In about five minutes you're all going to have to join forces and clean the cinders that remain when I locate Blogger headquarters and burn it to the ground. I am incensed over the comment failure issue but ever-so-proud of my faithful readers, letting me know, and in some cases, *see* their efforts. But yeah the configuration of Moxieclean is apparently fraught with untold complications. Sorry.
One genre, so-to-speak, of cleaning even we OCD fanatics abhor is day-after-arriving-home-from-a-trip cleaning. All the more blissful is heading right back out onto the road. One must gut one's suitcase, as everything feels sour, do the fastest load of laundry ever, which doesn't even count as home laundry, clean the water bottles out of the car, realize that just because the clothes you had on your first trip became boring shit, doesn't mean your closet has *anything* to offer. Fabulous. Stocking Q-Tips, charging phones, checking email, racing through some dishes, dusting, folding, straightening, dyeing, unloading gifts and souvenirs, tucking away christmas presents, shaking out rugs, charging the GPS, washed toothbrush containers, blogged, remembered UNDERWEAR for the next leg of the journey, and omg, a coat! The unpacking sucks, but the turn-around is harrowing. Thank god for lists.
You, my lovelies, don't have to scream at the dishwasher to hurry the f*** up with your water bottles and toothbrush and soap holders, but I thought you might:
-Do the real home laundry...that counts.
-Do the dishes--they count too.
-Take a close look at your kitchen window sill, typically above the sink. Wash the glass, scour the track, use a toothbrush or toothpick, and some Lysol. Then make sure the wood trim is wiped down and de-cluttered. These surfaces are ickily prone to knick-knack pattywhack and we have to give it an aesthetic makeover.
-CHALLENGE: Open your refrigerator, remove items shelf-by-shelf, wipe shelves down, or run them in the dishwasher if possible, toss all tossable shit, and organize organize organize! Bonus points if you take the garbage out immediately following.
-Vacuum all carpeted flooring.
-Wipe as many baseboards as you can--with a wipe or damp cloth--until you go blind or hate my guts.
-Now look high, making sweeps and scrubbing marred areas, until your arms fall off.
-Wipe down five surfaces; dressers, tables, counters, etc.
-Surprise me! Do something horrible and I will post it!
Es muy divertirse!
