The way I see it, there are two ways to handle the accumulation of dust on your stuff:

A) You can just keep movin', movin', movin' such that dust cannot settle. This has the added benefit that moss cannot grow on your stuff.

B) Once every year, you can take the sleeve of the sweater you're wearing and thoroughly wipe the dust around until stuff looks nearly dust-free. This has the added benefit of, well, not much unless you count not having to send those really annoying little postcards into the USPS to have your mail forwarded.

I certainly know some people who tend to choose A. I, for worse or better, have apparently chosen B.

Also, my blogging skills leave much to be desired.

There should be a switch on your shop vac. Switch it to ‘in’ instead of ‘out’ and that should help! It sounds as if you are using your shop vac incorrectly and thus, creating more dust than normal.

If you are related to your mom you just let the dust rest. After all these years it’s just a part of the decor!

If you don’t move anything you’ll never know it’s dusty

My method is a variant of B. I use my long-sleeve T-shirt instead because I don’t like to dry clean my sweater more often than necessary.

Is this a family trait? I seem to be in the second category as well.
