Well done, and one of the best uses of present-tense storytelling I've seen here.
I can relate to this. I have 5 kids and this week plan on enlisting their help in cleaning the house for Christmas - while their father goes out to work! A humourous piece that was well written. I enjoyed this.
Nicely done! I enjoyed the allusions to the Navy...very fun. And the double-washing of the floor made me remember the days when I was growing up and we had a coal furnace. There truly was a layer of soot everywhere after a long winter!!

Great story, Linda! I didn't write earlier as I was trying to read alot of entries in a short time. I love your writing, but you turned into a boy this time; is that to throw us off? Your down home humor makes me laugh - and it is all so Real. Thanks for giving me my Smile-A-Day...keep up the good work. (JCT) ...and God Bless.
