Yes, I’m very late posting this today.
I was cleaning. Honestly… stop laughing. I know how.
And I just woke up this morning in a mood to clean! I vacuumed the dining room, mopped the laundry room, dusted baseboards, cleaned the refrigerator, reorganized our movies, shampooed the sofa, and polished the coffee table. I even got out the little brushes and tools for the vacuum and used them. No need to panic. I didn’t alphabetize the movies or clean under the sofa. My children need not call or email. I think it’s a phase that will pass.
Ironic that my mom cleaned like that every week! She moved furniture and turned sofa cushions and washed curtains. I’m just a slacker. I do the basics, but when it comes to serious cleaning I usually wait until spring break or summer vacation. I can always find something else to do with my time and energy. So please do not try to eat off my floor. I don’t want any of my friends to be sick.
I guess one of the reasons I cleaned this morning was because I figured out that I couldn’t go to WalMart until after nine. I really needed a set of prints from the one-hour lab and they don’t open until 10am. Wish they had “summer hours”... hint, hint to anyone who knows anyone who works there. I must say that Monday morning on a hot, windy summer day must be the time to shop because there were very few people in the store. Just the way I like it!
I spent part of the afternoon creating a terrarium for my classroom. I’ve never had much luck with houseplants in my room so I want to try this and see if it survives. I used a huge plastic container that once held Halloween treats. I also transplanted several of my older houseplants. I commented to Gary just yesterday that I have one plant that is three years old and it has grown very little. I moved it to a different location about two months ago and now it has a new sprout! Plants constantly surprise me.
So, nothing exciting today- just a cleaner house. Lol I bought a new filing cabinet today and I’m going to do a major overhaul of my office closet tomorrow. I had planned to do it this afternoon, but I was too tired after my trip to town. I told you…slacker!
Have a great evening!
