Cinderelly, Cinderelly

Cinderelly, Cinderelly
Night and day it's Cinderelly
Make the fire, fix the breakfast
Wash the dishes, do the mopping

And the sweeping and the dusting
They always keep her hopping

She goes around in circles
Till she's very, very dizzy
Still they holler

Keep a-busy Cinderelly!

That, my friends, is what I feel like. I'm ready to collapse on my bed in exhaustion! This house has only once been cleaner than it is today, and that was on the day we moved in. I tidied and dusted my bedroom, the living room, and the kitchen. I did all the dishes, and put them all away. Then I sprayed down and scrubbed every appliance and fixture in the kitchen and the bathroom and literally got down onto my hands and knees to wash the floors. I vacuumed the living room carpet and couches, the stairs, and the upstairs hallway and my bedroom. I took out the trash and took the camping supplies back out to the storage room.

Everything sparkles.

Why am I cleaning like a madwoman, you ask? Because Caitlin's mom is coming to stay with us tonight. But Caitlin's in Virginia, you may say. To which you would be correct. Caitlin is in Virginia. When her plans changed, her mother's couldn't, and thus: Caitlin's mom is staying with us while Caitlin is not here. It also means I don't get any help cleaning, because I know Caitlin would have been right there with me, but, well, she's in Virginia. She'd need reeeeeeally long arms.

It's 5:30. I think I deserve some Cold Stone. Although, I'm not sure I can be bothered to leave the house. We shall see.
