It’s no secret that I don’t love dusting. It drops to the bottom of the to do list whenever anything more exciting comes along. So, with the craziness and general checklist-failure of the summer, I ignored it and didn’t even feel guilty.
I convinced myself that a swipe here and there before guests came over was enough.
I told myself that once school started and I re-focused on my weekly cleaning tasks, I would make up for it.
And . . . I mean, I was only skipping summer. One measly little season of the year!
Somehow, taking the summer off from dusting seemed reasonable.
But then, last Friday, as I decided to do things right in an effort to make up for summer slacking, I found those.
Easter eggs, still hidden. Inside VERY dusty glasses on a very dusty shelf in a very dusty corner of my living room.
Which kind of blew away my I’ve-only-been-slacking-since-the-beginning-of-summer excuse. You know, since Easter was . . . in the Spring.
Reason #692 why I need weekly tasks. Otherwise, I might never think to dust.
