Spring Cleaning

One of the things I’ve struggled with since I was little is cleaning.  I admit it: at home I’m a natural slob.  So yesterday and today when I sensed a cleaning urge coming on I dropped everything and started my spring cleaning.  It’s not often that I feel like cleaning so I figured I better do it before my place starts to look like a hoarder moved in.  So I haven’t exactly had much time to read, therefore there was no review on Monday.  However, I’m hoping to finish things up later today and get back on my usual posting schedule.

At work we’ve been doing spring cleaning of a sort as well, mainly re-doing all of the tags in the store to reflect new prices and manufacturers.  It’s a pain in the butt yet it definitely needs to be done before the tourist inundation starts around the end of May.

So I’ve been cleaning both at work and at home.  Do you guys do spring cleaning of a sort?  Are you naturally a slob like me?  How has your day been going?

    I’m a terrible housekeeper! But I work full time and write/read at night, so I blame my schedule, not me. I “Spring Clean” every time someone visits which isn’t often since we live by NYC in an apartment, and our families are in the Midwest and Long Island. Guess people could call me a slob, but I chose to do other things than clean. Lots of love, Emily

    I’m a complete slob. I typically take one day a week to clean my house, but there are some weeks where I feel so completely lazy I just turn a blind eye and pretend my house is spotless. But then I end up needing a spoon and I realize… okay, nope, the dishes are not going to clean themselves, and I get my butt moving. xD

      That’s so me! I try to clean somewhat regularly but then I get lazy and it just builds up until I really can’t stand it any longer. Then I have to be a grown up and do things like dishes, vacuuming and mopping.

    The one family party we host each year is Mother’s Day. Our town does curbside bulk-item pick-up once every April so, yes, once a year, around now, we do a big clean up. Funny how I typed “we” there–no one helps. 😉 One thing it does is relieve me of being concerned about the mess the rest of the year.

      Yeah, I do about one huge clean up every year in which I just pass my junk around in the family. (Can’t really have a curbside sale when there are a) no curbs and b) my closest neighbour is several hundred yards away.) That’s what I’m doing today and then I know I won’t be doing any too-thorough cleaning until at least August when I have to move out.
