Bewitched and Bedazzled by my Mop

This has nothing to do with running (oops, forgot to go again, my goodness, look at the time!) or technology, or art, or dogs, or my brilliant career, or anything else that I usually write about, in my random way.

But then, you're used to that, right?

This is a HOUSE WIFE post! My little boy was home sick, so I decided to actually step away from my computer, make him tea with honey, cook a few things from scratch, mop the floor and some laundry today. This is newsworthy, I swear, for me.

Here's my Samantha Stevens moment #173: today I re-discovered Mop and Glow for my hard wood floors, and the nifty Swiffer-type flat mop that comes with it. The mop pad sticks on the bottom in a Velcro-like way, and you can just wash it when you're all done.

This little system does provide effective cleaning, I must admit, and I feel better about my "Green Cleaning" attempt, since I'm not throwing away all those disposable Swiffer pads, which always makes me feel al bit guilty. Which I so do not need, since I already have guilt about NOT cleaning enough.

Double negative guilt about housework is bad, bad, bad. Don't get me started on not starting...

If only I could twitch my nose like Samantha and clean by magic, I could skip all the hard work of actually mopping. Too bad I can't get in shape with a nose twitch too, and skip the actual running part.
Now that would be a trick.

I meant mop the floor and do some laundry, but mopping the laundry sounds like a really good idea.

I am sooo relieved to hear I am not the only one out there who mops their laundry. ;-)
