I meant to post by 9 am this morning. Obviously, as it's 11:32 am, it didn't happen.
The problem is that today is Thursday. And Thursday is garbage pick up day.
So I logged onto Chloe (My laptop. Yes, I named her. Yes, I will explain why later), and my internet was taking longer than usual to sign in (shocker).
So I decided that I would clean out the fridge real quick (Because today is garbage pick up day)
Once I did that I realized the bag wasn't full enough to take out. So I decided to clean my 3 lower kitchen cabinets (They haven't been cleaned since we moved in 2 years ago and became the 'hiding' place. Been meaning to do it for like 8 months).
So, I sorted all the Tupperware, threw out all mismatches, threw away a bazillion pounds of old candy (seriously all the way back from Easter '05!),threw out other random junk and also found that Mice at some point attempted to create their own utopia amongst my cabinet clutter (I am pretty sure they did not succeed due to the volumes of candy they had eaten. Dental insurance is hard to come by in the rodent business and the sugar high alone must have caused some dissent).
So, then I had to Vacuum the emptied cabinets out. And seeing I had the vacuum out I might as well vacuum the whole kitchen floor. And seeing that is next to the living room I might as well vacuum the whole living room, then toy room.
Then I had to wash all the dishes because my long lost Tupperware had been living amongst the mice. Because I was doing the dishes I had to wipe off my counters. And I was cleaning so I might as well take everything off the counter and wipe under it, not just around it.
Then I had to put everything back into the cabinets in an organized fashion and move things from the upper cabinets down (now that there was finally room). Here's the final result:
Once that was all done I had to take the original trash back and the other junk that had accumulated in the cabinet out to the end of the drive. As I was walking back I realized there were two more garbage cans by the garage that hadn't been brought up in at least 3 months (they were to heavy for Alex and I kept forgetting). So I brought those to the end of the drive.
So I came back in and now my kitchen is all clean.
Except then I went to make lunch and realized I hadn't wiped off the shelves in a few weeks and they were kinda icky. So I wiped 'em all down.
and NOW my kitchen really is all clean.
and I've finally had a chance to post!
