This past weekend, I got texts from two mommy buds. One said, "Husband took kids ALL day! ;) I went through five dressers and two closets. Score!". The other typed, "At the home office desk. In total OCD mode. Looks like a tornado hit it, but making big progress."
These texts? Totally made me jealous. With each bing from my phone and new little update on their Spring Cleaning progress, I became more and more jealous. Yes, my mommy BFFs are in Spring Cleaning mode and, due to wacky schedules of various commitments, I cannot, at this time, start in on my own Spring Cleaning. Which peeves me that I have not started yet. Right, even though it's a mere 30 degrees, and we have snow in the forecast, I am in that "Let's clear out the winter muck and throw open the windows and get to it!" mindset. Right, I'm a little insane.
I love Spring Cleaning. Just thinking about the transformation of the home, of clearing out and freshening up the abode gets me all sorts of giddy. I don't know what it is, but the idea of going through and reorganizing and purging old things, getting everything in order for a new bright season makes me smile. It's like my home is a little caterpillar that has been in a winter cocoon and now wants to emerge a butterfly (see what I did there, with the Spring analogy?).
Yes, for some, this is very weird. I realize this. But, this week, here at Mad Life, we're going to be chatting about Spring Cleaning -- the good, the bad and the ugly. I have to say, I like the closet organization part of Spring Cleaning much more than the wash-the-baseboards aspect of it.
How do you do your spring cleaning? Have you started yet?
