~Happy Spring Cleaning~
By Stephanie Pletka
Spring is in the air. It’s time to rid ourselves of unwanted clutter, and simplify.
After reading inspiring tips from TheLaundryMoms.com, I decided to take their lead and “Sort Out My Life…One Load at a Time.”
I put on my headphones and began scrubbing every nook and cranny of the house. I was tossing this, throwing that, without a care in the world. I had my favorite music blasting, as I cleaned the house from top to bottom. What I didn’t realize is, while I broke out the cleaning supplies and organized closets, my husband ran to the basement for an early morning conference call in his boxers. I had this bad habit…
when I closed doors, I also locked them.
A couple of hours flew by, and I headed to the bathroom to shave my legs. I was on a mission to “Find the New Me.” I had neglected my legs for so long, I contemplated using scissors for phase one. I pulled out the Dollar Shave Club Razors and thought I heard angels in the back ground. As I enjoyed the most incredibly smooth shave, my husband walked in, wearing only his boxers, holding a door knob and a screw driver. With an angry, yet curious demeanor, he was trying to figure out what scenario would have him banging on the basement door for 20 minutes, while he could hear me singing at the top of my lungs, but not opening the door. He found his tool box and had to break his way out. Apparently, headphones, Dollar Shave Club Razors and a locked door, make for a perfect storm.
So when you’re cleaning out those closets, tossing junk from the fridge, you don’t remember buying, and shaving your legs with the best razors in town, remember to ask yourself, did you lock your husband in the basement today?
Happy Spring Cleaning!
Here’s to sorting out your life, one load at a time!
About Stephanie: Living in Atlanta, GA with my husband and 4 kids, I know what it’s like to climb the “corporate ladder,” own my own business and work from home, all the while, raising kids. It’s not easy cooking dinner every night, juggling hectic schedules, helping kid’s with homework, soccer practice and ballet, all the while, developing happy, healthy children. Moms are often pressured to be perfect, to do it ALL and do it well, to choose sides “working mom vs. stay at home moms.” We’re not here to compete, we’re here to raise healthy, well adjusted children that will go into the world with confidence, knowledge, Godly character, a sense of sportsmanship and community, all the while, keeping our sanity and having fun along the way.
