I Must Have Been Ill

9 05 2012

I had people coming over on Sunday so Saturday I started to do the down and dirty cleaning of the house. Away with dog fur! Away with cat hair! Away with dust.  Away with grime! I started feeling funny so I asked Hubby to check and see if I had a temperature. He had been out in his shop so he kindly checked his hands for dirt before feeling my forehead, neck, and cheek. “No, I don’t think you have a fever. Why?” he said. “Because I was just vacuuming the dining room and I got this giddy feeling of joy and happiness. I was enjoying cleaning!” He agreed that this could only be caused by a virus.

Well, what ever that virus was it was a vicious. I kept cleaning all day long. I must have vacuumed for 45 minutes and then I began on the kitchen, all the while filled with the giddy feeling of home maker happiness. This was my house! I was making it clean and beautiful! Is there some kind of Martha Stewart virus going around?

I am happy to report that, three days later I seem to be over what ever that weird illness was. I did very little around the house yesterday, as least in the cleaning category. Whew!  Although I have to say that just talking about it makes me want to dust…

I get that virus every 4 to 5 months. Out of the Blue, I start vaccuuming and cleaning the bathroom. I just got over it last weekend when I steam-cleaned the carpet.

If you start making doilies from recycled tissues, call 9-1-1. That is a sure sign the the Martha virus has spread to your brain and drastic treatment is required. 🙂

The first thing I would have asked is if I was pregnant! Don’t you get those nesting instincts then? Take 2 margaritas and put on some wild music. It will go away.

If you run out of things to clean and are still infected with your virus, feel free to come to my house.
