On the way home with my whole family in tow, I had flash of brilliance:
When we get home, let’s go in the house and clean it up. If we work together and clean for half an hour I bet we could have a totally clean house and we could all relax, I said.
The stuff was picked up and put away. The floors were swept and vacuumed. The dishes were done. The toys were picked up. The kids’ rooms were organized.
Everybody did their part.
Then we sat down to lunch. We went on a long bike ride. We all relaxed in a clean house.
