Demise of the Dust Bunnies

current mood: calm

My house is cleaner now than it's been in years. I spent the week madly de-cluttering in every room, especially my poor, overstuffed office. And those of you who've been here know we had a LOT of clutter everywhere. Today we actually hired a cleaning service come in to do the floors and dusting and such. All of this is in preparation for a party my husband is giving tomorrow for his work team.

This afternoon, I knew I'd succeeded when my six-year-old walked into my office after school. His mouth actually dropped open, and he asked, "What happened in here?"

Congratulations! I'm still fighting the good fight... having a toddler spend last weekend with us was an incentive for me to clear the first floor of small items and breakables...

Ha! Good try. But for someone as domestically challenged as I am, this is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime shot. Get Nobby to do it. He was quite helpful with household chores around here.

That Nobby sure is multi-talented.
