Upon awakening this morning, I was overcome by the sudden and unexpected need to clean the house. And I mean clean. I went at it for several hours and it’s still not all done, although I made a fair amount of progress. Such was my sickness, that I moved and vacuumed under my bed. And I got rid of stuff. A lot of stuff. the more stuff I got rid of, the more I wanted to get rid of even more stuff. Fortunately, trash pickup is tomorrow (since today was a holiday). There is line of trash bins, and boxes in front of my house. It felt good, though, like getting a short haircut after allowing your hair to grow a little too long. Or mowing the lawn in the spring after being out of town for two week.
