Okay, OT and wholly Cheyenne-centric: I returned from my often harrowing visiting circuit pretty flipping apprehensive as to what forms of disorder and details which are apparently invisible to those with Y chromosomes or under the age of 10. Mind you, Todd is super tidy. He'd never let the marinara sauce boil over and stick on the stove top but it would never occur to him to remove the stove knobs and wipe underneath them with Lysol. Oh well, I arrived to see him wiping the kitchen down, a warm smile from our new washer and dryer set, which did all the laundry. The dishes were done, the house was dusted, and Todd got the kids through almost all the lessons for the month. I mean shit, not bad. I swept the laundry room, and spent literally two hours paying my dues for my criminal over-packing. Why is everything I own BLACK??? It was heaven hanging all my crap in my neurotic manner with one stupid arm.
Today is Quinn's 11th birthday so I spent all night giving the house the deluxe once-over so as to break out the stramers and liberate his 900 balloons from Todd's Jeep. I shan't worry about cleaning again until 55 people flood my house, ravenous for cake and to heap presents on him, leaving me with sticky plates and garbage and a semi-fake smile, lol. Luckily he's getting mostly cards with cash so that's a load off. Sadly Quinn has abandoned his nine year.tradition of eating at McGrath's in favour of APPLEBEE'S??? Thank the baby Jesus for Xanax, omg omg omg.
So in the spirit of birthday mayhem, consider the following:
-Euthanize the balloons in a heap on the floor from the birthday two months ago.
-Get those appliances humming, be grateful that you don't have a pot o'hot water and a wash tub.
-Clean some serious paper products. Toss, recycle, shred, whatevah, DO IT!
-Wash entryway/all throw rugs.
-Windex bathroom mirrors because mine really need it.
-Have a heart-to-heart with your closet and remove at least five items for a friend, swap, or for fabric, but we all have.hella excessive clothing. I am the guiltiest offender.
-Take a gander at floors and enlist brooms, Swiffers, and/or vacuums as necessary.
-Great idea from Debe: Spot treating the couch! I hope you don't need it but if you do, get some spot treatment or even soapy water and.show no mercy.
It will be a great day if you can put a dent in this list, but I know you can. Prove me right.
