Announcing the 1st Annual No Housework Party

Hosted by the Coolest Non-Domestic Mamas on the Block!

This Thursday, April 7, is a very important day. A day where women all over the country lay down their mops, clap their dishpanned hands together and exclaim…”Today is No Housework Day!”

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 Rachael from Non-Domestic Mama and myself are teaming up to host the first annual No Housework Party! Oh yes.
Not much will be different for Rachael 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.

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 tell us about 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!

Start planning how you’re going to celebrate No Housework Day (or if you’re a non-domestic…procrastinate and try to come up with something at the last minute 😉 ) and then meet back here or at Non-Domestic Mama on Thursday to party!

See ya then (leave your broom at home!)

  2. I’m ready! I hope you will send out a reminder! I would hate to forget to not clean my house! 😉


    • haha No we definitely would not want that ;)!

      The “plan” is to post something every day until Thursday and post the linky on Thursday…so yeah there should be some reminders. We’ll also be tweeting and facebooking. Twitter #nohousework

  4. Yessss! I share procrastination with most of my friends! I knew there was something about you!


  5. Girl, after everything that I have cleaned this week… a break is much needed! Thanks for the permission!


  6. WOOOHOOOO an excuse not to clean =) Following from Blog Frog SITS!

  8. LOL – I just told my husband about No Housework Day. His response. ” Well how is that different than any other day for you.”


  9. This sounds like my kind of party, can’t wait to link up!


  10. Looks like fun. I don’t usually need much of an excuse to avoid housework, but it’s always good to have one. You cracked me up with your comments about the Neat Freaks. God love ’em.


I LOVE comments!
