cooperative cleaning

My friend Christina and I were both commiserating about house cleaning. Lord knows we shouldn't especially given all the advances in technology that the modern housewife has to help her out. Let's face it washing machines, dish washers, vacuum cleaners...what used to take days can be done in hours now. In spite of this we were complaining. So sort of as a joke, we agreed to clean each other's houses together; we thought it might be fun.

This morning I went to her house and the two of us cleaned like mad-women for two hours. It was amazingly productive. We got three bathrooms, one bedroom, the kitchen and the front entry cleaned. Over to my house, a quick break for lunch and then another full-scale attack. We got two bathrooms, a bedroom, the living room, the dining room and the front entry done. It was amazing how much fun it was and how well it worked. The best part is walking into a room that you didn't clean and finding that it is clean. What an amazing thing!

I've never heard of anyone else doing this before but it was fun...who knows, it might catch on LOL.
