Happy Chinese New Year!

Image: myremi and
January 23 is the Chinese New Year.  And I'm off the hook for doing any kind of cleaning!

Did you know that the Chinese believe that on New Year's Eve, all brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pan and other cleaning equipment are put away.  Sweeping or dusting should not be done on New Year's Day for fear that good fortune will be swept away.

What a relief!  One of my own New Year's resolutions was to take pictures of my dogs with less dog hair in the photos.  You know, so it looks like I do sometimes run the vacuum cleaner at our house.  (I do, I do!)  Well, I won't be running that vacuum today!
Jeffie thinks cleaning is highly over rated!
So, lay down that duster.  Put away that Windex and vacuum cleaner.  Play with those pups and focus on receiving lots of good fortune in 2012, the Chinese year of the Dragon!
