The war against grime

I had a feeling that there was something in the wind. There seemed to be an unnatural quiet and I had a premonition that something dreadful was going to happen. It was as though there was a dense fog bank and I knew something was out there but I couldn’t see it and I couldn’t hear it but I knew that something wicked was coming my way. I did not know how to prepare for it or what I should guard against. I became jumpy and irritable and lost what little power of concentration that I had. I wanted to crawl into a deep hole and pull a large rock in behind me. I began to wish that whatever was about to strike would do so and then perhaps I could deal with it.

It was a Tuesday morning that the blow fell; the Earth quaked, lightning struck and I learned of my fate. I realized that there was nothing that I could have done either to prepare myself for it or to have prevented it. There comes a time when resistance is futile and a man, if he has any smarts at all, must surrender and accept his fate. There was no place to run and I couldn’t hide. The Supreme Being of the House announced that she was about to launch the Spring Cleaning. It is not Spring but she declared, that since I was just sitting around the house taking up space, We might just as well get started. I feel that I must define the word We. When she says We, We is not the we Noah Webster had in mind. We means that I shall be under close supervision for the next few days; that’s what We means.

We first had to get organized -- which meant launching a successful attack on the must, dust, mold, and mildew that had somehow, unbeknownst to me, occupied our house. We had to mobilize a vast array of brooms, mops, pails, dust cloths, and vacuum cleaners and then We launch a successful attack on the forces of Dirt and Dust that had somehow taken possession of the house.

Well, the battle ground is a two story house with eight dirty rooms, two dusty baths, a dirty basement, and a double attached garage that, apparently to some, is in complete disarray and is in dire need to array. The plan is to start at the top in the bedrooms. The bed had to be stripped and then disassembled, the drawers had to be removed from the dresser and the contents dumped in a pile. Bed, dresser, night table, and lamps were removed from the room. The ceiling, beams, and log walls must be vacuumed. The closet emptied and clothes sorted. Once the closet is cleaned some of the clothes wi .....
