Spring Cleaning

It's 2 a.m., and I'm too tired to sleep. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. Sometimes when I take on a big project or go on a trip, I get caught up in the momentum and then I lay in bed, completely pooped but awake. It's like, HELLO! The SOLUTION to the tiredness is RIGHT HERE. I'm LAYING right on top of the solution to the exhaustion.

I spent my entire day off today cleaning my apartment. Joel's allergies have been pretty bad lately, and the pets are in the middle of their pledge campaign for their spring fundraiser. Oh, wait. That's NPR. Seriously, the pets are shedding like crazy. I could outfit many a hairless dog and cat, should I choose to do so, with the furballs roaming the apartment.

Every surface in this apartment has been dusted, scrubbed, vacuumed. Every piece of furniture was moved so I could vacuum underneath it. The curtains are all washed. The throw rugs beaten. The Big Closet has been returned to state of semi-organization. My winter clothes are put away, my summer clothes and shorts are neatly organized. Every comforter is washed, dried. Every room de-cluttered.

Sleep... sleep now..zzzz

I so miss having an apartment that I could clean in a day. Spring cleaning for our house would require at least a week, and possibly a rental truck.

Hope you got some rest.

It's a great feeling to have it all clean and organized, isn't it? Sleep well, my daughter! Love, Mom

Want to come do my house next? Because we're seriously suffering from the allergies, and I just don't have the energy to clean. (the dust has officially taken over under my bed)
Hope you got some sleep!
(also? I sent your stuff yesterday, finally.)
