Today I am thankful for cleaning.
Okay, maybe I should start this way… I swear it is actually me posting this. I, being of sound mind and body do hereby declare that this document is my actual blog. I’m not being held against my will or being blackmailed to write this. This is my honest to God blog for the day. Just wanted to clear that up before you all thought that I was crazy.
This morning I woke up to the sounds of Dominic cleaning the bathroom. He was never asked, he just decided it would be a nice thing to do for us. Turns out that he had already had cleaned the one downstairs. After he was done he proceeded to clean the floors too!
To be clear, I have fully interrogated him and have determined that he hasn’t broken anything or done anything to be in trouble. It does make me nervous about what he may be plotting! 🤔
Not sure why, but his cleaning got me in a cleaning mood. Seems like this happens only once every couple of presidential elections so I decided to take advantage of the feeling. While Becky and Gavin were at yoga Dominic and I were cleaning away and having fun doing it.
I fired up some great music (Bob Marley followed by the Goo Goo Dolls) and proceeded to start a deep clean of the kitchen. It was peaceful, relaxing, and felt great to be making progress. There was something that felt really good about organizing the chaos and putting it to order.
Don’t get any crazy expectations – this mood doesn’t hit often and I’m sure it won’t happen again for quite some time, but this morning it felt really good! Who knows, maybe I will have to consider doing this more often… Or, more realistically, I’ll have to remember that it can be fun and peaceful to do when Becky reminds me that I haven’t help clean in quite a while. 😉
