The Inevitable Spring Cleaning

33 Flares 33 Flares ×

For the first several years of married life I never had to do spring cleaning.  No, it was not because I was insanely blessed and had a maid.  It was because we lived in an apartment and every spring we had another baby and moved into a bigger apartment.  So once we settled in a house it never occurred to me to do spring cleaning.  Well, at least until I realized that the mini blinds were held together with dust and that the color of the rocks on the fireplace had changed (sporting the color of DUST).
