My coworker was not at the office today, so while the cat is away, the mouse will clean. I spent 3 hours cleaning the office, sorting supplies, and putting up a few Christmas decorations. I brought home two large bags of stuff for recycling which (I hope) she will never miss.
Sometimes I find cleaning to be therapeutic. Which isn't to say I really like to do it, but it does give one a good feeling when it is finished.
