Another house moment?
I was talking to a friend recently about house cleaning chores and varying definitions of a clean home. I told her about when I was a kid some woman told my mom that her house was "so dirty because she hasn't cleaned her baseboards in a month" or something like that. my mom, realizing that she had never cleaned her baseboards, gave us kids the chore the following saturday. I remember thinking it was silly. So after telling that story, I started noticing my baseboards. They really are dusty. So for the past couple of days, when I see them, and I'm close, and not doing anything else, I wipe them off with my hands--which means basically they're clean around the toilet, walking up the stairs, and next to "sam spots" where he sits down to play. Which also means the floor is now dusty there. Ah, the joys of cleaning house.
