Gag-tastic

That's really the only way to describe a morning spent deep-cleaning the refrigerator. I'm not talking just a search-and-toss mission. I mean a serious, remove everything, take out the shelves, scrub and scrape, take-no-prisoners deal. You know that lovely substance that lettuce becomes after a long period of neglect? Yeah. Ew.

It sure feels good to have it done. But there's something about taking on a task like that while 20 weeks pregnant with a head cold that makes you feel like you've just participated in some sort of triathlon. After my fifth head rush of increasing magnitude, I took it as a sign that my body was screaming at me to sit the heck down and leave the freezer for another day. Point taken!

I can now rest my gag reflux until Thursday...bathroom cleaning day.

Who said the life of a stay-at-home-mom wasn't glamorous?

    I too know that lovely substance lettuce becomes! Yuck! Glad you got it done. Hope you take it easy now and try not to make yourself sick on bathroom cleaning day! Oh, and I really should clean my fridge, too...but it can wait until another day. :D

  3. Oh LAURA! Bless your sweet heart. I'm curious as to what motivated such a deep clean? ;)

    I hope you put your feet up and rest the rest of today!
