I am such a stinker!

I have a friend (I won't call her out - Sandra) that told me over 5 years ago to just splash some Pine Sol around the house before my hubby came home and he would think I had been cleaning and working all day...so every once in a while I do that and it does make his mood lighter when he gets home...well, this weekend I got sucked into watching all the drama on Big Brother and haven't done hardly any cleaning, so I decided to take Monday off, and go window shopping and maybe a little walking and have a cup of joe at the new coffee shop.

Came home and realized 'he' would be home in 10 minutes...so I grabbed my Pine Sol and rubbed down the doorknobs in every room...house smelled like I had cleaned all day! and yes , his mood was awesome as soon as he walked in even though the house is a wreck! I am lying in bed last night and I cannot stop giggling about the 'trick' and he's asking me what's going on...and I just mumbled my day was funny and fun...you gals gotta try this sometime... (my house is not filthy, there are some areas that need a good scrubbing but I do that like on a binge cleaning week, then I forgo it till next binge cleaning week...my house is always in a craft uproar though...and I really need some TRICK MIRRORS to take care of that problem!

Haha. That's an adorably deceptive. =D Perhaps it's something to do with the scent of the pine-sol itself? Kind of like smelling lavender makes people feel more relaxed and ready for bed?
