Oh I love my log home, I surely do.
But here's the deal, peeps...there are a certain number of things that come with living in this cozy cabin that maybe should be considered before rushing into cabin living. First and foremost, the biggest drawback...dusting. Oh yeah, I said it...and I'll say it again...DUSTING. Now, my mom will surely enthusiastically agree that I have never been one to "love" any sort of homemaking duties that involve cleaning...but I persevere because, well...no one else is going to do it now, are they?
Go ahead Mom...can I get an hearty "Amen" here? It's alright, you can say it. I won't hold it against you...well, maybe I won't. Jess, you can go ahead and say it. I WILL hold it against you, though...I'm just warnin' ya. Hey, at least I'm honest.
This task should probably be done every 3 months if you're a clean freak. Every 6 months if you are just your normal everyday individual with a life. And well, if you're like me, you need some kind of motivation...a deadline, if you will. You really just need to be scared to death that someone might actually SEE that you don't keep up with all that dusting. So anyway, PARTLY because of the halloween party we're having tomorrow night, and PARTLY because I'm hosting the Bunco group next month for our holiday party, and PARTLY because it's been *ahem* "way too long"...I got out the huge stepladder and my Dyson and started dusting all of the log walls, beams, and ceiling fans in the house. This is not a feat for the faint of heart, I assure you! There are heights involved...and dustbunnies of disporportionate sizes. And dead bugs, too. And it takes so long...DAYS!!! And you know why it sucks so badly? Because you can't just wipe the logs off, oh no...youhave to sweep them with the brush attachment. See, the logs aren't sanded smooth...they're rough, so they catch on dustcloths and the like, leaving little fuzzies and strings hanging on the logs! And that's almost worse than the dust! But alas, it was time to get 'er done! And O.M.G...it was worse than I even expected! Actually, the walls themselves weren't too bad...but the beams??? UGH!!!
Can I get a witness??----------->And right in the middle of working on the king and queen posts in my bedroom, I looked down from my perch and actually sat for a minute and considered what it would be like to just jump off the top of my ladder onto my cozy bed below...I wonder if it would be fun? But it might break my box springs. Yeah, it would DEFNITELY break my box springs. But it was a fun fantasy while it lasted. Anyone else want to try?
I can't believe I'm actually putting these pictures out here for you all to see! But you're my friends, right? No judgements?? It's ok, Jen, we've all been there?? Helll-oooo, anyone out there?
