Rich people do spring cleaning too. Liz Taylor is completely exhausted after spraying Windex on her diamonds.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with
"Eyes of a Child"
30 March 2004
Today was the big day. The first shower in the new bathroom.
It all works beautifully, I've moved in my new towels, a temporary bath mat (till I can get back to Bed, Bath & Beyond to exchange what I bought before), and all the little things like soap dish, toothbrush holder, and glass that I bought. It's all coming together nicely. Still have a piece of furniture to buy to put over the tank of the toilet, but that will come when I find the right piece.
But it's now a working bathroom and I am very pleased.
Today was all about getting clean. Not only the test drive for the new bathroom, but washing all the stuff I sweat in all weekend in Chicago.
I also cleaned out the shelves at the supermarket and brought it all home! We were out of just about everything (for breakfast this morning, Walt had reheated chinese garlic rice left over from a dinner the night before we left for Chicago).
I spent the afternoon getting things ready for a company dinner. Some friends from Sacramento came to dinner. They are friends from college and have had us to dinner at their house many times over the years, but it's only with this born-again clean gene that I'm trying to cultivate that I feel comfortable inviting people to come here. Always such a strange sensation to know that we are expecting guests for dinner and not to have to go into a cleaning frenzy beforehand.
The house was just fine (after I'd cleaned up the dog barf off of the rug) and all I had to do was get dinner put together. I cleaned up as I went along and even had most of the dishes in the dishwasher before the guests left, so I face the rest of the evening without having to worry about a big mess in the kitchen.
So I'm clean, my clothes are clean, the rug is clean, the kitchen is clean.
A real clean-sweep kinda day.
