Crazy Cleanin' Lady

That's me!!!

Every year, about this time, I do a MAJOR cleaning of the house and  get rid of old stuff.  (At Christmas, we try to take a big load to The Salvation Army or Goodwill.) Plus,  I am hosting two Christmas parties and that is another motivation to get my house spotless!! So, for the past two days, I have been cleaning like crazy--dusting (fans, baseboards, furniture), scrubbing (any and everything), vacuuming, mopping, polishing furniture, fixing stuff, spray painting stuff, washing linens, etc.

On the topic of washing linens, I decided to wash the sheets on the top bunk of AG's bed.  No one has ever slept up there, but I thought those sheets might be a little dusty.

Oh. my. goodness.  Changing a top bunk bed should be used to torture people.  It is insane.  I don't think I have every tucked, folded, or maneuvered like I did to fix that bed.  It was a work out!  I took a picture to brag show the fruits of my labor.

Speaking of torture...I LOATHE cleaning the shower--always have. You with me?  More than anything, I hate cleaning a shower with a shower door (the old kind).  Those things are cesspools for mold and mildew.  I just want to take that blasted thing off and put up a curtain.  And yes, I use that spray that your supposed to use after each shower--the mold still has a way of creeping in the picture.  I clean that shower weekly and hate it every. single. time.

So what were my kids doing while I was cleaning?....running around with nothing but panties/diaper on, sporting ratty hair, unbrushed teeth,  and dirty faces!  Judge me all you want! :) 

Tomorrow, I will put the finishing touches on the house.  That's always fun!  Gotta go on a nature hunt to get some pine limbs to place around.

I'll post pics of the party sometime this weekend.  In the meantime, my family is glad that the "crazy cleaning lady" has left the building!


  1. Hi Leslie! Thank you so much for visiting me! Good for you for getting your house all clean for Christmas! I admire your energy! My son has been wanting bunkbeds forever and I have told him 'no' for the very reason you describe...I can't imagine changing the sheets! LOL! I hope you have a wonderful Chrismtas with your little sweethearts! Angie xo

  2. Oh, I love you even more after this post. I HATE LOATHE DESPISE & ABOMINATE (name that Judy Garland musical) cleaning my shower. Especially the door. We're buying a new door for ours, but haven't done that...yet. ;)


I'd love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment.

For our joy and His glory,
