Forget Spring, It's Fall Cleaning
Why does everyone talk about spring cleaning? Shouldn't it be fall cleaning? After all, it's the beginning of early darkness, movies on the couch, and snow. Isn't THIS the time we're supposed to clean our houses? When we're going to be stuck in them for months on end? It makes sense to me.
We're enacting some fall cleaning around here. Mostly because in less than a week it will be Thanksgiving and the house will be full of family members who might yell, "Gross Liz... there's a dust bunny in the corner with Cheetos wrapped in the center." To which I would reply, "Not so fast... that's dessert."
Anyway, we're cleaning. And clearing out closets full of things we'll never use, like old letter jackets. There are some people that cling to high school. Apparently, judging by the look of disdain written on Matt's face, he isn't one of them. Wish us luck.
