll be 9 in July! Cool! We can have lots of girl talk - maybe even a pillow fight!

Hoover came out of the closet early this morning and made lots of noise for too long a period of time as far as I'm concerned!He was running around upstairs and downstairs and all over the place driving me nuts!

Next was that darn dustmop - the one that steals my toys! I can't figure out why my toys want to jump on the dustmop and go for a ride but they do and I have to constantly get up and rescue them so they don't get too far away from my watchful eye! One of these days I'm going to rip that dustmop to shreds!Mom was upstairs setting up this fancy bed that comes out of a box. It has these neat legs that unfold and accordian out and a mattress that blows inself up and presto, you have a bed! It's really pretty cool! I didn't get to help with that part - I stayed on the first floor so I could guard my stuff, but I did hear some funny sounding motor noises going on above my head!

Next was the dusting - mom's favorite chore - UGH!!! Mom says dusting is a waste of her precious time because you spend all this time making the furniture shine and the next day the dusty film is right back so she feels that it's a senseless chore! Hey, Cuz doesn't need dusting!


Mitch has been outside helping dad organize the center bay of the barn where the food will go! That's the best part of this whole wedding - the FOOD!!!

Oh BTW, you keep asking if Mitch and I are part of the wedding party and the answer is no! For some reason my sister and Jim seem to think that two pre-school age kids can do a better job than we can! Imagine! Mitch would make the perfect ring bearer, don't you think? He's got that puppy black coat already and it's the perfect tuxedo coat! He's got his new bigboy collar and I think he's more handsome than any little kid! Don't you think that he can be trusted not to eat the rings? They don't smell or look good so why bother! And I love flowers and tossing petals doesn't take any training! Heck, I do that all the time!

It's a very rainy wet day today so we're glad that we're getting this "fun" stuff out of the way! The rain usually makes the weeds pop so we'll be out in the garden tomorrow with our butts in the aire makin' those gardens shine for the wedding!

Until next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie

Hi, Maggie.
The wedding day its almost here! All your family most be very busy preparing everything, right?
I hate that Hoover thing too! Its noise scares me a lot! My mom thinks the same about the dust, its always on the furniture!
Its so sad you and Mitch won't be part of the wedding I am sure you two could do a great job!
Have a nice day

Maggie, You and Mitch would be sooo much better than hooman kids, cuter , better behaved,certainly more fun, they're missing a golden opportunity to have an even better wedding than 'I'm sure it will be.
Oh well, since you don't have to do the flower and ring stuff, more chance to inspect the food table heheheh
Hope you get lots of goodies. And much happiness to your family
smoochie kisses

Hey Maggie -

We are keeping our fingers and paws crossed for good wedding weather!!!

I can understand your sister delgating the rings to humans - we clearly remember a few years back a Labrador swallowing the wedding bands - I believe the groom gave the bride an xray of the rings!!

Well as they say all things must come to pass and I guess the rings did too - ick!!

We hope you and Mitch have a great week, keep dry and have a happy wedding!!

Dory and Liza

So Maggie, I feel really dumb, but WHO is your sister? If your sister is getting married, shouldn't you be the maid of honor? It it Mitch's sister too? Well, family is family, dog or human, and you deserve to be in the wedding party. You can dress up in your finest collar and look all fancy. I know you have good manners, right?

Rosco the wonder mutt said...

Oh boy, a wedding! I hope you and Mitch get lots of food!

Lots of love,
Rosco

Busy busy! I don't mind the Dyson that my mama uses to vacuum our house, in fact just yesterday she got my tail stuck in it! My TAIL! It was sort of my fault because she kept saying "excuse me" and I kept laying there nappin' and refused to move so she could vacuum under me. So she tried to vacuum around me and sucked up my tail!

Oh my goodness. But I'm still not scared of the vacuuum. He and I are cool. As long as he gives me back the treats I had hidden on the carpet that he stole yesterday.

wally said...

Hey Maggie, Visitors! I hope that means loads of snacks. If you can't be in the wedding party I'm sure they can put you to work testing the reception food. And you definitely will need to taste test the cake!

Congrats to your human getting married, too!

wally.

Ivy said...

hey hey maggie! good thing you haf a watchful eye to keep track of your toys or they wud ride off out of sight on the dust mop. i think you wud made a great wedding party... so forget the humans and throw your own dog party! while they are all busy marching down the aisle you can grab the food and run like the wind!

p.s. if you get caught dont tell the peepol that it wuz my idea. tee hee!

Putter said...

Bogart said...

I personally think that you and Mitch would be better than tiny humans, but hey, as long as some food falls off of the table for you at some point it's all good!

Love,

Scruffy said...

Hey Maggie

Your house sounds like a hive of activity. You must be getting real excited about the wedding. Never mind that you can't be part of the wedding. Just make sure you are part of the party that helps with eating of the food.
