My Mom (who was a CDer too) always complained about the spring and fall cleaning. As a kid, I just didn't get it. I thought whats the big deal. Take one room a month, clean it top to bottom, no spring/fall cleaning needed. Seemed simple enough, until I got married and life hit. Theres just no time for that!
Lucky for me, I married a saint. We(and by we, I mean my husband) are doing a little minor kitchen rehab, so he'll take care of the spring cleaning in that room. Fresh paint and cleaning the cabinets, new floor too! Usually for mother's day he gives me a down on you hands and knees scrubbed kitchen floor. He strips it and cleans it and then rewaxes it. Like I said, he's a saint. It takes him most of the day. The rest of the house will get done when I'm having a "lots of energy" day.
I've said for years that a perfect gift for me would be a complete house cleaning a couple of times a year. Oh to have a service come in a clean top to bottom would be wonderful. But no one ever gets it for me. Maybe this year, I'll get it for myself!
