Day 173: Man Works from Sun to Sun...
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
...women's work is never done. But then, we know they wouldn't be able to cope, don't we, lol...
I scrubbed the kitchen and laundry room floors today. Usually I do the 'quickie-mop' thing, with a lick and a promise. I guess the promise fell due - overdue, more like.
I can't find a mop here I like. I used to have an O-Cedar sponge mop that was great, simple but effective, easy to use, that worked well-enough in between the spring / fall deep-cleaning sessions. Here, I have a sort-of swiffer thing, spray 'n' wipe, whatever it's called. So it does the lick & promise, but it doesn't really clean.
I can't stand rag mops, string mops, whatever those things are. I always feel as tho they are pushing the dirt around. Might not be true, but personal preference y'know. It's what you grow up with, I suppose.
What I'm getting to is, today was an old-fashioned hands-and-knees session. Gah, I'm getting too old for this malarkey, lol. I'll hurt tomorrow, no doubt, but I'll sleep sound tonight.
That's my news for the day. Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!
