Get Ready to Party! First Annual No Housework Party

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I don't like to do housework.  I avoid it every chance I get.  I'll use any excuse to procrastinate and put off the housework for another day.  Which is why when Jenn from Coolest Family on the Block contacted me about co-hosting a No Housework Party for National No Housework Day on April 7th, how could I say no?  I mean did she even have to ask?!

Here's the best part.  We are inviting all of you to party right along with us!

Hosted by the Coolest Non-Domestic Mamas on the Block
You my dear readers, get to be part of something very special.  In celebration of this most glorious day of all days on the calendar Jenn from Coolest Family on the Block and I are teaming up to host the first annual No Housework Party!  Oh yes.  Not much will be different for Jenn and I since we avoid housework every chance we get…but for those of you dedicated domestic goddesses…we’re giving you the day off!
 This Thursday, April 7, stop by and link up your post.

Now I know some of you are having the same reaction I did when I first heard the words "No Housework."  You are doing your little happy dance!  I am dancing right along with you.  We get a break!  For a whole day!  We finally have a real excuse to kick those dust bunnies right back under the couch.  They can lurk there for another day.  What's one more day gonna hurt?

There are others out there who are having an entirely different reaction.  When you heard the words "No Housework" the blood drained from your face, your limbs went numb, and you fought back the urge to lose your lunch.  "No housework for a whole day?"  You are horrified by the very prospect!  You can't possibly go an entire day without polishing the candlesticks or fluffing the pillows.  This just might bring on the Apocalypse!  How can the earth keep spinning if you can't fold the laundry or wash the dishes?

There is good news for the Domestically Challenged and the Neat Freak's alike.  You are all invited to the party!  We don't discriminate.  There's room here for all of us.  Just shove that big pile of stuff aside a little . . . there plenty of room!
For the Domestically Challenged
Do you hate housework, are you no good at it, or are there simply just not enough hours in the day to do it all?  You’re not alone.  All over the country non-domestics just like you are sweeping the cobwebs aside (figuratively…we don’t sweep for real, silly!), stepping out into the world and declaring, “I hate housework!”.  We’re walking right past our piles of organized chaos and confessing to the world, “I have better things to do than dishes.”  Join us on Thursday to link up any of your domestically challenged blog posts.  Show us what you do instead of housework, how you plan on celebrating No Housework Day, or that time you tried to clean something and it backfired on you.

For the Neat Freaks
If you’re reading this while wiping your computer screen with a special cloth…you probably need to declare a holiday more than any of us (put the cloth down and back away, you weirdo).  Can’t take off a day of cleaning?  You might feel like you don’t belong here, but you couldn’t be more wrong, my friend!  You are welcome to link up any of your housework posts…make us feel guilty and show us your tips, tricks, and lovely organized closets.  We’ll call you a show off and give you a ;) winky to your face and then we’ll probably talk about you behind your back…but seriously, you’re totally welcome to link up!

I know the wheels are in motion now!  You're getting excited!  Well . . . what are you waiting for?  Get to writing that post.  Don't procrastinate.  You can save that for Thursday.  After you meet back here or at Coolest Family on the Block for the party of course!
