Folks are coming for a ritual this evening. I have to mop the floor. The WetJet isn’t working. I can’t find my mop. There’s nothing else to do but get on my hands and knees, and scrub with water and Pine-Sol.
As I’m doing this, I’m humming:
Of course, the title of this post has nothing to do with the need to scrub the floors by hand occasionally. It’s something I’ll have to do, with or without a princess, even if I had magical talking mice.
It’s also part of an HP’s job.

Now that song is going to be stuck in my head all day.
Alternatively, you could use a hand towel wrapped around the base of the Wet Jet as a makeshift mop so you don’t have to be on your hands and knees?
Err… umm… what can I say that won’t make it sound like I was too stupid to think of that?
I’ve got it! It was good for me to show some humility. Yeah, that’s it. Good excuse, right?
Even though it hurts my knees like the dickens, scrubbing floors on hands and knees is the best way to see ALL the dirt, attack it, and get rid of it. I always feel very accomplished after cleaning this way—not to mention sore and achy. But sometimes, we need to become more acquainted with the “dirt” in order to clear it out of our lives, so on hands and knees seems to be the appropriate posture. For all sorts of cleaning! 🙂
