We got back from church, ate a bite to eat and started cleaning. The whole time Buie is cracking jokes, singing and dancing. Yes, he was dancing. I know it's hard to imagine. His mindset was to have fun with this so called "cleaning day." My mindset on the other hand was ... don't mess around. We only have so much time to get this all done.
You see with our different schedules it is very rare that Buie and I have an afternoon or evening off together. And if we do it's NEVER on the weekend together. He is always working on the weekend. So I wanted to seize this opportunity of togetherness and get it all done together. Needless to say, I was NOT singing and dancing. ha!
I think the moment it hit me that I was, in fact, Monica, was when I started to vacuum my vacuum cleaner. If you are a FRIENDS fan you know exactly what episode I am talking about. Monica finishes vacuuming, takes out a smaller hand held vacuum and vacuums her big vacuum with her smaller one.
In my case though I actually used the hose attachment. (much more efficient, I think.)
We laughed about it, and when we were finished cleaning we sat down and watched a few episodes of FRIENDS. When it's all said and done, next time I think I'll be a little more like Chandler and a little less like Monica on cleaning day.
If you'll recall what our place used to look like...
Here's what it looks like after many many hours of cleaning yesterday.
