Guilt Trip

Yesterday I decided a little deep cleaning before the holidays would be a good idea. I set about on my kitchen – cleaning out all the cabinets, wiping the insides and outsides down, and rearranging their contents back in. Later in the afternoon, after having spent the day hard at work, Calvin came in as the contents of the fridge were unloaded, all the shelves and drawers drying on the table from being washed.

Calvin said: “Mom, what are you doing?”

“I’m cleaning out the fridge” I said, a little proud of myself.

“Oh, well that’s not what I would be doing if I were you.”

“What would you be doing?” I asked – I should have know better.

“Well, I would be playing with my kids.”

Suddenly my clean fridge and cabinets did not seem so spectacular.

Point taken.

Today we’re going to do Thanksgiving and Christmas art projects to our hearts content.

I bet the kitchen gets really messy.
