You know how people say that if you do a little bit of cleaning each day, eventually a whole lot of stuff is clean? I’ve never really subscribed to that – I’ve been more of a “give me a whole day and I’ll attack the whole job and feel overwhelmed and not finish it” type.
But over the last week I’ve given my apartment a thorough cleaning by doing exactly that – a big start on Sunday and then some cleaning each morning and each evening.
And you know what? My apartment is clean! Cleaner than it’s been since the day I moved in. There are a few things left to do – I still haven’t scrubbed out the refrigerator. A couple small things still need to get put into the storage box that was put away before I found them. But they’re minor details compared to the massive amount that I’ve accomplished a little at a time.
In other news – as part of the cleaning process, I moved Cinnamon’s cage to a different position in the living room. Now she’s sitting on a toy that she’s never paid any attention to before. Interesting how a shift in perspective can change everything.
