During the time that i was between jobs, I stayed at home getting bored every day as I browsed and applied for vacancies that I could find in the craigslist or monster.com
It was during this time that I decided to clean the house, room for room.
I started with the kitchen. I discovered that my ref was colored pearl white and not peach. hehehe.
I scrubbed it so hard that it sparkled and smelled pine.
While doing this chore, I forgot my anxiety of not having a job.
I cleaned next the stove. The greases and the hardened food crumbs that accumulated under the stove bid good-bye.
By the time I finished the whole house, i felt tired but was happy.
