I want to buy a small freezer for my kitchen,
But first I need to decide whether or not to replace the kitchen floor
Which had become extra dingy over time.
Even though the floor gets mopped regularly,
It has continued to look worse and worse,
So I decided to try something new.
Baking soda removes dark stains on my stainless steel sink,
So why wouldn’t it work on a linoleum floor?
It took a little extra elbow grease,
(Actually quite a lot of elbow grease),
But it worked.
When my cleaning girl came to do her chores,
All she had to do was rinse my kitchen floor with clear water
To remove the rest of the baking soda grit.
She was fine (because she’s in great shape).
My floor looks spotless.
But I can hardly move my arms and shoulders.
I apparently used muscles that haven’t been used in months,
I can’t cut veggies or cook supper (heh, heh).
I can barely lift my hands to the computer keyboard.
I’m developing a wonderful new relationship with my heating pad.
All because I want to buy a little freezer for the kitchen,
And I cleaned the floor instead of working on my novel.
Have a great weekend.
