Suggestions From The Suggestion Box That Went Straight To The Shredder:Paying your kids to pick up insect carcassesNewfangled green "enviro" cleaners versus traditional products.

My half serious/half humorous article idea is this....How does one keep one's home sparkly clean and inviting all summer with heathen children running amuck in it all day?My top suggestions for keeping my home clean in the summer (and this is no lie) -1. camps (lots of 'em) and 2. leaving right after breakfast every morning and not coming home until dinner time. It keeps things reasonably tidy. :)
You know what I want? I want to instead of going to a candle party or a marital aids party or a scrap/crap party go to a 'help someone else paint their living room' party. I would show up for that. You'd only need to invite a few people--preferably able-bodied women who can help move furniture. You could do it in 2 weeks: week one = prep; week two = painting. If you attend 3 parties for someone else, you are then welcome to host your own. Doesn't this sound like a good idea? Tell me where my logic is faulty here, Payney. Fix the errors and there is your next article.
