Have you ever done this? Decided to straighten up a little because you have been so busy these past few weeks that your chores have gotten a little neglected?
So you clean off your bathroom vanity and scrub your shower and tub and toilet. Then you think, oh since I am cleaning this bathroom I might as well clean the other downstairs bathroom. The "powder" room. Where nothing ever gets powdered. But whatever.
So you squirt the toilet cleaner around the toilet bowl and as you're letting it kind of marinate for a minute you clean the sink. And while you are cleaning the sink you notice the decorative towels are all kittywampis so you straighten them. And while you are straightening the towels you see the dust on the top of the towel bar so you take your wet cleaning towel to it. And while you are wiping the towel bar you notice that wrought iron decorative candle holder thingy hanging above the towels is covered in dust as well. And as you are dusting the candles and candle holder thingy you start wondering when was the last time a non-family member used this bathroom and ohmygod did they notice how dusty this thing was/is?
And while you are thinking about this you drop the toilet cleaner you are holding under your arm so you bend down to pick it up and notice the tops of your baseboards are grey instead of white because they too are so covered in dust. So you gasp and get down on your hands and knees and start scrubbing the baseboards and suddenly you are coughing and sneezing and have to get up to escape the cloud of dust and dust bunnies you are kicking up into your face from the tile floor.
And then you think holy crap when was the last time I mopped this floor?? And then you are horrified because not only can you not remember when was the last time you mopped that floor, you can't pinpoint the date of the last time you mopped any floor. And as a matter of fact, you can't even think of where your mop might be??
And then you start thinking, April . . . . or whatever your name is . . . . maybe you should stop worrying about your microwave and start paying more attention to your floors???
Has this ever happened to you?? No?? Yeah, me neither. I mean gross. Who would allow their home to get so disgusting? Certainly not I. Or you either. Right? I mean I think I may have heard about something like this on Oprah or some place but I have never experienced this for myself. Nope. No siree....
