Today is February though and things already feel different! Well, mostly because we're finally healthy, but I was able to open my windows for about 10 minutes and that's a game changer. We had our little preschool in our house and Ellie and Fitz got some coveted cousin play time as well. Social engagements always perks our moods right up. It must be noted how good of a little cleaner Ellie is with the right motivation. Her cousins are exactly that and she swept through the house in about 15 minutes and had it looking spic and span. We'll be having them over everyday if this keeps up!
It'll be warming up a bit over the next week, and even though it's supposed to be a wet one, I'll take it! Once February hits I'm bitten by the spring cleaning bug. Today I cleaned our bathroom from top to bottoms, and I'm not kidding, it sparkles. Side note: One of my biggest fears is putting my hands in rubber gloves and finding that a spider in one of the fingers after I put the gloves on. No, it's never happened to me. This fear of ridiculous things is second only to movie theater bathrooms while all the movies are going, but that's a post for another time. Anyway, when I pulled out my gloves today I made sure to vigorously shake each glove and then turn it inside out and then right side in, because I can't even take that chance. No spiders! My favorite cleaner (sorry, not natural) has been the Lysol Power & Free Multi-Purpose Cleaner. It's good stuff! I also brightened up our front door with a new wreath. It's amazing what a little color can do.
