I have started some "spring" cleaning. Why you ask? Well, my house is such a mess and has so much stuff in it. I am not a good housekeeper to start with but with me being gone so much for the last seven month, it has gotten to be too much. Cleaning for me is always an overwhelming task because I don't like doing it and I am not good at it. I really wish I did a better job of it because I would love to just have people over at a moments notice instead of having to plan weeks ahead of time just so I can get my house cleaned. One thing that doesn't help is that our house is over 75 years old and doesn't really have any storage. My closet is only about three feet deep so I have a hard time getting much stuff in there. I never iron anything before I put it up because that is a waste of time. Our house has three bedrooms but only two closets plus one in the bathroom and they are all small. We store our out of season clothing in plastic crates which isn't bad but we don't have any place to store those except in my office. Another problem is that we have a lot of furniture and I don't want to get rid of anything because eventually we will move somewhere else. To rent a storage place around here is pretty expensive so we are trying not to go that route. Oh my, I have gotten off subject haven't I. Anyway, I am trying to get my house semi cleaned so that I can then get my parents house back in order as we get their stuff moved back in. I am not looking forward to that job because I was going to help my Mom get everything taken care of. And since the weather is warming up, I really need to start getting yard work done at both houses. I really miss my Mom.
