More Spring Cleaning

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

More spring cleaning-I just finished cleaning out my bathroom drawers. I know I should clean them out more often, but once a year is about as often as I get around to it. It’s amazing the things that accumulate in one short year, most of which don’t belong in the bathroom.

I found an entire toolbox full of hammers (more than one,) screwdrivers, wire cutters and nails. In the same category (things that belong in the garage) I found paint stirring sticks, electrical outlet boxes, and a light fixture.

There were seven empty boxes. Largish ones, from contact solution, toothpaste, cleaning supplies, etc. Why not just throw the box away when you take out the contents? Seems like an easy solution. But maybe we’re keeping them in case there’s a cardboard shortage.

I found five earrings, none of them matching. There were Mardi Gras beads, plastic cause bracelets (LIVE STRONG!) and an Easter hair bow from my older daughter’s third Easter. Maybe it’ll match what she’s wearing this year?

Three bottles of aspirin, all half empty. A shishkabab skewer? Birthday cards. A CD case with no CD. Where does this stuff come from? Why do people bring odd things into the bathroom and stash them in the drawers? Everyone in the house denies doing this. Is it Aliens? Maybe the cat has learned to open the drawers? Why is there a ball from the pool table in there?

If I knew how this happened, I could make it stop and my house would always be clean. But cleaning wouldn’t be nearly as much fun.
