Spring cleaning, ends justify the means?
Living in a home tends to build up. Crap gets deposited everywhere. Piles form, dust bunnies hide behind them... it's cumulative and it reaches a breaking point. We used to have regular events at the home. Cocktail or school parties where we invited a whole bunch of people over. That forced us to pick the stuff up regularly. Maybe we need to rekindle the event hosting habit so we keep on top of it... Or hire a maid.
We spent the WHOLE weekend cleaning, sorting, throwing away, scrubbing... oh let's not forget the bickering and arguing that goes along with the process. BUT, we came out the other end with a clean(er) home and no black eyes.
SO, while we had it all cleaned up, I took some pics. Fun to see how they compare to the pics taken in 2008, when the home was still fresh and new. 2008 CLEAN HOME PICS HERE
#2 son was SHOCKED to see the Magazine with pics of our home, "HOW CAN OUR HOME BE IN THIS MAGAZINE!!" He carefully studied each image with disbelief.
and the Apartment Therapy Tour
OK, it wasn't ALL bickering and cleaning, we celebrated our clean house by not dirtying the kitchen, and went to WINFLO for Sunday Night Two for One Pizza night.
Winflo qualified for the "no gaming at the table" rule; Reservations, Cloth Napkins, and Water Poured from a vessel not being a Plastic Pitcher. #2 son pouted briefly, but quickly improved his mood as soon as pizza was served. Let it be known that on that Sunday, he was a well behaved little man.
The Pizza was really good. It's Two for the price of One Sunday and Monday after 5 PM. They also have Happy Hour (reduced price drinks and apps) from 3-6:30. Monday just got a little Happier!
