I mopped the floor a few days ago; and while I did it, I thought...
~ How long has it been since I mopped this floor anyway?
~ Does the fact that I can't even remember the last time mean that it's been a REALLY long time ago, or is it possible that I did it more recently and just sort of forgot about it? ;-)
~ If my Facebook friends knew how long ago I last mopped this floor, would they all suddenly unfriend me? ;-)
~ Thank You, God, that when my parents were choosing the tile for this floor, they didn't choose white or another light color! These darker shades in the tile work so much better at concealing dirt. What would I have done if they had chosen white??? ;-)
~ Hmmm...so that dark streak that I thought was part of the tile? It wasn't. It just disappeared when I mopped over it. Interesting.
~ I don't know what kind of scientific reaction happens; but some of these food particles, when allowed to rest on this tile floor, have mysteriously turned into a type of cement. They are NOT coming off! Where's my jackhammer when I need it? ;-)
~ Whew, this is quite a workout. My heart rate is elevated, arms are pumpin' some iron (is there iron in my mop?), legs are doin' some lunges, abdomen is holdin' it all together. I'm gonna lose weight today, for sure! ;-)
~ Ouch! I'm not as young as I used to be. Oh, my aching back. I'd better take a break.
~ If I mopped more often, it sure wouldn't be this difficult or take this long. I'll get right on that...
~ When this floor gets mopped next week, I am not going to be the one to do it. I'll give one of my boys the job, and they'll think it's great fun to get to splash around with a bucket of water and a mop on this floor!
~ Maybe I should jot down all these thoughts and turn this into a blog post. It might make someone out there smile. Either that, or make them pat themselves on the back because they would never be so lax about mopping their kitchen floor. One or the other. :)
