If Spring showers, bring May flowers... then what does Spring cleaning bring? Oh, please say that it brings warm weather, sunshine, new budding trees, and flowers, and brighter days that last longer... and all those things I cannot wait for Spring to come for! Like the smell of fresh air that isn't freezing cold and playing outside with the kids and going for walks and mowing the lawn, love the smell of fresh cut grass.
I have been bite by the Cleaning Bug again! If I wasn't sure there was NO way in HELL that I could be pregnant, and there isn't ANY CHANCE IN HELL, that I am, but thank you very much for your concern... lol, I would think I was nesting. I remember cleaning like this before I had Trevor, I mean frantic cleaning... up till like 1 AM or so during ht week, cleaning my kitchen cabinets with Murphy's Oil Soap and hot water, then going around to the rest of the kitchen to make sure it was going to be just perfect!! Spotless and clean enough to eat off of every. single. solitary. surface!! I was a loon, but then again, I was pregnant and nesting! But, now. Now, what is my excuse?? It is cold and yucky out and I can't open the windows to get some fresh air in here. Maybe that is part of it. I got up today feeling kind of blah... just sick of the winter weather and the new snow and icy covering we just got last night... I didn't think today would be much of a productive day at all.
Then I got a little pep in my step, and I decided to "Spring Clean" the house... for lack of better words. I opened the blinds in the dining room and cleaned it all out, vacuumed then steam cleaned the carpets, vacuumed again and then put everything back cleaning it all as I went along, then I did the same to the girls room. Not emptying their room totally, but moving everything to a elevated place to be able to steam clean the carpets. I put it all back nice and orderly... and now I'm just taking a minutes rest before I decide what to tackle next. :)
Well I guess I should get off my bum and get doing something... since I have the cleaning sickness. ;)
