And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Guess What?

Cleaning house qualifies as a full physical, mental, and emotional workout.


Physical: Reaching, stretching, lifting, walking back and forth, climbing up on the footstool and then back down, wiping, squatting, pushing, pulling....

Mental: Problem solving (how am I gonna fit all this STUFF in my little apartment!), memory skills (where the heck did THAT come from???)

Emotional: staying focused while Little Sprout is squawking, maintaining your cool as you get more and more angry and hurt that people would make such a mess, dealing with self anger because you are a natural born slob and can't seem to pick up after yourself, etc.

See? So when I am done I get a vacation.

Absa- funckin-lutely! Preferably alone some where warm and tropical where other people gladly tidy up after you and attend to your every need!

Where can I get one of those??

I'm not sure, but let's pinky-swear that whichever one of us finds out first HAS to tell the other before taking off. K?
