Lie flat on your back in your kitchen sometime after cleaning it and look up. You will see that:
- the underside edge of the counter is filthy
- the muck inside of your range hood defies description
- a child has stuck macaroni to the underside of your kitchen table
- there are four spiders in various corners of the room
- the light fixture has dead bugs in it
- turning your head sideways lets you see what has accumulated under the stove, dishwasher and fridge
The moral of this story, friends, is that in some cases, it’s really best not to look at the world from a variety of angles and perspectives. Also, lying flat on your back in the kitchen is a sure way to attract all the dogs in the house simultaneously. Blech.

Not so depressing…it confirms what I have aways felt…I only clean what I can reach and these days anything near the floor is off the radar!! There are some great things about aging! What else is great? Well the older to get the less you care about cleaning….this too is liberating.
The question is – why, in the first place? Surely you suspected that nothing good could come of it.
Having a housework day?
It was inadvertant. I reached the point of being so gosh-darned tired (three nights running with four hours sleep each night) and weary that I simply had to lie down. The cushion flooring in the kitchen is softer than the hardwood elsewhere. We don’t have a couch in the living room and the bed is downstairs. So I lay down and rejoiced in horizontality for thirty seconds.
The up side was that the depressing nature of the scenery and attendant canines made finding the impetus to get up again easier…
