So I think I might be starting the whole pregnancy nesting thing...either that or I have a serious case of spring cleaning fever. I have never been a person who is overly clean. I am not dirty, but I am sorta cluttery (thank GOD Nick isn't, so he keeps my pack-rat nature under control). I just don't let little things at the house get to me. I will run the vacuum, but when I hear people say things like, "I have pets, so I HAVE to vacuum every day!"....Ahhhhhh hahahahahaha! That is REALLY not me. I take on more of the attitude, "I will get to cleaning when I get to it...no need to stress". So yesterday sorta took me by surprise. I was off work, so I was going to go to the grocery. I was cleaning the kitchen, just so it would be easier to get the groceries in and put away, which is totally normal. Then...something changed. I went to put something in the fridge and it hit me. I needed to clean out the fridge. I was running late and had much more important things on my to do list, but I just NEEDED to quickly clean it out. Like NOW. It could not possibly continue to look this way for one second longer.
So I cleaned the fridge. But I just didn't toss things that were sorta old and make room for the groceries (my normal "fridge cleaning") Oh no. I CLEANED the fridge. Like take everything out and start to SCRUB. Like learning that every little piece of your fridge actually comes apart and you can wash it all in the sink by hand! And finding out that if you do that, your fridge will look BRAND NEW! Now every time I open the fridge I scan it to make sure nothing is making a mess in my beautifully clean fridge. I want everything to stay in it's place...because that is WHERE IT GOES. This is really not me.
I now have my eye on the base boards...and the cabinets...and the walls. Are you suppose to clean walls?? If this keeps up this is going to be a very productive eight weeks!
