Cleaning, or supposed to be...

I've got some of my new music in the CD player and it's nice. Shelby Lynne is kind of bluesy. Bethany Dillon was folk-ish. Now, i think it's Shelby Lynne again and its a nice mellow groovy kind of sound. This music is not motivating me to clean however, which is what I really need to do. Then I need to get some papers in order for a meeting we have next weekend with our financial adviser. Maybe I need to wait until Jonny Lang start playing so he can inspire me to get moving. What about you? Do you listen to music to help you get moving on housework?

ABBA works well for me. I have a friend who is in her 50's she likes to clean to Madonna.

Its been too long ot remember cleaning to music. Music tends to be distracting to kids doing schoolwork and now I rarely think of putting it on.

Guess what. I used to do my homework with a TV show playing in the background. I was able to keep track of the TV show and I felt like it helped me concentrate on my homework too. Maybe because I didn't feel to be shut up in a quiet room doing homework. It would have been distracting if the TV were in front of me, but it was in the living room behind me.

But, I know what you mean...

Music definitely motivates me to clean.

Anything upbeat helps me get into the housework. I remember a few years ago I was in a job I really hated, and I would have to put on a Tom Jones CD in the morning just to get me out the door.

I have to listen to super upbeat music then I really get into it.. Maybe some r and b/rock that kind of thing!

I like fast music while I clean. Maybe Toby Mac or something.

It helps a lot. I often put on music while cleaning.

What else is an MP3 player for? ;o)
Clasical is best for me to clean with. Wave those arms like you are conducting and wash windows!

music is not helpful to me to clean....I like it very quiet with NO
kids or husbands anywhere to be found.
