It's that time of the year again. Spring! Birds chirping. Flowers blooming. Blankets and winter coats going in storage. It's a time that makes you open the windows, let in the sun and then--YIKES!--you see what your house really looks like.
|How did it get so dirty??|
So guess what I was doing this week? Cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning.
Ugh. I'm tired. Muscles I haven't exercised in ages are killing me. My nails are chipped, grimy shadows of their former selves. My lower back is sending out SOS signals and begging for pain meds. I swear there were corners in some rooms that looked like alien landscapes. It was so bad I ran out of detergent. Twice!
The thing I'm celebrating is that when I finally finish, I'll be so happy with my fresh, clean apartment! I'm not there yet, but I'm dreaming of it ...
Do you do Spring Cleaning every year or have to re-organize things? What's the easiest job? Do you have one you really hate?
