Clean up, clean Up!
Everybody, everywhere!
Clean up, clean up!
Everybody do your share!
Clean-up song from the monkey’s preschool (and, come to think of it, every program I’ve done with her for the past almost-three years. It’s, like, so annoying. And, now you have it in your head! Mwahahaha!)

HOLLAAAAHHHH! It’s time for WHAT? Giveittome! WHAT? Giveittome! WHAT? IT’S TIME FOR THE CHEATY SUMMER CLEANUP! YOU IN, GORGEOUSES?

As with EVERYTHING, we are LATE for SPRING cleaning. Because we are LATE for everything. Always. It’s in our blooood. We have accepted this. There is no fixing this.

But, MAYBE, this first-ever CHEATY SUMMER CLEANUP will help us with our lateness. Like, when I go to get a t-shirt, or something, I won’t have to sift through my maternity clothes from three years ago to find one…. And, maybe, when I move all my books OFF of my night-table and onto, say, a SHELF — maybe then I’ll be able to SEE my alarm clock and know what time it is. Maybe then I won’t be late for stuff?

So, you in?

Here’s what I’m doing for this year’s first-ever ANNUAL SUMMER CLEAN-UP. And, it’s all happening this weekend….

FRIDAY (aka TODAY): HAIRCUT (eeee!); SHOPPING for a FEW quality essentials (to tide me over while I lose weight).
SATURDAY: CLEAN OUT DRESSER AND CLOSETS — get rid of EVERYTHING except for the bare essentials (and donate it all to charity, of course).
SUNDAY: THE TOYS — clean up THE TOYS.
MONDAY: REWARD WITH FACIAL!!! CLEAN OUT MY VERY PORES!!!

Yes, we are getting a haircut AND a facial. Hallelujah!

In the meantime, look who inspired me to clean myself the frick up and start fresh:

She keeps telling me “I will ALWAYS love you, Mama.” MELLLLLLTTTT! And, her sweet DANCING spirit inspired me all day today. It takes so little to make her happy. Why does it take SO MUCH for me? Time to CLEAN. UP.

Also inspiring me…? You know it!

Of course, it’sgrandma has been on my case to do stuff for myself. She practically MADE the hair appointment for me. AND, she’ll be babysitting when I get my facial.

So, you in, Gorgeouses?

In the spirit of this CHEATY SUMMER CLEAN-UP, there WILL BE A CONTEST. Stay tuned for deets!
