This is actually a post I wrote back in November, but today while I’m cleaning, I thought of this post and wanted to share it again….
If you ask a mom to clean a room….
By Kelly Runde
She will open up the drawer in the bed-side table and empty out it’s contents.
She will discover a memory card and want to know what’s on it.
After discovering she can’t see what is on it, she will message her friend on skype and ask for ideas on how to open it.
While talking to her friend, she figures she better keep working, so she cleans out a box of medicine.
After realizing about half the box is expired, she does a google search to see how to dispose of it properly.
While looking through sites on google, she finds a giveaway she must enter.
After typing in her name and address, she realizes that she still hasn’t found her driver’s license, so off she goes to find it.
While looking through a box in the closet, after using a key to open it, and looking through all the envelops she finds her license (who would have thought it would be there).
Excited about her find, she texts her husband to tell him the news.
He has some trouble with texting back, his fingers hit more than one letter at a time, so after finally getting through the texts, it’s time for a snack.
While looking through the fridge to find something to eat, mom sees some things that need to be thrown away.
Once the trash can is full of leftovers, mom takes the can outside to the bigger trash can.
Upon returning to the kitchen, mom puts a new bag in the can and starts to wash the dishes from the leftovers from the fridge.
Once she is done, she realizes that the counters need a good scrubbing, so scrubbing she starts to do.
When she is finished a young child asks her for help and help she does.
After a while, she returns to her room to continue to clean.
She finds enough coins to make a vending machine jealous and decides to find a container for them.
She opens the cabinet with empty containers and several things fall out.
Not what she planned to do today, she sits on the floor and cleans out the cabinet.
Now back on her feet, mom looks at the clock and realizes it is almost time for her hubby to come home, so dinner must be made.
She puts the meat in the oven, washes and cuts the veggies and starts them cooking.
She then takes the peelings to the compost bin, returning in time to see the pot boiling over.
She cleans up the mess and sits down for a moment.
Just as her padded rear hits the seat, her husband walks in and in viewing the room, still uncleaned, he asks
“what did you do all day?”
