I love when my home is freshly cleaned. When the kitchen sparkles and the floors are washed. It’s not just the cleanliness that makes me happy, I realized today that the actual cleaning process brings me joy. Cleaning off countertops, vacuuming, and yes, even scrubbing a toilet makes me happy. Crazy, right?
The thing is, I don’t get to do it as often as I’d like. When I’m home with the kids, on my own, there’s not a lot of free time to clean. At night, after they’re asleep, I’m usually too tired to even think about cleaning more than the dishes. Sometimes, as they’re napping, I can sneak in a quick wipe down of the bathroom, or the kitchen counters, but getting it all done in one fell-swoop is a rarity.
