Spring Cleaning

September 22, 2012

Lauren, Lloyd, They can't all be winners.

I’m not sure if we are very late or very early for spring cleaning, but more things got cleaned in our house today than normally get cleaned in a week. Maybe more than a week, unless Lauren is cleaning things without me knowing about it.

Really, that’s not likely, because I am utterly fascinated by cleaning. I could sit and watch someone clean for hours. But today Lauren somehow tricked me into also cleaning.

The floor needed mopping.

Furniture even got moved around. We moved the trunk to vacuum the rug, and I said, “Our goal is to get the rest of it that middle color.” Lauren insisted that it was faded from the sun, as she has actually been vacuuming lately.

It's got to be sun damage.

After vacuuming, she insisted that it must have been a haze of shredded tissue particles from the kittens. Sure, Lauren.

Whoa. That was dirty.

Luckily, we got finished cleaning in time for nap time.

    You two do a really nice job of cleaning! I could use help like that!

    I have typed a ton of comments and decided not to use them. I am comment blocked today. And now I’m going to get to Bible study late, dang it.

    Here are the ones I remember:

    1. What if you taped Swiffer dusters to the kittens and turned them loose?
    2. That is almost enough to get me to clean my house. Almost.
    3. I keep thinking my house would look so much cleaner without furniture.
    4. That rug looks clean enough to eat off of. Or to shred tissues on.
    5. I can’t think of a cleaning word that shares a vowel sound with “fall”.

    Way to go, Sommerers. I’d love to be inspired like that. Oh, wait, we’re going to clean out the garden this afternoon. Never mind.


  4. Lauren Said on:

    I would just like to say that the floor is clean, and that is all. The rest of the house looks exactly the same -- messy.


  5. Peggy Said on:

    I would say you two are definately early for spring 2013 cleaning!

    Way to go! That rug looks brand spankin’ new!

    I still have spring 2009 cleaning on my to do list.
