This moment won't last, but I will enjoy it for now. My house is clean.
With two children and a dog, this clean moment is fleeting.
The housework cycle will continue.
I could get discouraged. I usually do. But not at this moment.
I googled housekeeping quotes and most of them are what I expected; sarcastic humor masking complaint. But I found a few that made me smile.
I am thankful for a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.... I am thankful for the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby. ~Nancie J. Carmody
I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left off and made some marmalade. It's amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges and scrub the floor. ~D.H. Lawrence
I'm going to try to remember D.H. the next time I am scrubbing something.
