Here's a Little Secret

Today I'm making soup and cleaning house, and it occurred to me that I might be sitting on the greatest secret of all time. You want to know what makes house cleaning fun? I put on my favorite musicals while I do it, so as I'm on my hands and knees scrubbing the wooden floor, I'm singing along at the top of my lungs with Fraulein Maria as she yodels "I Have Confidence." While I fold my laundry I dance along with Marion the Librarian, and while I dust the furniture or rub leather conditioner into my battered old couch I'm humming along with Judy Garland as she finds love during "Clang Clang Clang Went the Trolley."

What can I say. I might be a nutter, but at least I'm having fun. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm about to miss "76 Trombones," and so I must run. Want to watch it with me?

I do the same thing! Music Man and Sound of Music are one and two respectively. Luurrvvve them and all musicals. It's the only way I can stay motivated to clean, the only reason I look forward to cleaning.

(BTW, great to have you back! I clicked on your bookmark accidently and was pleasantly surpirised to see new posts. YAY!)
