Taking Tuesday off Too?
Normally my ego would be sore to see no comments, but let's be real, it's over a hundred degrees and I'm surprised no one has come to my door with a bomb for the mere suggestion that we clean.
No no, I get it.
But OCD is immune to temperature, so I was unable to lie on my linoleum floor and order my children to spray me with cold water. I finished everything on my list except window sills, which I was told I'd be killed if I opened even a crack, and going through the car wash. Just plain forgot. But I did vacuum my car, in the peak hour. It's a good thing I'm fast.
The pain of the heat doesn't bother me nearly as much as my hair frizzing out like some sort of insane person who needs to be in restraints. And being sweaty is never okay.
TODAY I AM:
-Folding two loads of laundry.
-Trying to shake my breakfast regimen up a bit. But probably won't.
-Wiping down the washer/dryer.
-Sweeping the laundry room floor, which is our entrance. We win the white trash award.
-Organize Tupperware drawer.
-Clean kitchen window.
-Search for cobwebs with a fine tooth comb.
-Drink three gallons of water instead of my usual two.
-Put clothes away.
-Try to take advantage of kids' resiliency and see what I can make them do. Today I asked Quinn, who had stayed home alone while I brought lunch back, to meet me at the car (which I assumed meant garage), as I had things to carry. So I pull into the driveway, and he walks out in his boxer briefs for the entire world to see. I laughed so hard, and then shooed him in and reminded him about pedophiles.
-Dust all fans.
POR MIS AMIGOS CALIENTE:
-You guys tell me if you're ready for challenges, lol. Try to soothe your eyes with a few quick tasks.
-TEPID SHOWERS BABY!
-Hanging in the kiddie pool will minimize indoor destruction.
-Accept any and all offers of visits to friends with AC. Unfriend those with no AC. :)
-Clean out the refrigerator and/or freezer? That's cool.
That's all she wrote. Stay cool.
