Are you in the throes of spring cleaning at your house?
I wish I were, but all of the late-season snowfall we had this year made my motivation for cleaning wane. That being said, I have tackled a few extra little jobs that had been gnawing away at me: I did a nice, thorough purge of my girls’ bedroom and also the mudroom, taking time to box up things they had outgrown and stop in wonder at how much junk finds its way into our home. I still have lots left to do: window washing, deep-clean of the kitchen and pantry, closet reorganization, etc. I have a decent little jump on it but there’s an ace in my back pocket. For Christmas I received a gift from my mom in the form of a cheque addressed to my favourite house cleaner. I have been saving up all the filth and grime from the winter and will be making use of that gift in a couple weeks’ time. Until then, I will keep busy organizing and purging, knowing that once I get that done someone else will come in with her magic wand and make it all sparkle and shine.
Do you have a big spring cleaning schedule? Do you call a house cleaner to help you pull it off?
