My Sunday

Sunday is our cleaning day.

Wildebeest and Zebu cleaned their rooms, vacuumed, and "scoured" the downstairs bathroom. 

Zippy Ramone vacuumed and cleaned the two upstairs bathrooms.

Guess what I did?

Here's a close-up in case you need another hint:

I'd forgotten you're supposed to be able to see the contents of the fruit and veggie bins. 
(Visibility!   What a concept!)

So long, expired vitamin powder.  Farewell, fossilized chile relish.  Ta-ta, coagulated strawberry syrup.

Oh my .  Get outta here, half-cup of sauerkraut.  And take that furry whatever it is with you.

(Confession:  I keep opening the fridge to admire my handiwork.  That tells you a little something about my worth as a domestic goddess).

Wow, looks great! Want to come and do mine now? (Please, pretty please, he-he);)

Sorry, Robin, but I have to conserve my fridge-cleaning strength for when I next tackle it in 2010 or so.

Thank you! It's all so shiny and clean!

Thanks for the laugh.
It looks awesome, btw!

Thank you. It does, doesn't it?

(Scurries off to get another glimpse....)

I didn't mean to make you jealous, Melodye. :(

I wanted to document this so I'd remember that once in a while, our household is not total and complete chaos. Sticky, gooey, icky, scary chaos.

Soon always comes when it comes, right?

That is a thing of beauty. If I were you, I'd just eat out from now on so you don't dirty it up again or anything.

I can't bear the thought of looking in my grungy fridge now. Maybe the dripping chocolate syrup will have sealed the doors shut for good.

Eating out for all eternity - what a fine idea!!!

As for your dripping chocolate syrup, there's no way your fridge is as bad as mine. I had goopy, sticky gunk on one shelf that I scraped (unsuccessfully) with a knife to remove. It took soaking and lots of elbow grease to get that off.

We are such untidy people.

Wow! That is a work of art. :)

Do I spy some sort of Thai peanut sauce on the door? Yum.

Isn't it, though?

It's so funny you noticed the Thai peanut sauce. When I came across that yesterday, I took it outside and tried handing it back over the fence to my neighbor who'd given that to me plus a bag of cole slaw when she went out of town for a week. I confessed to her that the cole slaw had gotten pushed to the back of my incredibly messy, unorganized, and downright scary refrigerator and that by the time I remembered and excavated the cole slaw, it was RIPE. Well, at least it didn't go bad in her fridge.

She told me to keep the sauce and try again with another bag. :)

She swears by it. Do you love it, too?

You do, indeed. That champagne's probably six years old. The beer in our fridge has a much shorter life expectancy.

Oh, I love the feeling of a clean fridge! Mine is sorely in need of some scrubbing. Whenever I clean like you did, I just like to open the frige and admire the order and life feels in balance. ;)

It is a good feeling. The shiny shelves made me smile today. :)

What?! How could I have missed this? Tracy. I'm sorry, but you may NEVER set foot in my kitchen. Ever. Oh my gosh. I am a PIG. Hangs head in shame.

You have got to be kidding! We are slobs in this household. Not a pretty truth but the truth nonetheless. If I'd thought of it, I would've taken a Before photo of the refrigerator. (On second thought, I'm not that brave). Believe me, it was UGLY.

Only a person with a truly disgusting refrigerator would get excited enough to photograph (document?) it when it's finally clean. I wanted proof that clean can happen in our household.

And I'm still thrilled when I open it and can still see through the glass over the bins. HA!
