mr. and mrs. clean


It's Easter Monday, and a little rainy, so we're doing more cleaning today. You might have noticed a ladder in the top right hand corner - Bill's been up there, cleaning the ceiling fan, the cross, the window sill and the top of our entranceway closet.

Just before Bill moved in, when Jamie was seventeen, she had a house party here one weekend while I in Calgary visiting him. She called us in the morning to break the news, which involved RCMP, some damamge to my bedroom door and bedroom window. When we got back, we found empties on top of the closet, and a joint!

Thankfully, it was minor, and Jamie no longer pushes her boundaries. At least, that I can tell - she's pretty good about asking for anything she needs from us, rather than taking it behind our backs. It's so nice that we can trust both kids.

Do you all have the day off today, or did you have to work?

  1. I just love open tall ceilings like that, when the sunlight pours in... and just after a fresh cleaning, it feels that much better!
    I'm working; nobody gets today off automatically where I work, and noone in our area took it as a vacation day.

  6. i am still stuck at work. I will be going home and then going to the gym after eating dinner with Mabel's folks. Last minute invite for free food is always a winner.

  7. It is all cleaning where I am right now with the move; cleaning and cleaning out and sorting. And recycling or throwing what we can and should. Out with the oldl, determine what we really need and really should - and sort, file, organise and store the rest. Maggs.

  8. Rainy days are good cleaning days! I have to get into spring cleaning mode soon. I'm home with the kids as usual. My husband had to go into work. He didn't feel like it. Not that he ever does :)

  10. I finished my spring cleaning just before easter, still getting used to things not falling out of cupboards when I open them. LOL.

  11. At least the party left nobody in jail, noone died (as a high school girl here did from chugging alcohol at a party). At least your house was not burned down -- obviously your daughter worked very hard to keep things under wraps . . . and how do you do that when you're surrounded by teenagers drinking alcohol?

    Note: one of my dearest friends came home once and learned her boys had been entertaining girls in her absence -- the girls had been modeling her lingerie (got into her closet). Is THAT not disturbing??? LOL.

    (You got off easily).

  14. I have to work all week, including my normal day off. Good Friday really messes things up for us. I'll have to console myself with the extra pay, I guess...

  15. I don't have to work on Mondays but would have if I didn't have this four day work week. I did a little cleaning myself but this place could stand to be cleaned a lot more. Nice to know that your kids are so good. I hope for that when our son gets older.
