Today was big time clean-the-house day! Here's the funny part ... when I pull out the vacuum, the kids always ask, "who's coming over?" I guess it never occurs to them that we might want to actually live in a clean house, not just save that look for company. Truth be told, we are having a house full of people here tomorrow for a class, but that's beside point. The dust bunnies were starting to multiply, the cobwebs were getting obnoxious, and the laundry was piling up. So after my morning latte, I turned on the stereo and we got down to business. It always makes it a bit more fun to dust and vacuum with loud music blaring.
So call me crazy, but the one chore I actually like doing ... is laundry! There's just something about putting in dirty, sometimes smelly items, and pulling out clean, fresh smelling warm clothes. I also like to sort everything. Plus, it turns out to be a fun game for my 3-year old. She knows that all the red and pink clothes get their very own pile.
Is it a coincidence that I not only wash pink-striped things, but I wear them too?
