It’s springtime! You know what that means? Spring Cleaning! You have no idea how much stuff migrates from the kid belts office to my house. It’s amazing, really. Bits of elastic here, snaps there, thread over there on that table, snap-cessory protoypes (oh wait, you don’t know about those…) on the desk and so on and so on.
I have decided that some cleaning and rearranging is in order. Not so much decided as have this nagging “need” to clean and organize. I seriously feel like I’m 8 months pregnant and nesting. Ok, I don’t really “feel” pregnant, but I was equating the “nesting” feeling that comes with pregnancy. Anyway, the bottom line is I am TIRED of the clutter. I have to do something about.
It’s not just kids belts stuff either. It’s a garage full of toys and clothes that the kids have out grown, it’s my overflowing craft table, it’s my graveyard of malnourished potted plants on my patio and so much more. We just moved less than two years ago, I don’t remember packing this stuff up and bringing it here, but is it possible to accumulate so much stuff in less than two years? How do people do it living in a house for 5 years or 10? I’m afraid we may look like an episode of Hoarders by that point! I joke, of course, but I am ready to clear out closets, clean off desks, purge the cabinets, and deep clean the rest. I think it’s something in the air… It has to be, I’m not usually cleaner or an organizer, I’m more of a free spirit. Like a feather in the wind floating from one point to the next. (See, I can be profound, too!)
On a side note, every time I hear the word springtime, I think of the song from the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (a movie which disturbs me greatly):
the only pretty ring time
a ding a ding-a ding
What are you planning to clean this spring?
