So, I decide it’s about time to do some real Spring Cleaning. You know, the kind of top to bottom, cleaning and dusting every crack and cranny kind of Spring Cleaning.
One must not approach this sort of thing lightly, in my opinion, so I start by first making a list of everything that needs to be done. Wouldn’t want to go to all this effort and then miss something, right?
Notepad for my list…. check… pen…. check… hmmm… glass of wine(?)… check
I sit down and survey my surroundings and start making notes. There’s the usual with the floors, bathrooms, laundry. Then there’s the windows, the corners of the window frames, the base boards…
First, I need to refill my wine glass…
Hmmm… looking around… ceiling fans (dang, need a step ladder), now with the step ladder, there’s those high corners in the ceiling.
Who the heck invented cathedral ceilings, anyway? Sheesh!
Oh! Need some more wine (maybe I should have just gone with tequila instead. How can you go wrong with tequila?)
Cobwebs… there are cobwebs up there in those ceiling corners. Come to think of it, I’ve never seen a Cob crawling around before. I’d sure hate to destroy a habitat and risk making a whole family of Cobs homeless.
Come to think of it, who’s Big Idea was it to even do this Spring Cleaning stuff? My Mom sure had some other ideas that turned out to not be the best ideas in the world.
I’m think’n Spring isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I think I’ll just skip straight to Summer and go to the beach instead. Yeah, that’s what I’ll do.
Now, where did I pack that thermos for my tequila?
