So our licensing representative came over last Friday. She told a story about a woman she had known who was very eager to make sure she got everything perfectly on code, etc. When the woman got new fish, the rep asked very dead pan, "did you get them vaccinated?". The woman, of course, was very upset, she hadn't even thought of that! You might know that fish can't be vaccinated, but I heard this story and thought, "I'm that woman!"
I wanted to make sure our house was clean for the visit.....not just, hey, make sure you pick up your shoes clean....more like washing things you haven't thought to wash since last Spring clean. Evidence of my mania:
When I got to washing dishes, I got the table cleaned off. When I got the table cleaned off, I moved on to the countertops. When I got the countertops cleaned off, I started on the floor. When I was washing the floor, I noticed how dirty the front of the cabinets were..........
Little Bean, helpful and eager to clean, decided that she needed to be involved in the floor washing. I told her she could clean the cabinets while I worked on the floor. She happily dug in.......and was disappointed when I didn't move the fridge for her to clean behind (promises that she could do it next time I moved the fridge appeased her for now).
What happened when the licensing rep came over? She didn't even go in the kitchen.....but hey, my cabinets look great!
This weekend is big excitement. Race day is Saturday, but my sisters are all going to be in town for one sister's bridal shower Sunday, so this will be an action-packed, sister-filled weekend and I can't wait!
