29 Days of Gratitude - Part XXII
CLEANING AND LAUNDRY. I think I mentioned cleaning in an earlier post, but I am especially grateful for it, again, today. I just finished my weekly deep clean of the apartment. I used to do my deep clean on Saturdays (just like when I was growing up), but I moved it to Friday's a few months ago when I realized that I was spending too much time on the one free day Matt and I both have- cleaning. To me, there is nothing that feels so complete as vacuum lines and the sight of freshly folded laundry. I love the way my apartment smells the entire day like I just cleaned. It is so relaxing to sit down and play with Leah and not have anything in the back of my head saying, "There are dishes in the sink. The floor needs to be swept. The laundry isn't put away." This is the ultimate in relaxation to me.
