Gimme a Break!

I spent today on my hands and knees, scrubbing the wood floors.  I finished at around 4:30 so I had half an hour before it was time to start supper.  I decided to read on the deck.  As I was turning to leave the kitchen, I looked at the refrigerator and thought, "If I just clean out the fridge, the entire first floor will be sparkling clean."

Don't do it, Chris!  Don't do it!  Can't you just hear the ominous background music?  Wish I had....because when I opened the door, a jug of cranberry juice fell out and as it was falling, the top flew off.  Not only was I drenched in cranberry, so were my shoes, the kitchen floor and the interior of the fridge, even underneath the drawers. 

So much for "virtue is its own reward."  I am grateful though that it was the juice that fell because right next to it was a quart of milk with an expiration date of July 30th.

I know how you get the cleaning bug...there were times when we wanted to say to you "what have you done with our friend Chris and why have you cleaned her house?" Oh, if we'd only take pictures when we are done (before we spill cranberry juice) we could just post the pic on the fridge and shine on the cleaning ride for a few months.
