Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Ready

Yesterday I decided to get really serious about cleaning my kitchen floor. I got out some bleach and a heavy duty sponge, filled up a bucket with some hot water & bleach, and then I got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed.

 I had never scrubbed a floor by hand before. Wow, I thought as the dirt came up, this is really working! This is great!  Of course there were a couple stubborn spots, but once I went and found an old toothbrush, they cleaned up nicely too.

I finished, stood up, and smiled at my floor. My floor gleamed back at me.   

And then I realized that I had just spent 40 minutes scrubbing my kitchen floor with a toothbrush, and that those 40 minutes were the most satisfying 40 minutes of my day.

All of which is a roundabout way of saying, I think I’m ready to turn 29. I should probably be turning 80 based on that story, but either way, the twenties are clearly on the wane.

  1. Recently, my landlord informed me that she’d be showing my apartment to a prospective tenant. So I cleaned like there was no tomorrow. When I was done and the prospective tenant walked in with a “wow! This is so cute!” I was immediately stricken with remorse over my decision to leave. Turns out, my apartment *is* really cute when I clean it! DAMN!

    Oh, and happy early birthday, Danar!
