Clean My Space

TW stumbled into Melissa Maker through something at work and decided she needed to read Clean My Space — so she did.

And then she got all obsessive about cleaning, and told me that I wasn’t doing it right and that she was going to take over cleaning the house. Hah.

I shrugged and told her I’d be happy to sit out on the deck with a book while she cleaned the house. So I did and she did.

Oy.

She also tried to make me squeegee the tub/shower. That didn’t go so well. I’m bad with a squeegee. Also, I tend to walk away from the tub before it’s done draining and by the time I come back, the tub is already dry. Whatever.

For the first week or two after she read the book, she was obsessively wiping things and vacuuming things and talking about cleaning products and basically driving me nuts. Thankfully, she’s eased up a bit, (though the house is kind of messy right now, lol), but she did order a Mopnado (eyeroll) on PRIME Day and that will arrive today. I’m looking forward to sitting out on the deck while she mops all the things.

Oh, about the book… I read it too. It was fine. But, I already knew how to clean my space. The S method and the W method and starting at 12:00 etc. Quick clean vs deep clean (or whatever it is she calls them, I can’t remember now.) Probably the only thing that I hadn’t really thought about was focusing on the areas of the house that really bug me (us?) when they’re cluttered or not clean — though upon reflecting on the idea, I decided I’d already been doing that. So. Anyway. The book, I read it. It was fine. TW was obsessed, in the way that TW gets obsessed with things. Ask me a month from now whether she’s still doing the cleaning…
