Be sure to sign up...

I want my next house to be the church. Because every Saturday the 3-5 families who signed up would come to clean it. And it would only take 45 minutes. And all the floors would be swept and mopped and vacuumed. And the windows would get washed. And the trash emptied. And the bathrooms cleaned. And the t.p. and paper towels re-stocked. And the chalk boards cleaned. And all the chairs stacked and straightened. And it would be dusted. And I would have a library. I have always wanted a library. And I could watch the Free to Choose stuff whenever I wanted. And easels. I would have easels. And I would have a gym. And a stage. And a huge bathtub. And I could warm any meal I wanted to in the kitchen.

I'm sending around the sign-up sheet tomorrow. I don't think my ward will mind. You can get people to sign up for pretty much anything.

Oh yeah, I want that to be my house too!! Only mine wouldn't have a big bathtub, we'd still have to go to a neighbors for that. I like your idea. I wonder if I could sell anyone on it here.

that is hilarious. and true...you can get people to sign up for just about anything. and thank you for keeping the sign-up to your ward... although i love you i don't really feel like coming out to clean your house. unless you are sick or having a baby or something similar.

Thats an Awesome idea..I don't know why I didn't think of it. Honestly though, we discovered a guy living in the church once. It was one of the older chapels that keeps their chairs under the stage. They chairs for whatever reason had been moved off location and he moved in under the stage, coming out after dark when meeting where over.....sad. But obviously he knew what he was doing..

You would also have enough rooms for everyone to have their own bedroom as well as anyone who might be visiting. AND, you'd have an instant communication system. If someone was in trouble, just turn on the mike and all the speakers and noone could claim to not hear you. I'm thinking you've hit on something.

What an awesome idea!Maybe they'd let you go to all the meetings in your jammies, too, since it's your house. Wouldn't that be fun? You'll have a good excuse for sleeping through some of those sacrament meeting talks. They're not boring, you're just too comfy in your jammies.

I love the fact that you can "warm" up your meal, but be sure not to cook in it ;) Oh yeah, and I just found out that the Stake Center up here had a homeless man living in their baptisimal font- kinda sad, but wierd at the same time...obviously the cleaners were not checking in there each week!

I like the idea. By the way in the Amish community their houses are their churches. They rotate around and when it is your turn to host church all the ladies come to your house and get it all spic and span for church. I don't suppose it would be worth it though to have to do up my dress up with straight pins.

Genius! Just be sure your sign up has a cute font and maybe a border, and no one will even notice.
