This is a fun piece that uses the letters in the word SPRING to share how the coming of the new season looks at my full house. You get a glimpse of my bad housekeeping, my crazy kids and my 12-year marriage, and hopefully the result is at least mildly humorous. For example:
"Spic n span house. Who doesn’t love a spic n span house? Well, me. I mean, I don’t really care. I’m happy as long as I have a path to walk along to get to my morning coffee and clean clothes and dishes. My husband, however, actually LIKES to do spring cleaning while I practice avoidance of it. I don’t remember that part being on our premarital counseling test or it may have been a deal breaker (for him!). I try to put off all my errands and other plans until I know he’s itching to do spring cleaning, then I sneak out of the house with the kids and leave him to his passion."
