The daily to-do: Thursday June 16

Today is cleaning day. Not fun, but I do enjoy the sorta single-minded purpose of cleaning days. Don’t worry about having to think or organize thoughts; just shut up and scrub! Of course, it’s not ALL I have to do today…I have to do my regular chores, too. I wish I could just overlook them this one day….
