When I called to let Mario know I was on the way home, he was very proud and listed all the things he did today...even though he's got a little cold. I have to admit I was pretty impressed. He did the dishes, picked up the living room, vacuumed, did some laundry(which is amazing because in the last two years he's done 2 loads...seriously), organized his desk and other random surfaces and...actually put the cat food away(ok I'm a little bummed about that). I was so excited to be able to come home to a clean house and my man slave! The best gift ever!
But do you know what I love even more about Mario cleaning up? Playing "Where'd that shit go?" In such a small apartment, things need to have their own space. Because I work from home and tend to clean up a bit more, I know where their proper places are. Mario knows where things go, but sometimes gets "creative" with this. So when I got home today I made sure to take some photos to share his creativity...
This basket has been a problem for Mario. It's a random empty basket that I keep in the living room. Apparently he has a problem with empty baskets. They need something in them. So he kept putting my favorite pillow from the couch in it with another smaller basket on top...? Yeah weird. I empty it. He fills it back up. This has been a silent battle with us. Now he has found another place for it...on top of the microwave
This I didn't notice at first. The laptop in the cat bed. Well, why not...the cats don't use it until it really gets cold.
Wine in a random basket on the bookshelf. My mom left this basket here a week ago. Mario doesn't like empty baskets...now there's wine in it.
The hand vac with the books. Interesting. I wouldn't have thought to put it there. I usually keep that hidden in the kitchen not out on display.
And my favorite...the frog mask on the guitar. I don't what to say...creative?
I love when Mario cleans! I'm sure there's more stuff in random places, I just wanted to save some surprises for tomorrow.
