This is my family…at the zoo….without me.
I asked for it. I just wanted a day with the house. I needed to do some cleaning, and I wanted it to stay that way – at least for a few hours. I scrubbed down the bathrooms, vacuumed under couch cushions, dusted cobwebs out of corners, and washed 8 loads of laundry.
My goal was to lay on the couch and read and getting up every once in awhile to enjoying my clean house. I planned to walk into the kitchen and see no new dirty dishes or crumbs on the island, I wanted to stroll into the bedrooms and see empty laundry baskets and made beds, I wanted a chance to use both toilets before anyone else!
Of course I forgot about another commitment I had that evening and my hour of luxuriously lounging was never had. I feel a little cheated.
