After avoiding it for months, it's time to get in a good house cleaning. That includes washing all of the couch cushions, washing the couch itself, cleaning any stains on the carpet, moping every hard surfaced floor, vacuuming, bathroom, kitchen, dusting, cleaning out of any old bedrooms, and a whole hell of a lot more. To top it all off, it's exactly 100 degrees outside and muggy. So the swamp cooler, is really just bringing it into the house, so I feel sticky and gross. BUT wait, there's more, I have a couple of badly behaved nieces and nephews running around screaming their heads off. And last but not least the television, which is the only thing I have to keep the kids occupied, keeps getting disrupted by flash flood warning signals for an area no where near mine. It's a not so great day.
