Danger – That’s What Spring Means to Me

Don’t get me wrong. I love spring. Living in Florida, we still have green most the year round, but I still love seeing the flowers blooming and going to Lowes to buy new flowers for planting. Science Guy will tell you I don’t have much of a green thumb, but I like to try.

But what about the danger?

My mom was/is Mrs. Clean incarnate. I could give you examples but that’s another post entirely. I’ll just leave it at the house was always spotless. Cleaning over clean was/is her motto.

Me, I love a clean house. I love things to be where they belong, I love…okay, who am I kidding? I really do love all of the above and try to keep it that way, until life decides I’m too busy.

So what about the danger? I’m almost there.

Things pile up, dusting needs to be done, and closets need to be straightened. I’m going crazy since I want it to be magazine perfect, but don’t have time or energy right now.

All of a sudden Spring hits the air and it’s like my mom takes over my body. I’m ready to clean everything, everywhere. And what is the easiest way to clean? Throw it out. Oh yeah, throw it away.

Many a time, there have been fingers looking through the jumbo black garbage bags carefully to not let catch them pulling out the things they know we need.

Then let us know what spring is like for you.

WW's and PD's,

Well you've seen my house - cleaning is not at the top of my list of things to do, but I'm forever getting rid of things I want later.

SOOOOO, that's where you've been! CLEANING!

}:-? I can think of a million things I'd rather be doing than cleaning. Nope, I only clean twice a week...the rest is spent writing.
Miss you.
