Spring Cleaning

< facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Dear Adults,

Diwali is right around the corner and you know what that means don’t you? Oh don’t worry, I didn’t either! Mom says it means we have to spring clean the house. When I overheard a conversation between my parents which went “We better get on to cleaning the house now!” I was thrilled that she would think of asking for my help.

She muttered something like “I could do without Gia’s help you know!” (with air quotes around the word help) but I knew she was just being nice. I couldn’t let her do all of that work on her own. Like I’ve said before “It is ones aim to be productive in life.”

So despite of all her protest, I have already had time to:

Enlist the right allies


Sort out the books I need and the ones I don’t any more.

Clean out the kitchen cabinets

I’ve mailed some important packages- all by myself

And as you can see, I am not one to shy away from the heavy lifting either

I am nothing if not helpful and my mother is nothing if not a nitpicker. It’s been a couple of days and the house already looks like it’s going to be in top shape in time for the event.

As I’ve said before: The key to being productive is time management.

Hope you are being as productive and “helpful” as I am.

  16. Ugh – I am definitely not productive when it comes to deep cleaning. It needs to be done though!

    • Ugh is right. And sadly so is the fact that it needs to be done.
