On why it's time for spring

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Spring! Any time now! Really!
I know I'm not alone when I say I wish spring would hurry up and get here. Technically, spring starts tomorrow. But when the high temperature for March 20 is a blustery 25 degrees (with lake effect snow, mind you), I call foul. While I hate to complain, I really do think it's time for winter to end. 

I would certainly love to have some warmer weather, but really, I'm ready for spring because I'd like to throw open the windows, let the air move around, and clean the crud out of this house. 

I like to have an organized home. When my house is in chaos, I feel like I'm in chaos. But while my home is certainly organized, I'm not always the most thorough cleaner. I intend to be... but then I think, "I'll wash all the blinds next month," or, "If I can't see the top of the ceiling fan, it's probably pretty clean!"

I've been intending to do a top to bottom cleaning for a long time, but for whatever reason, it's been nagging at me lately. I found a fabulous cleaning checklist here that I intend to use for this purpose. I'm oddly excited about cleaning the house... like, sincerely waiting and hoping it gets warm soon just for this purpose (and, you know, the added bonus of warmer weather). 

I think at least part of me, consciously or not, is preparing for the inevitable moving in of my partner in crime, Dan. Whether it happens now or later, I want to make sure there is space for his things so that this becomes our home, not my home that he moved in to. Having the house clean and organized is going to make the transition so much easier, so, whenever it happens, I'll be ready. :)
