You knew it was coming. One of these days I was bound to notice that you've neglected your window sills and ceiling fans for far too long. Today's the day.
I don't know what I'll find upon my return, as Todd had built a veritable prison for Bella out of our furniture before I left, because if she has one accident one the carpet we will ... well it just can't happen. Also there was newspaper, and like a crate and food dishes in the house. That's an awful lot of accoutrements for a puppy the size of my hand, damn. I hope she is all trained and says please and thank you by 3:30.
Suffice it to say, I will fill whatever gaps await me. I already know I need to:
-Rid our cupboards of mugs and glasses. Todd called pleading with me to thin out our Starbucks collection, and reminded me that four POM glasses breaking does not equal an urgent need for 700 random glasses I find when perusing Target.
-Shampoo the carpet, depending on the Bella report.
-Get all laundry done and folded.
-Find homes for the kids' outgrown clothing. I'm so sick of consigning.
-Vacuum/detail the car.
-Put all clothes away.
-Wonder why getting rid of 40% of my clothing afforded me no space.
-Organize christmas presents, as I've collected things from everywhere.
-Sweep. (Todd forgets.)
But for you my pretties:
-All laundry. Serious.
-All dishes. Serious. Anything screaming for a new home? Anything chipped or broken = buh-bye.
-All window sills, obviously, lol.
-Ceiling fan(s), or A/C vents, heat vents. Just all things Venti, hee hee. (I've been eating there since he was in the Reed and Todd rides with Dino, so there.)
-Baseboards. This includes the wood as well as the little strip of carpet alongside the wood you know the vacuum snubs.
-Fixtures, you'll thank me.
-Do five things that are aesthetically pleasing to you. Anywhere.
That's a wrap. Better right? You know it. A Moxieclean christmas is a merry christmas indeed. :)
