Katie over at Hyper Homemaker did a whole week of house cleaning before Thanksgiving. I, however, did about 0% of her dirt smackdown challenge. Somehow, there are always too many projects or goals or loads of laundry that make cleaning – well, unimportant. And because I don’t want the boyfriend to leave me for some dust-inhalation-free home complete with a rubber-glove-wearing, floor-grout-scrubbin, toilet-bowl-wand-brandishing vacuumaholic – I decided it was time to do a little housework. More specifically, I would clean the fridge.
The fridge is important to Jeremy for two reasons –
- It holds the food.
- It cools the sweet tea.
Being the wife of a good ole southern boy makes both food & sweet tea very important to me as well. Here is my after shot of my fridgie:
Two finger wounds, twenty five Clorox wipes, five paper towels, two full trash bags, and one dishwasher load later – we have one very squeeky clean refrigerator. And it appears that we have more condiments than food. And that is pretty funny because I threw out about 17 bottles of salad dressing. Also, funny is the fact that we have four jars of mayonnaise. And I don’t use mayo for anything except deviled eggs.
Maybe it is time to get to the supermarket. Or maybe I can wait till after Christmas is over. I think Jeremy will be fine as long as the tea is cold…
