This was me over the weekend, except that I was cleaning out the pantry. I found some things that expired back in 2008!
I usually get stuck in stage 2 for a while, wondering if there’s any way out of what I started…
Is this how spring cleaning goes for you?
(Cartoon for Babble.)
This. Is. Me.
Oh my gosh.
There are two more subsequent stages:
(5) maniacal dedication to keeping area perfect
(6) beginning to slip: “I’ll just put this here for a moment. Or until this afternoon. Next week…”
Oh my gosh, YES. That is 100% true for me too!
Stage 5: Your kids cannot find ANYTHING, so you have to undo all your cleaning.
Stage 6: You redo your cleaning.
Stage 7: You forget to clean the oven and nearly burn off your hand.
Stage 8: Celebrate.
Stage 9: Your kids start making an even bigger mess than before your cleaning.
Stage 10: You yell at your kids for undoing your hard work.
Stage 11: You redo your cleaning.
Stage 12: You burn down the house.
Stage 13: You and your whole family cry.
Stage 14: You blame your kids for it.
Stage 15: You realise that it wasn’t your kids’ fault.
Stage 16:You have to stay at Grandma’s for the next month.
Stage 12! Lol!
So funny, but so true!
Step 5: kids go and immediately mess it up.
should end-your kids make everything messy, and everything starts again. it’s a cycle 🙁
