Spring Cleaning: Do you or don’t you?
Okay- this inquiring mind wants to know – how many of you actually do spring cleaning? You know, take down the “drapes” (do we even use them anymore?), send the rugs for cleaning, wash AND wax the floors (on hands and knees), wipe down the walls, windows, ceilings; And oh my gosh – the baseboards.
How many of you wash all the comforters from the beds, replace the pillows, have the carpets cleaned, suck the crap from the heat ducts…..
I mean, why can’t I do the fun stuff – like: hammer back in the long nails on the gutters, ride or push the mower around the yard and get to smell the newly cut grass, pretend to clean the garage, clean the patio furniture (sort of), set up the hammock (and try it out to see if it works), pull the screens down in the windows (and fix any holes in them), replace the storm door with a screen door, climb the ladder to clean the gutters, and finally how come I can’t say “Honey, I’m tired from working on all this stuff, I need a nap?”
Oh right – that was me last year – Okay – this year I promise to turn over a new leaf (not one that fell from the tree though – those have already been raked, bagged and taken to the landfill thank you very much)
So really – which do you do? Or, are you like me and do both?
