It was like spring outside today, bright blue sky, brilliant yellow sun, with just the right touch of coolness to the air. It was the perfect day for a run.
But sadly I didn’t have time for a run today. I was too busy doing this…
I waited an hour to see if
the a cleaning lady was going to show up, but apparently she got lost. Hey a girl can dream. Don’t you just love my pink gloves though? We got them at work for Breast Cancer Awareness Day. I think they are fabulous!
I might not have a cleaning lady, but I do have a wonderful mother who graciously offered to
clean my entire house take the little guy out for a few hours. Since my husband was working, I had the house to myself. I cranked up the music and set out to get this house clean.
Now I live like I’m always expecting a pop in guest so my house is never what anyone would perceive as dirty. However, life has been all kinds of hectic lately and I just haven’t been able to do more than spot clean and vacuum incessantly. I ♥ my Featherweight Bissell! I also love to do laundry. I very rarely have to tackle Mount Laundry because I am always throwing in a load.
So today was all about getting down and dirty with the dirt or actually dust in my house’s case. I am trying not to revisit the rooms I have already cleaned because I know the dust will have reappeared rendering my efforts useless. I made a lot of headway today. My house is not exactly large. In fact it is a quaint old petite colonial. I just had so much to do there was no way to get through it all in one day especially given the fact that I worked last night and have to work again tonight.
I will just have to do the bathroom and Carlos’ room tomorrow. There are actually very good reasons that neither of those rooms were cleaned. Carlos is now napping and I just cleaned his room at the beginning of the week. It could still use a dusting though. My excuse for not cleaning the bathroom is simply, I hate cleaning the bathroom. There I said it! I absolutely hate cleaning the bathroom. I despise cleaning the toilet. My old ugly floor tiles just never seem free from fly away hairs, dust and toddler pee. The bathroom will get a quick wipe down in a minute but I refuse to go any deeper than that. I have faith that a cleaning lady will show up tomorrow.
My husband is currently eating a crumbly granola bar in the living room with no napkin or plate to catch the crumbs. Hmmm I think I know who will be cleaning the bathroom tomorrow.
Horrible photo I know. With each day that passes I become convinced that a DSLR camera is necessary.
Awww but who am I kidding I know exactly who will be cleaning the bathroom tomorrow.
Carlos took this photo a while ago. So perfectly expressive at this moment! I must go to bed soon. At least I have a 5K to look forward to after cleaning the dreaded bathroom tomorrow. The weather looks clear and a little colder tomorrow. Excellent running weather. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.
