Semi-Annual Cleaning Frenzy
My parents are coming for an overnight visit tomorrow, and my wife and I are currently in a mad scramble to make our home presentable. Adding to our madness, our friends and next-door neighbors are throwing a BBQ party, and we’ve committed to bring brownies (my specialty) and a fruit pie (my wife’s specialty).
So now that I’ve paid the bills, done the grocery shopping, stocked up on beer and wine, picked up the laundry, made up the guest room, cleaned the cat litter, swept the kitchen, put away the fall/winter clothes and brought down the spring/summer clothes … I’m taking a break before I feed the cats, dust the living room, unclutter the shelves in the living room and kitchen, bake brownies, and do the dishes.
After all that, maybe I can proof a few more pages of my The 4400 novel before I go to bed.
